Ubisoft Writer Leaks Assassin’s Creed Red Female Protagonist Character Art

Assassin's Creed Infinity, Ubisoft's hub for connecting game experiences, hints at new multiplayer adventures in the AC universe.


The female lead in Assassin’s Creed Red appears to have leaked online. According to Eurogamer, the unidentified lead, who can be seen brandishing a katana and donning the recognizable hooded cloak against a red backdrop, is featured in an image that Ubisoft writer Pierre Boudreau unintentionally uploaded to LinkedIn. Eivor, the main character of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, has since taken the position of the original portrait with the distinctive emblem. This is consistent with the studio’s own assertions from a 2022 presentation, in which it stated that the next installment will take place in feudal Japan and return to open-world role-playing game aspects.

Although a 2024 window was hinted at earlier this year, Assassin’s Creed Codename Red does not currently have a release date. This fits with Ubisoft’s yearly launch cycle formula. The game will have two main characters: the previously stated female shinobi and an African immigrant who becomes a samurai. The latter character appears to be modeled after the real-life Japanese Sengoku Period warrior Yasuke. This information was obtained by InsiderGaming. How these two characters will interact in the game is unknown, and it’s uncertain if we’ll be able to play as both of them at first or if we’ll have to choose one at random, as in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Though Assassin’s Creed Red returns to the contentious open-world format, it seems that the game will emphasize stealth, with players hiding in shadows and extinguishing torches from a distance.

Assassin’s Creed Red is being developed by Ubisoft Quebec, which is well-known for producing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Jonathan Dumont is in charge of this project. It is a component of the publisher’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a single hub meant to connect several distinct AC games. Plans call for some independent multiplayer experiences. VP of Assassin’s Creed Marc-Alexis Côté stated at the 2022 Ubisoft Forward event that “Infinity is going to be a hub that will unite all of our different experiences and our players together in meaningful ways.” While the witch trials were taking place in the later era of the Holy Roman Empire, Ubisoft also revealed at the time that a sinister addition to the AC series was being confirmed under the codename Hexe. The Assassin’s Creed logo-shaped talisman in the woodland was shown in a teaser trailer for the game.

When Assassin’s Creed Mirage was released by the publisher earlier this month, it took less than a week to become Ubisoft’s biggest new-gen launch in terms of unit sales. Players jumped 60 million times over in that period, and they spent 479 years parkouring Baghdad’s roofs throughout the ninth century. 

A release date has also been announced for the ambitious virtual reality Assassin’s Creed project, known as Nexus. The game will take the viewpoints of three well-known assassins from the franchise: Ezio Auditore, Connor Kenway, and Kassandra. The game launches on November 16 and can be pre-ordered on Meta Quest VR right now.

Assassin’s Creed Red does not yet have a release window, but when it does, we can anticipate seeing it debut on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X.
