The gaming grapevine is abuzz with whispers suggesting that Assassin’s Creed Red could be the final installment to embrace the revered Origins design. Set against the backdrop of feudal Japan, the upcoming title is cloaked in intrigue, with only a handful of official insights available. Nonetheless, the rumor mill is working overtime, hinting at a potential 2024 launch and the intriguing possibility of dual protagonists to guide players through the narrative.
As of now, Ubisoft’s promotional energies are channeled towards their other offering, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, leaving enthusiasts playing the guessing game about the specifics of the enigmatically titled ‘Codename Red’. John Harker, a known insider with a history of accurate leaks, is the source of the buzzing rumor. According to him, Red is poised to break away from the Origins mold — the very framework that reshaped the series into a sprawling open-world action RPG saga. This transformation was notably visible in titles like Assassin’s Creed Origins, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

While it’s prudent to approach such claims with a degree of skepticism, it raises the tantalizing prospect of Ubisoft experimenting with fresh game designs in subsequent Assassin’s Creed titles. That said, given Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s nod to the stealth elements intrinsic to the series, it’s conceivable that the expansive open-world RPG model might make a comeback in future adventures.
The horizon looks promising for Assassin’s Creed aficionados. Beyond the enigmatic Red and the much-anticipated Mirage, there’s a slew of exciting ventures on the anvil. This includes a dive into virtual reality with Assassin’s Creed VR, the intriguing Assassin’s Creed Hexe, the mobile-centric Assassin’s Creed Jade, and the grandiose vision of Assassin’s Creed Infinity.
With Codename Red still under wraps and in the throes of development, patience is the key. Only the sands of time will unveil its true essence and the trajectory Ubisoft envisions for this iconic series.
