As detailed in Ubisoft’s latest earnings report “Additionally, a team, including For Honor veterans, is currently working on bringing back multiplayer to Assassin’s Creed with a standalone experience through Infinity under the project codename Invictus”.
This standalone multiplayer title will be a part of the Assassin’s Creed Infinity Hub, taking the hub to now three titles. Red, Hexe, and Invictus.
As described by Ubisoft, “Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be a gateway for all Assassin’s Creed experiences where the metastory will live asynchronously.” – Which begs the question why is the publisher so reluctant on announcing Nexus?
“This project will allow us to link games with a common and more coherent narrative thread that will reward players for their involvement in the universe, driving engagement, while at the same time providing more discoverability for the content we create”, it was said.
Details on Invictus are still slim and Insider Gaming understands that the game is likely still several years away.
If Invictus follows a similar trend to Nexus though, it could create a unique multiplayer title that spans multiple games and settings.
The announcement of Invictus now brings the total amount of Assassin’s Creed titles in official development to five, with Nexus being the sixth.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage (Baghdad setting)
Assassin’s Creed Project Red (Japan setting)
Assassin’s Creed Project Hexe (Central Europe setting)
