It seems like Ubisoft just can’t catch a break. Just one day before the planned Ubisoft Forward live stream, the release date for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has apparently leaked via a now-deleted Instagram post on the official Italian Assassin’s Creed Instagram account.
According to the leaked ad, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will apparently launch on 17 November 2020. That’s around the time that most people are expecting next-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be launching. Interestingly, it will also be two days before the release of CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 on 19 November 2020.
Here’s the post in question (courtesy of Gematsu):
Gameplay footage from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was recently leaked earlier this week as well. Officially, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is slated to release sometime during Holiday 2020 for the PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.
The Ubisoft Forward live stream will be taking place this weekend on 13 July 2020 at 3am GMT+8 for Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia. We’ll see if this release date for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla turns out to be true.
