We’ll go over the games and future projects mentioned during the Ubisoft Forward event below, and note down as much as we can about the Assassin’s Creed games.
Assassin’s Creed: Mirage
Assassin’s Creed: Mirage is described as the end of ‘Period 2’ AC games, that include Assassin’s Creed Origins, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Ubisoft states that Mirage will be more of a ‘Back to the basic’ kind of game, with more action-adventure, stealth, parkour, and more close-quarter combat.
The game is said to take place in the Middle East, during the ninth century in Baghdad, 20 years before the events in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Players take control of a familiar character, Basim Ibn Ishaq, and his journey being one of the Hidden Ones.
The game is being developed by a new but trusted Ubisoft studio, Ubisoft Bordeaux, that have previously worked on ‘Wrath of the Druids,’ a Valhalla DLC. Assassin’s Creed Mirage is set to launch in 2023 but has no confirmed date, though projects have also been announced!

Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red
Assassin’s Creed: Red is going to be the start the ‘third period’ of AC games, with Ubisoft Quebec being the development team, the same studio that gave us Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Creative director on Odyssey,, Jonathan Dumont, will also come back for Assassin’s Creed: Red.
The game will take place in Medieval Japan (1185–1603 CE) and we think it’ll be quite interesting to see their take on Feudal Japan, having featured their take on early Egypt in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey; along with having a game that features the Vikings in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and connecting their stories. According to the posters, it seems as though players take control of a samurai, which itself is an interesting concept.
Codename Red is going to be a Valhalla-type title releasing hopefully in 2024, but no officially date has been confirmed. We do know this is next in line after Assassin’s Creed: Mirage.

Assassin’s Creed: Codeman Hexe
Possibly the first Assassin’s Creed horror game? ‘Codename Hexe’ is said to feature themes of witchcraft, definitely something spookier than their usual action-adventure RPG treatment. ‘Hexe’ will be developed by Ubisoft Montreal, a renowned Ubisoft studio that has previously developed games like Watch Dogs: Legion and many more.
Although no release date has been announced, Clint Hocking, the creative director for ‘Codename Hexe,’ is well known for his work on Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Watch Dogs: Legion, and other titles. One of the key points made during the Ubisoft Forward event was that Ubisoft has now upgraded and improved its AI, with NPCs and surroundings being able to adapt and change their behavior as the story progresses.
Assassin’s Creed Mobile and Assassin’s Creed: Invictus
These two projects, Assassin’s Creed: Mobile and Assassin’s Creed: Invictus, are both far off into future. AC Mobile is going to be a free to play AAA-RPG that will take place in Ancient China. The game is described to be quite similar to Epic Games’ Genshin Impact, in which players take part in open-world live events, upgrade their characters, and personalize customizations!
