Four More Assassin’s Creed Games Reportedly Planned
Despite claims from dedicated franchise fans that the series has lost its way, Assassin's Creed has no intention of slowing down.
The successes of Assassin's Creed Valhalla and its DLC packs were clear as a launch title for the new generation of gaming, while the Viking adventure proved that even though the series has prominently moved away from its stealthy and sneaky kills, it can still prosper with a fresh focus on brutish action.
The future of the series is looking bright, with many games in the works, including a long-awaited travel to Witch Trials-era Europe and Ancient Japan. But as it turns out, it won't end there.
Four More Assassin’s Creed Games Are In The Works
It looks like Assassin's Creed Mirage and the games next in line for creation at Ubisoft aren't the only AC titles, as it looks like the company is putting all of its eggs in one basket with four more titles in early development.
Sources have reported to Insider Gaming (so take it with a pinch of salt) that there are three more Assassin's Creed games actively in the works at Ubisoft.
These are codenamed Nebula, Raid, and Echoes, as well as a VR title called Project Nexus. The sources claim Nebula will be developed by Ubisoft Sofia and is set in India, the Aztec Empire, and the Mediterranean. Raid is from Ubisoft Chengdu and is said to be a four-player co-op game with PvE features.
Finally, Ubisoft Annecy has reportedly pitched Echoes as a multiplayer title that will use the Ubisoft Scalar technology. Nexus is expected to be revealed to the world at this year's E3 conference, while the other three will come later.
Assassin's Creed Could Return To Yearly Releases
As Ubisoft heads back to its roots, it looks as though it could also be making a bold return to yearly releases for the Assassin’s Creed series, as indicated by the same sources reporting to Insider.
Whether this is a bad thing or not is up to the series' most dedicated fans, but either way, it seems like a wise business decision from Ubisoft.
With so many subdivisions of Ubisoft working on the series, it's hard to imagine that quality will drop off - and it's something that Assassin's Creed could benefit from. Call of Duty, watch your back.
