This week we relayed word of a report that the next Assassin’s Creed game was releasing soon. According to this initial report, the game is smaller in scope compared to Assassin’s CreedValhalla, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Assassin’s Creed Origins, the three most recent Assassin’s Creed games that have injected RPG mechanics into the series and bloated it with exploration-based open-world content. And this is because it started off as an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla expansion. The protagonist of the game is reportedly Basim Ibn Ishaq, a character in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and an actual assassin. As you would expect, it will be more stealth-focused like older games in the series. Meanwhile, the setting is reportedly the city of Baghdad. All of this is old news though. A new report doesn’t add much to this, but it does relay word of when the game will release.
The report comes the way of Sacred Symbols host Colin Moriarty, a former IGN journalist best known for his PlayStation coverage and scoops. Over the years, Moriarty has broken many things. Most recently he relayed word of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Demon’s Souls Remake before they were revealed.
According to Moriarty, the game isn’t scheduled to release later this year as previous reports have claimed. Rather it’s reported that the game is releasing in the first two months of 2023, or at least this is what Moriart’s source has told him.
Unfortunately, this is the extent of the report. What is here, should be taken with a grain of salt. While the source in question has proven reliable and reputable in the past, it doesn’t negate the fact that we are dealing with unofficial information that is subject to change.
At the moment of publishing, Ubisoft hasn’t touched this new report or any previous reports about this new and rumored Assassin’s Creed game. We don’t expect this to change for a variety of reasons, but if it does, we will be sure to update the story accordingly.
