Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Release Date Leaked, Ubisoft Executives Resign

Ubisoft made it within a few days of their Ubisoft Forward event, then everything fell apart. A day before the event and a day after Far Cry 6 was leaked on PlayStation’s Hong Kong store, a rogue Instagram post revealed the Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla release date. Assassin’s Creed’s Italian Instagram account posted and quickly removed a photo that showed Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla’s release date to be November 17, 2020. Ubisoft has also announced the resignations of some key people in the company.

The Valhalla leak spoils the second-biggest announcement for Ubisoft Forward. What’s disheartening is that this leak and the Far Cry 6 leak were entirely avoidable and the products of people making simple mistakes. Part of what’s great about press conferences and gaming events is the promise of new content and announcements that get us excited for the future of games. Leaks like this hurt both the industry and its community.
