"Assassin’s Creed Valhalla" is Ubisoft’s second-largest profit-generating game in Ubisoft’s history, the company revealed today in its latest earnings report.

Why it matters: "Valhalla," which launched in November 2020, has rocketed to that spot in under a year.

  • Ubisoft plans to release "great new content" for the game in the second half of the fiscal year, ending March 31, 2022.
  • It’s unclear whether the company will release a new "Assassin’s Creed" game next year; it did confirm, however, that upcoming project "Assassin’s Creed Infinity" will not be free-to-play.

Ubisoft also confirmed three game delays: "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake," "The Division Heartland" and "Rocksmith+."

  • The trio has been pushed to Ubisoft’s next fiscal year, a timeframe of April 2022 to March 2023. Its upcoming mobile game with Tencent is also slated for that same period.
  • On Twitter, the "Prince of Persia" team reassured fans that the game’s development “is still under way, motivated and inspired by your feedback.” The game has already had a few delays, mostly COVID-19-related.
