The latest game in the main series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, already supports 60 fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Looking ahead, Ubisoft has not announced any new Assassin’s Creed games for 2022. However, it’s been reported that a smaller-scale Assassin’s Creed title featuring Basim from Valhalla is coming in 2022 or 2023. After that, Ubisoft is said to be planning a much larger game codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity.
Ubisoft is expected to host its own summer games showcase, but the company has not announced plans as of yet. While we wait, here’s a rundown of what we hope to see from Ubisoft this summer during Not-E3.
