As if Assassin’s Creed games weren’t already a bottomless pit to make, Ubisoft literally wants to make an endless entry into the series.
According to a new report from Assassin & # 39; s Creed Infinity, the game with the right code will be a live service game that will evolve and expand over time. Bloomberg. Instead of being an isolated look at a historical period, Infinity seeks to bring together different scenarios along with space to expand and develop each one after launch. Bloomberg says Ubisoft has been inspired by the longevity of games like Fortnite and Grand Theft Auto 5, which continue to make Epic Games and Rockstar have a stupid amount of money.
Although Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec alternate to develop each iteration of Assassin's Creed, Infinity will be a joint effort between the two divisions, with Marc-Alexis Côté in Quebec in charge of generality. Each studio will still have its own creative director, with Jonathan Dumont leading the role of Ubisoft Quebec and Clint Hocking of Ubisoft Montreal. Bloomberg speculates that the occasionally bitter rivalry between the two studios may see future bumps in the road.

Following the report, Ubisoft released an independent blog post confirming that the game is in development, along with providing some additional context. The study echoed Bloomberg's report that the game is still in the early stages of development and delved into the decision to combine the efforts of Quebec and Montreal.
"Instead of continuing to take over from game to game, we deeply believe that this is an opportunity for one of Ubisoft's most beloved franchises to evolve in a more integrated and collaborative, less studies and more focused on talent and leadership, no matter where they are at Ubisoft. "
Something that Ubisoft does not recognize in its place is the fact that the reorganization continues to leave in charge many of the people accused of harassment last year. "Several men accused of abuse continue to hold key positions after this reorganization, which led to complaints in internal forums," the journalist reported. Jason Schreier tweeted. An Ubisoft spokeswoman says "a third party rigorously reviewed their case and they were acquitted or subjected to appropriate disciplinary action."
Although Ubisoft has repeatedly insisted that everything is fine now, no one is really convinced. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said earlier this year that the company had created a "clearer, more comprehensive and more actionable" code of conduct to help report harassment. and abuse. But with employees still saying nothing has changed in the last year and Schreier's latest claims, Ubisoft has not yet run out of hot water.
