Assassin’s creed it will undergo another modification for the future. After changing its genre along the way – and signing three excellent RPG games – the franchise will now evolve to become more than just a game that is released every two years.
The details of what the future will be like Assassin’s creed are not very accurate so far beyond the report of Bloomberg, but Ubisoft revealed in its official blog that the project will be a collaborative effort between two of his Canadian studios located in Montreal and Quebec. Infinity it could operate as a base platform that updates over time to receive content in the style of the saga, with various settings and times.
Part of this was already seen in the recent Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, whose most recent expansion called Wrath of the Druids It was a completely new map, taking the game off the island of Great Britain and taking players on a tour of Ireland in the Viking age.
However, so far Ubisoft has said nothing more about Infinity except that it is a project in development and whose name could change.
Recently, Ubisoft announced that it would make a change in its strategy and that the new plan would have them more focused on games as a service.
The company has had successful results in some games based on that model. The most mediatic is The Division, that in its two installments it has had very good results. But apart from that franchise, projects like For Honor or Rainbow six siege they have also remained in force with that model.
Perhaps it is understandable that they want to take a similar path with Assassin’s Creed, especially when thinking about the costs of those projects. The three most recent games –Origins, Odyssey Y Valhalla— They are massive: thousands of people work on their development and yet, beyond the setting and the story, there are no major differences in game mechanics and systems.
It will be interesting to see how it ends Assassin’s Creed Infinity, especially since some fans have already had adverse reactions knowing that the current format could, eventually, change again.
