That being said, for those eagerly awaiting the next Assassin’s Creed title, following a Bloomberg leak, Ubisoft has since confirmed and announced the upcoming game, which will be known as Assassin’s Creed Infinity. The announcement did not specify when the game will be released or what to expect, but according to the leak, it will be a live service game.
This means that instead of Infinity being a single, single player-focused title, Ubisoft could take a Rockstar-like approach with GTA 5 when GTA Online was introduced. So, instead of a single type of game, Infinity is expected to offer multiple connected settings that will look and play differently and can be expanded over time.
This is what has helped keep the GTA franchise relevant all these years, even though GTA 5 is a pretty old title. According to Ubisoft, “Rather than keep passing the baton from game to game, we deeply believe this is an opportunity for one of Ubisoft’s most beloved franchises to evolve in a more integrated and collaborative way.
