Assassin’s Creed Infinity Will Reportedly Push Live Services with AC Red; AC Hexe Drops 2026

Since being announced back in 2021, there have been a lot of questions about what Assassin’s Creed Infinity would even be. We’ve known Infinity would be a hub of sorts that connects other Assassin’s Creed experiences and includes online elements, but beyond that, things have remained sketchy. Well, we now have some more details from insider Tom Henderson, who has a very good track record when it comes to all things Ubisoft. According to Henderson, he’s laid eyes on demo footage of Assassin’s Creed Infinity, and, surprise surprise, it sounds like it will be a heavily live-service-focused product.

As we’ve heard before, Assassin’s Creed Infinity will act as a hub, through which you’ll launch other AC games and experiences. According to Henderson, games should launch quickly from Infinity with only a few seconds of loading. But what will players actually do in Infinity itself? Well, apparently, there will be a store, “The Exchange,” where you can buy cosmetics, and you’ll also be able to access “Projects,” which will be regularly-added battle passes you can earn further items from.

In other words, it sounds like Ubisoft is taking the live service stuff that infiltrates all their games, and separating it into its own thing, which… doesn’t sound that bad? It potentially sounds like it could make life easier for those who just want to play new Assassin’s Creed games and ignore the GaaS extras, but we’ll have to see how it’s actually implemented.

So when will Assassin’s Creed Infinity arrive? Per Henderson, it will launch alongside the Japanese-themed Assassin’s Creed Codename Red, which is set to arrive either late 2024 or the first quarter of 2025. Ubisoft apparently plans to deliver a big AC title every two years, with smaller projects in the years in between – looking head, the multiplayer Assassin’s Creed Invictus is said to be coming in 2025, and the dark witchcraft-themed Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe from Ubisoft Montreal is slated for 2026. Beyond that, other projects include an Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag remake, Assassin’s Creed Codename Nebula (another core entry set in multiple locations), another AC remake, AC Raid (a co-op multiplayer game), and more. Of course, as always with rumors, take this with a grain of salt, but as mentioned, Henderson has had the goods on Ubisoft many times in the past.

What do you think about the rumored future of Assassin’s Creed? Does Assassin’s Creed Infinity sound like it could a positive development for the franchise or is it a waste of effort?
