Assassin’s Creed Infinity is reportedly the next iteration of the popular franchise to be released by Ubisoft.
The AC series has been a staple of the Ubisoft lineup since the first game was released on Playstation 3, and there has been an almost yearly release under the Assassin’s Creed banner since then.
Infinity is expected to be the next ‘mainline’ release in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and there have already been some major leaks ahead of the official release of the game.
Here’s everything we know so far about Assassin’s Creed Infinity, including the potential release date, location and setting of the game, leaks and more.
UPDATE 17th June 2022: Ubisoft has confirmed it will reveal ‘the future of Assassin’s Creed’ in September of this year, meaning it could see Assassin’s Creed: Infinity officially shown.
UPDATE 23rd March 2022: Notable insider Tom Henderson has reported more information on the game via XFire:
“Animus will reportedly play a huge role in this new “hub” for the Assassin’s Creed series. With it, players can be transported into any time setting they like, with additional settings and content to be added throughout the years to come.
Assassin’s Creed Infinity seems to have more questions than answers and the moment, with the title still being somewhat in early production.
“Ubisoft Montreal is still hiring for numerous “Online Services” positions and Ubisoft Quebec is currently hiring several key roles for the Assassin’s Creed brand, including a Project Lead Programmer and Associate Producer.”
There is not currently an official release date for Assassin’s Creed Infinity, but we will update this page as and when Ubisoft makes the announcement!
One major leak has already been released on Reddit, with a “Ubisoft employee” (although this has not been verified) making some massive claims about the new game.
One of the biggest revelations was that the game is being considered “free to play, but that business model is still being discussed.” The leaker also noted that a full retail price is still being considered, but Ubisoft are still working on how to monetise the game.
In terms of platforms, the leaker noted that it will be supported on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X and S consoles, PC via Ubisoft Connect, Google Stadia and Amazon Luna at launch.
It was also revealed that the game is going to have “both solo and cooperative play with a high level of player customization, moving towards a Destiny 2-like experience.”
Another massive part of the leak noted that there will apparently be multiple “Eras” with the game at launch, that will all have differing stories.
More content will be coming post-launch in the form of Seasons, with each season supposedly adding a new Era and questline.
Here are the eras that the leaker claimed would be coming:
- “Rome, 1502 – This is the first Era available to the player, and you play as one of the many Assassins recruited by Ezio during the events of AC: Brotherhood. This is where the tutorial takes place, as well as the first main questline.
- “Occupied France, 1943 – This Era introduces a new mechanic and a first for the series, that being fully-fledged firearms. The gunplay mechanics are largely being pulled from Watchdogs: Legion and tweaked to fit the rest of the game, though melee combat is still very much viable. The story of this section is centered around a group of Assassins working with the 2nd Armored Division to help liberate Paris and hunting down Axis officers and leaders with connections to the Templars.
- “China, 1634 – You and other assassins assist a local peasant rebellion during the Ming Dynasty. Not sure of the rest of the story here, as things are still pretty early in development. From what I understand, there are 2 more Eras to be available at launch, but they are yet to be determined.”
Ubisoft has not yet confirmed officially what the setting and location of Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be, although as the aforementioned leak states it may well be across several different eras including Rome 1502, Occupied France 1943 and China 1634.
