Update 12/7: Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be releasing on Nov. 17, 2020.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was announced by Ubisoft back in April, and the game’s Viking setting has already hyped-up fans. The game will bring back the much-coveted hidden-blade and will be incorporating many changes compared to the last iteration of the franchise. Here is when Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be releasing on Nov. 17, 2020. The release date was earlier leaked on a post posted by Assassin’s Creed Italy on Instagram. The post was quickly taken down; however, it is still available on Reddit.
The leak eventually turned out to be true as Ubisoft confirmed that it will be released in November only at the Ubisoft Forward 2020 event. This means that the game might be released just two days before Cyberpunk 2077, which is slated to release on Nov. 19, 2020.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla might be the turning point for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Ubisoft’s has been emphasizing on developing a smaller yet immersive world, and that is something which the fan base has been asking for. While recent iterations of the franchise have received mixed response due to the new direction it has taken, in Valhalla Ubisoft has a great opportunity of giving the franchise its own identity once again.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla‘s release date might suggest the time frame for the release of next-gen consoles considering that the game will be a launch title for both the Xbox Series X and the PS5. With just a day to go for the Ubisoft Forward 2020 event, we should get confirmation about the release date.
