It seems that Assassin’s Creed may return to multiplayer gaming with a new standalone game codenamed Invictus. Check out the complete details below.
Assassin’s Creed: Invictus Multiplayer Game Could Be Free-To-Play
Ubisoft is working on a new Assassin’s Creed game focused on multiplayer. Now a new multiplayer game of Assassin’s Creed, codenamed Invictus, will be developed by the creators of Rainbow Six Siege and For Honor, both of which are popular multiplayer games with players around the world.
Although few details about the game have been released, it has been confirmed that it will likely be free to play and will feature characters from across the Assassin’s Creed franchise. In the most recent title of Assassin’s Creed Unity, players were still allowed to go on an assassin hunt with friends, one of the positive things about the rather negative launch of the game at the time.
Ubisoft’s project lead, Marc-Alexis Côté, said to IGN that is a possibility, although they haven’t finalized the exact plans for Invictus’ business model. “We have not finalized our plans for the business model for Invictus, but it is a possibility [that it will be free-to-play],” Côté said.
He also hinted that the game could see a return of previous protagonists and enemies, saying, “I think the concept art that we had for Invictus kind of hints to this possibility of crossing over characters from different periods. So I think you can see the intention there of Invictus allowing us again to bridge our different games together.” The said concept art was part of a Ubisoft Forward presentation that was delivered to the press but has not yet been shown at the event.
It’s unclear which platforms Assassin’s Creed Invictus will be available on or when it will be released, but Côté indicated that it would likely be some time before more information about the game became available to the public.
Still, we believe that the multiplayer Assassin’s Creed game won’t be released anytime soon, as the Ubisoft team has focused on creating Assassin’s Creed Mirage, a new mainstream game set to be released in 2023.
