It sounds like Assassin’s Creed Mirage isn’t going to be the only Assassin’s Creed news during the Ubisoft Forward this Saturday, according to a new report from Bloomberg, confirming a write-up from earlier today by Try Hard Guides.
The report says there will be “several” new Assassin’s Creed game reveals during the event, including Mirage, a second game set in feudal Japan, and a third set during the Holy Roman Empire with a focus on witch trials. These games will be part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is meant to act as a platform for the series moving forward that contains multiple settings. While those will be the bigger, more traditional Assassin’s Creed games, the company will also be announcing some kind of mobile game, according to Bloomberg’s sources.
More Assassin’s Creed:
- Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla’s Free Roguelite Mode is Available Today
- The Relegation of Female Eivor in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Makes Even Less Sense Now
- A Bug is Preventing Players From Completing Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla’s Final Quest
Bloomberg reported on Assassin’s Creed Mirage earlier this year, which apparently began its life as a DLC update for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but was repurposed as a new game with focus on stealth akin to earlier games in the series. As for Infinity, Bloomberg also reported on it last year, which Ubisoft seems to be framing as more of a service platform kind of deal with multiple “entries” and settings to be housed within it. So if we’re going to see the feudal Japan and Holy Roman Empire games set within it, we may have a clearer vision as to what Assassin’s Creed Infinity will entail during Ubisoft Forward.
