Ubisoft has confirmed that its forthcoming Assassin’s Creed mobile game is codenamed Jade, and is set in ancient China. There’s no release window to speak of as yet.
Curiously, Ubisoft cannot confirm who is co-developing the title.
As you can see in the below reveal trailer, it’s a triple-A-style open world adventure just like the console games. Ubisoft also said players will be able to create their own character, unlike most other Assassin’s Creed games.
We spoke to Assassin’s Creed series director Marc-Alexis Cote last week for VGC, and when quizzed about who co-developed the title he responded:
“We’ll announce more about how we’re working with our partners on this game. We’re going to have a team internally that’s working with our partner to make sure that the game stays true to what we want our Assassin’s Creed games to be. We’re partnering where we feel we need expertise to be able to deliver the experience that our fans deserve.”
There’s another Assassin’s Creed game on its way to mobile through a three-game deal with Netflix, which was also announced as part of Ubisoft’s Forward event today.
