Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be the next game of Ubisoft and it will offer live online game service. It is reported to be under development at Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec and will provide an evolving online platform with multiple historical locations.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity will offer a live online game service
According to Bloomberg, Ubisoft is working on a live online game service for the Assassin’s Creed series. It will be called Assassin’s Creed Infinity and should span several games in the series. According to Jason Schreier, the service will evolve over time and connect games with different settings.
Even if the previous Assassin’s Creed games were set in certain historical settings such as ancient Greece or Ptolemaic Egypt, Infinity is said to contain several settings according to an unspecified source. The individual games on the platform might look and feel different, but they will all be interconnected, Schreier said in his report.
The development of an Assassin’s Creed game usually involves countless employees in a dozen Ubisoft offices, which are alternately managed by teams in Montreal or Quebec City. The Montreal team was responsible for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla after the Quebec team that made the previous Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game.
The last parts of the Assassin’s Creed series already contained many live service elements, so the unveiling of an overarching project is not too much of a surprise. What changes Assassin’s Creed Infinity will actually bring to the popular Ubisoft series remains to be seen. According to Schreier, it could be years before we see the result.
It is believable that Ubisoft has something like Fortnite, Warzone, or GTA Online in mind. They are service games that keep gamers busy for years, often adding new content or changing the experience in massive ways. What do you think about it?
