Assassin’s Creed Rift might not release until Summer 2023

We've known that Ubisoft has an Assassin's Creed Valhalla spin-off in the works for a few months now. The game, known as Assassin's Creed Rift, will centre around one of the side characters from Valhalla, but while Ubisoft was initially planning a late 2022 or early 2023 release, the game has been internally delayed a bit further. 

Assassin's Creed Rift will bridge the gap between major titles. We're already coming up on the two year anniversary of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Assassin's Creed Infinity still needs another couple of years in development. Rift will fill that gap, focusing on Basim, a character you meet in Valhalla. The game will also reportedly be set in Baghdad, according to Eurogamer.

While we were initially expecting this game in late 2022 or in February/March 2023, Ubisoft has internally delayed the game since. According to a new Bloomberg report, Ubisoft is now targeting a May or June 2023 release window for the game.

We should get some official news on Assassin's Creed Rift, and possibly even an early teaser for Assassin's Creed Infinity in September, as Ubisoft will be holding an Assassin's Creed anniversary stream with new announcements.
