Pierre Boudreau, a Ubisoft senior writer working on Assassin’s Creed: Project Red, may have leaked artwork of the game’s protagonist.
Eurogamer reports that Boudreau initially posted a photo on his LinkedIn profile that players suspected was a female assassin. Although there isn’t much to see in the image, it does contain some iconic Assassin’s Creed imagery, including the logo and the traditional peaked cap worn by many characters in the series. Additionally, the color scheme shown is consistent with the trailer that Ubisoft released last year.
It’s worth noting that Boudreau has since changed his background photo. In place of the unnamed Assassin’s Creed character, a photo of Eivor from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is included.
Assassin’s Creed: Project Red is said to be the studio’s “next premium flagship title” and is expected to release sometime in 2024. In addition to the release date, Project Red will take place in feudal Japan, where players can live out “A very powerful shinobi fantasy.” The team responsible for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will take the lead on Project Red.
This isn’t the only Assassin’s Creed title Ubisoft is currently developing. The team behind Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is working on Project Hexe, and according to executive producer Marc-Alexis Côté, it will be “a very different kind of Assassin’s Creed game.”
