Game news Assassin’s Creed: Infinity, Red, mobile game … Everything you need to know after Valhalla
During Ubisoft Forward, an entire section was devoted to the studio’s flagship franchise: Assassin’s Creed. We have had news of Valhalla, Mirage, but also of all the other AC experiences to come. And the least we can say is that the future of the license looks quite challenging.

Assassin’s Creed Infinity: a hub for Red and Hexe
If we are expecting the latest (and free) Assassin’s Creed Valhalla expansion and a separate work dedicated to Basim in the near future, there are many more experiences awaiting players who are fans of the leap from faith to faith. the famous Assassin’s Creed Infinity. Since its announcement nearly a year ago, this grand project has been intriguing and has been the subject of many questions. It was therefore normal to find him during this Assassin’s Creed Showcase, even if it was short.
And for good reason, Infinity isn’t a game in itself, but rather a hub on which players can find, among other things, two new works: Codename of Assassin’s Creed Red and Codename of Assassin’s Creed Hexe. The first will definitely tell you something. His name was in fact leaked a few months ago. Assassin’s Creed will then take the path of feudal Japan to immerse us in the skin of a shinobi. A short teaser has been released, but we still have very little information on this next big Assassin’s Creed game, except that Jonathan Dumont (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey) is the creative director.
This also applies to another project Ubisoft Montreal is working on: Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe. Even more enigmatic, the game promises to be a completely different experience from previous games, without further details. However, the short teaser and its name allow us to understand the theme of this rather special work: witchcraft. If the wooden structures were a big clue, the word Hexe (witch in German) leaves little room for mystery. It remains to be seen what form this new Assassin’s Creed will take and in what period it will precipitate us (perhaps at the time of the German witch hunts). Clint Hocking (Far Cry 2, Splinter Cell) is overseeing the project.
As for Infinity, the principle of which we detail in another article, there is one more important point that emerges from this showcase. As this hub is a way to connect all Assassin’s Creed players, the question of multiplayer necessarily arises. According to Marc-Alexis Côté, who plays an important role in the development of the license, Ubisoft is currently working on integrating an entire multiplayer section into this experience. And this goes through the need to rethink the different stand-alone so that they use these multimechanisms. Good news for fans of multiplayer games, but it remains to be seen what will be once Infinity is revealed.
An open world Assassin’s Creed on mobile
Ubisoft also revealed it to us through a trailer Codename of Assassin’s Creed Jade. This work takes place in China (215 BC), but this is not its only peculiarity. In fact, it is an open world game designed for mobile devices. The usual Assassin’s Creed mechanics have therefore been optimized for touch and should allow players to discover an Assassin’s Creed experience that is both familiar and innovative. On the program: parkour, secrets to discover, intense fights, but also a good dose of customization.
Small feature: for the first time, you will be able to fully create your own killer. Suffice it to say that the entire pan customization, increasingly present in the episodes, crosses a new course there. Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade therefore seems particularly ambitious, especially for mobile. We are therefore waiting to see what it has in store for us. No release date for the moment but we are promised that the game will arrive “soon”. And it’s not the only AC mobile game planned.
Assassin’s Creed x Netflix
Ubisoft has indeed mentioned us a mobile game developed in collaboration with Netflix. The latter, once finished, will then be available on the application that has recently tried to expand its game catalog. We know little for the moment, except that the title is part of a more global partnership with Netflix.
A live-action series is in fact in production for the VOD platform. The information is not new, in fact it is almost two years old. And of course, we’ll still have to be patient. The Assassin’s Creed series is only at the beginning of its development. On the other hand, we have learned it the showrunner of the series will be Jeb Stuart (Vikings: Valhalla). If you are not the patient type, you can always resort to other video content in the meantime: Beyond the Creed.
Beyond the Creed, Symphonic Adventure … Beyond Games
On the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the license, Ubisoft has decided to give another small gift to the fans: a documentary that looks behind the scenes of Assassin’s Creed. This documentary brings together developers and industry professionals (like Carole Quintaine, for example) who come to share their anecdotes and some neat details about this franchise that has become a cult. Unlike Netflix, no subscription is required. Indeed, Beyond the Creed is soon available on Ubisoft Youtube channels and gTV.
Ubisoft also took advantage of its showcase to remind you of the different ways to extend the Assassin’s Creed experience this year. Of course we find the Assassin’s Creed Symphonic Adventure immersive concert tour, whose world premiere will take place at the Grand Rex in Paris on 29 October. But that is not all. If you are a curious type, you can also get your hands on the official License Artbook, new stickers, the novel The magician’s conspiracythe webtoon following the adventures of Edward Kenway (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag) or just listen to the podcast Echoes of History. Suffice it to say that if you are a fan of the Assassin’s Creed universe, the present and the future promise to be rich in content of all kinds.
