Ubisoft announced it will increase the number of developers working on the Assassin's Creed franchise by 40 percent "to fuel its ambitious expansion."

"As part of our progressive reallocation of resources, we notably plan to increase the number of talents working on the Assassin’s Creed brand by 40 percent over the coming year," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

Ubisoft announced Assassin's Creed Mirage, Assassin's Creed Codename Red, and Assassin's Creed Codename Hexe in September 2022.

Assassin's Creed Mirage is a smaller scale title in the franchise and is in development for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store, and Amazon Luna with a 2023 release window.

Assassin's Creed Codename Red is the next evolution of the more recent open-world RPG Assassin's Creed games and is set in feudal Japan. Not much is known about Assassin's Creed Codename Hexe at this time.

The publisher also plans to release Assassin's Creed Mirage, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Mobile, The Division Resurgence, Skull and Bones, The Crew: Motorfest, Xdefiant, and "another large game" by end of March 2024.

It makes sense. Ubisoft has struggled alot in recent years, only a handful of their franchises have remained profitable and Yves already suggested they would be doubling down on their most successful franchises instead of spreading themselves thin working on franchises that don't have as much commercial appeal. That'll mean we see lots of Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, andTom Clancy, while many other franchises will take a backseat and get new releases less and less often. We will also get Avatar Frontiers of Pandora and the Star Wars game from Ubisoft Massive, and the 3rd The Crew game from Ubisoft Ivory Tower soon, as well as the return of the Prince of Persia Sands of Time remake, looking more like a remake and less like a remaster like it did before.

Meanwhile it is already rumored that Watch Dogs is officially over as a franchise at Ubisoft, Skull & Bones seems likely to flop and therefore won't become a franchise, and Beyond Good and Evil 2 still seems stuck in dev hell. There was some positive reception to Ubisoft's CoD like shooter xDefiant in it's closed beta test, so maybe it will be a success for them.

So Ubi is nothing but a Creed factory, confirmed? Need more meat for the grinder.

I don't mind as long as they don't make creed like original Ac games especially the combat

So when you're fresh out of ideas, just go back to Creed Unity style of dev, and shove as many devs onto the creed wagon as you can...

I know they've got Skull & Bones, but it feels like they are really betting a lot on the new Creed, vs everything else they have (where's my god damn Rayman at?).
