Assassin’s Creed has been reserved lots of news for this night in September. The 10th of this ninth month of 2022 will go down as the day that Ubisoft opened up to the community with a vast glimpse into the future of its most important saga and, for the first time in its history, will take us to Japan. That’s right, the location most desired by a generation of gamers will come true with Assassin’s Creed Codename Red.
Codename Red has been swarming the network for several months, but it has not been until today that we have received confirmation by the Gauls, as part of the Ubisoft Forward, of the jump to the country of the rising sun as a unique and novel setting in the saga. We are talking about the biggest Ubisoft project in years with one of the most desired eras by its community, so the expectations are high.
Assassin’s Creed: Rising Sun or Assassin’s Creed: Sengoku. The truth is that the Japanese feudal setting has rumored since over a decade ago and has had various names throughout that time. None seems to have come to fruition, if finally Ubisoft had an idea to call them that, but now it is Ubisoft Québec the one in charge of taking us to Japan with a massive role playing project and whose final name we do not know.
What we do know are small details what we will finally see in the project. Ubisoft Quebec, who led the development of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, will be tasked with bringing back one of the most divisive aspects of the gaming community: the RPG. It is clear that, seeing the trajectory of the technical team, many will feel alienated by their approach even today, many months before its premiere. We can say with total certainty, thanks to tonight’s event, that Codename Red will be a action rpg Y open world with a strong narrative load without neglecting the benefits of the role.
Although we are facing a project that has yet to flourish, the leadership of Jonathan Dumont —creative director of the aforementioned AC Odyssey and Immortals Fenyx Rising— it seems that it will follow the line of that massive RPG that we have seen in the last trilogy started by AC Origins. This means that far from AC Mirage, Codename Red will follow the same line as Valhalla, although with a capital importance of the shinobithe Ninjas of the Japanese feudal era.
At the moment, we do not know if he will recover those fantasy elements that have accompanied the latest games in the saga. A development that still has a lot of work ahead not only to elucidate what the final name of the project will be, but to complete it with a view to 2024 at the earliestleaving room for AC Mirage to settle in the market.
