Ubisoft has been retroactively adding 60fps support to Assassin’s Creed titles, which included Assassin’s Creed Odyssey when playing the title on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S through backward compatibility. Ubisoft is reportedly working on a smaller-scale stealth-focused Asassin’s Creed title, more in line with their earliest entries.
The title will include Basim from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and was reportedly meant to be an expansion for Valhalla before it was shifted to a full-fledged standalone title, according to Bloomberg. The project is Codenamed Rift and will be much smaller in scope meaning no large open-world RPG, and will be less like its recent counterparts.
Rift is rumoured to release before the officially announced Assassin’s Creed Infinity which comes as a collaboration between Ubisoft Quebec (Odyssey), and Ubisoft Montreal (Origins, Valhalla). Infinity will reportedly be a massive online title that will be set across multiple historical times.
