Ubisoft recently announced at Ubifoward that they are currently working on not just one, but two Assassin’s Creed titles, Assassin’s Creed: Mirage and Assassin’s Creed Codename Red. These two games will be different in scope as Mirage plans to bring back the classic take on the Assassin’s Creed franchise, with a smaller more in-depth story-heavy game, while Codename Red will follow the scale of Valhalla.
As many fans have been requesting for what seems like decades, Ubisoft is finally bringing the Assassin’s Creed franchise to Japan. Officially announced at Ubifoward 2022, players will embark on a new journey set in Feudal Japan. However, Ubisoft will have Mirage released in 2023, while Codename Red is still a ways out from release. Fans are itching to learn more about Codename Red and as that might take some time, YouTuber user TeaserPlay has made a fan-made concept video showcasing what they think Assassin’s Creed Codename Red will look like.
Developed on Unreal Engine 5, TeaserPlays showcases Fuedal Japan in a beautiful fashion. We see temples, different weather patterns, and serene locations all scattered across a sprawling map. I must remind you this is all concept footage, none of this is from Ubisoft, as the game is still kept under tight wraps. This gives players a little tease of what we should be expecting to see when the game does finally come to fruition. It will be surreal to finally get an AC game set in Japan, and the possibilities for the Assassin’s Creed Japan title are endless. But until we learn more about Codename Red, we will have to keep ourselves patient and watch this concept fan-made video!

On the other side of things, Assassin’s Creed: Mirage will follow a familiar character from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla — Basim Ibn Ishaq. The epic reveal trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Mirage trailer heads deep into the 9th century and takes place in the dense and sprawling city of Baghdad.
In a somewhat Aladdin-like initial sequence, viewers get a good look at Basim’s humble origins as a street thief in a Baghdad marketplace. This upcoming entry in the series seems to be taking the franchise back to its roots and this should be super exciting for all AC fans. The opening entries in the long-running franchises are some of the best, and if Ubisoft manages to nail that feeling in Mirage, we should be expecting an awesome game on the horizon.
