Jason Schreier, a renowned journalist for the Bloomberg web portal, publishes that a future installment of Assassin’s Creed will aim to “create an online platform that evolves over time.” With code name Assassin’s Creed Infinity, a Ubisoft spokeswoman has confirmed the existence of the project, although she did not want to go into details.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity is real, according to a Ubisoft spokeswoman
The spokeswoman stated that Ubisoft intends “Exceed the expectations of those fans who have asked for a more cohesive approach” of the franchise. For this, the French company will make changes in the organization of the development studies. The teams from Ubisoft Montreal and Quebec will unite to collaborate on Infinity.
So far both studios had alternated the leadership of the latest installments. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey was spearheaded by Ubisoft Quebec, while Ubisoft Montreal did the same with Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Now, the two teams will work in unison on Infinity, and each of them will have its own creative director. Of course, Schreier affirms that Quebec will finally be the one that takes the reins of the saga.

Again, the Ubisoft spokesperson alludes to the fact that this modification of the structure has been designed so that the franchise “evolve in a more integrated and collaborative way, less focused on studies and more focused on talent and leadership, regardless of their location within Ubisoft. “
The data on Assassin’s Creed Infinity shared by Schreier is based on the idea of creating a service game that encompasses multiple scenarios, content that will “expand” as the months go by. This platform “will be inspired” by massive hits like Fortnite and Grand Theft Auto: Online (integrated in the fifth installment). Finally, the journalist reveals that the game is “years” away. Therefore, it does not mean that this Infinity is the next natural delivery.
