Assassin’s Creed heads to Japan, new reports allege

With a second rumoured game revolving around "witch trials"

New reports suggest that two new Assassin’s Creed games will announced alongside Assassin’s Creed Mirage over the weekend, including one set in feudal Japan.

The reports come from Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier and Try Hard Guides’ Tom Henderson, and largely echo one another.

As part of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, the feudal Japan game is reportedly codenamed Red, and will be joined by another game codenamed Neo or Hexe that takes place “during the latter stages of the Holy Roman Empire and revolves around witch trials”.

Finally, Henderson also alleges that we’ll be introduced to a new Assassin’s Creed mobile title codenamed Jade, which will be set in China.

Ubisoft has already confirmed the existence of Miragewhich is believed to be set in Baghdad and will star Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s Basim. We’ll find out more of the title — and potentially others — as part of Ubisoft Forward, which kicks off at 5.00 am AEST on 11 September.
