A video purporting to show gameplay of Assassin’s Creed Codename: Jade has appeared online.
The mobile title, which takes place in ancient China, is billed by Ubisoft as a “AAA RPG.” The leaked gameplay, which features significantly improved graphics compared to other mobile Assassin’s Creed game, appears to use on-screen touch controls.
It’s unclear when the game is planned for release.
The game, which will allow players to create their own character, is thought to be developed by Tencent in collaboration with Ubisoft, however, the company has been unwilling to comment on this.
Codename: Jade is one of several Assassin’s Creed games planned for the future of the franchise.
Earlier this year, Ubisoft confirmed that the next two flagship Assassin’s Creed games after next year’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage, codenamed Red and Hexe, will release as part of the new Infinity franchise hub, the live service initiative announced last year.
Red, which is being made by Odyssey developer Ubisoft Quebec and has the same creative director, is the next big, Valhalla-like flagship title, set in Feudal Japan. It begins what Ubisoft is calling “period three” in the Assassin’s Creed series, meaning this is unlikely to be a 2024 game.
