It seems like Ubisoft has taken a bit too much inspiration from the likes of Fortnite and GTA V. After Hyper Scape's colossal failure to make any meaningful impact on the Battle Royale genre, Ubisoft is looking at one of its most revered titles to make yet another foray into the online gaming space. The project is called Assassin's Creed Infinity, and it involves turning the franchise into an online game service.

Ubisoft's official blog post states that Assassin's Creed Infinity will be a joint effort between its Montreal and Quebec studios. Usually, both studios take turns developing Assassin's Creed games, and this will be the first time both have worked together on a title. It will feature elements from several Assassin's Creed games in what we assume will be a constantly evolving map. We can expect to see some exciting crossovers between different Assassin's Creed protagonists/antagonists.

While Ubisoft hasn't officially confirmed it, we can reasonably assume that Assassin's Creed Infinity will be locked behind a monthly subscription. After all, it is a game service; but there is a chance that it could be sold as a stand-alone title. The company could also take the free-to-play route and fund development with in-app purchases, but that seems somewhat unlikely.

Ubisoft wants to 'keep up with times' and the 'ever-evolving games industry', and that's why it decided to bring Assassin's Creed online. The franchise has a rich history of in-game lore, making it easy to double up as a full-fledged online RPG. One can only hope that Ubisoft strikes a balance between historical and current-day events in Assassin's Creed Infinity. The latter was integral to the initial games' success but has been increasingly neglected in recent releases.
