Assassin's creed infinity is the codename of the next instalment in the ubisoft’s Assassin's creed franchise.
As reported the game will be a live service game and will unfold across various historical settings and receive continuous updates to keep players engaged. The game will also join the likes of valorant and apex legends.
After long rumours Ubisoft recently confirmed the game by writing a blog post “a collaborative, cross-studio structure between Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec will guide, grow, evolve, and define the overall future of Assassin’s Creed that includes an important upcoming, early-in-development project codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity”.
Although the recent games of the franchise has already offered a live service game experience upto some extent by allowing players to discover vast worlds for 100s of hours and completing side quests The upcoming game will be a big step in the trend which started in 2017 when assassin creed origins allowed players to explore a large map instead of a city.
The spokesperson of the Ubisoft said that he wants to exceed the expectations of the fans that are asking for more cohesive approach. He also said “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 cantered on studios and more focused on talent and leadership, no matter where they are within Ubisoft,” said Nathalie Bouchard, managing director at Ubisoft Quebec, and Christophe Derennes, managing director at Ubisoft Montreal, in Ubisoft’s blog. “Most importantly, Assassin’s Creed has always been developed by multicultural teams with various backgrounds and perspectives that have influenced the depiction of its characters, locations, and cultures. While we know there’s always room for improvement, we believe this new structure allows us to ensure that diversity and representation within our teams continues to grow and match that of our players.”
But according to some unidentified sources some complications remain in the development pipeline. Bloomberg’s sources said that “some managers accused of abusive behaviour remain in senior positions after the reorganization. “When asked about this, a Ubisoft spokesperson told Bloomberg, “Employees who have been under investigation would not remain at Ubisoft if results of investigations warranted termination.” The spokesperson also declined to comment on individual cases.
Ubisoft also confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be led by Marc-Alexis Côté, who will serve as executive producer of the Assassin’s Creed franchise; Ubisoft Montreal’s Julien Laferrière, who has been named senior producer; and Jonathan Dumont and Clint Hocking, who will lead as creative directors, overseeing the teams at Ubisoft Quebec and Ubisoft Montreal, respectively.
