Assassin’s Creed Red, the upcoming stealth action game from Ubisoft, is seemingly targeting a 2024 release. Assassin’s Creed Codename RED was first announced last September as the next major release in the long-running franchise, this time set in feudal Japan. While Ubisoft’s focus is all on Assassin’s Creed Mirage right now, it looks like a developer’s LinkedIn profile might’ve spilled the beans that Red is coming as soon as next year.
Access The Animus first spotted the LinkedIn profile of Ubisoft’s business development and brand partnership executive Arisa Lagunzad, which was updated earlier this year to mention that the company was seeking Japanese partner to work on “the biggest blockbuster of 2024.” Since the news gained traction this week, the profile was recently updated to remove all mentions of a 2024 release window, though LinkedIn’s translation of the original Japanese text still reads, “We are seeking sponsoring partner for this title Assassin’s Creed Codename RED for next year.”
At this point, it’s all but confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Red will release sometime in 2024 – potentially towards the October/November window which is when most mainline games in the series tend to release. This news lines up with a February report from Insider Gaming which also claimed that the title would release next year.
Of course, Assassin’s Creed Red is just the working codename for the game as it doesn’t have an official title yet, though that might change soon after Mirage‘s release when Ubisoft switches gears towards the next entry in the franchise.
If previous reports are to be believed, then Assassin’s Creed Red will feature two playable characters and a strong focus on stealth. Ubisoft describes it:
“Experience the full Shinobi fantasy in our future open world RPG title set during Feudal Japan: Assassin’s Creed Codename RED.”
