Ubisoft Delays Next Assassin’s Creed Game

Ubisoft Delays Next Assassin’s Creed Game

Ubisoft has, reportedly, delayed the next instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Coming from Bloomberg, the delay will see the new title now ship sometime in the Spring.

Originally planned as an expansion to Valhalla, the new game eventually grew into its own standalone title.

The new game, code-named “Rift“, is alleged to be set in the Middle East.

Apparently, Ubisoft Bordeaux – the lead studio working on Rift – has requested more time to work on the project as it is running behind schedule.

Of course, this is the latest setback for Ubisoft, which already has a minuscule amount of concrete releases slated for this fiscal year.

The French studio reportedly cancelled Splinter Cell VR, Ghost Recon Frontlines, and two other games.

Ubisoft has also delayed the Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

Currently, Ubisoft only has two games scheduled for the 2022-23 period; Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and Skull & Bones.
