In an interview for the company published on Ubisoft’s website on Thursday, CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that remakes of Assassin’s Creed games are in the works, although he does not specify which ones.

“Players may be excited about some of the remakes, which will allow us to go back to some of the games we’ve made in the past and modernize them,” he says, suggesting this could include games made before Odyssey“There are worlds in some of our older Assassin’s Creed games that are still incredibly rich.”

This would be consistent with anecdotal reports that Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag A remake was in the works. According to KotakuHowever, the game was still in its early stages of development and likely wouldn’t launch for years. Black flag is one of the more beloved installments in the series from its earlier years, with the pirate ship mechanic finally making its way into Skull bones with doubtful success.

Regardless of whether the next games will be remakes or fresh releases, Guillemot promised players a “diversified” gameplay experience. Assassin’s Creed Hexwhich we still don’t know much about, will be a completely different experience from previous installments in the series, although Ubisoft is not revealing any details about what it will involve.

“There are many good things ahead of us, including: Assassin’s Creed Hexethat we announced and which will be a completely different game Shadows of Assassin’s Creed. I think we will surprise people,” he says.

Guillemot also shared his thoughts on the current video game industry, including how it could apply artificial intelligence to improve non-player characters (NPCs), as well as how he decries the toxicity of the Internet.

“One thing that worries me right now is the malicious and personal online attacks directed at some of our team members and partners. “I want to make it clear that we at Ubisoft condemn these hateful acts in the strongest possible terms, and I encourage the rest of the industry and gamers to condemn them,” he says.

He’s probably talking about social media attacks in response to Assassin’s Creed Shadows reveal. Many Internet users were not satisfied with the latest game in the series, which features a black protagonist, the legendary samurai Yasuke.
