Assassin’s Creed Infinity was officially confirmed recently, and it looks to be a unique direction for the franchise. Rather than being a traditional game, Infinity is going to be a hub platform that will eventually host all the titles in the Assassin’s Creed series. Here’s everything we know about Assassin’s Creed Infinity so far.

The Assassin’s Creed franchise has evolved a lot over the years, and the more recent titles have been a far cry from the original series. Starting with Origins the latest trilogy, which also includes Odyssey and Valhalla, has a big focus on RPG elements and an open-world structure compared to the linear, stealth-based gameplay of the earlier titles.

It’s clear that Ubisoft is not afraid to reinvent the wheel when it comes to its flagship franchise, and Infinity looks to bring something new for fans to experience once again. Infinity has been described as a hub platform through which players will be able to launch and play games from the AC catalog. The game’s executive producer, Marc-Alexis Côté also stated in an IGN interview that the game “is something that will evolve over time.”

Without further ado, here’s everything we know about Assassin’s Creed Infinity so far.

The platforms that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be on haven’t been confirmed yet but as it’s an extremely ambitious project that will support all future AC titles, it’s safe to assume it will be released on current-gen consoles including PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. 

Marc-Alexis Côté also alluded to Infinity potentially being next-gen only during his IGN interview, stating “We wanted to mark a change technologically and gameplay-wise as we’re moving to a fully next-gen – or current gen, I guess we call it – with the PS5 and the Xbox Series X.”

What games will be available through Assassin’s Creed Infinity?

The first titles that will be available on the launcher will be Assassin’s Creed Codename Red and Assassin’s Creed Codename Hexe.

Red is confirmed to be a Shinobi-inspired story that takes place in Feudal Japan, while Hexe is reported to be “set during the latter stages of the Holy Roman Empire and revolves around witch trials.” according to an official Bloomberg report.

Alongside Red and Hexe, two new mobile games were also announced during the Assassin’s Creed 15th anniversary celebrations back in September. The first is titled Codename Jade and will be an open-world experience, while the second is being worked on in collaboration with Netflix’s mobile-games division but no further details were given.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage – which is a story that “goes back to the roots of the franchise.” was also officially confirmed. Initially, Mirage had been given the working title of ‘Rift’ which was originally an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla DLC, but Ubisoft altered their release schedule to turn it into the main franchise entry.

While only Red and Hexe have been confirmed to launch on the Infinity platform, Ubisoft’s end goal is to eventually have every title in the franchise available via the hub.
