Ubisoft Has Officially Announced 'Assassin's Creed Shadows', Trailer Coming This Week

First unveiled back in September 2022 as 'Assassin's Creed Red', Ubisoft has officially titled its next big Assassin's Creed game - and it's set a date for the reveal trailer too. You can catch the 'Official Cinematic World Premiere Trailer' of Assassin's Creed Shadows at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 5pm GMT on Wednesday, May 15.

Yep, this is the one set in Japan - a setting that's been desired for ages within the Assassin's Creed community. Ahead of this week's grand reveal, the team has posted a very teaser-y teaser on social media:

Assassin's Creed Shadows has been described as "the next evolution of Assassin’s Creed’s open-world RPG design", allowing players to "live a very powerful Shinobi fantasy". This sounds like a big one, and we're intrigued to see how it's shaping up!

Ubisoft's major E3-style 'Forward' showcase airs just about a month after this on June 10, where we'd expect to see a proper gameplay demo for the newly-titled Assassin's Creed Shadows. For now, pen this cinematic trailer airing into your diaries for May 15th - and we'll see what next month brings.
