Assassin’s Creed has been Ubisoft’s premier flagship franchise for well over a decade and a half at this point, and unsurprisingly, the company is looking to invest in it even further. As per a report published by Tom Henderson on Insider Gaming, there are currently a total of 10 Assassin’s Creed games in varying stages of production, of which several haven’t yet been officially spoken about. As per the report, the company is “going all in” on Assassin’s Creed, alongside “some other major franchises”.
One of those games is Project Nebula, a new title developed by Ubisoft Sofia, the studio that handled Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation and Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Reportedly, Project Nebula will have three different settings, namely India, the Aztec Empire, and the Mediterranean.
Then there’s Project Raid, a free-to-play four-player co-op title developed by Ubisoft Chengdu, which will allegedly feature playable characters from across the franchise’s history. Another unannounced title mentioned by the report is Project Echoes, a multiplayer game built on Ubisoft’s Scalar cloud computing technology, built by Ubisoft Annecy, which has previously worked on the multiplayer components of past Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell titles and provided support on The Division 2.
The report also mentions that a sequel to unannounced VR title Assassin’s Creed Nexus is also already being discussed internally by Ubisoft.
Of course, in addition to the aforementioned titles, Ubisoft also has a number of Assassin’s Creed titles in the works that have been officially spoken about by the company, including Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Codename RED, Codename HEXE, Codename JADE, and the multiplayer title Invictus.
As per the report, Ubisoft is looking to revert to the series’ annual release schedule. Though delays are never out of the question (especially with modern-day Ubisoft), the current plan (allegedly) is to launch Mirage and Nexus in 2023, Codename RED in 2024, Invictus in 2025, and Codename HEXE in 2026.
It’s also been claimed that Codename RED is in good shape behind the scenes and will feature two playable characters- read more on that through here.
