A new report from Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson has revealed early details about Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Hexe.

The game’s official teaser already revealed that it will focus on witchcraft. A previous report from Bloomberg also stated that it will be set in the Holy Roman Empire (Central Europe) during the 16th Century.

In his new report, Henderson explains that Hexe is “still in a relatively early stage of development” and that release is expected in 2026 on the Infinity platform.

For those who don’t know, Infinity is intended to be the central platform for all Assassin’s Creed titles. It will apparently launch alongside Assassin’s Creed Red later this year.

Assassin’s Creed Hexe will be a “a more linear experience compared to its predecessors”, the report continues, that will feature some open-world elements and be “akin to some of the earlier Assassin’s Creed games.”

The game will feature female protagonist Elsa who has supernatural abilities. Footage that has been reviewed by Henderson reportedly shows Elsa “being hunted by 16th-century German soldiers” and using a spell to possess a nearby cat which the player then takes control of. The footage takes place in the “dark and gloomy” cobbled streets of a city.

The report also states that Hexe will implement a Fear system inspired by the Jack The Ripper DLC for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

The game will take place on the backdrop of the infamous early modern witch trials, which saw approximately 40,000 to 60,000 people executed for allegedly practising witchcraft.

Hexe is reportedly one of nine upcoming Ubisoft titles that are currently in development.
