Ubisoft is reportedly working on a live service Assassin’s Creed game, codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity, that aims to compete with the likes of GTA V or Fortnite.

The report comes from Jason Schreier at Bloomberg, who after speaking with multiple developers at Ubisoft claims that the game will “contain multiple settings with room to expand to others in the months and years following its debut.” That sounds like a live-service game alright. The game is said to be “years away” from release, so don’t expect Ubisoft to announce it any time soon.

Previously, Ubisoft’s Lionel Raynaud, executive VP of creative, had insinuated that future Assassin’s Creed game could in theory be updated post-launch with multiple different settings and time periods. “We all see a future where a game will stay {post-launch], and new experiences will come in the games,” he said.

“But we will have technology that will break the current limits of memory, for instance, because of new technologies that are arriving. We would be able to – in the same world – have several historical periods, for instance, in Assassin’s Creed, and use the Animus to travel from one to the other. Or have different areas of the world linked by travel systems, so that a Far Cry game or a Watch Dogs game could happen in different countries in the same experience, seamlessly.”

Reportedly, Ubisoft wants the game to “exceed the expectations of fans who have been asking for a more cohesive approach” to the series. This seems quite contrary to what the franchise’s core fans have been asking from the series, that is to have a more cohesive narrative and not stray further from its tenet founded in the original games.

The report also goes on to mention how Ubisoft has merged the two lead teams on the franchise, Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec. A part of this reorganization effort is also to remove the stigma of allegations that the studio faced in light of the #MeToo movement, where multiple high-level employees were outed as having engaged in workplace harassment. As for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, it seems like Ubisoft Quebec will be leading the charge of the franchise.

IGN India has reached out to Ubisoft for comment and will update the article if any official word is received.

Ubisoft’s last game in its signature franchise, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, broke several sales records and has slowly transformed into a lite live-service, being supported with multiple updates post-launch. It will also be the first game in the series to get post-launch content well into its second year. Perhaps Ubisoft is testing the waters for how a live-service Assassin’s Creed title might be received with the barrage of support Valhalla and Odyssey have gotten post-launch.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The game’s first expansion, Wrath of the Druids, is out now and a second expansion, The Siege of Paris, is releasing later this year. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will also receive at least one other expansion sometime in early 2022.
