Ubisoft recently releases a new premium DLC pack for Assassin's Creed Valhalla and may have hinted at Assassin's Creed Red.
|AC Valhalla DLC May Be Teasing Assassin's Creed Red|
Selling most number of copies on launch week, 2020 action role-playing game Assassin's Creed Valhalla by developer/publisher Ubisoft is second most profitable game in company history and has made $1 billion in revenue since its release.
Ubisoft supported AC Valhalla with three story expansions and various additional contents over time on many occasions. However, a newly released premium DLC pack has lead fans to believe that it could be a tease for Assassin's Creed Red.
Newly launched Yurei Bushido Pack for Valhalla features armor set and weapons that lead fans to speculate that Ubisoft maybe teasing what players can actually expect to get from upcoming game Assassin's Creed: Red, set in feudal Japan.
Since official social media accounts for Assassin's Creed doesn't highlight these DLC packs much often, people were very curious. Ubisoft also mentions that these artifacts "once belonged to a renowned Eastern warrior", adding further hint.

Valhalla has previously taken players to various historical time periods and otherworldly realms but never in Japan. So, any location or timeline doesn't necessarily have to make sense for new DLC packs to have links to Assassin's Creed: Red.
Also to note that "yurei" roughly translates to "ghost" or "spirit" in Japanese, which aligns with the term of assassin. Bushido is literally code of honor and morals followed by samurai warriors of Japan, lining up even more with AC Red vibes.
Yurei Bushido Pack features themed cosmetics and gear that heavily resembles to battle armor and weapon used by samurai warriors. It could possibly be a first-look at what Assassin's Creed samurai game could feel like in design aesthetic.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla will be followed by Assassin's Creed Mirage, will be set in 9th century Baghdad and release next year. Ubisoft will eventually visit long-requested feudal Japan setting in "Codename Red" via Assassin's Creed Infinity.
