Ubisoft is betting big on their Assassin’s Creed franchise as they’ve announced along with their earnings call for the fiscal year 2023. So much so that they aim to increase the number of developers working on the series by 40%.
This would be a massive bump as currently there are just over 2,000 employees working on the games right now. So based on those numbers, this would put the final number at over 2,800.
Of course all these resources aren’t targeted towards one game. As of this writing, there are six games in the franchise set to launch in the future. Some examples of these games include Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Codename Jade. The latter of which is will be a mobile game.
It makes sense that they would focus heavily on the franchise now. The earning report revealed that Ubisoft has seen more active players than ever before for the games. Not to mention they’ve also seen massive increases in revenue per player to the tune of an increase of 82% year over year.
While there are all these projects coming up. You can already play the latest in the series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla which is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store).
