Assassin's Creed Valhalla has been the subject of many leaks recently, from actual gameplay to trailers, and now it appears the release date has leaked as well. This comes ahead of the Ubisoft Forward event, which premiers on July 12th, 2020 at noon Pacific.
The release date for Assassin's Creed Valhalla leaked after a Reddit user posted an Instagram message from the game's Italian page. On the page, we see November 17th, 2020 as the presumed release date. As users in the Reddit thread point out, this is just two days before the launch of the highly anticipated CD Projekt Red title, Cyberpunk 2077.
While we cannot confirm the authenticity of this leak, it appears to be credible. Furthermore, it's timely considering that the Ubisoft Forward event is tomorrow, which should give us gameplay and an official confirmation of the release date for Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Earlier this week, Assassin's Creed Valhalla had some gameplay leaked, as well. The contents of said leak are hard to come by, but it showed the player character (Eivor) exploring an English countryside, as well as besieging a castle by way of boat. Whether this specific instance of gameplay will be shown at the Ubisoft Forward event is unknown. We can also expect to see Far Cry 6's official reveal at the event, which was also leaked on the internet. Afterwards, it was officially teased by Ubisoft.
For now, we know that Assassin's Creed Valhalla likely launches on November 17th, 2020, so get ready to harass the medieval countryside of England soon.
Ubisoft's had a rough go of it lately. A few weeks ago, I remember seeing some gameplay for the game formally known as Gods and Monsters, which was promptly pulled from the internet. Then there was all manner of leaks for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, culminating in this release date. There's also Far Cry 6. I'm not sure if this is all deliberate on Ubisoft's part, but I'm in the camp that these leaks are released by the company to build hype. Then again, I didn't find Gods and Monsters nor Valhalla's gameplay to be very impressive.
