Ubisoft art director Jean-Luc Sala and series executive producer Marc-Alexis Cote have officially denied rumors of a remake (or remaster) of the first Assassin’s Creed.
Initially, reports of a re-release came from not one, but several insiders who definitely leaked Assassin’s Creed: Mirage.
In particular, YouTuber j0nathan, whose leaks regarding the game were mostly true, stated that the Assassin’s Creed re-release would be part of the Mirage season pass (which, as it now turned out, does not actually exist), while others simply claimed that the remake is under development.
In a conversation with Axios, Kote denied this information. Jean-Luc Sala, speaking separately with Eurogamer, added that an update to the original Assassin’s Creed was not in the plans, at least not by his team.
“Yeah, that’s not what we do. I’m completely immersed in Mirage and I can tell you we’re not doing a remake of Assassin’s Creed 1.”
Especially for fans of the first games in the series, Ubisoft is making Assassin’s Creed: Mirage, which will be released in 2023 and will be the last cross-gen game in the series. More about the project here.
