After reports circulated online, Ubisoft confirms that a new project is in early development, codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity.
According to Bloomberg, where the news was first reported, the new project will be a live service game, like Fortnite and Anthem, which will make players engaged longer to complete quests.
The report added that, fittingly, the new title will be set in multiple historical settings, previously with only specific settings, with updates to arrive post-debut.
A spokesperson told Bloomberg that Ubisoft seeks to “exceed the expectations of fans who have been asking for a more cohesive approach” to the series.
Infinity will be the work of the cross-studio structure of Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec.
“Rather than continuing to pass the baton from game to game, we profoundly believe this is an opportunity for one of Ubisoft’s most beloved franchises to evolve in a more integrated and collaborative manner that’s less centered on studios and more focused on talent and leadership,” the video game publisher said in a statement.
The latest title, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, sold more copies in its first week than any other game title of the 14year-old franchise, Ubisoft reported last November. It is available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PS4, PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
