Ubisoft is working on a new project codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity. According to game journalist Jason Schreier, it will be an Assassin’s Creed game based on the live service model. New traditional games from the series may not be released anymore.
Unlike previous games in the Assassin’s Creed series, Infinity will feature many historical eras, with players having room to expand into other eras in the months and years following release. Schrader writes for Bloomberg. He builds this on sources familiar with the development of the game. So it is about an extension Huge online platform that develop over time. The individual games on the platform may look different and different, but they will all be interconnected.
On Twitter, Schreyer reports Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec studios have joined forces for Assassin’s Creed Infinity. Traditionally, the two studios alternate with the different games in the series. For example, Montreal was in charge of Valhalla, while Quebec was at the helm of the Odyssey. Both teams will now work together, although according to Shriek, we’re still far from the release. He says Infinity won’t be released until 2024 at the earliest.
Ubisoft informed Schreier through a spokesperson that the game does exist, although the publisher did not want to go into the details of Infinity. It says Ubisoft’s goal is to “exceed the expectations of fans who demand a more coherent approach”.
Schreyer argues that Infinity could also become a hub of sorts, giving players the opportunity to play many of the Assassin’s Creed games. This project is believed to mean that there will be no more traditional Assassin’s Creed titles between now and the release of Infinity, in most expansions for existing titles and other smaller content.
He proves this by referring to the information that both Quebec and Montreal are working on Infinity, which are the main studios for traditional games. This could mean that Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, which was released last November, was the last casual game in the series.
And the business model for Assassin’s Creed Infinity isn’t clear yet. It can become a free to play online platform in the context of Fortnite or GTA Online; These games are regularly updated with new content and changes to keep players entertained for years to come. The live services category brings a lot of money to game publishers these days and is often the biggest source of income. Ubisoft still lags behind other major publishers.
