Known as Project Red, this game is is reportedly an open-world affair like other mainline games, although Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier has claimed that the project is in fact part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity. He also backs up reports of an Asian setting.
Japan has been a long-requested setting for an Assassin’s Creed game by its fans, so there’s a strong c chance that Project Red could be it. VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb previously claimed that the new game will indeed take place in Japan.
Elsewhere, Ubisoft is also believed to be working on Assassin’s Creed Rift, which is the new game featuring Basim from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and will supposedly take place in Baghdad.
We won’t know for sure what Ubisoft has in store for the long-running franchise until September, at which point the publisher will host an event detailing the future of the Assassin’s Creed series.
