Ubisoft has 5 Assassin's Creed games in the making

It’s information that I’ve been set on for several months, but with several new sources further corroborating the information, I’m finally confident to report on it.
Ubisoft will be revealing several new Assassin’s Creed games this weekend at Ubisoft Forward.
The first game is an extensive “deep dive” into Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which was leaked late last week on social media. Assassin’s Creed Mirage will take players to Baghdad to play as a young Basim.
Two other games, which will be a part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity are also set to be revealed. Assassin’s Creed Project Red and Assassin’s Creed Project Hexe.
Project Red will take players to Japan. Early concept arts depict a female samurai-like assassin, but players are likely to be able to play as both male and female.
Project Hexe (recently changed from Project Neo), understood to be in development at Ubisoft Montreal will take players in the darkest Assassin’s Creed game ever. It’s understood that Project Hexe is set during the witch hunt era in 16th century Europe. Project Hexe is understandably one of the more interesting projects and although I wasn’t able to report on the title until now, I did throw a slight hint on Twitter (sorry).
Another game, Project Jade will also be announced which is an Assassin’s Creed mobile title set in China in addition to the final DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
In addition, it’s also known that Ubisoft is developing a VR Assassin’s Creed title named Project Nexus, but it’s unclear whether or not the game will be revealed this weekend.

Mirage sounds the best so far if it's really going back to the older style.

And we have 4 Avatar movies in production and we have the entire catalogue of Marvel movies.

The video game industry is something to be considered news.

If they're finally doing a Japan setting for a proper console game then I will come back. Still feel exhausted from the franchise since 3 sadly.

This doesn’t make sense
Video game secrecy like they operating a bioweapons industry. How is it news that a successful game is getting a sequel? Only in the video game industry. We knew Dune 2 was in production early after the launch of the first film. Because it is not a grand secret like this industry.

Okay cool. And now with Tencent owning 49% of the company I expect nothing but the best.
except, they don't.

go back and rad the other article closely.

they bought into a company that has bought into the parent company of Ubisoft.

Multiplayer AC needs to make a comeback the gameplay was really fun and challenging, Mirage looks solid as well I really didn't have any gripes with the newest one honestly just some boss battles were annoying.

Good. Contrary to many people on this board, I do enjoy assassin's creed games a lot. I understand all the criticism they get and I agree but I still enjoy them.

Actually ac 1 could use a remake. I replayed and beat it earlier this year, and good god is it janky and just miserable to play. However the atmosphere is still top notch

Not Assasins's Creed though. Valhalla I think was their true cash cow.
Was it? I couldn't convince myself to get it. Origin was a huge disappointment to me, couldn't even finish it. I hated the RPG elements to it. Odyssey looked boring. Valhalla looked stupid.

The novelty for assassin's Creed games is really wearing off for me...

Tragic really, I feel the only decent game to come out of that company for a long time is R6 Siege, That was my FPS shooter fix for a long time.
 

Rest

All these years later I still chuckle at what a fucking moron that guy is.
I wouldn't have thought that this series was still making that much money. Origins was fun, and you could see the budget in everything, but I never though "this is great." Odyssey I couldn't get through the intro. It felt like I'd seen it all before. The watered down combat in those two games had worn thin by the time I was done with Origins, going in to Odyssey I wasn't interested in doing it again.

Valhalla is the biggest revenue-earning game in Ubisoft’s history

You’re part of the problem. :)
Yeah, i know, but i do like the games apart from AC 3, I won't be paying the price Ubisoft wants though, and ill wait until after release to check the game or game's don't have issues,

But if they make Mirage well and some of the others,then yeah im part of the problem :messenger_horns:

There are only 3 settings i want for AC. Japan, Cyberpunk & Space.
1 down, 2 to go lol

I'm also not sure why anyone is shocked 5 AC titles are being made, that doesn't sound all that different then how they did it last gen.

After AC Unity, they slowed things down and a team was removed from the rotation and longer development cycle was introduced.

Since then, I believe its been like 2 teams making the major titles and 2 other teams doing that side stuff like the mobile games and a team to do DLC.

The team doing Mirage is a new French team they started in 2017, AC Red is being made by Quebec the team that did Odyssey, AC Hexe will be made by Montreal, the team that did Valhalla and Origin, the rest of the mobile stuff is pretty much a continuation of the stuff we literally saw last gen, ie AC India, China, Russia etc

So.....anyone shocked at this must have been asleep or something last gen as this isn't really "news", if you read, pay very close attention, you'll realize you are not getting MORE AC titles, you are just getting them announced all together or something.

Jesus Christ.

This.

I love the Yakuza IP and have no major issues with AC, but I agree that massive amount of hypocrisy exist with this. As soon as Ubisoft does something, folks cry, bash etc.

2014 Unity comes out, missing faces and bugs....omg THE HORROR! HOW DARE THEY!
2015 CDPR puts out Witcher 3 with missing faces, bugs, corrupts saves.....no one bats a fucking eye lol

A huge disparity exist on how journalist and even consumers behave regarding this willing to give passes and not making negative comments towards publishers they like, for shit they bash other publishers for.

Keep in mind, I'm ok with this so long as the quality is there, I simply comment as an observer of this hypocrisy

Personally, I think people were mad at Ubisoft for milking the franchise: not giving it a chance to rest and also, expecting people to shell out for time saver bonuses and what not. Plus, they rushed it - arguably what was the last best AC game - out the door to make a date


Luckily I played Unity few months after launch and by then it was stable and completely awesome.

I wish Ubisoft would stick to dense, interesting sandboxes instead of full open-world AC games. I hope they do Mirage justice and that the sales let them know that people still want the classic AC formula
 
They should slap AC on the PoP Remake too, cause why not. It's anyway similar and while Mirage might take the series a bit more to tighter narrative (When was AC ever not way too big? Part one?), and a PoP AC could then remove the AC typical open world with tons of markers for secondary crap entirely.
