Ubisoft reportedly has 11 Assassin’s Creed games in development

11 assassin's creed

There are now 11 Assassin’s Creed games in development at Ubisoft, a report suggests – one of them being a remake of the pirate-y Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.


Assassin’s Creed Mirage is out this October, and promises to return to the more contained stealth-and-stabbing action of earlier titles in the series when compared to, say, the sprawling Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. As our Lewis wrote last month, “time-poor gamers, rejoice.”

Mirage is far from the only Assassin’s Creed project in the works at Ubisoft, though – far from it, if a report by Insider Gaming is accurate. According to their tally, there are no fewer than 11 Assassin’s Creed games currently in development across Ubisoft’s various studios worldwide. That number includes the aforementioned Mirage and Jade, the codename for a mobile series entry that Ubisoft has chatted about for a while now.

The list contains a mix of single-player and multiplayer experiences with a range of important sounding names (Nebula, Invictus, Hexe, Raid). The more surprising name on the list, though, is a a remake of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, the 2013 entry that combined stealth, stabbing and pirates on the high seas to crowd-pleasing effect.

The existence of a Black Flag remake was echoed by a report by Kotaku, whose sources suggest that the project is in development at Ubisoft Singapore – ironically, one of the teams currently working on the long-in-gestation open-world pirate sim, Skull & Bones. The Black Flag remake won’t be completed “for at least a few years,” according to Kotaku’s report – though that still means it probably has a fighting chance of emerging before Skull & Bones does.

As for other Assassin’s Creed projects, Insider Gaming suggests that one of them, codenamed Nebula, is in development at Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation studio Ubisoft Sofia, and could take in multiple settings spanning India, the Mediterranean, and the Aztec Empire. Then there’s Nexus 2, a VR project, and Raid, a four-player PvE experience pitched by Ubisoft Chengdu.

That is, we’re sure you’ll agree, an awful lot of Assassin’s Creed. We heard in May that, following financial woes at Ubisoft that saw it declare a $538 million loss, the gaming giant had decided to increase the number of people working on Assassin’s Creed games by 40 percent. In short, Ubisoft is betting big on Assassin’s Creed – and that long list of sequels and spin-offs is the first public sign of that bet. You can read the full list here.
