Assassin’s Creed Infinity Details Leak Revealing Future Plans and Live Service Elements

Ubisoft is currently building its ambitious new Assassin’s Creed Infinity platform which the company will use to link all future Assassin’s Creed games together to form a live-service experience for players. The project was first announced back in 2022 but up to now, we haven’t heard anything much about it.

Essentially, Assassin’s Creed Infinity was revealed as a hub for all things Assassin’s Creed. It will house all the games under one roof and players will launch them as if they are exploring the Animus themselves. New details now claim that Infinity will be an ever-changing platform too as Ubisoft evolves and adds to the games on the platform.

According to a new report, Ubisoft will allow players to boot up future Assassin’s Creed games without leaving this Infinity launcher. For example, players can load up Infinity and catch up with daily news, bounties and other live content. They can then instantly load into Assassin’s Creed Red and play the game.

It is important to note that Infinity is expected to have its own story too. The whole idea is that this Animus-like platform ties into the real-world story of the series and players are exploring genetic memories as Desmond once did. As the experience evolves, these memories are “unlocked” for them to play through.

Ubisoft plans to release Assassin’s Creed Infinity alongside this year’s Assassin’s Creed Red game. The game will then be supported with additional chapters added to Infinity after launch. It stars the protagonists Naoe and Yasuke. The company is then reportedly working on Invictus, a multiplayer game planned for next year.

Assassin’s Creed Hexe, which was teased at the original Infinity reveal, is then set to launch in 2026. This game is described as the “darkest Assassin’s Creed game ever” and stars a female protagonist named Elsa.

All three of these games will be released with a robust post-launch content plan which ties into Infinity. A so-called ‘Synchronisation’ system built into the launcher will let players access “Projects” for each of the game’s protagonists.

These projects are described as “mini battle passes” with a narrative undertone. Players will get Projects which they will have to complete in the set game with the set protagonist. These will add new story content to the experience and ultimately, cosmetics and other items. Ubisoft will use these Projects as a means to expand Infinity with DLC and keep players busy during the in-between releases.

There’s also an in-game store called The Exchange. Players can visit this store to unlock cosmetics for all the games under Infinity.

By the sound of things, Assassin’s Creed Infinity might start off a bit slow but Ubisoft plans on growing it into its own platform. It sounds exciting. Just a pity it won’t support older games and we’ll have to wait until 2026 to see this vision fully come to life.
