Assassin's Creed: Infinity Will Reportedly Explore Feudal Japan

While celebrating 15th anniversary of Assassin's Creed franchise this year, French video game developer/publisher Ubisoft added a few classic titles to all-new PlayStation Plus and launches next-gen upgrade for Assassin's Creed Origins.

According to a previous Bloomberg report, Ubisoft is planning next Assassin's Creed project to be a live-service game titled, Infinity. A latest report suggests that Assassin's Creed: Infinity will probably head over to a Feudal Japan settings.

In recent episode of Jeff Grubb's Game Mess, industry insider Jeff Grubb claims that Assassin's Creed: Infinity will visit Feudal Japan. It will feature role-playing gameplay mechanics similar to Assassin's Creed Origins, Odyssey and Valhalla.

Along with fellow insider Mike Minotti, he also talked about upcoming Assassin's Creed: Rift, a game set in Jerusalem. Though a prior report by Jason Schreier reveals that Rift will take place in Baghdad, it may expand to Middle East area.

Ubisoft usually explores a distinct historic location for each Assassin's Creed game as they plan to feature a few different time periods in their next live-service AC game and therefore, letting fans discover Feudal Japan may be a great idea.

Assassin's Creed fans have been requesting for a game set in Feudal Japan-era for many years but Ubisoft didn't do that yet, even though its melee combat and stealth-based gameplay can be a great fit for a world of ninjas and samurais.
