Well, in 2023 we are getting a love letter to the original adventures in Assassin's Creed Mirage. This smaller scale experience has quickly become one of our most anticipated upcoming Assassin's Creed games, one which will take us to ninth-century Baghdad and return to the social stealth foundations that helped propel the franchise to greatness.

The tricksy little creature that is Gollum is getting his own game.

Developer: TBC
Release date:
TBC

Just like the first game, there will be a whole host of different vampire clans with different abilities and social standings. Heavy on RPG elements like player choice, a strong narrative, and dialogue options, the sequel looks set to build on the lore and elements of the first, and bring it to another generation with its own new features.

Developer: Ubisoft
Release date
: TBC

This is the long-awaited sequel to the 2003 game, set in an alien world where animals are fully evolved alongside humans and we've waited over 15 years for it! Ubisoft first revealed the game at E3 2017, and showed loads more at E3 2018. The trailers showed a hugely different visual style to the original game (to be expected), and a different cast of hero characters and themes. Since then, we haven't heard or seen all that much about it. We do know that Ubisoft is still working on the game, though, with recent job listings surfacing for the project.
