Assassin's Creed Nebula's multiple locations suggest the biggest AC we've ever seen

Assassin's Creed Nebula's multiple locations suggest the biggest AC we've ever seen

Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed Nebula is set to take us across the globe in an enormous sprawling adventure.

The future looks bright for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise, with the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Nebula possibly being one of largest entries we’ve seen to date.

Last year’s Assassin’s Creed Mirage took the franchise back to its stealth-based roots while this year’s Codename Red will mark a return to the RPG formula. The latter style of entry hasn’t always been the most popular format with fans but Codename Red does boast a promising premise. The game will take us to Feudal Japan and is believed to star dual protagonists, a male samurai and a female shinobi with the samurai possibly based on the real life figure of Yasuke. Presumably Ubisoft will hold their annual Ubisoft Forward later this summer, likely offering us our first full glimpse at the project, but it’s far from the only Assassin’s Creed entry in the pipeline.

Take a look at the teaser trailer for Codename Red below.

A new report by Insider Gaming has lifted the lid on several of those projects. The report makes reference to Assassin’s Creed Nebula which could be one of the biggest entries in the franchise we’ve seen thus far. At this point in time, we have no idea whether it’ll opt for the RPG or stealth formula, but Insider Gaming has claimed that the game will take us to India, the Aztec Empire, and the Mediterranean. It certainly doesn’t sound in the same vein as the enormous Valhalla then but Nebula does appear to tease a globetrotting scale akin to that of the Uncharted entries.

Elsewhere, the report mentions the Black Flag remake, codenamed Obsidian, the free-to-play co-op entry Raid, multiplayer title Echoes, and another unknown remake. That’s alongside the presumed releases of Codename Red this year, multiplayer Invictus in 2025, and Codename Hexe in 2026 which are understandably further along in the development process compared to some of the other projects mentioned here.

The report largely focuses on Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a new hub that’s in the works from which players will launch future entries. It’s believed this hub will also feature an item shop and purchasable battle passes adding opportunities into games to win extra cosmetic rewards. It certainly sounds as if Ubisoft has a lot to tell us about.
