More details possibly leaked for Ubisoft's live-service Assassin's Creed hub.

In 2021, news about a new live-service project for Assassin's Creed was shared via Bloomberg. Ubisoft later confirmed that they are working on this new project and that it will be called Assassin's Creed Infinity. Back in 2021, it sure sounded like Infinity was going to be a new game, one full of "games as a service" style trappings.

Today, we know that Assassin's Creed Infinity is less a new game and more of a hub for upcoming full Assassin's Creed titles. However, unlike most game hubs, Infinity looks like it will feature live-service features complete with a heavy dose of FOMO or "fear of missing out." New information about Infinity comes to us from Insider Gaming.

Assassin's Creed Infinity will reportedly include a feature called The Exchange. The Exchange will be an item shop that offers users access to daily and weekly cosmetic items that can be used in upcoming Assassin's Creed titles such as Assassin's Creed Red. Insider Gaming offers an example of how there are in-game cosmetic items that can be purchased and used on Red's two protagonists, Naoe and Yasuke.

Infinity will also include a 'Synchronization' feature that "allows the player to access 'Projects' for each protagonist."

To explain them in their simplest form, Projects are mini ‘battle passes’ with a narrative behind them offering players the ability to earn cosmetic rewards. Projects will be added throughout Infinity constantly, focusing mainly on DLC and new game releases, or even as a means of sustaining player interest during a lack of any new content.
Infinity will still act as a main hub where you will be able to launch upcoming Assassin Creed titles from. The footage seen by Insider Gaming notes that a user was able to jump into Assassin's Creed Red from the Infinity hub "within just a few seconds" and that it allowed them to pick up playing the game right where they left off.

Further reporting from Insider Gaming says that Ubisoft's current plan is to release a new mainline Assassin's Creed game every two years. Filling that two-year gap between these games will be "smaller experiences." Assassin's Creed Red is expected to be out later in 2024. Assassin's Creed Invictus is apparently a multiplayer title and is slated for 2025. Assassin's Creed Hexe is said to be a "darker" (in terms of tone) title and is looking to be released in 2026.

Additional Assassin's Creed projects seem to include 'Obsidian' which will be a remake of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. There is 'Nebula' which will allegedly include locations set in India, the Aztec Empire, and Mediterranean. There is 'Raid' which seems to be a free-to-play four-player PvE co-op title. Then there is 'Echoes' which is yet another multiplayer title. Finally, there is also apparently another Assassin's Creed being remade beyond Black Flag.

All of these titles and projects are reportedly scheduled to be released "by the end of the decade."

Keep in mind that all of this should be considered a rumor as none of this has been publicly confirmed nor announced by Ubisoft yet. Also keep in mind that plans can and do change often when it comes to game development.
