Ubisoft provided some additional details on Assassin’s Creed Infinitythe new iteration of the franchise announced recently and which will be structured as a live service experience.
The same reports that unveiled the game in advance, later officially confirmed by Ubisoft with a note, stated that unlike the main chapters, Assassin’s Creed Infinity will take place over multiple historical periods and that to expand further over time, ideally going, perhaps, to complement the main upcoming games.
Ubisoft, while confirming the existence of the project, has not provided particular details, stating only that it is a collaboration between Ubisoft Montreal (Assassin’s Creed Origins and Valhalla) e Ubisoft Quebec (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey).
A few hours ago, however, the call to investors on first quarter earnings was held at Ubisoft, and the company’s financial director, Frédérick Duguet, had the opportunity to talk about the Infinity project, defining it as “An exciting and ambitious project for the franchise”. He also claimed that Ubisoft is “Committed to staying true to AC’s DNA, which means high quality narrative experiences will come.”
Duguet then added: “Regarding the project code name Infinity, we have exciting plans for the future that have the potential to significantly expand both the brand’s reach and recurring profile, while staying true to Assassin’s Creed’s legacy of rich storytelling experiences.”
Despite the details, however, don’t expect an upcoming reveal or the first Infinity video sequences anytime soon, as the game “It is in the early stages of development”. Ubisoft said it will share new details in due course.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise won’t be back this year with a new chapter, but players won’t run out of steam. In fact, at E3 2021 it was announced that Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla will also be supported during Year 2 with new content and expansions, making it the most enduring game of the series ever.
