The future of Assassin’s Creed is a Fortnite platform as a service, says Jason Schreier

Assassin’s Creed Infinity would unify the individual installments on a single platform that would evolve over time.)

Upgrade:It is already official. Ubisoft confirmed this afternoon Assassin’s Creed Infinity as the first production of the new future of the franchise, which goes through the union under the same structure of Ubisoft Quebec and Ubisoft Montreal. At the moment the company has not wanted to go into many details, but it does confirm that this will be the next step in the evolution of a series that seeks to continue exceeding the high expectations of users after its two most recent successes, Valhalla and Odyssey.


Original news:The rise of the so-called “metaverses” is clear in the world of video games. Proposals such as Fortnite and Roblox have fostered the interest of companies in these online platforms as a service that unify other games or creations within them, and that evolve over time. According to a new article by Jason Schreier for the Bloomberg agency, this would be just the future of the Assassin’s Creed saga : a game as a service as a platform that unifies all future individual installments, with the name of Assassin’s Creed Infinity .


Individual games on the platform could look and feel differentFor now, says the renowned journalist, Assassin’s Creed Infinity is nothing more than the code name of this project that would seek to “create a massive online platform that evolves over time, ” say its sources. Instead of developing the saga through individual installments, each in a different era and setting, Infinity “will contain multiple settings, with room to expand to others in the months and years after its release […] The individual games They might look and feel different on the platform , but everyone will be connected. “



Ubisoft confirms the existence of ‘Infinity’, but they do not specify detailsGiven the scale and ambition of the task, the launch of this supposed Assassin’s Creed Infinity would be a long way off at the moment , and the plans could undergo many changes between now and the premiere, as is common in any development. Although the French company is not open to offer specific details of the project, a representative of Ubisoft confirms the existence of Infinity to the Bloomberg journalist, who points out that they seek to ” exceed the expectations of fans who have long called for a more cohesive approach” to the saga.


Who will develop Assassin’s Creed?

Until now, Ubisoft studios had taken turns developing the series. Ubisoft Montreal spearheaded the development of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla , while Ubisoft Quebec was in charge of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey , both always with the support of the rest of the company’s studios and its thousands of employees. Now, says Schreier, Ubisoft has merged the two studios to work together on Infinity , each with its own creative director, but with the Quebec team at the helm of the series. A change that will help the saga “evolve in a more integrated and collaborative way, less focused on studies and more on talent and leadership, regardless of their place within Ubisoft,” says the company representative.


This move would not have sat quite well within Ubisoft’s internal studios.This move would not have sat entirely well within Ubisoft , Schreier’s sources claim. Not only does the discontent over the cases of sexual harassment persist within the company, but the Montreal and Quebec studios would have maintained an internal rivalry for years around the saga. And this reorganization, always based on your information, would have irritated some Ubisoft employees. Likewise, back to the harassment cases, some managers accused of their behavior have kept their positions after these changes, which would have caused a new series of complaints from company employees.


The Ubisoft representative contacted by the Bloomberg agency does not mention specific cases, but assures that “with any employee who was accused and remains at Ubisoft, their case has been thoroughly reviewed by third parties and they have been either exonerated or taken appropriate disciplinary actions. “


With the supposed internal malaise that Schreier points out, we will have to pay attention to the development of this Assassin’s Creed Infinity (temporary name) confirmed by Ubisoft, but which remains a mystery beyond its ambitions. If you haven’t played it yet, this is the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla review .
