BEAUTIFUL: And deadly at the same time


Ubisoft has given us the vague "holiday 2020" line. Which could put it anywhere from mid-September onwards.

With more info expected in the Xbox Series X announcements over the coming months, we are hopeful of getting a date to circle soon.

Release date rumours

The current rumour mill places the game's release date on 29 September.

Of course, plenty of rumours and leaks have been wrong or out-right lies (Hello Spider-Man 2) so don't take this date as gospel.

However, we do know that the game will be available on both Xbox One and PS4 as current-gen pre-orders are open.
