After many leaks and much speculation, Ubisoft finally revealed that Assassin’s Creed: Ragnarok is, in fact, titled Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. As we expected it’ll feature a Norse setting and you’ll play as a Viking, although, amongst all the excitement, it appears as though no AC: Valhalla Switch version was announced. So, is there an Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Nintendo Switch release date that Ubisoft is playing close to its chest?
In this guide, we’ll let you know whether or not you should expect to play an Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Nintendo Switch port.
Is Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla coming to Nintendo Switch?
At the time of writing, Ubisoft hasn’t announced any plans regarding an AC: Valhalla Nintendo Switch release. Due to the apparent lack of plans, there isn’t currently an Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Nintendo Switch release date.
Although there’s no official news yet, it is possible that Valhalla could reach Nintendo’s hybrid handheld at some stage. The AC series is no stranger to Nintendo Switch, what with Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, IV Black Flag, and Rogue all currently available on the console. Significant downgrades would need to be made, but with AC: Valhalla supporting Xbox One and PS4 alongside their next-gen counterparts it at least seems technically feasible — plenty of current-generation titles have already transitioned, after all.
Not hearing an AC: Valhalla Nintendo Switch announcement during the initial reveal shouldn’t be cause for concern either, as all of the aforementioned Assassin’s Creed Switch games hit the console later than other platforms.
With that being said, it’s also entirely possible — some might argue likely — that we’ll never get an Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Nintendo Switch release date. This Norse AC instalment has already spent longer in development than many prior games and will be one of the first titles to release for PS5 and Xbox Series X; it’s intended to serve as a technical showpiece, which would make porting down to the Switch not only difficult but potentially even counterproductive.
