What Assassin's Creed Infinity's Real Name Could Be | Screen Rant

Ubisoft recently announced that the next game in the Assassin’s Creed series is in the works. What is different about this title is that it will be a live service game. Instead of releasing a complete story on launch day that might see some DLC, this new entry to the Assassin's Creed series will allegedly be supported for some time and given new content long after release. At this point, there is very little known about the game, as even the actual title hasn’t been released yet. It is currently going by the project name of Assassin’s Creed Infinity. Each game in the series comes with an iconic name like Assassin’s Creed Origins or Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so it is interesting to speculate over this new game’s actual title.

While the details of this upcoming entry to the Assassin’s Creed franchise are scare, it has been reported that the game will take place over different periods of time and in different settings. From what it sounds like, Ubisoft is planning to put several smaller Assassin’s Creed games into Infinity, instead of making separate titles for each of the storylines. With this in mind, the game couldn’t really be titled off of a specific culture or location. This entry will be more expansive, and the title should reflect that.

A great title could have been Assassin’s Creed Unity, but that one is already taken. The real name could, however, be something like it. It could be Assassin’s Creed Alliance - a name that would work great with an online multiplayer component, if that’s included. This title could work with the separate storylines across different settings. Or it could be called Assassin’s Creed Synthesis, which would also be a nod to the title’s separate plot lines all coming together in one game.

Another possibility for Assassin’s Creed Infinity is that there could be character creation. Even without it, all the distinct storylines will probably have their own protagonists, especially if they take place other time periods. To go with this theme, the title could be Assassin’s Creed Identity. The game could focus on who the assassins are throughout history, and how they evolve, making this the perfect name.

The overarching plot of Assassin’s Creed has always been focused on the Templars and the Assassins, and it stands to reason that this will continue to be the case for this live service entry. To represent this seemingly endless fight, the name could be Assassin’s Creed Discordance or, similar to the current name, Assassin’s Creed Eternal. Either name encapsulates the theme of that never-ending conflict, but Eternal, in particular, would go well with the live service model. Perhaps even better, with the fact that live service game are constantly being updated and improved - and the fact that this is a new move for the series as whole - the game could be titled Assassin’s Creed Evolution.

It’s impossible to say for sure which direction Ubisoft will go with Assassin’s Creed Infinity’s true name, or even with the game itself. No matter what the name ends up being, it will be interesting to see where the Assassin’s Creed series goes from here. Will this live service game be the future of the franchise? Or will the traditional games make a comeback? It all depends on how fans respond.
