Assassin's Creed Codename RED stealth-adventure set in feudal Japan

While the big reveal of Assassin's Creed Mirage dominated the Assassin's Creed segment of the recent Ubisoft Forward show, Ubisoft also released some exciting teasers for a couple of games and projects that are still a ways away. First and foremost, Ubisoft Quebec (makers of Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Assassin's Creed Syndicate) are currently hard at work on the next big open-world Assassin's Creed game. Best of all, this new Assassin's Creed Codename RED will be taking place in a heavily requested setting - feudal Japan!

While the details are basically nonexistent, you can get a tiny, tiny sneak peek at what Assassin's Creed Codename RED has to offer through the teaser below. Have a gander:

Ubisoft has also taken the opportunity to announce Assassin's Creed Codename HEXE which is being developed by the main studio Ubisoft Montreal. Again, there are no details to be found anywhere, but Assassin's Creed Codename HEXE looks like it'll be going for a bit of a darker tone than the rest of the series. Here's what I mean:

Even though it's not a game itself, Ubisoft has also revealed that they're working on Assassin's Creed Codename INFINITY - a hub that will connect players across a variety of Assassin's Creed games. From what I've figured out, INFINITY will mostly be used as a way to chat with other players and jump into a variety of multiplayer modes that may or may not be cross-game compatible. This is mostly speculation on my part, so until we get some proper confirmation I'd recommend taking all of that with a few grains of salt.

The final thing worth mentioning is Assassin's Creed Codename JADE - a mobile focused action-RPG set in ancient China. It'll follow a free-to-play model, give you a chance to create your very own character, as well as explore a standalone story. What this looks like in-game, that you can get a glimpse at through the teaser below:

Once we get some more information about the two mainline games, and especially HEXE as I'm quite intrigued about the setting myself, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, I'm afraid all we can really do is sit and wait.
