Ubisoft describes their new mobile game set in ancient China as a “AAA RPG.” The leaked demo appears to make use of on-screen touch controls and offers vastly enhanced visuals compared to previous mobile Assassin’s Creed games. Uncertainty surrounds the game’s scheduled release date.
Tencent is rumoured to be working with Ubisoft on the game, which would let players design their own characters, although the two companies have remained silent on the matter.
Assasin’s Creed: Codename: Jade is just one of several upcoming instalments in the series. Ubisoft’s live service effort, Infinity, was unveiled last year, and this year the company said that the next two major Assassin’s Creed games, codenamed Red and Hexe, will debut as part of the new Infinity brand hub.
Ubisoft Quebec, who developed Odyssey, is now working on Red, a Feudal Japan-themed flagship game that will be led by the same creative director. This marks the beginning of what Ubisoft is calling “period three” in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, thus it’s not expected to be out in 2024.
Hexe is the name given to the studio’s second ‘flagship’ game that will be released in the near future. Ubisoft Montreal is developing it, and the project’s creative director is Clint Hocking, who led the development of Far Cry 2 and Watch Dogs: Legion.
