Assassin's Creed Syndicate PS5 Update Finally Fixes Long-Running Issue

The flickering issues on PS5 are being addressed.


Ubisoft will release a patch on February 23 at 3 AM PT / 6 AM ET for Assassin's Creed Syndicate on PlayStation 4. It will fix the flickering issue that plagues the game when it is being played on PlayStation 5.

The flickering problem on PlayStation 5 is such a nuisance that it practically makes Assassin's Creed Syndicate unplayable, as the game repeatedly flashes white light. It has been an issue since the launch of Sony's console back in 2020 and Ubisoft even addressed them last year, although the company deleted the tweet.

Ubisoft is working on several Assassin's Creed games right now, including Assassin's Creed Mirage, which is set to launch sometime this year. Project Red is an Assassin's Creed game set in feudal Japan and Project Hexe is seemingly based on witches.

In GameSpot's Assassin's Creed Syndicate review, we said, "Coupled with strong, loveable leads and a seemingly endless procession of ways to leave your mark on London's history, Assassin's Creed Syndicate is a shining example of gameplay and storytelling."
