Dataminers have been hard at work, delving into the depths of Assassin’s Creed Mirage’s files, and they’ve stumbled upon intriguing hints about the game’s future. While you won’t be donning a Spider-Man suit, it appears that the modern-day sections of upcoming Assassin’s Creed titles are headed for a leap into the year 2099.
In this new direction, players may find themselves exploring a far-flung future, introducing a fresh cast of characters and adventures. The datamining efforts unearthed audio clips featuring two unnamed Animus operators engaged in a discussion about the 21st century, describing it as “ancient history.” This discovery could potentially signify a significant temporal shift in the game’s modern storyline.
Historically, the modern narrative segments in Assassin’s Creed games have unfolded in the year of the game’s release. However, this latest revelation suggests a deviation from this pattern. As reported by Insider Gaming, anonymous sources disclosed that “Assassin’s Creed Red will have significant portions of its modern-day story set in the last decade of the 21st century (2090-2099).”
The authenticity of the audio clips remains a point of contention, as the context in which they were discussed by the insider remains undisclosed. The phrase “ancient history” is often used casually to denote a time long past since an individual’s experience, but in the context of a historical adventure series like Assassin’s Creed, a more literal interpretation cannot be ruled out.
Fans eagerly await more information about Assassin’s Creed Red, but it seems there’s still some time before its release, not to mention its successor, Hexe, which remains shrouded in mystery. Ubisoft has ambitious plans for the franchise, including the “Infinite” project, which is poised to serve as a central hub for their games, consolidating the overarching narrative and granting players access to each game upon release.
The future of the Assassin’s Creed series holds exciting possibilities, and the prospect of a leap to the year 2099 promises an intriguing shift in the modern narrative, opening new doors for players to explore.
