Ubisoft will reveal the 'future of the Assassin's Creed brand' in September 2022

The latest moves for the Assassin's Creed franchise will be revealed by Ubisoft sometime later this year.

With the closing of its latest financial quarter, Ubisoft had quite a few things to announce as it heads into the latter end of the year. Between delays, confirmation of upcoming games, and more, Assassin’s Creed was mentioned in the latest earnings results. Ubisoft didn’t have any new games or other media to announce at the moment for the franchise, but it did mention that there will be news later this year. Apparently the “future of the Assassin’s Creed” will be revealed in some kind of presentation in September 2022.

Ubisoft revealed this detail in its Q1 2022/2023 financial earnings reporting on July 21, 2022. In these results, the company revealed a number of stats regarding its sales for the previous quarter. However, there were also a number of unique details in the report as well. It was here we learned the company’s plans for Assassin’s Creed. Apparently, Ubisoft intends to show off something new to the franchise sometime in the month of September. There’s no telling exactly what the reveal will be, but Ubisoft claims it will represent the “future” of the franchise.

This tease is an interesting one to say the least. Though we can likely expect the reveal of a new game, Ubisoft doesn’t explicitly say that the reveal will be for a game either (at least not a traditional core entry). The company has dipped its toes into a number of alternative media, including insisting upon adoption of NFTs. We’re not sure what an NFT-adjacent Assassin’s Creed thing would look like, but given it’s one of Ubisoft’s biggest franchises, it feels like a safe bet that Ubi is trying to figure out how to mix NFTs and Assassin’s Creed together.

Either way, we’ll find out what’s coming in September. Whether “the future of the Assassin’s Creed franchise” means a new game or something else, we’ll share new details and reveals as they become available.

      I played and beat Valhalla in 90 hours and can't tell you a thing that happened in it. It's like a bad relationship I was in while high on PCP

        smack my bishop is the one standout event :D quest wise, when I think hard, I can recall a few things but it's quite murky. I liked raiding the monasteries for materials but... yeah.

      2 Ass 2 Creed: An alternate universe where Appollo Creed retires from boxing following his win over Rocky Balboa and becomes an undercover vice cop in the seedy 1970's underground New York porn scene.

      There's asses.
      There's Creed.

      It's 2 Ass 2 Creed.

      I really wish they would go back to the AC style of Black Flag, Unity, and Syndicate. The last 3 games hasn't been doing it for me.

        AssFlag was the last one that felt even a tiny bit innovative. The recent 3 that have "shaken it up" are extremely boring and bloated games.

          I honestly think that Origins was on the same tier as Black Flag. The story and setting were both really neat.

          Odyssey was a super-bloated copy/paste version of Origins, and Valhalla was just a flawed game for a bunch of reasons - it really felt like it suffered because of COVID. :(

            I liked Origin's character and setting for sure. But it didn't really feel like AssCreed. I was running around on the ground most of the time, for one. It felt like Ubisoft trying to make their game like the Witcher, except they don't have the same calibre of writers and also their game has to be 400+ hours long. I ran out of steam maybe 15 hours into Origins, which I know is like literally nothing in that game.

              That's a good point - you are on the ground a lot in that game compared to a lot of the earlier ones. They did a neat job with the horse -- at least it seemed that way at the time. :)

            I'd rank Odyssey over Origins but they both feel lacking. All the content is wide but no depth, Valhalla I bounced off of.
