Ubisoft confirms that Assassin’s Creed Invictus is officially in development and that it is being created by a team that includes For Honor veterans. Invictus is the codename for the standalone multiplayer Assassin’s Creed game which was revealed at the franchise’s Ubisoft Forward showcase back in September alongside some other big projects such as Assassin’s Creed Red, Jade, and Hexe, which are reported to be new single-player titles. So far, information on Invictus has remained mostly sparse, but this hasn’t stopped fans from getting excited about the prospect of it.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Multiplayer might not be the first thing Assassin’s Creed fans think of when the franchise pops into their heads, but it has a history with the series, being a popular game mode for players, especially in Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Brotherhood. When it first appeared in the series, multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed would give fans access to one of a few characters, and in different game modes, they usually had to hunt down another player as a target while trying to evade assassination themselves.

Despite Ubisoft essentially shutting down multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed earlier this year, it seems the company is interested in reviving the idea, as shown in its recent financial earnings report. Through this report, it was made clear that Assassin’s Creed Invictus will be a standalone multiplayer title, and the development team includes multiplayer veterans who previously worked on For Honor. Also, it was revealed that Invictus will be accessed through Assassin’s Creed Infinity, Ubisoft’s new platform for launching titles in the series.

It wasn’t revealed in the earnings report what stage of development Assassin’s Creed Invictus is in, but considering work on it has just been officially confirmed by Ubisoft with these new details, it’s unlikely fans will be getting the title anytime soon. The fact that Invictus is in development means the total amount of Assassin’s Creed titles being worked on has been bumped up to five. Four of these games, including Assassin’s Creed Red which finally brings the series to feudal Japan, will be a part of Infinity.

An interesting detail about Assassin’s Creed Invictus is the fact that For Honor developers are working on it. This means that the gameplay of the old Assassin’s Creed multiplayer mode could be swapped out for a better focus on melee combat. This may disappoint some fans who preferred the stealthier approach, but for those who want a return to the franchise’s past, its latest title Assassin’s Creed Mirage is looking to bring the series back to its roots before the monumental launch of Infinfity.

Assassin’s Creed Invictus is currently in development.
