(Update) The floodgates have opened: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion dates confirmed for next-gen

Xbox Series X/S is out on the same day

[Update: Ubisoft re-confirmed that Watch Dogs Legion is coming on October 29 with a recruitment video, which you can watch below. Stormzy will also get an exclusive mission in the game and Aiden Pearce will appear as a playable character, complete with his “iconic cap.” 2020 y’all.]

This morning, Microsoft made it official following myriad leaks: the next generation, as far as they are concerned, is happening on November 10. Boom.

On that day the Xbox Series X and the Series S will release, and the floodgates have been opened for every other publisher to say “hey, our stuff is coming too.” Ubisoft is one of the first to fire off that salvo, noting that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is coming on November 10 for the Xbox Series X and the Series S. It’ll also launch on PC, PS4 and Stadia on that same date. The publisher boasts that the game will run at 60FPS “in full 4K resolution” on Series X.

Ubisoft also explains that Watch Dogs: Legion, which is still slated for a current-gen release on October 29, will be a “day one” Xbox Series X/S title on November 10, and will benefit from “hardware accelerated raytracing” on Series X/S. Oh, and the “Smart Delivery” system is still a go for both games. As a reminder, if you buy the game on Xbox One or Series X/S, you can play it cross-generation for free. Cross-save between Xbox One and the X/S is in too.
