New Assassin’s Creed game in development – Report

Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier claims a new Assassin’s Creed title is currently in development and is planned to release later this year or in early 2023.

The leak followed recent rumours that the next title in the popular series would be set in 15th century Mesoamerica and would centre around the Aztec Empire.

However, Schreier said sources have confirmed that this is not the case.

Rather, the game – code-name Rift – will be set in Bagdad and will follow the protagonist Basim — a member of the Hidden Ones who appeared in Valhalla.

the game was originally planned as an expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla but then morphed into a full standalone title.

While the title will be smaller in scope and won’t be a massive open-world role-playing game like other Assassin’s Creed titles, it will focus heavily on stealth gameplay.

Alongside project Rift, Schreier shared that Ubisoft is also working on a future Assassin’s Creed title called Infinity.

Infinity will be a live-service title with an evolving world and will feature more linear missions like older titles of the series, which is something that fans of the franchise have been asking for.

Infinity is not expected to launch before late 2023.

Both these titles have yet to be officially announced by Ubisoft.
