Assassin's Creed: Valhalla -- 15 Studios Are Working On The Game
Ubisoft is going big on the next Assassin's Creed game, putting more than a dozen of its studios to work on it.
Ubisoft is known for its multi-studio game development, but it appears that Assassin's Creed: Valhalla will set a new record in terms of the number of studios working on it.
Ubisoft Montreal is the game's main developer, and the team has recruited a whopping 14 other co-developers to contribute to the game's development. Ubisoft Montreal announced this massive production effort in an update on Twitter after the game's reveal.
Exciting! An immense congratulations to our studio warriors for all the good work and passion building to that reveal. We’d also like to thank the 14 co-dev studios all around the world. You know who you are, and we’re thankful for your dedication! Skàl! pic.twitter.com/hBPpFZKkrP— Ubisoft Montréal (@UbisoftMTL) April 29, 2020
Valhalla will be formally unveiled with its first trailer on Thursday, April 30, so keep checking back with GameSpot for lots more on the game.
The Assassin's Creed series was released on an annual basis until recently, when Ubisoft began giving its development teams more time to build bigger games. 2018's Assassin's Creed: Odyssey was a gigantic game, and it only got bigger with new DLC and updates over the years.
Ubisoft has not announced a release date for Valhalla, which is set in the Viking era, but those details should come soon. 2020 is a big, interesting year in gaming, as Sony and Microsoft will release their next-generation consoles this holiday. An unconfirmed leak said Valhalla will be a cross-generation game, just like Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag in 2013.
