Many conform to the idea that Assassin’s Creed has changed itself for the better from where it first started out, while others would say that the evolution has turned out to be worse than ever. Whatever the concept of the broad consensus, Assassin’s Creed is a timeless franchise that has inspired many video games. According to a recent Bloomberg report, however, it’s about time that this series took a speck of inspiration for its own.
Bloomberg has a firm reason to believe that a new project is making headway over at Ubisoft, with the title of it being Assassin’s Creed Infinity. The company’s representatives have shown reluctance to discuss the game in more detail, but the question of whether this is going to happen or not has been answered with a solid yes.
What we now know is that Infinity will be a live service game, comprising an immense platform with dynamic settings and evolving gameplay. The game plan is similar to what has kept Grand Theft Auto V’s userbase alive, even after all these years. Additions after additions, GTA Online remains consistently updated to this day, and Rockstar shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Where the previous Assassin’s Creed iterations would feature a particular setting and then build the game upon it, the Infinity project is set out to involve many settings. Not all of them will be available on day one, of course, but similar to the service model of GTA Online and Fortnite – eventual yet steady inclusions.
We’re still supposedly a long while away from a launch date, or even more information on this game, so better sit tight and hope for a breath of fresh air. A Ubisoft spokesperson in talks with Bloomberg says that the company intends to, “exceed the expectations of fans who have been asking for a more cohesive approach.”
Assassin’s Creed Infinity is going to be no less than a large-scale project. The game will be developed by teamwork from both Ubisoft Quebec and Ubisoft Montreal, which happen to be two of the most famed Ubisoft studios.
How all this is going to play out is something unique to ponder. A live service Assassin’s Creed can either make or break the franchise, and we’re not wagering on the latter.
