Insider Gaming has reported that the game is expected to have two main protagonists, a samurai and a ninja, both with different combat mechanics, where stealth will be key to survival—as it is in any game in the franchise. The male samurai is expected to be an African refugee who has learned the ways of these shadow warriors and will follow the Assassin’s Creed in their mission, according to Insider Gaming. The report also suggests Assassin’s Creed Shadows will be fully focused on stealth.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will be released on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Ubisoft has also confirmed several other projects in the franchise are in development, such as Codename Hexe, Codename Jade, and more.
