There are few game series out there with as many exciting projects in the works as Assassin’s Creed. It’s genuinely pretty difficult to keep up with them all.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the obvious one, since that’s the next game to release. It’s supposedly meant to be coming out at some point this year, although we still haven’t had official word on exactly when (some believe it could be as soon as August).
Take a look at the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Mirage below.
Meanwhile in the more distant future, fans can also look forward to the release of Codename Red, a new adventure set in feudal Japan, and Codename Hexe, which many speculate could take place during the witch trials. If this is true, numerous fans have suggested that it’d be the perfect time to have a female protagonist.
Despite all that good stuff being cooked up by Ubisoft behind the scenes, apparently, that’s not enough to satiate the hunger of fans. Over on Reddit, one user has been working on their own concept for an Aztec-era Assassin’s Creed game, and it genuinely sounds great.
On the r/assassinscreed subreddit, user luisparive19 introduced fellow fans to their idea for Assassin’s Creed: Sun’s Shadow. They wrote: “Located in the Aztec empire during the 15th century, specifically in the city of Tenochtitlan (present-day Mexico City) where Tlaloc, the current successor of the king, would be betrayed by the king's advisors (templars) and would be recruited by the Order of Assassins to claim his throne and keep the peace.” The user also shared some concept art of their protagonist, Tlaloc.
Unfortunately, the user hasn’t given any indication that this is going to become a playable project, so as cool as Sun’s Shadow sounds, it seems like it’ll probably just stay as an idea forever. Hopefully it might give some devs at Ubisoft some inspiration, though.
