After leaks, Ubisoft has unveiled the next Assassin's Creed game. As promised, it's called Mirage and will move the time-traveling franchise to 9th-century Baghdad.
Ubisoft said the game would return to the series' action-adventure roots without RPG features. Mirage will launch in 2023.
The first open-world Assassin's Creed game for smartphones is being developed by Ubisoft and is now called "Jade." It is set in ancient China and will allow players to choose their own avatar.
Additionally, Ubisoft seems to be developing an undisclosed mobile game for Netflix's gaming service; however, there are currently no specifics available.
The Quebec City office of Ubisoft is creating one of these games with the working title "Red," which will take place in feudal Japan.
Another project, code-named "Hexe," is being worked on by the Montreal team; not much is known about it yet, but it seems to include witches in some way.
The publisher also offered more details on Assassin's Creed "Infinity," an online hub connecting mainstream games and separate multiplayer projects.
