‘Assassin's Creed Infinity’ Is A Huge, Story Driven Experience, Says Ubisoft

Assassin’s Creed Infinity, the newest entry to the series, is not a free-to-play title in spite of the rumours swirling about what this online game is offering players.

Assassin’s Creed is sort of like your younger sibling. You’ve known them, well, their whole life, and as the years pass they change like you’ve changed. One day, you turn to them and say, “you like Milkybars, don’t you, Assassin’s Creed?” And they reply, “I used to, but I’ve kind of grown out of that phase.” The silence that hangs in the air reinforces your terrible mortality. 

There’s no getting round the fact that the earlier Assassin’s Creed games are a world apart from the more recent ones, with the new integration of RPG elements and a step away from the stealth-centric linear mission structure. With the reveal of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a live service title with multiple different time periods to choose from, longtime fans felt like this was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

“Rather than continuing to pass the baton from game to game, we profoundly believe this is an opportunity for one of Ubisoft’s most beloved franchises to evolve in a more integrated and collaborative manner,” said Ubisoft in an announcement earlier this summer. Still, it’s tough to judge what Infinity actually is because the company hasn’t been specific. 

Well, we have found out one thing for certain now. CEO Yves Guillemot has stated plainly that this live-service title isn’t going to be a free-to-play offering in the company’s second quarter earnings call held on October 28th. “It’s going to be a very innovative game but it will have what players already have in all the Assassin’s Creed games, all the elements that they love to get in them right from the start,” explained Guillemot.

“It’s going to be a huge game but with lots of elements that already exist in the games that we published in the past,” he added, and CFO Frédérick Duguet clarified that Infinity “is still at an early stage of development”. Again, this isn’t too specific, but a scoop from an insider seems to suggest that the game is taking inspiration from Hitman, of all things.
