Assassin's Creed Hexe promises 'strong feminine energy'

With Ubisoft revealing a mile long roadmap for the Assassin’s Creed franchise in upcoming years, one instalment has promised fans “strong feminine energy”.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage is just around the corner and following that is a long list of instalments Ubisoft are reportedly working on. This includes Assassin’s Creed Codename Red, Codename Jade, Nexus VR, Infinity, Invictus and finally Assassin’s Creed Hexe. With the projects taking us everywhere from feudal Japan to 215 BCE China, Hexe will be taking us to 16th/17th century Germany if rumours are to be believed.

Assassin’s Creed Hexe (Hexe translating to ‘witch’ in German) is described as the studio’s “new flagship title” according to Ubisoft’s Marc-Alexis Cote as well as “a very different type of Assassin’s Creed game”. This is apparent from the 30 second reveal trailer that launched in September 2022. It shows a dark forest littered with dead leaves before the camera pans to the Assassin’s Creed logo hanging from a tree, made from sticks and twigs and symbolising a witch’s talisman.

We have yet to receive any other trailers for Hexe yet but fans are already guessing it will have a dark, witchcraft theme. This rumour was fueled further after a Linkedin account was discovered that belongs to Ubisoft Montreal’s Talent Acquisition Specialist Yara Tabbara. In it she reveals that Hexe will “leave a lasting mark on the franchise” and will have “strong feminine energy”. Although this is all she says, fans are hoping this hints at a female witch as our assassin protagonist.

This will be an exciting addition to the franchise as it not only introduces a darker theme but could also incorporate magic into the story. Ubisoft has yet to confirm if this is true but with no idea on who our assassin could be, it doesn’t hurt to hope.

Until then, Assassin’s Creed Mirage arrives on 5 October for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
