With AC7 now officially a thing, and more than likely some if not a lot of resources are being redeployed to that project, Infinity is likely to be nearing its end. But there is the possibility that it won't and that it will keep going for some time yet. Given no release date is announced yet for 7, and they're only about 20% complete thus far, there is certainly a decent amount of time left for Infinity, but how much effort will they put into it?
My question, to the Infinity audience playing the game still, is how much effort should they put into maintaining and updating Infinity? I think there are a reasonable number of folks who would like to see them keep good on the allusion to an eternal game (as unrealistic as that might be) and let the Infinity servers run until there just isn't anyone on them anymore. There are also those who certainly would like to see a real conclusion to the storyline of Infinity's campaign.
There are of course complications that a company would have in running two games like this at the same time, not least of them being basic cost-benefit scenarios. Few of these are entirely prohibitive, but are mainly restictive. Setting up a new batch of servers to run the online component for 7 while also keeping Infnity on a differnet console would have its own logistical/financial hurdles. And, conceivably, they could officially wrap up Infinity in the months and months they likely have between now and 7's launch.
The question is not whther or not they can. All things considered, should that effort be put into Infinity? Should they wrap up Infinity storywise before the launch of 7 either in 2016 or 17, or should they undertake the challenge of keeping it running concurrently beyond 7's eventual launch?
