As the curiosity of AC Valhalla fans for the Dawn of Ragnarok expansion grows, Bloomberg reporters surprise Ubisoft’s development of another project codenamed “Assassin’s Creed Rift” and intended to arrive on PC and consoles between the end of 2022 and the first half of 2023.
From Bloomberg’s columns, Jason Schreier reports that he learned from various sources within Ubisoft that the French videogame giant, originally intending to launch Rift as an expansion of Valhalla, would have decided to turn it into a separate video game to be published, in fact, at the end of 2022 or immediately afterwards. the upcoming holiday season. According to Schreier, this decision would have been made according to the development time required by the ambitious project in episodes of Assassin’s Creed Infinity.
Still according to Schreier, Rift would be in development from 2020: the anonymous sources cited by the editor of Bloomberg News specify that the title will have as protagonist Basima character already known by fans of AC Valhalla, and who should be from smaller scope compared to Valhalla itself or previous AC Odyssey and Origins, precisely because of its self-expanding nature of Valhalla.
According to Schreier, therefore, Assassin’s Creed Rift should offer a more “classic” and stealth gameplaythus relegating free roaming activities and free map exploration to a marginal role.
