Assassin’s Creed Red Hinted by Leaked Image

Assassin’s Creed Red Reveals a Glimpse of Its Feudal Japan Setting

The world of Assassin’s Creed is expanding with Ubisoft’s highly anticipated Japanese-themed installment, codenamed “Assassin’s Creed Red.” Recently, an intriguing leak emerged from an unexpected source, providing fans with an exciting glimpse of what this new adventure might entail.

The leak originated from Ubisoft’s own senior writer, Pierre Boudreau, who is actively involved in the game’s development. Boudreau briefly updated his LinkedIn cover photo, revealing a striking image that is presumed to be the protagonist of the upcoming game. This image features a female assassin brandishing a katana against a vibrant red backdrop adorned with the Japanese Assassin’s Creed logo and an imposing pagoda. While the leaked image is only a fragment of a larger picture, it has ignited significant excitement and speculation among the series’ community.

“Assassin’s Creed Red” takes place in the captivating setting of feudal Japan, and it was officially unveiled in September 2022. Positioned as the “next premium flagship title and the future of our open-world RPG games,” the game is expected to follow the style of its predecessors, Valhalla and Odyssey. Although only a brief concept trailer has been shared, it showcases an assassin nimbly leaping onto a rooftop during a picturesque sunset.

While official details remain scarce, another Ubisoft employee’s LinkedIn post from July 2023 hinted at a 2024 release date for the game. Given that previous titles in the series have faced their fair share of leaks, this revelation aligns with the franchise’s history.

One notable example is Unity, which was initially exposed when an Ubisoft employee shared extensive details about the game with a fellow passenger on an airplane. Screenshots subsequently emerged, confirming the leak’s legitimacy.

“Assassin’s Creed Red” joins the lineage of these accidental unveilings. If the 2024 release date holds true, Ubisoft may well position the game as a holiday season offering, similar to the release strategy employed for “Assassin’s Creed Mirage” in October 2023. Considering the timing of its official announcement, it may still be some time before fans receive substantial information about the next installment in this beloved franchise.
