Only a brief introduction was shown, but journalists managed to spot a ninja lurking in the shadows of feudal Japan. Ubisoft has confirmed that the game, now called Project Red, will be the next major installment in the open-world RPG series. It is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec, the studio that previously ran Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Project Red is one of three new Assassin’s Creed games. There’s also Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which started as a DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and later evolved into a small standalone game. The third game is Project Neo/Hex, which seems to take place in Europe during the witch hunt.
