It was planned for the new Assassin’s Creed game, codenamed Rift, to debut later this year.
The newest open-world RPG from Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed Baghdad, is now aiming for a 2023 release date. The upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, codenamed Rift, was initially intended to be an extension to the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla video game, which is set to debut in 2020. According to a Bloomberg article, the game will now arrive somewhere in Spring 2023, which is between March and May 2023. This is the “second such delay for the French video game publisher in recent days.”
According to Bloomberg, to cover the gap in Ubisoft’s “thin” launch schedule for the fiscal year, the planned addition to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was changed into a standalone game.
Baghdad will now stand alone as a complete project, but with a more constrained scope than the most recent entries’ expansive, open-world settings. The yet-to-be-announced Rift is scheduled to come out in May or June 2023, which raises the possibility that it may arrive in the summer of 2023.
It states, “According to a person familiar with the company’s intentions, Rift is running considerably behind schedule, and Ubisoft’s headquarters in Bordeaux, which oversees game production, requested extra time.”
Disney and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora were working together to create this fall’s anticipated release. However, Ubisoft postponed the launch to a hazy 2023–2024 window last week.
This leaves the AAA game publisher with two releases this year: the pirate game Skull and Bones and a Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope exclusive for the Nintendo Switch. Both had a challenging production process and were delayed.
Online information about Project Red, a different Assassin’s Creed game, first appeared last week. There are few specifics, but according to sources and games reporter Jeff Grubb, the game is set in medieval Japan and uses an RPG style like contemporary Assassin’s Creed titles. Assassin’s Creed InfinityAccording to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, the release of Project Red will come after that of Assassin’s Creed Baghdad in response to a Reddit post. “Assassin’s Creed] Infinity will come next, and although that’s going to have a variety of different games, experiences, biomes, or whatever you want to call them, from what I’ve heard, neither of the primary two is Aztec,” the statement continues.
Although Ubisoft has not yet made a formal announcement, we may anticipate that Assassin’s Creed Baghdad will be released in spring 2023 on the PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and Windows PC. As the publisher organizes an online event titled “The Future of Assassin’s Creed” in September, any more updates on the game and the ensuing live-service platform should be anticipated. referred to as Ubisoft’s live-service platform for subsequent entries will include Project Red.
