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

Assassin’s Creed Infinity: A hub for Red and Hexe
If we look forward to the definitive (and free) expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and a separate opus dedicated to Basim in the near future, there are plenty of other experiences awaiting players who are fans of Leap of Faith into the future, starting with the famous Assassin’s Creed Infinity. Since its announcement almost a year ago, this huge project has been intriguing and has been the subject of many questions. Therefore, it was normal to find him during this Assassin’s Creed Showcase, although it was brief.
And for good reason, Infinity is not a game in itself, but a hub where players can find, among other things, two new works: Assassin’s Creed Codename Red and Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe. The first will surely tell you something. In fact, her name had been leaked a few months ago. Assassin’s Creed will therefore take the path of feudal Japan to immerse us in the skin of a shinobi. A short sneak peek 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 is also the case for 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 guess 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 what period it will plunge us into (perhaps the time of the German witch hunts). Clint Hocking (Far Cry 2, Splinter Cell) is overseeing the project.
As for Infinity, whose principle we detail in another article, there is still an important point that emerges from this showcase. With this hub being 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 that happens because of the need to rethink the different self-employed so that they use these multi-mechanisms. Good news for fans of multiplayer games, but it remains to be seen what it will be once Infinity is introduced.
An open world Assassin’s Creed on mobile
Ubisoft also revealed it to us through a trailer Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade. This work takes place in China (between 2070 and 256 BC), but this is not its only peculiarity. In fact, it is an open world game designed for mobile devices. Therefore, the usual Assassin’s Creed mechanics have 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 assassin. Suffice it to say that all the bread of customization, increasingly present throughout the episodes, crosses a new course there. Assassin’s Creed Codename Jade therefore seems particularly ambitious, especially for mobile devices. So, we’re waiting to see what he has in store for us. No release date at the moment but we are promised that the game will arrive “early”. And it’s not the only AC mobile game planned.
Assassin’s Creed x Netflix
In fact, Ubisoft has mentioned to us a mobile game developed in collaboration with Netflix. The latter, once finished, will therefore be available in the application that has recently sought to expand its catalog of games. We know little at the moment except that the title is part of a more global partnership with Netflix.
In fact, a live action series is being produced for the VOD platform. The information is not new, in fact it is almost two years old. And obviously, we will still have to be patient. The Assassin’s Creed series is only at the beginning of its development. On the other hand, we learned that the showrunner of the series will be Jeb Stuart (Vikings: Valhalla). If you’re not the patient type, you can always turn to other video content in the meantime: Beyond the Creed.
Beyond the Creed, Symphonic Adventure… Beyond the Games
On the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the license, Ubisoft has decided to make another small gift to the fans: a documentary looking 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 It will be available very soon on the Ubisoft and gTV YouTube channels.
Ubisoft also used 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 grand premiere will take place at the Grand Rex in Paris on October 29. But that is not all. If you’re the curious type, you can also get your hands on the officially licensed art book, new figures, the novel The conspiracy of the wizardsthe webtoon that follows 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 fans of the Assassin’s Creed universe, the present and the future promise to be rich in content of all kinds.
