Ubisoft recently confirmed they will be working on more free-to-play games in the future, distancing themselves from premium AAA releases, which the company have been pushing strongly over the last decade.
The success of the competition’s free-to-play games such as Call of Duty Warzone and Apex Legends is probably one of the biggest reasons why Ubisoft will try to make their equivalents of these games. They already tried with Hyper Scape and the upcoming The Division Heartland is another similar title, while in the near future, we could also get a free-to-play Assassin’s Creed experience.
According to reliable industry insider Nick Baker aka Shpeshal Nick, the publisher are considering this option but sadly, the details are pretty scarce at the moment. Baker says that he does not know if this is the next Assassin’s Creed or something that they are planning for the future but says they are considering a multiplayer-focused game with “raids and stuff and everything”.

As always with unconfirmed reports, we suggest you take this one with a grain of salt since it’s not been officially announced. Baker has been a reliable and trusted source in the past and his info is probably legit but as you may know, things change during the game development so it’s entirely possible that this game never sees the light of the day.
On the other hand, if the game ever comes out, we don’t really know what to think of it except that it could be a microtransactions heaven for Ubisoft. You want that Altair or Ezio skin? Well, pay up, champ. It’s only $5 in the game store.
