What will the next Assassin’s Creed games be after Valhalla?  

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has impressed the gaming community all over the world with its impressive storyline, gameplay, and frequent DLCs. However, it’s been a couple of years since the latest Assassin’s Creed game, and gamers want a new one to explore a brand-new world. 

Ubisoft is developing two brand-new Assasin’s Creed games and could release them later this year or sometime during 2023. There are several rumors that the games are named ‘Assassin’s Creed Infinity’ and ‘Assassin’s Creed Rift’ respectively.  

In this article, we’ll go through everything you need to know about Assassin’s Creed Infinity and Rift and discuss the future of Ubisoft’s franchise.

Assassin’s Creed Infinity is rumored to have multiple games in one package service. In other words, the game will feature several new areas and historical places that’ll evolve as time passes.  

Each stage might have different mechanics and settings, giving players the potential to play each level differently. Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Quebec will develop Infinity. Montreal, in particular, has worked on several Assassin’s Creed games like II, III, Origins, and Valhalla. 

2. Will Assassin’s Creed Infinity be free to play?

Ubisoft hasn’t mentioned too much about Infinity but has confirmed that the game won’t be free-to-play. In an interview, CEO Yves Guillemot said that players have to purchase the game, and Infinity will have several narrative elements.  

Therefore, Infinity will probably be a full-priced game and get more content through DLC and expansion packs after it releases. There’s also the possibility that the game won’t come out on older consoles like PS4, Xbox, and Switch. Instead, you can play it on PS5, Xbox Series X or S, and PC.  

3. Will Assassin’s Creed Infinity have a multiplayer mode?

Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed if Assassin’s Creed Infinity will feature multiplayer modes, but it’s certainly possible as the franchise has tried it out in two different ways before, receiving great success.  

The video game series released its first competitive online multiplayer mode in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and reiterated it in III, IV: Black Flag, and Revelations. In this mode, you had to complete objectives or assassinate other players in the lobby while pretending to be an NPC and avoid getting taken down.  

On the other hand, Assassin’s Creed Unity had a cooperative multiplayer mode where you could team up with three friends to complete challenging assassination missions or raids. You needed to work together to complete the task as quickly as possible while being sneaky.  

Players would receive new weapons and armors pieces, which you could use in single-player and multiplayer modes as rewards for completing these missions. These modes were quite popular and could potentially make a return. 

Regardless, rumors suggest players will get their hands on Assassin’s Creed Rift first instead of Assassin’s Creed Infinity.  

4. What is Assassin’s Creed Rift?

According to Bloomberg, the latest Assassin’s Creed game scheduled to release in 2023 is code-named Rift. The game was originally planned to be an expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but Ubisoft has decided to make it a separate game.  

Ubisoft hasn’t commented on this speculation by saying they’d do a disservice to their development teams and community. However, they’ve added they got an exciting line of titles under their belts, with unexpected story twists and features.  

5. What’s the story behind Assassin’s Creed Rift?

Assassin’s Creed Rift is based on Basim, an assassin who players might recognize from Valhalla. The game is said to be smaller compared to previous Assassin’s Creed releases.  

The game won’t be a massive open-world role-playing game like previous franchise iterations. It’ll mainly focus on better gameplay mechanics to entertain fans until Infinity is released.  

6. Will Assassin’s Creed games go back to normal?

The recent Assassin’s Creed games like Valhalla focus on exploration instead of the traditional assassinations and stealth. However, according to rumors, the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game will go back to its roots by focusing on stealth gameplay.  

It’s an exciting time for Assassin’s Creed fans as Ubisoft is looking to focus on developing more games. They might take some time to launch, but the games will probably be of better quality compared to the yearly releases previously.
