It was a chaotic few months for Ubisoft. In August, Ubisoft fired Valhalla creative director Ashraf Ismail following false claims of misbehavior. The shooting of Ismail was just one of many, as Ubisoft faced a larger reckoning with reports about years of toxic culture allowing harassment, sexual misconduct, racism, and more.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla also available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Stadia. Sony has not yet announced a release date for the upcoming console.
