Ubisoft announced today its next Assassin's Creed: Infinity.
NEW: The future of Assassin’s Creed is live service. Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec have teamed up for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a huge platform planned to have multiple settings. But after the reorg, several men accused of abuse remain in charge. My latest: https://t.co/fre2ljvh8g— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) July 7, 2021
The game is set to be a massive online platform that will evolve over time. Instead of one historical setting, there will be multiple, added as the months and years post-release go by. Each setting is set to look and feel different from the others.
Ubisoft is looking to mimic the success of GTA V's online mode, a game thats 8 years old and still as popular as ever.
Last year the studio faced allegations of widespread sexual misconduct that lead to studio heads and the CCO leaving and a reorganization of the company occurring. But others who had allegations against them still remain, leaving many dissatisfied of the way executives have handled things. Ubisoft is also unifying its Montreal and Quebec teams to work on the game, and Bloomberg reports that the two have a pretty nasty rivalry between them.
The game has no release date but is "years away" from release.
