The original Assassin's Creed game is set to be getting a remake or remaster soon. Ubisoft gave us some very obvious hints in their recent anniversary video. Here's what gave the game away...

The original Assassin's Creed game seems to have slipped away into the further reaches of my memory. When looking back on the franchise, a whopping 15 years later, Assassin's Creed 2 is the game most easily remembered. But we've already seen Ezio so many times, and we'll be seeing him again soon, shouldn't we be reunited with Altaïr for a change? Ubisoft seems to think so.

Assassin's Creed 1 Hints In Anniversary Video

As first recognized by @Ikraik_original, a shot from the Assassin's Creed 15th Anniversary video shows a scene from the first Assassin's Creed game, but it looks far nicer than it ever did in 2007. Therefore, this must clearly have been captured from a recent remake of the game. Here's a side-by-side of the original shot and the shot from the anniversary video:

Yeah, okay. We're sold. This one is too obvious. Sorry, Ubisoft, you played your hand.

When Will The Assassin's Creed 1 Remake Be Released?

So far these are the first signs we've heard of the Assassin's Creed 1 remake, but it is a remake, we're not talking about the next GTA, so you should expect it in 2023. Okay, sure, maybe I am being a little optimistic, but with Assassin's Creed Infinity well underway, and Assassin's Creed Baghdad basically ready for an imminent launch, it's not that far-fetched.

Will you be interested in an Assassin's Creed 1 remake? I'd certainly like to see what Damascus looks like in 4k.
