- Assassin’s Creed Red could have a world premiere trailer in May 2024, according to a new leak.
- A gameplay showcase for Assassin’s Creed Red could happen at Ubisoft Forward in July 2024.
- The highly anticipated game is rumored to be released in November 2024.
Some major pieces of information about Assassin’s Creed Red, including its possible release window, have been leaked, according to a source on Twitter. Since its initial reveal back in 2022, which consisted of little more than a short teaser trailer, speculation about Assassin’s Creed Red‘s gameplay and narrative has run rampant, with fans generally being excited about the prospect of the series’ first mainline game set in Asia.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise has taken players to a number of iconic and impressively realized settings, but fans have been asking the series to visit Feudal Japan for years now. Assassin’s Creed Red will be the long-awaited realization of this desire, allowing players to explore the Japanese setting while enjoying Assassin’s Creed‘s iconic traversal and stealth mechanics. While the game’s premise seems incredibly promising, fans have mostly subsisted on tantalizing rumors and alleged leaks, which have served to further fuel the hype engine for the game.
Assassin’s Creed Red Might Be Breaking a Huge Protagonist Tradition
Much like every game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Red has suffered a few big leaks, and one suggests that a big protagonist tradition is ending.
Adding to the collection of Assassin’s Creed Red leaks and rumors is Ubisoft partner and games journalist BunnyTheVillain on Twitter. The tweet in question outlines some important information about the game, stating that a new trailer will drop this May, with a gameplay showcase in July. Furthermore, the tweet alleges that the game will be released in November of this year. BunnyTheVillain doesn’t specify where they got this information, only claiming that it comes from a “trusted source.”
Assassin’s Creed Red’s Rumored 2024 Plans
- Assassin’s Creed Red will receive a world premiere trailer in May 2024
- There will be an Assassin’s Creed Red gameplay showcase at Ubisoft Forward in July 2024
- Assassin’s Creed Red will be released in November 2024
Assuming these claims are valid, 2024 will be a big year for Assassin’s Creed fans. There has been no shortage of rumored information about this upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, with leakers claiming to have insider information about everything from Assassin’s Creed Red‘s protagonists to its core combat mechanics, and a trailer or gameplay showcase could confirm or deny such claims. As for BunnyTheVillain’s statement about Assassin’s Creed Red releasing as soon as this fall, that is certainly possible; Assassin’s Creed has historically been an annual-release franchise, and with Assassin’s Creed Mirage being a relatively pared-down release, it’s not unlikely for another, bigger game to follow it this year.
It’s important to emphasize that these leaks, at the time of writing, have not been confirmed by Ubisoft. That said, Assassin’s Creed Red is due for a new trailer or gameplay reveal, and Ubisoft will no doubt want to capitalize on the excitement surrounding a Japan-based Assassin’s Creed game by delivering some new promotional materials. Either way, expectations are high for Assassin’s Creed Red, so it will certainly be interesting to see what the title has in store.
Assassin’s Creed is an action-adventure stealth series published and developed by Ubisoft and its various first party studios. Originally releasing in 2007, the series has seen 12 mainline releases with the recent games moving to a more open-world RPG style. Each game typically showcases major historical moments like the Italian Renaissance, Crusades, or French Revolution, focusing mostly on a long standing conflict between the free-minded Assassins against the order loving Knights Templar.
