Ubisoft’s popular stealth-action franchise, Assassin’s Creed, has taken gamers to various historical settings over the years, and now it seems it’s heading to Japan in what is tentatively known as “Assassin’s Creed Codename Red.” While details about this new installment have been scarce, recent developments (via PCGamesN) suggest the release might be closer than expected.
The Assassin’s Creed series has been on quite a journey, with recent titles like Assassin’s Creed Mirage, AC Infinity, AC Hexe, and even rumors of a Black Flag remake. With so much happening in the Assassin’s Creed universe, fans may have wondered if Codename Red, set in feudal Japan, was still a distant prospect. However, a recent LinkedIn post by Arisa Lagunzad, a Ubisoft employee in business development and brand management, hints at a possible release shortly.
Lagunzad’s post is an open call for creative partners and collaborators for Codename Red, describing it as the “biggest blockbuster for 2024.” Japan has long been a requested setting among Assassin’s Creed fans, and Lagunzad’s post suggests that Ubisoft is actively seeking sponsorship for this exciting new title. Moreover, Ubisoft appears to be expanding the Assassin’s Creed franchise into multimedia, including podcasts and manga series, which will excite fans even further.
Amidst all this, it’s worth noting that Assassin’s Creed Black Flag is reportedly getting a complete remake, and details about Assassin’s Creed Hexe remain in mystery. Additionally, Ubisoft is working on Assassin’s Creed Infinity, an online hub that aims to connect players across the entire series. With all these developments, the news of partners being sought for Codename Red in 2024 raises hopes that the Japan-set sequel will see the light of day next year.
