Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot discussed with investors the future of the Assassin’s Creed series. The company is currently focused on its second year of support for Valhalla, but will switch to Infinity in the future , which aims to increase the brand’s popularity. The novelty will remain “true to the narrative legacy of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.”
Assassin’s Creed Infinity is in a very early stage of development right now, Guillemot said , so the French publisher will share the details at an opportune time. The head of Ubisoft sees in the future game a logical development of the franchise, which, with the last two parts, has gone towards games-services with long-term support.
At the same time, Guillemot did not answer the question of whether Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be a replacement for the classic parts of the franchise.
For the first time the existence of Infinity spoke earlier this month after the publication of Jason Schreier. Two studios are responsible for the development: from Montreal (Origins, Valhalla) and Quebec (Odyssey).
The release of Assassin’s Creed Infinity will take place no earlier than the end of 2023.
