More details on upcoming Assassin's Creed games have emerged.
Fans of Ubisoft's flagship franchise have quite a lot to look forward to.
Ubisoft's Marc-Alexis Côté also hints at the "possibility of crossing over characters from different periods" to bridge the various titles.
Those who love "immersing themselves in the past" can jump in "and never be interrupted or need to know who Desmond and Layla are."
The in-development standalone multiplayer title will be "more approachable" and "more mass market" that the series' previous multiplayer offerings.
Ubisoft also confirms that Codename HEXE is "a bit further out" than the upcoming Codename RED, though the two will eventually "live concurrently."
"It is still the same games that we were building, but bridged together in the Infinity hub," says project leader Marc-Alexis Côté.
Ubisoft also confirmed that Assassin's Creed Infinity is a hub that will connect all of the different experiences, including Red and Hexe.
Project Red, which is allegedly the game's Japanese setting, will see players stepping into the shoes of a ninja.
A new report claims that an Asian country will be one of the settings included in upcoming live service platform Assassin's Creed Infinity.
According to journalist Jeff Grubb, one of the settings included in live service title Assassin's Creed Infinity will be the long-demanded Japan.
Journalist Jason Schreier has said that neither the rumoured Assassin's Creed Rift nor Assassin's Creed Infinity have an Aztec setting.
Reports of private equity firms like Blackstone Inc. and KKR & Co. having "preliminary takeover interest" in Ubisoft are also circulating.
New report also claims that the upcoming live service-focused Assassin's Creed Infinity will see the Animus acting as a hub for various locations and time periods.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot also says the game "will have a lot of narrative elements in it", as well as "lots of elements that already exist" in previous Assassin's Creed games.
The live service title could also "remake and retell" the stories of older Assassin's Creed titles while providing a new, paid story overtime.
Ubisoft says it is "committed to staying true to the DNA" of Assassin's Creed with the upcoming live service ongoing platform model of Infinity.
Recent reports indicate that Ubisoft's flagship open world series is in line for a major reinvention in the coming years- but is that a smart move?
The live-service online title is being looked at as an "evolving hub for all things Assassin's Creed." It may even be "Helix/Abstergo related."
The live service title is in development right now, with Ubisoft's Quebec and Montreal studios collaborating in what will become a long-term platform for the series.
