According to Insider Gaming, Assassin’s Creed Red is currently in a full playable state and that we can expect an official update on the game in early 2024.
The site reports that the Japan-set adventurer is currently penciled in for a Holiday 2024 release window, although it warns that a delay may be possible given Ubisoft’s tendency to postpone some of its major games recently.
In terms of playable characters, the report reiterates that Assassin’s Creed Red features a male and Samurai and a female Shinobi. According to the Insider Gaming report, the Samurai is an African refugee who was taught in the ways of the Creed, and is believed to be based on the first African Samurai, Yasuke. The female is supposedly a lot more agile than the Samurai, although further info is being kept under wraps.
Elsewhere, one of the main features coming to Assassin’s Creed Red is reportedly going to be destructible environments, such as screen doors, which can be ‘slashed and broken open.’ It was previously reported that Codename Red will be the last game to employ the Origins formula.
Assassin’s Creed Red is one of many new entries in the franchise currently in development, the others being Assassin’s Creed Jade, Assassin’s Creed Hexe, Assassin’s Creed Invictus, and a remake of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
