Infinity will be a full-priced game Ubisoft has stated!
Announced earlier on in 2021, Assassin's Creed Infinity is perhaps one of the larger projects that Ubisoft has taken on in regards to the historic franchise that's been touted for creating historical eras throughout time.
However, they've retracted their earlier statements in regards to Infinity being free-to-play, as it now appears the game will run player's a full price.
Assassin's Creed Infinity won't be free-to-play
In partnership with both Ubisoft studios that have led development in the Assassin's Creed franchise in recent year's, they've noted that Infinity is going to be an online service game that will take us to different parts of history throughout it's cycle.
While this all seems good at first glance, Ubisoft has claimed back in May of 2021 that they want to move towards a free-to-play structure moving forward, similar to how Xbox Game Pass functions.
But, Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft's current CEO noted during an earning's call has reported by VGC that this won't apply to Assassin's Creed Infinity.
Yves was asked about Infinity and whether or not it'll be free-to-play and he noted how "It’s not going to be free to play and this game will have a lot of narrative elements in it."
As well, Guillemot also talked about some of the elements of the game with statements such as "It’s going to be a very innovative game but it will have what players already have in all the Assassin’s Creed games, all the elements that they love to get in them right from the start."
While it's an exciting concept to say the least, player's looking to dive into the game will seemly have to wait a bit longer and Frederick Duguet, CFO of Ubisoft has noted the game "is still at an early stage of development."
