The future of the Assassin’s Creed franchise has been revealed with the announcement of Assassin’s Creed Project Infinity, a video game platform that will host future Assassin’s Creed entries in a new centralized hub. It is a not a game, but is akin to a launcher like Steam, that has the appearance of an in-universe Animus interface.
The first of the Assassin’s Creed titles coming to the Infinity platform is Codename Red, set in feudal Japan. The player will take the role of a Shinobi. The second confirmed title headed for Infinity is Codename Hexe, set in the Holy Roman Empire during a time of witch trials.
An IGN interview has clarified that these games will still be available to purchase as boxed titles. However, on opening either Codename game, you will be met with the Infinity hub which will host the DNA strands of different Assassin’s Creed experiences. The platform itself will constantly be evolving. What exactly it will become in future is unclear, but it seems to have potential.
