To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Assassin’s Creed saga, Ubisoft publicly shared a lot of news about the future of the series during Ubisoft Forward on September 10. Among the information learned, there is also something about the new Assassin’s Creed Infinity project, which is outlined in a very different way from the speculation made a few days ago. In this article, we will try to dispel as much doubt as possible about the nature of the project, telling you everything. What you need to know about Assassin’s Creed Infinity.


Assassin's Creed Infinity is not a game, next Mirage

Assassin’s Creed Infinity is not a game, and we can say that with certainty. Marc Alexis Côté, executive producer of the entire franchise, said this during Ubisoft Forward and reiterated it at a press conference we attended (you can read the report at this link).

Infinity will be “one” access point For our fans, the Assassin’s Creed franchise for the future “. A kind of personal Animus that players can use at any time? Côté responds positively to his colleague’s question during the Forward, and continues, “Infinity we will logically combine all our experiences and all players.”

However, the fact that Infinity is an online platform should not be confused with a game. multiplayer online that actually exists but is Codenamed Invictus; still in an embryonic stage and on this occasion some of the people involved in the development of For Honor and Rainbow Six Siege have been mobilized, the excellence that Ubisoft can deliver in terms of multiplayer experience.

Côté went a little further during the press conference and new generation center epic. “The main theme Infinity is built around is the discovery of DNA… it’s like we take an Animus and put it on your desktop. From there you can jump back in time and explore the memories we’re going to present to you. This abstraction also works in the opposite sense to support future games that don’t exist yet. centre will come upon all experiences (it would make sense to talk here) platformsbut Côté uses the term experience, ed.), opens up new possibilities. Creatively, it provides developers with the tools to deliver a diverse experience to the public that goes beyond the traditional. which can only be known and experienced by the public as triple A titles. advertisement instead, it manifests all the actions taken on the franchise and helps us shift the public’s attention from one product to the next. Second, Infinity Hub is where our meta stories will be collected and synced to the game timeline. (…) In the next stage, we will take a better look at the meta-narratives about the series and this hub will help us in the initiative.”


Assassin's Creed Infinit will add continuity to all the events described in the saga.

Assassin’s Creed Infinity told this way looks great information collector It is dedicated to the epic, an always consultable mega-encyclopedia that collects and researches all series-related productions with the same dignity, whether they relate to triple-A games, minor spin-offs, or even TV series. comic book. And that’s definitely a good thing, although I admit that I’ve derailed a bit over the years. meta stories epic. In addition, there are a few small chapters that collect narrative aspects or really interesting characters that deserve to be deepened: the adventures of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, the Liberation spin-off on PlayStation Vita, and the list is long. The only doubt is perhaps understanding what Ubisoft will decide to bring to the canon of the saga… yes Assassin’s Creed movie, we are talking about you.

However, during Forward, it is mentioned that Infinity will have an online component without a multiplayer experience. What was said here at the press conference on the subject is very useful. Ubisoft Link. We are talking about a free service where registration is required to play Ubisoft games, a special account where the player can access all Ubisoft experiences and any game rewards. For example, in Assassin’s Creed, experience points are accumulated that can be spent unlocking exclusive content in parallel with trophies and achievements related to PlayStation and Xbox respectively. We strongly believe that Infinity could be an enhanced, vertical version of Ubisoft Connect for the Assassin’s Creed saga: login and access are done with your Connect data, but everything else is focused solely on the content of the series. without forgetting your role virtual community spaceInvaluable to Ubisoft that nothing prevents the inclusion of forums or virtual meeting places for fans.

So the rumors that Baghdad and feudal Japan weren’t as wrong as Infinity’s plot. Today we know that these are not simple episodes, but Assassin’s Creed Mirage, formerly Codename Rift and Codename Red theater respectively. Of course, if we want to go even further and try to predict at least 10 years into the future, the Assassin’s Creed saga lives and thrives in this ecosystem. scalarIt’s the cloud computing engine that seems to be Ubisoft’s flagship, but we know we’re letting our imaginations run wild.

inner philosophy

Codename Red is the first installment of the new phase of the Assassin's Creed series.

At the press conference, however, Côté spoke of Infinity in other terms as well. “Infinity is also a name we use internally. new production philosophy and that’s what we want our teams to embrace as we work on Assassin’s Creed. “A report on the Ubisoft website in July 2022 reads: “The new build is based on a collaboration between multiple studios, with Marc-Alexis Côté as Executive Producer for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. (…) This change is part of the overall evolution of the video game industry. The pandemic and remote working has changed the situation. the way we play and this has made us rethink our organizational structure.(…) Rather than keep changing game management between different studios, we believe this decision presents a unique opportunity for one of the most beloved Ubisoft franchises: to evolve in a more integrated and collaborative context, independent of their physical location. There was less focus on single studios and more on talent and directors”.

Codename Hexe adds more variety to franchise offering

Côté also allows us to participate in the goals that the Assassin’s Creed saga will set for the future. key points: placing bets on new projects to consolidate the brand’s position in the triple-A market, reach audiences with products from cross-media partnerships (such as Netflix series), and expand the series’ audience. Simply put, Ubisoft wants to create a range of experiences for every taste, every budget, and every lifestyle so that every user can find their own way.

just by looking next offer In terms of video games, Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be a return to the origins of the saga but the open word RPG nature will survive Codename Red and they can for those who want to experience the same formula on mobile. ie with Codename Jade. And again, Hexe certainly seems to be taking a dark turn for the series, and who knows what they’ll bring with Codename Invictus’ multiplayer. To all this, if we add everything that has been created and everything that will come, even serials, serials and novels, access to a center that organizes and organizes all this is absolutely essential.
