Ubisoft Confirms Multiplayer Assassin’s Creed Codenamed ‘Invictus’ | Xbox One

We were talking to you earlier about symbolic threshold of 20 million players achieved by Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Despite the success of the RPG turn taken by the license, Ubisoft presented very varied projects for the continuation of the Assassin’s Creed saga with Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Assassin’s Creed: Codename Red, Assassin’s Creed: Codename Jade or Assassin’s Creed Infinitybut it is another project that is being discussed today by Ubisoft.

Multiplayer will make a comeback with Assassin’s Creed project “Invictus”

Although Assassin’s Creed and a deep multiplayer experience may seem like opposites, it hasn’t always been the case. Indeed, Ubisoft has offered highly successful PvP multiplayer modes in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Assassin’s Creed 3 and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. The gameplay of these multiplayer modes was truly unique by perfectly integrating the essence of Assassin’s Creed games with PvP mechanics.

Assassin’s Creed Unity offered a cooperative multiplayer mode which had many advantages and offered for the first time the possibility of exploring a universe of the Assassin’s Creed saga for up to 4 players.

Subsequently, Ubisoft definitely put multiplayer modes aside to focus on more single-player games and an RPG-like formula. The only exchanges between the players of the community are neither more nor less than the photos taken and shared by the players in their respective games or the sharing of Jomsvikings outfits in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Those nostalgic for Assassin’s Creed multiplayer modes can rest assured, Ubisoft has just confirmed the return of multiplayer in the saga through the last report published, that of the first half of 2022-2023. We discover a small retrospective of the results of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but also parts related to the future of the license.

“At the heart of the project, Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be a gateway for all Assassin’s Creed experiences where the metastory will live asynchronously. This project will allow us to connect the games with a common and more cohesive narrative thread that will reward players for their involvement in universe, which will drive engagement, while providing greater ease of discovery of the content we create. Additionally, a team, including veterans of For Honor is currently working to bring multiplayer back to Assassin’s Creed with an experience standalone via Infinity, codenamed Invictus.”

Ubisoft therefore confirms to us that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be a “gateway” between all the experiences of the Assassin’s Creed license that are currently being developed, but also that multiplayer will be part of these experiences through a project currently called Assassin’s Creed “Invictus”.

We already know that it is veterans of For Honor who are working on the return of multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed. It remains to be seen if this means that this multiplayer formula would be closer to the “classic” fights of For Honor and Valhalla or if PvP modes close to what there was in Brotherhood and Revelations would make their return.
