Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories - Announcement Trailer
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey released in October 2018 and was supported with a significant amount of DLC, including the Fate of Atlantis story expansion and a story creator mode enabling players to craft their own quests and share them with the community.
Six upcoming Assassin’s Creed games were discussed during a Ubisoft product showcase last weekend.
The next entry in the series will be Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Set for release in 2023, it takes place in ninth-century Baghdad at the peak of its Golden Age and is described as a “special tribute to the first Assassin’s Creed”.
With gameplay focused on parkour, stealth and assassinations, Mirage marks a return to the action-adventure style of Assassin’s Creed games released prior to RPG-style series entries Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla.
The next flagship series entries after Mirage, codenamed Red and Hexe, will be released as part of the new Assassin’s Creed Infinity franchise hub.
Red, which is being made by Odyssey studio Ubisoft Quebec and has the same creative director, is set in feudal Japan.
Ubisoft is also working on a standalone Assassin’s Creed multiplayer game and two mobile series entries.
