Assassin's Creed Hexe unlike anything we've seen from AC before

While it’s yet to be confirmed by Ubisoft, it’s looking increasingly likely that Assassin’s Creed Codename Red is set to land later this year.

The highly anticipated upcoming title will take players to Feudal Japan and will feature two dual protagonists.

One is believed to be a male samurai, possibly based on the real life figure of Yasuke, whilst the other is thought to be a female shinobi.

Beyond that, Assassin’s Creed Hexe is set to introduce another female protagonist in what is shaping up to be one of Ubisoft’s most exciting Assassin’s Creed projects yet.

Little has been officially confirmed about Hexe beyond its codenamed title but as with every Assassin’s Creed entry, small hints and teases have still managed to come to light.

We know that it’s Ubisoft Montréal helming this one, with the game to centre around witchcraft.

It’s unknown exactly when Hexe is set but Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderon has previously pointed to 16th century Central Europe as a likely possibility - a period that saw thousands of people executed amidst witch trial hysteria.

In a report, Henderson added that Hexe is being penned as “the darkest Assassin’s Creed game ever”, with the protagonist currently referred to internally as Elsa. Consider my interest piqued.

Take a look at the upcoming Codename Red below.

Twitter user RinoTheBouncer was able to piece together some additional tidbits from various Ubisoft employees with developer Yara Tabbara reportedly teasing that Hexe will “leave a lasting mark on the franchise,” and is a game with “strong feminine energy”.

If this is true, it does sound as if Hexe may mark the first time Assassin’s Creed embraces a solo female protagonist, which would be a huge and important step forward.

The game is believed to have been written by Darby McDevitt who also served as narrative director on Valhalla, in addition to as a writer on Unity, Black Flag, and Revelations.

Hexe isn’t due to land until 2026 at the earliest but it’s a title that I’m imagining we’ll all be eager to see more of.
