Rumor has it that Assassin’s Creed Red will be the last game in the series to follow the Origins formula, marking an end to Ubisoft’s flagship franchise’s era. The game, set in feudal Japan, is shrouded in mystery with limited official details available. However, rumors and leaks suggest a potential 2024 release and the inclusion of two playable protagonists.
Ubisoft’s current focus is on promoting Assassin’s Creed Mirage, leaving fans uncertain about when more information about Codename Red will be revealed. The rumor, originating from reliable insider John Harker, claims that Red will deviate from the Origins formula, which transformed the series into a massive open-world action-RPG experience with Assassin’s Creed Origins, followed by Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

While the claim should be taken with caution, it is possible that future Assassin’s Creed games will take on a different shape. Nevertheless, Ubisoft could still revisit the open-world RPG format in future titles, considering Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s return to the franchise’s stealth roots.
Excitingly, the franchise has a bright future with various projects to anticipate. Alongside Red and Mirage, fans can look forward to the Assassin’s Creed VR game, Assassin’s Creed Hexe, the mobile game Assassin’s Creed Jade, and the ambitious Assassin’s Creed Infinity experience.
Codename Red is currently in development, and only time will reveal its true nature and the direction the series will take going forward.
