During Ubisoft Forward, the company reveals two mobile games coming to Assassin’s Creed exclusivity. New titles like Assassin’s Creed MirageThe code name Red, and code name Gorgon undoubtedly got the most attention during the exhibition, but Ubisoft’s codename Jade and Netflix mobile games should not be counted either.
Assassin’s Creed is no stranger to mobile games, but at least for Jade, it seems that Ubisoft is taking its formula from the main games and using them in something that will work on mobile devices.
Assassin’s Creed Jade, for example, it might be a mobile game, but it’s also an open-world title in the vein of Origins, Odyssey, Valhallaand the next project Red. Not sure to what extent, of course, but one can imagine it playing somewhat like Genshin Impact on mobile devices. AC Jade is set in China, 215 BC, and will allow players to customize their Assassin. Instead of playing a default character like Basim or choosing between gendered characters like Alexios and Kassandra, players will be able to make this character their own and even parkour the Great Wall of China. The relevant part takes place around 20:45 below.
The second title is even more mysterious than Jade. Ubisoft Showcase gave a brief update on Assassin’s Creed Netflix series, revealing Jeb Stuart’s involvement here and confirming that a “mobile” game for the Netflix platform was in the works. Many know that Netflix has been pushing more and more into gaming, and Netflix’s mobile games are actually quite enjoyable. However, where this game is set or even its codename is not revealed during the showcase, so fans will just have to wait to find out more.
It will also be quite a wait. If anything is clear from Ubisoft Forward, it’s that the company is betting big on the future of the franchise. It was discussed Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’The last chapter DLC for 2022 and go deep into 2023 Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Everything else revealed will be released sometime after these titles, including the Japanese open-world RPG Red and the mysterious Gorgon the title, as well Jade and the Netflix mobile game.
One showcase is not enough to influence public opinion, but many Assassin’s Creed content has been criticized a lot lately. At the very least, this showcase shows how much future the franchise has with traditional titles, big open world titles, and even in the mobile gaming space.
Codename of Assassin’s Creed Jade is in development for mobile platforms.
