Assassin’s Creed Red Gameplay Reveal Coming at Ubisoft Forward

It was almost a guarantee, but Insider Gaming can confirm that Assassin’s Creed Red will have its official gameplay reveal at this year’s Ubisoft Forward.

Speaking with sources, it’s understood that content creators and the press will get hands-on during the week of Summer Games Fest, with the preview embargo lifting on June 12. It’s currently unclear if the game will be revealed prior to Ubisoft Forward in typical Ubisoft fashion, though, where the game gets a cinematic trailer, an official name, and a vague release window.

Ubisoft forward is set to take place on June 10, 2024.

Insider Gaming exclusively reported in March 2023 that this year’s game will feature two different Assassins: a female and a male. Red will feature real-life Samurai Yasuke and a female Assassin named Naoe.

Alongside Red, the franchise will see the release of Assassin’s Creed Infinity – which is the new central hub for all things Assassin’s Creed and is understood to be where the ‘modern day’ story takes place. As such, the series will be moving to one unified engine named the ‘Anvil Pipeline’, which will allow development between games to run more smoothly and allow the series to benefit visually from the lines of ray-traced global illumination and virtual geometry.

The move to the Anvil Pipeline has meant that the teams have had to completely overhaul everything in the series, too, including animations, its parkour system, dynamic weather, and more.

The next mainline entry, Assassin’s Creed Hexe, is currently scheduled to release in 2026 and will feature a solo female protagonist named Elsa for the first time since Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China in 2015.

Other projects include Obsidian (Black Flag Remake), Nebula (settings based in India, Aztec Empire, and Mediterranean), Raid (a free-to-play 4-player co-op that’s PvE), Echoes (another multiplayer title), and another Assassin’s Creed Remake which are all scheduled to release by the end of the decade.

Which Assassin’s Creed game are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. I’m curious about how this Infinity thing works.
    Like what will happen to disc releases, offline play and all that?
    What if I just wanna buy Red or Hexe and play it in a typical fashion as an offline single player game instead of going through the live service launcher?

  2. I’m looking forward to Red, and cautiously to Infinity. I hope Ubisoft management doesn’t screw up AC like they’ve screwed up every other game/franchise they’ve tried to make Live Service. If the modern day aspects of each game are going to take place in Infinity, I guess that leaves open the possibility for the modern day story to take place over multiple games. That could be fun.

    I’m not sure how I feel about Hexe. I usually prefer the more historically based AC games and gameplay rather than sci-fi. Like most people, I can’t wait for Black Flag!!! Ubisoft management screwed up Skull & Bones, so this is the only good pirate themed game we’re probably going to get.

  3. I’m not a big fan of the universal launcher. The CoD launcher is pretty terrible and cumbersome to navigate. Although I do hope these next AC games are good. Mirage was a nice breath of fresh air from the way too open world of the previous AC games so I’m hoping they’ll end up leaning more towards that direction again

  4. Well, well, if Ubi is prepared to show a gameplay rather than a usual teaser and misleading trailer that means they got really hit by the AAAA hate and people don’t trust to pre order the Outlaws.
    My guess? Ubi will ask again for pre orders in a usual fashion during the event in June.

  5. Can’t wait for Red. Have been wanting a good samurai style game on Xbox for years. Hope it’s as good as Ghost of Tsushima on PS5, which almost made me buy a PlayStation just for that
