Assassin’s Creed Infinity is set to lead the Ubisoft franchise into the future. On the occasion of the announcement of the current business figures, the company commented on the situation.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot used a call to announce current business personalities to comment on the future of Assassin’s Creed. With Assassin’s Creed Infinity, the company is known to be trying out a new live-action franchise with different stories and different designs.
Despite the changing trend compared to the previous handling of thematically closed AAA titles, however, one wouldn’t switch to a free-to-play model, as Guillemot has now explained: “It wouldn’t be free to play and there would really be a lot of narrative to have elements to offer,” he said. CEO of Ubisoft.
Moreover: “It will be a very innovative game but at the same time it will contain everything that players currently offer in all other Assassin’s Creed games, and it will incorporate all the elements that they loved from the start.”
But it will be a long time before that happens. Lead developers Jonathan Dumont and Clint Hawking, who share the role of Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec, confirmed that they are still in the early stages of development. Since the title will also be huge, according to Guillemot, it will take some time before Infinity gets their hands on it.
As of now, Assassin’s Creed Infinity is expected to offer a great online experience in an evolving world that will change over time. In this regard, the franchise is also inspired by other action giants such as Fortnite or GTA Online.
Chances are high that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will appear in Ubisoft’s fiscal year after the next at the earliest, and thus after March 2023. For the upcoming fiscal year, they’ve already said something more specific.
