Ubisoft reportedly working on three unannounced Assassin’s Creed games
Up to nine titles are planned to be released in the next three years.
The Assassin’s Creed saga has been hanging by a thread. Fewer and fewer gamers are putting their trust in Ubisoft’s flagship franchise. Therefore, the French company seeks to remedy this and offer players the gaming experience they have been asking for in recent years.
Ubisoft is reportedly working on three unannounced Assassin’s Creed games that will return the franchise to its roots. If true, that brings the total number of Assassin’s Creed projects in development to an incredible nine projects!
Good news or very bad news?
Ubisoft gave some explanations about what they plan to do in the future. One of the franchises involved in this change has been Assassin’s Creed. It is a franchise that has lost a large percentage of fans due to the studio’s bad decisions in recent releases. This is a problem that Ubisoft has already addressed and they are looking to stop “milking” the franchise with annual games.
But, having said that, we have learned of a total of six potential projects in which the franchise is involved. Project Invictus, Codename Red, Codename Jade, and Project Nexus are some of the projects in the works. And, today, it was leaked that three new projects have been added to the list: Nebula, Raid, and Echoes. But, it is worth noting, that one of these projects could be linked to the remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
Still, there are a total of nine projects, including Assassin’s Creed Mirage, from this franchise that are in development. It has also been leaked that all these projects are planned to be released in a period of three years or less, something that would be totally the opposite of what Ubisoft assured us they would no longer do with the franchise.
So, on reflection, is it good news for Assassin’s Creed fans that they will have several games in the future? Or is it very bad news that Ubisoft is still planning to release games in the franchise in spades?
Clearly, nothing is confirmed, but let’s hope that this release window will be wider and that instead of being three years it will be six years. What we can authoritatively confirm is that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is looking to return to the beginnings of the franchise. It presents a more mature gameplay and story, the creed of the assassins is really important again, and many more elements that ensure that many fans will be happy with this release.
What do you think about the unannounced Assassin’s Creed games? Is it too many too soon? Let us know!
