Assassin’s Creed is considered an important franchise in the gaming world, as many titles have become best-sellers. In recent years, however, Ubisoft has been struggling to avoid the “more of the same”, that is, to try to make different titles. Now, the company wants to improve the classics.

It turns out that Ubisoft has announced that it is already working on new modern versions of classic titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, precisely with the aim of improving the experience of these games, both in terms of graphics and bringing improvements to new-generation consoles and PCs.

Franchise will continue to receive new titles

The person who revealed these plans was Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, during an interview on the company’s website. According to him, these remakes of the old Assassin’s Creed games are in development.

When asked about the future of the franchise, Guillemot explained that the remakes will allow the company to revisit and modernize the old worlds it created, highlighting that “There are worlds in some of your older Assassin’s Creed games that are still extremely rich.”

Additionally, Guillemot also revealed Ubisoft’s desire to release games in the Assassin’s Creed series more regularly, but without repeating the same experience every year. He mentioned that the next game in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed Hexe, will be set during the witch trials in the Holy Roman Empire and “will be a very different game from Assassin’s Creed Shadows.”

Shadows, in turn, will be set in Japan at the end of the Sengoku era, with real events and historical figures from that period, such as feudal lord Oda Nobunaga. The worldwide release of Shadows is scheduled for November 15th.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag could be the first to get a remake

Although Guillemot did not specify which titles in the franchise are being remade, the website Kotaku had previously reported that Ubisoft is working on a new version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The game was released in 2013 and as the name suggests, it focuses on 18th century pirates. The news could be good for many, as it is still one of the most beloved titles in the franchise.

Ubisoft is also set to launch a new platform called the “Animus Hub” on the same day as Assassin’s Creed Shadows’ launch. Players will be able to use the Animus Hub to launch and play games in the franchise. Previously known as Infinity, the Animus Hub could become an online store, which would justify Ubisoft working on more Assassin’s Creed releases that could be sold through this platform.
