Ubisoft confirmed today that Assassin’s Creed Infinity it will not be a free-to-play game. Assumptions about the game being free to play surfaced after the company said it planned to release free titles from all of its major franchises.
Today, in its financial report, the producer confirmed that the game will be paid for. “[Assassin’s Creed Infinity] it will not be free to play and the game will have many narrative elements,” said CEO Yves Guillemot.
According to Guillemot, the next AC it will be innovative and at the same time familiar to players, bringing features from other games in the series. He further states that AC Infinity “It’s going to be a huge game with a lot of elements that already exist in games we’ve published in the past.”
The title, which will be a collaboration between Ubisoft Quebec studios, responsible for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Ubisoft Montreal, from AC Origins e Valhalla, it should still take time to arrive. According to Frédérick Duguet, Ubi’s financial director, Infinity it is still in the early stages of development. Earlier in July this year, Duguet stated that AC Infinity is an ambitious project that will remain “faithful to the series’ legacy of rich narrative experiences”.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be an online game whose plot will unfold over several historical periods. The title must have a game-as-a-service format, inspired by GTA Online e Fortnite, with news and expansions being released regularly.
There is still no release forecast or platforms for which AC Infinity It will be released.
