Assassin’s Creed Featuring 16th Century Witch Trials To Leave Lasting Mark On Series

Expert Verified By

Could Start New Direction For Assassin's Creed!

A total of 11 Assassin’s Creed games are currently in development by Ubisoft, and one of them is Assassin’s Creed Hexe which was first announced during the Ubisoft Forward event last year.

Though it has already been over a year since the game’s announcement, Ubisoft has not shared much about the game. However, a recent LinkedIn post highlights an exciting direction for the game.

Why it matters: Assassin’s Creed Hexe is set in the 16th-century witch hunting era. The distinct setting has led to plenty of excitement for the game.

Yara Tabbara works at Ubisoft Montreal. The team is hiring a Senior Gameplay Animator for Assassin’s Creed Hexe, and Yara Tabbara had this to say about the upcoming title:

“I can assure you that this game will leave a lasting mark on the franchise.”

This could mean that Assassin’s Creed Hexe will include massive differences, setting it apart from the franchise.

Previously, games like Assassin’s Creed Origins have left a mark on the franchise with the introduction of RPG mechanics. Yara Tabbara’s statement could hint at a similar evolution for the series with Hexe.

The first trailer for the game had an element of mystery and horror. As such, Ubisoft may be implementing horror or mystery elements in the franchise, leading to a drastic shift in direction for the series.

Additionally, a comment under the LinkedIn post hoped for strong feminine energy in the game. In response to the comment, Yara Tabbara stated that Assassin’s Creed Hexe would not disappoint in this department.

As such, the game may have a female lead character. Recently, games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla have featured female playable characters. However, this appears to be changing for Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

Still, fans of female assassins will not be disappointed by Yara Tabbara’s response. A rumor has also claimed that Assassin’s Creed Red will feature a playable female character.

The game is expected to follow a witch theme, with Ubisoft confirming that it will not be a part of the RPG offerings from Assassin’s Creed.

Previously, a reliable leaker claimed the game would take place during 16th century Central Europe, featuring witch trials. However, Assassin’s Creed Hexe is far from release, as the game is expected to arrive after Assassin’s Creed Red.
