ASSASSIN’S CREED VALHALLA Has Gone Gold Even Without Its Creative Director on Board

Publisher Ubisoft has officially confirmed that the highly anticipated Assassin's Creed Valhalla has gone gold, which basically means that the base version of Ubisoft Montreal's next major project is more or less finished.
With Assassin's Creed Valhalla now being practically done, the studio can focus more on finishing its day-one patch and creating its first big expansion. Ubisoft has already revealed that they are planning to release new (and mostly free) content for the follow-up to 2018's AC: Odyssey during Valhalla's post-launch phase.
Although Ashraf Ismail was supposed to supervise the making of the title until the end of its developmental cycle, Ubisoft revealed in August that they had decided to part ways with the renowned creative director — who worked on 2013's AC: Black Flag and 2017's AC: Origins — following accusations of sexual harassment.
The 12th major Assassin's Creed game (!) will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Google Stadia and PC (via both Uplay and the EGS) on the 10th of November, with its PlayStation 5 launching 2 days later.
It's probably worth remembering that Ubisoft Montreal's Assassin's Creed Valhalla is not the only big video game the French publisher will release in the next two months, as Ubisoft Toronto's Watch Dogs Legion will make its debut on October 29 and Ubisoft Quebec's original Immortals Fenyx Rising on December 3, 2020.
