Assassin's Creed Infinity Won't Be a Free-to-Play Game

Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed Infinity, the upcoming live-service game in the open world action series, won't be free-to-play.

The news came during Ubisoft's most recent earnings call (as spotted by Gamespot) with CEO Yves Guillemot going into slightly more detail about what to expect from the mysterious title.

“It's not going to be a free-to-play [game],” Guillemot confirmed. “This game is going to have a lot of narrative elements in it. It's going to be very innovative game, but it will have what players already have in all the other Assassin's Creed games, all the elements that they love... right from the start. So it's going to be a huge game. But with lots of elements that already exist in the games that we published in the past.”

Assassin's Creed Infinity is apparently still in the early stages of development, with an earlier report suggesting that the game could release in 2024. It is being developed as a joint project between Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec, with Ubisoft “committed to staying true to the DNA of Assassin's Creed”.

  • It will just be monetized like one
  • Co-op
  • I hope Infinity will have missions similar to those in the Desmond trilogy. Those really emphasizes assassinations and infiltration unseen, which I like.
  • So I see a base game with LOTS of paid extension for each "era".
    Gonna be dissappointed...
  • Don’t care Ubisoft can stick this and there other games up the ass.
