Sadly, Xbox fooled everyone, and yesterday’s Inside Xbox did not reveal gameplay of any of the announced games. Fans are rightfully disappointed and some even angry, developers and publishers also followed Xbox’s promise to unveil gameplay which also put the companies like Ubisoft facing the backlash of their fans.
Yesterday, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Creative Director, Ashraf Ismail tried to acknowledge fans’ anger while promising that, what it was promised will be delivered soon.
You rightfully expected to see more today. We have a long marketing campaign ahead of us, you will see in-depth gameplay and get a lot more info about the game.
Thank you for your excitement and passion! Be patient with us and be kind. It will be worth it!🙂
