Assassin’s Creed franchise executive producer Marc-Alexis Côté in a recent interview IGN told what to expect from future games in the series in terms of duration.
Recall that the Assassin’s Creed games began as relatively chamber action films for 15-20 hours, but with the addition of role-playing elements to the formula (see Origins from 2017), they have grown significantly in scale.
Nevertheless, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, announced as part of the September issue of Ubisoft Forward, will be a kind of return to basics and the duration of the main plot will be comparable to the first parts.
The upcoming Assassin’s Creed Infinity platform is designed to include a wide variety of Assassin’s Creeds in form and content, and not all of them will be equally large, Cote said.
“I think this approach with Infinity also allows us to release projects of different scale. Not every game has to be a 150 hour RPG, right?” Kote asks.
Kote added that the duration of the games will also determine their cost: $50, as in the case of Mirage, or more / less. Ubisoft also plans to delight gamers with free content like the Odyssey crossover in Valhalla.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage is expected to release in 2023, but Infinity will launch later: the platform includes at least the big Codename: Red in feudal Japan and the non-RPG enigmatic Codename: Hexe.
