Ubisoft has confirmed a few more details on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Infinity during the company’s latest earning briefing.

Company CEO Yves Guillemot said (as transcribed by GameSpot) “It’s not going to be a free-to-play [game]. This game is going to have a lot of narrative elements in it.” He added  “It’s going to be very innovative game, but it will have what players already have in all the other Assassin’s Creed games, all the elements that they love… right from the start. So it’s going to be a huge game. But with lots of elements that already exist in the games that we published in the past.”

Chief Financial Officer Frederick Duguet added that the title “is still at an early stage of development,” so it might be a while yet before it sees the light of day. Ubisoft didn’t mention during the call any kind of release window. However it has apparently said its development teams will launch “meaningful” paid content for the series every year. Which could mean we’ll be seeing a new paid expansion for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla next year? We’ll have to wait and see.

Assassin’s Creed Infinity was first formally announced back in July. While details are still vague, it’s believed it’s to be something of a constantly updated online platform. Both Ubisoft’s Montreal and Quebec studios will be working on the project. Hopefully we’ll hear more soon.
