The future of the Assassin’s Creed series will be revealed by Ubisoft in September and there’s a lot we can expect from the series.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise has undergone a lot of changes over the past five years. For the nine mainline games from 2007’s Assassin’s Creed to 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, everything remains the same. While some new mechanics were introduced during the launch of these titles, and the story and characters changed between each installment, much of the game’s formula remained pretty much the same and many fans Grave started to get tired of the series. After a two-year hiatus, the franchise is back with Assassin’s Creed Origins, a complete remake of the series that brings new RPG elements and combat mechanics.
Since then, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has built on this new foundation, releasing two new installments in the same style, but for many people the AC series has also lost its stealthy classic element. . The future of the series is a bit murky at the moment, and we haven’t heard from Ubisoft about the next official plans for this long-running stealth action series. However, just a month ago, during the Assassin’s Creed 15th anniversary livestream, Ubisoft announced that the future of the Assassin’s Creed series would be revealed in September during another anniversary event. Right now, the fan community’s speculation about what could be revealed in September is heating up.
What can we expect from the upcoming September event?
Ubisoft’s September Assassin’s Creed event could yield some major revelations, all of which have implications for the entire series. The announcements will most likely include the reveal of a new game called Assassin’s Creed Rift. Currently, the only details about Assassin’s Creed Rift are just leaks or insider reports in the industry, so many gamers are still waiting for official information from Ubisoft.
According to leaks and reports, Assassin’s Creed Rift will be the next main game in the Assassin’s Creed series. Apparently the Rift was originally developed as an expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but the project has so much potential that it has since been brought up to full game development status. For the same reason, Assassin’s Creed Rift will also be a much smaller game than some previous AC titles, with a focus on stealth rather than open-world exploration. Assassin’s Creed Rift is supposed to follow Basim Ibn Ishaq, one of Valhalla’s central characters as he travels across the Middle East. While none of this has been officially confirmed yet, the game has been leaked a lot over the last year or so with a slew of sources corroborating each other’s reports.
While Assassin’s Creed Rift will be Ubisoft’s next main entry in the series and therefore will most likely be revealed at the September event, it’s possible that a few more titles will be announced as well. A game that has been leaked and reported as much as the Rift is Assassin’s Creed Infinity which could be fully revealed at the September event. According to the leak, Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be a long-running online game project. year, combining new releases together.
At the moment we still don’t know exactly what Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be. As reported by Bloomberg, it won’t be a full-fledged main game. Instead, Assassin’s Creed Infinity will act as a platform linking the different games together, with the gameplay and story constantly evolving, always with consistent updates like other online titles like Fortnite. or Apex Legends.
The potential for Assassin’s Creed Infinity is immense. New historical eras, new characters and new stories can be added to the series easily through this platform, and the sheer amount of content that can be added is enough to attract a slew of new fans. . On top of that, AC Infinity can be used as a testbed for new gameplay mechanics, giving fans a direct say on whether or not those mechanics are a good fit for the series. Assassin’s Creed Infinity has the potential to be one of the most unique online games out there, as long as Ubisoft realizes that potential and delivers on it.
One final potential announcement that could be at the September event of Assassin’s Creed is a remake of the first game. Just last month some observant gamers noticed that the footage of the first AC game used during the 15th anniversary live stream looked significantly better than the released title. This leads some to believe that Ubisoft will soon announce a remake or remaster of 2007’s Assassin’s Creed as a way to complete the 15th anniversary. While this is based on pure speculation and rumours, a remake or remaster of the first game would not be entirely impossible as Ubisoft has already remade other games in the series before.
Why is the September event of Assassin’s Creed so important?
This September event is pretty important for the entire Assassin’s Creed franchise. While Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has been a huge success for Ubisoft, the AC fan base is still a bit controversial about the current state of the series. While the series definitely needs a post-Syndicate makeover, some AC fans are still longing for Ubisoft to return to the classic stealthy Assassin’s Creed formula and not really catch up with RPG titles. new.
This September event is the perfect platform for Ubisoft to delight both new and long-time AC fans, making the franchise stronger than ever. While certainly difficult, this goal is not unattainable. By announcing Assassin’s Creed Rift, old fans of the series will likely return to the title as it is a stealthy, smaller-scale title like the first few AC games. Furthermore, if a remake or remaster of the first Assassin’s Creed game is announced, it will almost certainly be a welcome treat for old fans.
On the other hand, Assassin’s Creed Infinity has the potential to attract a lot of new fans, take the AC series in a bold new direction, and give gamers something never before seen in the series. Similarly, if Assassin’s Creed Infinity is in fact an online game and has new content constantly, it doesn’t matter if fans don’t like a certain style of AC play as the game will be updated soon. with something the community loves. This September’s Assassin’s Creed event could attract more gamers to the series than ever before, if Ubisoft knows how to execute its plans well.
