• Ubisoft is reportedly working on a new "Assassin's Creed" title
  • The game is believed to be called "Assassin's Creed: Rift"
  • Ubisoft hasn't confirmed anything about the game's release yet

French video games giant Ubisoft regularly releases a new "Assassin's Creed" game with the last game titled "Valhalla" rolled out in 2020. While the gaming studio has not yet revealed anything related to the game, insiders may have a new set of information revealing the next "Assassin's Creed" game's location and possible release window.

Ubisoft is believed to be working on a new "Assassin's Creed" game, which was earlier planned to be an expansion of "Valhalla." Several claims mentioned that the game might be released as "Assassin's Creed: Rift."

While Ubisoft has not yet commented on reports about its next series installment, a new piece of information from Sacred Symbols podcast host Colin Moriarty, a former IGN journalist, revealed the game's potential release window. The host debunked claims that the next series installment will release in the latter part of 2022.

Instead, Moriarty said that the game will not release until the third month of 2023, or at least that is what his source disclosed to him. A report from Eurogamer claimed that earlier plans on "Assassin's Creed: Rift" included showcasing in the game the city of Baghdad.

Bloomberg also reported that the upcoming series installment will feature the fan-favorite character Basim from "Valhalla." The game's plot is anticipated to center around the character, Basim, before the events in "Valhalla."

Bloomberg also claimed that "Assassin's Creed: Rift" will not be a massive open-world title but smaller in terms of scope, similar to the previous series entries. It will reportedly focus on stealth gameplay.

The report also revealed that the game will be released before "Assassin's Creed: Infinity," which is Ubisoft's ambitious online service game that will feature several historical settings. When asked about reports related to "Rift," a Ubisoft spokesperson told Bloomberg, "on rumors or speculation as they do a disservice to our development teams and community."

Ubisoft added that "solid and exciting line-up of titles in our pipeline, both established brands with new story twists and features, and brand new IPs that will continue to change the landscape of today’s video games."

In the absence of an official confirmation from Ubisoft, fans should take these latest details on "Assassin's Creed: Rift" as highly speculative.
