Soon after rumors about the next “Assassin’s Creed” game began to circulate on the Internet, Ubisoft announced that the franchise will indeed be on the road to real-time service games, providing continuous support for players through new content and regular updates.
Ubisoft released a written announcement This confirmed the previous live broadcast service rumors. Nathalie Bouchard, Managing Director of Ubisoft Montreal, and Christophe Derennes of Ubisoft Quebec shared their thoughts on “Assassin’s Creed“Franchise rights and some things players can look forward to in the future.
The new project code-named “Assassin’s Creed Unlimited” will involve Ubisoft’s Quebec and Montreal studios and will be led by Marc-Alexis Côté, who was the long-term developer of the early games in the series. At the same time, Julian Laferrière of Ubisoft Montreal will serve as the senior producer.
Experienced Ubisoft developers, including veterans of previous games such as “Split Cell” and “Watch Dogs”, will work on this new “Assassin’s Creed” project.
“Instead of continuing to pass the baton between games, we are convinced that this is an opportunity for Ubisoft’s most popular franchise to develop in a more integrated and collaborative manner, no longer centered on the studio, and more focused on talent and leadership. ,” Bouchard and Derennes said.
The “Assassin’s Creed” series is known for its story-driven campaigns, with open-ended progress and exploration. How Ubisoft will combine this type of gameplay with a real-time service model is currently unclear, but this will not be the first time this approach has been adopted.
MMORPG usually uses expansion packs as part of its real-time services, releasing a large number of story-related tasks to further promote the development of the game’s plot. However, most of the MMO’s longevity comes from side events such as dungeons, raids, and other similar events that provide meaningful rewards. The complete live broadcast service model of Assassin’s Creed is likely to provide players with a similar game loop.
So far, little is known about the content of “Assassin’s Creed Unlimited”, but Ubisoft is likely to make some records of the current performance of “Assassin’s Creed Valhalla” as a quasi real-time service game.
