Ubisoft teases an open-world Assassin's Creed RPG set in feudal Japan with Codename RED

During today's Ubisoft Forward live stream, Ubisoft revealed Assassin's Creed Codename RED, the "future of Ubisoft's open-world RPG games on Assassin's Creed". It is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec (Assassin's Creed Odyssey) under creative director Jonathan Dumont.

While 2023's mainline entry in the franchise - the newly announced Assassin's Creed Mirage - is more of an action-adventure title like the earlier games in the series, Codename RED will seemingly follow more like the recent RPG entries in Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla.

Codename RED will also be part of the upcoming Assassin's Creed Infinity Hub, which is described as 'a single entry point for our fans into the Assassin's Creed franchise into the future. It will be a hub that will unite different experiences and players in meaningful ways.'

A short teaser trailer can be found below. Assassin's Creed Codename RED does not yet have a release window.
