After it was announced in July that the next entry in Ubisoft’s mammoth franchise, Assassin’s Creed Infinity, would be a live service platform that evolves over time as a collaboration between a number of its studios, many were quick to wonder if that also meant the game might take on a free-to-play model. This is especially true after Ubisoft had made comments earlier in the year that it planned to launch “high-end free-to-play” games moving forward.
As reported by Gamespot, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that the title will continue to be a premium product offering, stating “It’s not going to be a free-to-play game.”
“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.”
The game is reportedly still quite early in development, so don’t expect to see it any time soon – plus, Ubisoft still has plans to release a ton of content for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in the coming months.
