According to information published by Tom Henderson on Insider Gaming, Ubisoft intends to fully exploit the Assassin’s Creed license in the years to come. In addition to the major opuses already known, the publisher has instructed its various studios to work on four additional games.
Ubisoft has been going through a bad patch for several monthsmaterialized in particular by disappointing results on these latest games such as Just Dance 2023 and Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, postponements and cancellations (Skull and Bones) and strikes called by the publisher’s employees.
To put an end to this dark period, the French company chose to focus on these strong licenses, namely the games Far Cry, Tom Clancy and Assassin’s Creed of course. While Assassin’s Creed Mirage is expected in 2023 (the exact release date is not yet known), Ubisoft confirmed in September 2022 the development of three additional Assassin’s Creed games : Red, Hexe and Jade.
We also know that Ubisoft intends to launch Invictus Project, a multiplayer experience that takes shape in the universe of the hooded. Finally, we must add to this line-up a certain nexus projecta virtual reality title that is set to premiere at E3 2023.
Ubisoft will relaunch the Assassin’s Creed machine
From what we know, the development of these six games (including Mirage) is already well advanced. However and according to information shared by Tom Henderson ofInsider Gaming, three other unreleased titles stamped Assassin’s Creed are also in the design and prototyping phase.
They respond to code names Nebula, Raid and Echoes and would all offer very different styles. Regarding Nebula, we would find at its head Ubisoft Sofia, known in particular for having worked on the spin-offs Assassin’s Creed: Liberation and Rogue.

This title would include for the first time in the series three different settings : India, the Aztec empire and the Mediterranean. As for the Raid project, it would be in the hands of Ubisoft Chengdu and it would present itself as a cooperative free-to-play and 4-player PVE.
Let’s conclude with the Echoes project. Led by Ubisoft Annecy, renowned for its work on The Division 2 alongside Massive Entertainment, it would be a multiplayer component based on Ubisoft Scalar cloud technology.
As Tom Henderson points out, we don’t yet know when these three games are supposed to be released, but given the current timeframe for developing a AAA title (between 5 and 6 years), we should not expect a launch soon. .
