Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released in November 2020. Its first major expansion, The Wrath of the Druids, launched in May, and its second expansion, The Siege of Paris, will be released in the coming months.
“We will continue to deliver a powerful content of Assassin’s Creed for the coming months and years, starting with an ambitious post-launch plan for Valhalla, including the expansion of the Siege of Paris next summer, the release of the Discovery Tour Viking Age, is an ambitious and surprising second year of content for the first time in the franchise’s history, ”Duguet said Tuesday.

Ubisoft confirmed for the first time in June that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will receive a second year of expansion in 2022.
“For the first time on an Assassin’s Creed title we will be supporting the game until its second year,” said Karen Lee, developer of Ubisoft Montreal’s senior community.
“While this year will be a very active year for the game, we’re already working on more expansions for next year. Something tells me that Eivor isn’t even done with Odin.”
The next update of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla title seems to feature one-handed swords in the game. Ubisoft mocked the arrival of the much-requested feature in a tweet from the official Assassin’s Creed account Monday.
During Tuesday’s earnings call, Ubisoft also provided some additional details on the recently unveiled Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is expected to be a massive online game that will evolve over time as a live service.
