Assassin's Creed Hexe teased as darkest franchise entry to date

Assassin's Creed Hexe teased as darkest franchise entry to date

It'll also introduce "strong feminine energy", according to one leak

The Assassin’s Creed franchise is many things but it’s no secret that Ubisoft has always strayed from the darker side. However, an upcoming entry may just mark a new era for the long-running series.

It has been reported that Ubisoft has quite a few Assassin’s Creed titles in the pipeline but Assassin’s Creed Hexe is set to be the most interesting of all.

Check out another upcoming title in the Assassin's Creed series below!

Although we are yet to receive too much information about this next entry, we do know that it will deal with the supernatural and have “strong feminine energy”. Additionally, its female protagonist, Elsa, could be deeply involved in the occult.

Not only that but according to a report by Insider Gaming, Assassin’s Creed Hexe may still be a while from release with other entries such as Assassin’s Creed Red taking precedence. As a result, Hexe could see a 2026 release.

It seems as though Ubisoft are prioritising titles such as Red, Assassin’s Creed Infinity and more. However, with Hexe scheduled to arrive a year after Assassin’s Creed Red, it could be assumed that it will be on a much smaller scale than the open-world RPG setting planned for the latter.

With 2023’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage taking a step back from the massive open-world settings the series has been leaning into over the past 10 years, it would be nice to see this extended to Hexe. As they say, less isn’t always more.

Not only that but the same report from Insider Gaming also teases that Assassin’s Creed Hexe is set to be the darkest in the series so far. No, we don’t mean in terms of lighting.

With the game rumoured to delve into the world of the occult, this would make sense so we hope Ubisoft is not scared to shy away from the creepiness that comes with it. Either way, we will have to wait until at least 2026 to see.
