Assassin’s Creed Game Codenamed Project Red Is Reportedly Set In Asia, Part Of Infinity

Assassin's Creed Infinity, the long-rumored title that will allegedly be the platform for multiple Assassin's Creed experiences, may have its first game. Ubisoft is reportedly working on something codenamed Project Red, which is believed to be an Assassin's Creed game set in Asia.

A report from Kotaku revealed the existence of Project Red, but Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier later clarified that Project Red would apparently be a part of Assassin's Creed Infinity rather than its own game. Kotaku explains that two of its sources have claimed the game will be set in Asia, which lines up with industry insider Jeff Grubb's recent comments about an Assassin's Creed game being worked on that will take place in Japan.

Ubisoft confirmed Assassin's Creed Infinity and what it will be back in 2021 but has remained pretty tight-lipped since then. We know that the game is being touted as a live-service title that will become the platform for the entire series in the coming years, but Ubisoft has refrained from giving us even a glimpse as to what that might actually look like. Now we have a potential setting for the game's first experience, and we'll likely learn more about the game itself soon.

That's mainly because Ubisoft itself has promised to show fans the future of the Assassin's Creed series this September. A new Ubisoft Forward showcase is set to take place on September 10, and while it said the event will include multiple updates, it's expected that we'll see either Assassin's Creed Infinity or the rumored Assassin's Creed Rift there too.

Unfortunately, even if these Assassin's Creed titles are there, we won't be getting our hands on them until at least April 2023. Ubisoft recently revealed that two high-profile titles have been delayed out of the fiscal year, one of which is Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. The other was an "unannounced premium" title, which is now reported to be Assassin's Creed Rift. According to Schreier, Rift was originally meant to launch next February to boost Ubisoft's weak fiscal year release schedule, but has apparently been delayed to Spring 2023.
