Ubisoft has postponed the release date for the upcoming title Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Now the much anticipated game will be released on November 10th on the exact same day Microsoft starts its next generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Ubisoft tweeted the exciting news to fans on Wednesday.
The tweet also said that gamers can “upgrade from Xbox One to Xbox Series X at no additional cost”. The offer also extends to the upgrade to the Xbox series S.

Xbox was in a weak position in the face of the shift from Halo Infinite until 2021. Chris Lee, who runs the studio for Halo Infinitehad written that the delay was to ensure that the development team “was given enough time to deliver a Halo gaming experience that would come true [their] Vision”.
The shift meant that Microsoft’s latest console, touted as the most powerful console in the world, no longer had a title game. So Ubisoft is working hard to accelerate the launch of the Xbox Series X by releasing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla a week ahead. This also means the latest Assassin’s Creed game is the new title game for Xbox consoles. As stated by the company, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is not only available for the latest generation Xbox consoles and will be available the same day for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Stadia, PC and UPlay +.
Earlier, Microsoft released the cost of its Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X in India. While the Xbox Series X sells for Rs 49,990, the slimmed-down version Xbox Series S costs Rs 34,990. Pre-orders for both consoles will start on September 22nd and will be released on November 10th.
