AC Valhalla Creative Director Shared Why Inside Xbox Reveal Was Opted Out
He was not expecting Negative Reaction
Valhalla Fans were disappointed during Inside Xbox Livestream that failed to impress everyone. Many new titles were announced during the event, except there was nothing great for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla IP. At the end of Livestream, a few seconds footage was not which resemble more like a trailer than gameplay. Upon asking Ashraf Ismail (Creative Director) about the gameplay footage, he shared this is what coming right from the game.
Ashraf Ismail and GM, Games Marketing (Xbox) Aaron Greenberg admit it was a big let down via tweets. He acknowledges the issues and shared there is a long marketing campaign ahead, which may hint we will be getting to see more reveals but in chunks. Or the game is not yet ready to get displayed in public.
You rightfully expected to see more today. We have a long marketing campaign ahead of us, you will see in-depth gameplay and get a lot more info about the game.
Thank you for your excitement and passion! Be patient with us and be kind. It will be worth it!🙂

Aaron Greenberg also acknowledges the same and did not share any major info whether there will be any major reveal coming in the future.
Had we not said anything & just shown May Inside Xbox show like we did last month, I suspect reactions might have been different. Clearly we set some wrong expectations & that’s on us. We appreciate all the feedback & can assure you we will take it all in & learn as a team. 🙏🏻💚
