As executive producer Marc-Alexis Côté confirmed in an interview, “Assassin’s Creed Hexe” will no longer be an extensive role-playing game in an open world. Instead, the developers want to rely on a completely new structure.
Last weekend, Ubisoft announced several new “Assassin’s Creed” projects. One of the surprises was “Assassin’s Creed Hexe”, which according to the current state of affairs could not be released until 2026.
Accordingly, tangible details about the gloomy project are few and far between. As Marc-Alexis Côté, the executive producer responsible for “Assassin’s Creed Hexe”, at least made it clear in an interview, his team will distance itself from the large open worlds and the action role-playing approach of titles like “Assassin’s Creed Origins” or “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla”.
Instead, according to Côté, the developers want to use a completely new structure and in this way deliver a completely new gaming experience in the “Assassin’s Creed” universe.
A gritty gaming experience set in the Middle Ages
“Hexe stands out a little bit,” Côté pointed out, glancing at recent Assassin’s Creed announcements. “One of the things we’ve learned from Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla is that we don’t have to release a new RPG every year. These games have a much longer tail and can keep players engaged and interested for a long time. Especially if we continue to support them well through our post-release efforts.”
“Hexe will offer a different experience in terms of gameplay and game structure. Hopefully that will become clear as we unveil more of this.” The action of “Assassin’s Creed Hexe” begins at the time of the witch trials in the 16th century and will be much darker than it was the case in the “Assassin’s Creed” projects of the past few years. Unfortunately, the Executive Producer left open when further details can be expected to be revealed.
