According to several sources, most recently, Bloomberg, Ubisoft will reportedly announce several Assassin’s Creed games during its upcoming showcase this weekend which would be consistent with the publisher’s recent claims to “unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed” at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward event. The Bloomberg report claims that the games to be revealed include two major entries and a mobile game. The games will also likely be a part of the Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which will be a partnership between Ubisoft’s Quebec and Ubisoft Montreal. The series/ platform will reportedly span several games from several eras. The first game is currently codenamed Red and is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec and will reportedly take place in feudal Japan, while the second, codenamed Neo or Hexe, is reportedly being developed at Ubisoft Montreal and will reportedly be set in the Roman Empire during the witch trials.
