We recently wrote about the postponement of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora to the next fiscal year. We mentioned at the time that Ubisoft had also delayed the release of another unannounced game. It was supposed to be Assassin’s Creed Rift, which according to leaks is a spin-off of the popular series. Jason Schreier has now confirmed this.
In an article published on Bloomberg, the journalist, citing anonymous sources, said that Rift was originally planned to be released in February next year. However, it was decided that the release would take place in May or June. Thus, the delay is not very large, but important for the company. This means that the game will only go on sale in the next fiscal year.
At the same time, Jason Schreier once again announced that Assassin’s Creed Rift should take place in the Middle East. Initially, the game was conceived as an expansion for Valhalla, but it was decided to make a separate project out of it, which would fill the gap in the release.
In addition, there have been rumors that Ubisoft is currently working on another Assassin’s Creed game, codenamed Red. However, according to Schreier, it won’t be a standalone game, but part of AC Infinity.
