Assassin's Creed Codename Jade joins other mobile games Ubisoft is currently working on, as the publisher seeks to expand its portfolio beyond console and PC to provide some of the best games on Android and iOS.

Outside of these mobile projects, Ubisoft also shared what mainline entries are being developed for the franchise. Assassin's Creed Mirage is a smaller game that's slated to launch in 2023. Further off are Assassin's Creed Codename Red and Assassin's Creed Codename Hexe, which are set in Japan and (reportedly) the Holy Roman Empire during the witch trials, respectively. 

Both Codename Red and Codename Hexe are part of Assassin's Creed Infinity, which is a kind of platform that is being built for the future of the series.
