Ubisoft CEO Confirms Multiple Assassin’s Creed Games Will Get Remakes

Ubisoft is preparing multiple remakes of the Assassin’s Creed game, according to the company’s CEO Yves Guillemot. And while he has yet to reveal which ones, the news follows reports from last year that Ubisoft’s much-loved Assassin’s Creed Black Flag would be getting the remake treatment.

Guillemot made the comments in an interview on Ubisoft’s website, discussing the company’s upcoming portfolio. And while it offered few surprises – Yves once again talked about generative AI NPCs, insisting they could be “smarter, more interactive” (and not just scary) – it still managed to share a little new stuff. information.

Which brings us to these remakes. In response to a question about Ubisoft’s future plans for the series, Yves revealed: “First of all, players can be excited about some remakes, which will allow us to revisit some of the games we have made in the past and modernize them; some of our older Assassin’s Creed games contain extremely rich worlds. »

This lends credence to a Kotaku report from last year claiming that Skull and Bones studio Ubisoft Singapore was “heavily involved” in a remake of the fan-favorite pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. However, the project is said to be “still in its early stages” and is unlikely to be completed “for at least a few years.” Of course, Guillemot has now confirmed remakesopening up a world of possibilities – although my money is probably on Assassin’s Creed 2. The best joke in the series deserves another chance to shine.

But Guillemot also had a bit more to say about Assassin’s Creed. When asked if the difference in approach between the lighter Mirage and the more traditionally heavier upcoming Shadows was indicative of Ubisoft’s future plans, Guillemot replied: “There will be a wide variety of experiences. The goal is to release Assassin’s Creed games more regularly, but not so that it’s the same experience every year.”

“There’s a lot of good stuff coming,” he added, “including Assassin’s Creed Hexe, which we announced, which will be a very different game from Assassin’s Creed Shadows. We’re going to surprise people, I think.”

Hexe is of course one of several new installments in the series confirmed to be in development in September 2022. It is set in 16th century Europe and appears to be aiming for a 2026 launch, while Assassin’s Creed Jade, focused on mobile, is expected first in 2025. As for Assassin’s Creed Shadows, which takes place in feudal Japan, it will be released on PC, Mac, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on November 15.
