A few hours ago, an article from the site Bloomberg revealed the next Assassin's Creed would be called Infinity and it would be a live service game, such as Fortnite and other multiplayer titles.
The official announcement from Ubisoft came right after Bloomberg's piece, confirming some details but leaving others (such as the "live service" scheme) in the dark.
Although there aren't many details about the project, the statement talks about the evolution of the saga and what direction they are choosing to go next.
First of all, Assassin's Creed Infinity is a cross-studio collaboration, being developed by both Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec. This new project is being led by Executive Producer Marc-Alexis Côté, the creative director of Assassin's Creed Syndicate and the producer of Odyssey.
The rest of the team is formed by Head of the Brand Étienne Allonie, Producer Julien Laferrière and Creative Directors Jonathan Dumont and Clint Hocking.
When speaking about the development's direction, the statement says that the team is trying "a more integrated and collaborative manner that’s less centered on studios and more focused on talent and leadership." It will be interesting to see where the company goes with this new mindset.
As already mentioned, there are no official words about Assassin's Creed becoming a "game as a service" experience. For that and further details, we should wait for later announcements. The next Assassin's Creed title will take a long a time to see the light, according to Bloomberg (at least 2024), so we will know more about this title for the years to come.
