Ubisoft will release the latest Assassin’s Creed game on Amazon Luna, but not Google Stadia. The company plans to bring other highly anticipated games to the platform, including Skull & Bones, but Ubisoft recently confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be exclusive to Luna, at least as far as streaming services go. This naturally surprised many fans of the franchise given the sheer number of Assassin’s Creed games already on the platform.
The news comes from a recent report by Axios. “Next year’s Mirage will be coming to consoles, PCs and streaming, but only to Amazon Luna in terms of cloud services, Ubisoft confirms, despite some apparent announcements of a version for Google Stadia.”
“It’s a remarkable franchise to drop Stadia support,” notes the report in question. “The service’s first public beta in 2018 used one game, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and many Assassin’s Creed games have been released there since. Ubisoft is planning Stadia releases for the 2022 games Skull & Bones and Just Dance.
The report was quickly followed by a post on Twitter by well-known journalist Stephen Totilo, who recently returned from a trip to Paris, France, where he spoke with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot among several others. members of senior management.
“Assassin’s Creed Mirage will not be on Google Stadia,” Totilo remarked. “Just Amazon Luna in terms of streaming services, confirms Ubisoft.” The reporter called the move “an eye-catching omission considering Stadia ran an Assassin’s Creed Odyssey beta test and had tons of Assassin’s Creeds.”
The reasons for keeping Assassin’s Creed Mirage off the streaming service are unclear, but some have speculated the possibility of an exclusivity deal between Ubisoft and Amazon. What this means for Stadia in the future remains to be seen.
