Assassin's Creed 1 Remake Hopes Debunked as Producer Takes the Floor

Ubisoft is not working on a remake of the first Assassin's Creed. At the same time, the company promises more polished releases of the new installments.

Black clouds have been gathering above Ubisoft for the past few years. Marc-Alexis Cote - producer of the Assassin's Creed series - decided to speak on the company's condition and the studio's hopes for the brand. Unfortunately, Cote confirmed that Ubisoft is not working on a remake of the first part.

The interview was conducted by axios. It shows that the French studio, through Assassin's Creed, is trying to regain quality, productivity and reputation after several dismal years. The developer thus confirmed work on six games from the universe (including Mirage, Hexe and Red), and in the reshaping of the development process, the studio plans to extend the development time of its games. At the same time, Cote noted that none of the projects currently in development involve a refreshed version of the first part or a crossover set in Egypt.

These words, unfortunately, may be sad news for some players. The first installment stole the hearts of players. For some time the community had been anticipating a full-fledged remake of the game on the engine used by Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. Also part of our editorial team hoped for a remake of the first part (although at the same time did not believe it would come true), especially as this year marks the 15th anniversary since the 2007 release. After this disappointing news, the community has to make do with mods, such as CryNation 2.0 that changes lighting and shadow quality:

Assassin's Creed was released in 2007 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and in 2008 also on PC. The game was warmly received by critics and gamers alike, recording an average rating of 81% among reviewers and 76% among users on Metacritic for the Xbox 360 version. In 2016, an edition called Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection was released, refreshing the three next installments of the series on PS4 and Xbox One consoles (with a Nintendo Switch version joining in 2022). The compilation raises the resolution to 1080p and slightly improves the graphics.
