(Netflix is currently working with Ubisoft on a live-action series based on Assassin’s Creed.

Ubisoft provided some details about the games that will follow Mirage. Ubisoft’s Quebec City studio is currently developing “Red” and will set it in feudal Japan. Meanwhile, the Montreal team is working on “Hexe”. While there aren’t many details yet on this one, it seems to be about witches. Mirage has largely abandoned the RPG mechanics used in games like Odyssey. However, Red and Hexe appear to be keeping them.

The publisher also provided some additional details about its Assassin’s Creed Infinity project. This appears to be an online hub that will link the mainline games with standalone multiplayer projects. It’s like the Animus in the games. You use it to launch games.

Assassin’s Creed upcoming games playtime maybe be not 150Hr long

Today’s Assassin’s Creed Showcase announced that Assassin’s Creed Mirage, an action/adventure video game similar to the original game in the series, will retail for $50 for the standard edition. Marc-Alexis Cote (Vice President Executive Producer of Assassin’s Creed) explained to IGN that the price is reflective of the size of the project.

Cote said, “It’s a smaller Assassin’s Creed Project.” This was built and conceived to commemorate the 15th anniversary. We’re using the modern Valhalla engine to create a smaller game that honors our original game. It focuses more on stealth and close-quarter combat. A denser city is also a tribute to our Middle East roots with Baghdad at the center.

Future games will have different lengths and prices. This means that we may see more $50 games or cheaper games in the future.

Cote was asked if Mirage would be the same length as the older games, which averaged 15-20 hours each for the main story. And they said that maybe there’s a chance that future assassin’s game will be of the same playtime.

Cote confirmed Codename Hexe will not be an RPG. Although he did not specify the genre or length of Hexe, it appears that Ubisoft is looking to create a range of games within the Assassin’s Creed universe. Cote claims this will bring more variety to the places and how we represent them.
