2022 is likely to be the equivalent of 2016, where Ubisoft pursue transmedia projects in favour of a big release the following year. It's possible that this year could finally bring about some news about the highly anticipated Assassin's Creed TV show that's currently being produced for Netflix. Ubisoft may also focus on releasing smaller projects such as audio books and comics whilst the

Clear Stance on NFTS

At the end of 2021, Ubisoft set up a studio known as  'Quartz', which is looking to find ways of integrating NFT elements into games. This is an already controversial topic, made even worse by Nicolas Pouard, an executive at Ubisoft declaring that gamers 'don't get' NFTS as 'it’s not an easy concept to grasp.' This naturally created an online backlash from fans.

It's simple. Our position here at TOWCB is one that is opposed to the sale of NFTs. We do not support the practice in any way, and neither should Ubisoft. We don't want to buy a digital limited edition picture of Ezio. We just want to see excellent storytelling and games that respect the franchise and its lore.

Ubisoft will no doubt be tempted to include an NFT market within the Assassin's Creed Infinity platform, but they must resist the urge, as it can damage the brand. Microtransactions are already a big issue within Assassin's Creed games, with new content dropping on a regular basis for those who wish to spend their money on digital items. NFTS are simply the next toxic digital practice, and companies are pouncing at the opportunity to make more money. Infinity is an opportunity for Ubisoft to reject the 'digital secondary market' and put the community first.
