There have been rumours for a while that Ubisoft might be looking at remaking the original Assassin's Creed from 2007, but the company has now denied this in two separate interviews over the past few days.
Firstly, series executive producer Marc-Alexis Côté told Axios that a remake simply wasn't in development, and then Assassin's Creed Mirage art director Jean-Luc Sala suggested the same thing to Eurogamer - at least in regards to his team. Here's what he had to say when questioned about it:
"Yeah that's not what we're doing.
I'm fully dedicated to Mirage and I can tell you we are not remaking AC1."
The official plan right now for Assassin's Creed is to release Mirage in 2023, followed by Codename Red and Codename Hexe at some point in the fairly distant future. AC: Infinity will then act as a hub that ties various experiences together.
Don't forget that the original Assassin's Creed is at least backwards compatible on Xbox One, Series X and Series S, running at 60FPS on the two new consoles thanks to FPS Boost, and supporting 4K Ultra HD on Xbox One X and Xbox Series X due to it being enhanced a few years ago. It might be old, but it looks amazing on those consoles!
