Ubisoft announces Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is rumored to be an expanding live service project
On the heels of rumors breaking this morning about a new major chapter of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Ubisoft has made the game’s existence official.
While we don’t get too many details from the company’s announcement, here’s what we do know. Assassin’s Creed Infinity (which is noted as a codename) is said to be early in development, coming as a “cross-studio, collaborative structure” between members of Ubisoft Quebec and Ubisoft Montreal.
From there, Jason Schreier over at Bloomberg offers up some extra rumored details for the game. Supposedly, Assassin’s Creed Infinity “sets out to create a massive online platform that evolves over time, according to people familiar with its development.”
Schreier goes on to explain that, according to his sources, unlike previous Assassin’s Creed games that focused on specific locations or time periods, Infinity will “contain multiple settings with room to expand to others in the months and years following its debut.”
The Bloomberg article goes into more depth not only on the supposed plans for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, but also the shadow that continues to loom over not only this game, but all of Ubisoft, due to the unresolved claims of sexual misconduct.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity seems to still be years away, not to mention an idea yet to be fully set in stone, so it’ll no doubt still be a while before we know more solid details about what it’ll offer fans of the franchise.
