Maybe we’ll take a first look at it Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red’s Protagonist in a new work of art.
A little over a year ago, Ubisoft revealed a game that many fans had wanted for years: Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red, a title that promises to bring the series to Japan for the first time. We haven’t heard anything about it since, but the priority was probably the recently released Assassin’s Creed Mirage. But as one user discovered on the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit, we now at least know what Codename Red’s protagonist looks like. The look in question comes from a banner on the LinkedIn page of Pierre Boudreau, an “award-winning writer for Assassin’s Creed.”

There is no clear confirmation that the art is for Codename Red, but there are some indications that it is for the game set in Japan. For one, you can spot a pagoda, a type of tower found throughout Japan, whose entire background is covered in a red hue. Not to mention the figure, a young woman holding a Japanese-looking sword. Boudreau’s About section also states that he is “currently working on Assassin’s Creed: Project Red,” which I think is a mistranslation, but I think either way you’re starting to get the picture.
Whether Boudreaus is specifically teasing that more information about Codename Red is on the way, or whether it’s a classic case of “I didn’t think people would be looking for new things on my LinkedIn about the game I’m working on, that “Technically it should be public,” but considering we haven’t heard anything about the game in a year, it’s likely we’ll hear something soon. The Game Awards are only a few months away, after all, so it’s entirely possible we’ll see something then. At least we have the pretty good Mirage that can tide us over until then.
