Assassin’s Creed, a well-known game that has sold well for many years, may be approaching a turning point in the series’ development. During an earlier 15th anniversary event, Ubisoft revealed that it will hold a special event in September to reveal “The Future of Assassin’s Creed.” Although the official has not shared any details for the time being, we can roughly speculate some directions based on rumors and some official announcements.
The first is Assassin’s Creed: Infinite, which was confirmed by Ubisoft last summer. Officials hope that through “Infinite”, players can experience the “Assassin’s Creed” universe in a “more unified way”, and according to previous reports from Bloomberg, “Infinite” may be similar in concept to “GTA Online”, which will incorporate multiple historical lines. , allowing you and other players to experience “multiple historical periods” that have evolved over time.
At the same time, Ubisoft is said to be working on a new game code-named “Rift”. It appears to be based on the content of the Assassin’s Creed: Viking Age DLC and will feature the Viking Age character Basim Ibn Ishaq, set in Baghdad. Its gameplay will be dominated by stealth, but it is not a “large open world game”. The release date could be this year or next year, but it will arrive earlier than Infinite. In fact, there is a saying that the meaning of “Rift” is actually to fill the gap before “Infinite” debuted. Among these two projects, it is obvious that “Infinite” is more likely to represent the “future”.
