Two Ubisoft Games Receive PlayStation 5 Release Dates

One of them will be a launch title, but the other one will come a little later.

On the Ubisoft Store, we can read that the newest instalment of the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla (which still has no director after the previous one, Ashraf Ismail, was found to be involved in sexual harassments via the internal investigations at Ubisoft, who then promptly fired him!), will be available from November 12 on Sony’s next-gen console. In Europe, that will be November 19, as the PlayStation 5 Standard Edition and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition (which is reportedly being manufactured in a smaller amount than the disc version of the console) will launch on that continent on that day.

Also on the Ubisoft Store, we can read that the third Watch Dogs game, Watch Dogs: Legion, will be available on PlayStation 5 from November 24. That’s weird: on the Xbox Series, it’s a launch title, meaning it’s available there from November 10…

The London-set hacking will add Aiden Pearce as a post-launch DLC character. Here’s what Ubisoft had to say about it 1.5 weeks ago: „As part of the Watch Dogs: Legion post-launch content, Aiden Pearce will be back as a fully playable character, along with a dedicated story arc. The Season Pass of Watch Dogs: Legion is available for purchase as part of the Gold, Ultimate and Collector editions, and will offer one new story expansion delivered in two narrative arcs, extra DedSec missions, four unique heroes including Aiden Pearce, the Complete Edition of the original Watch Dogs game from 2014, and more. The full lineup of the Watch Dogs: Legion post-launch content will be detailed in the coming weeks. It will include some exciting free content and will bring playable characters, online content, new modes, missions and updates.” We’re not going into the other announcement from Ubisoft Forward here.

Won’t it hurt Ubisoft that they’ll launch two open-world AAA titles (or Ubisoft-formula games…) in two weeks?
