Since the game was announced, there has been a debate about the inaccuracy of the African samurai being portrayed as Yasuke in Ubisoft’s title. On social media, particularly X/Twitter and Reddit, it’s not hard to find players complaining about this fact.

It is unlikely that Ubisoft will cancel the game, as there was a large investment (all Assassin’s Creed games have a high budget), as well as pressure from investors to get their investment back. Ubisoft has not yet commented on the issue.

Anyway, Assassin’s Creed Shadows arrives on November 15 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
