I’m sorry if the front page of Kotaku reads like an advertisement for Ubisoft right now, but do you want to know the wildest thing about it? That’s not even all that the French company recently announced in the world Assassin’s Creed during the big Ubisoft Forward event. Have a lot of Assassin’s CreedUbisoft held a full showcase for the open-world series today.
Of course, we knew it was coming. And Ubisoft has always been a company with many Assassin’s Creed iron in the fire. But on the other hand, there’s a reason why this is the first year that mass exclusivity is needed. Let’s take a look at it, shall we?
Apart from the final ending Assassin’s Creed Valhalla with free content updates ending the story, Ubisoft is making an attackCreed is set in Japan, Technically, this is the main entry of the hot-selling series after fans begged for that setup for a long time. But the company also really hyped “back to basics” Assassin’s Creed Mirage, was established 20 years ago Valhalla. And don’t forget, Valhalla just got a new mode not long ago. Valhalla has been steadily updated during this time.
I point this out because I want to emphasize that what Ubisoft revealed today does not equate to what the company has finally offered to fans after a dry spell, although technically, it’s been a few years since the last major import. There is no new Assassin’s Creed last year, but the machine never stopped. In fact, Ubisoft claims that 2021 is one of the best years ever for the franchise, based on revenue.
Okay. That’s the big thing that would have been rumored if not leaked for a long time. We also have a Mystery mobile game from Netflix, apparently to celebrate the final release of the live-action series, but it’s not the only mobile game in development right now. Not long after Tencent acquires larger stake in Ubisoftwe get a notification about something with a codename Assassin’s Creed JADE, a “three A” game set in ancient China geared towards mobile devices.
But wait, there’s more! While we only got a short teaser for it, Ubisoft is working on something it’s giving the codename Assassin’s Creed HEXE, which appears to be a witchy twist on the stabby franchise.
Did you think we were done? My sweet summer child. No. Some guy at Axios is report that we will also receive Assassin’s Creed Invictusa player-centric entry that will be supported by developers who have worked on games like Rainbow 6 Siege and For the sake of honor. For the sake of sanity, I will ignore all news related to merchandise and programs. But know that everything I just entered isn’t all, technically speaking.
No wonder Ubisoft also announced Assassin’s Creed Infinitya center both represent our destinies in an ever-expanding historical sequence, but more realistically, will tie this vast web of games together. By some way. Ubisoft made Infinity sounds confusing, even though we know it will act as a launcher and Infinity will also contain elements of a larger, modern plot that ties the lore together. We also know that Assassin’s Creed Red will be part of Infinity somehow it makes sense: Even if people have doubts about downloading another thingthey will probably do so for a high profile game like this.
It’s all very ambitious, and I’m sure there’s something here for all your cravings, with a lot of things in development, not all of which are going to be big drags. hundreds of hours long. But damn, still nothing happened and I was a bit overwhelmed and tired. Assassin’s Creed It’s not a franchise anymore, it’s an industry.
Now you might be wondering how Ubisoft is doing all of this amid a larger number of its global development studios, some of which are looking to merge. While the staff say that Ubisoft has introduced things like an abuse reporting system, a necessary addition follows a famous developer on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was fired for “misbehavior”, the group remains critical of how the company has, in their view, mishandling more recent reports of “abuses”. However, in a recent interview, Marc-Alexis Côté, Ubisoft’s executive producer, emphasizing that the company is being more proactive. “We intervene much earlier when there are any situations that could lead us down the path of harassment,” says Côté.
All the while, Ubisoft has worked hard to give studios more development time to help deliver the dizzying number of games announced today.
