Time for another Assassin's Creed report? You bet. Earlier this year we first started hearing about 'Rift', a rumoured small-scale Assassin's Creed title to hit store shelves before the big live service revamp with Assassin's Creed Infinity. As it turns out it's back in the headlines again, this time because of, well, a delay.

According to Bloomberg, 'Assassin's Creed Rift', which is reportedly set in Baghdad, has been shifted from February 2023 into the following fiscal year, which starts in April. The report says Ubisoft is currently aiming for somewhere around May-June 2023.

Kotaku also reports the very same delay, with less specifics as to the exact timing of Ubisoft's move. That report also touches on a wide selection of delays and cancellations currently ongoing at Ubisoft as the company is supposedly reshuffling to focus on titles with "higher priority".

Ahead of 2023, the company does have Skull & Bones finally launching this November. However, it doesn't seem like plain sailing over there either (sorry, we had to), with reports that the game lacks depth in every measurable area. Ouch.

Is there anything upcoming from Ubisoft that you're looking forward to? Comment below!
