A lot is going on in the Assassin’s Creed community right now. AC Mirage dropped and since then it’s been rumours, teasers, news and more about upcoming games; while Red and Hexe are two of the most talked about, other projects like AC Echoes is gaining much interest from fans as the game takes the franchise in a very different direction.
You may be wondering where the series could go, seeing as it’s already covered so many locations, characters, etc already. Turns out, there’s actually a lot left in the franchise. Not only is Ubisoft going to venture into the lore of an Aztec Empire in one title, but there’s also considerable proof that AC Red will have futuristic locations.
Where else with Assassin's Creed Red that you?
Assassin’s Creed Codename Echoes is said to be in its concept stages, according to a Reddit summary of current Ubisoft projects adapted from an Insider Gaming article. Currently, Echoes is being developed by Ubisoft Annecy, a France-based studio that’s known for the multiplayer aspects of previous AC games, as well as titles like Splinter Cell. Considering its expertise and previous work, Echoes will be a multiplayer instalment that utilises the benefits of Ubisoft Scalar technology.
Interest has been peaked in fans, though there are many sceptics among the crowd, with some going so far as to throw some series shade at Ubisft. One user said, “Ubisoft is so out of touch with its fans and former fans it's pitiful. They are in a slumber away from reality.” They then went on to say how all media is “just remastered and remade and rebooted material”, which, although fair, doesn’t feel like just a Ubisoft problem.
Besides those odd gripes appearing in the discussion, most fans are keen to see what else will be revealed as the AC universe expands even further. Right now, the launch for Echoes is “TBA”, meaning we’re in for a ridiculously long wait. Will it be worth it? Will the game even get made? Who knows. After all, Ubisoft is still tinkering with Skull and Bones, a game pretty much a lost cause after so many delays.
