Codename Red, as the Assassin’s Creed franchise game is called, which will have Japan as its stage, may be released in 2024.
The reason for suspecting this has to do with the posting made on LinkedIn by Ubisoft’s business development and brand partnership executive Arisa Lagunzad, in which she said the company was looking for a Japanese partner to work on “the biggest release of 2024”.
Since the post was found today by Access The Animusit was supposedly edited to remove the mention of the year 2024, but LinkedIn’s translation of the original Japanese text still clearly says: “We are seeking a sponsorship partner for this Assassin’s Creed Codename Red title for next year.”
Original text translations via Google and DeepL also confirm that the game will come out in 2024.
The information matches the rumor released a few months ago, which claimed that Codename Red is expected to come out at the end of next year. Apparently the game is already well advanced, it will have two playable characters and a lot of focus on stealth.
This year will also see a new entry in the series, with the release of Assassin’s Creed Mirage on October 12th.
