Project Invictus, a standalone multiplayer game developed by For Honor veterans, is the name of the new Assassin's Creed multiplayer game that Ubisoft has officially announced.
In our September Assassin's Creed Nexus exclusive article, we referenced Assassin's Creed Invictus.
Assassin's Creed multiplayer is currently being worked on by a team that includes For Honor veterans as a standalone experience through Infinity, under the project codename Invictus, according to Ubisoft's most recent earnings report.
With the addition of this standalone multiplayer game, Assassin's Creed Infinity Hub will now include three games. Invictus, Red, and Hexe.
Ubisoft claims that Assassin's Creed Infinity will act as a starting point for all Assassin's Creed adventures, with the metastory developing asynchronously. – It begs why the publisher holds off on announcing Nexus.
According to the announcement, the project "will enable us to connect games with a common and more compelling storyline thread that will reward players for their involvement in the universe, driving engagement while providing more accessibility for the content we create."
Suppose Invictus follows a similar trend to Nexus, though. In that case, it could create a unique multiplayer title that spans multiple games and settings.
The announcement of Invictus now brings the total amount of Assassin's Creed titles in official development to five, with Nexus being the sixth.
– Assassin's Creed Mirage (Baghdad setting) – Assassin's Creed Project Red (Japan setting) – Assassin's Creed Project Hexe (Central Europe setting)
– Assassin's Creed Project Jade (Mobile/China setting) – Assassin's Creed Invictus (Multiplayer) – Assassin's Creed Project Nexus (VR)
