According to details posted by YouTuber j0nathan, some of which were corroborated by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, the game will take the series “back to basics” when it releases next year.
Bloomberg first reported in February that Ubisoft was planning to release a smaller-scale, stealth-focused Assassin’s Creed game that is closer to the early series entries than the more recent RPG-influenced ones.
Starring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla character Basim, the title was originally planned as an expansion for the most recent series entry before being spun into a standalone game last year, it claimed.
Codenamed Rift, the game is reportedly set in the Middle East, including Baghdad, with development being led by Ubisoft’s Bordeaux studio.
Most recently Bloomberg reported that the game would be released in spring 2023.
While previous series entries have taken place in specific historical periods, Infinity will reportedly be a platform for future Assassin’s Creed games containing multiple settings that can be expanded over time.
It was recently claimed that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will include a game with an Asian setting, possibly Japan.
Ubisoft has said it plans to “unveil the future of Assassin’s Creed” in September, when it’s set to hold a multi-game showcase.
