The statement was released on social media after the community voiced concerns that the game would require a constant internet connection, even while playing singleplayer. Thankfully, the concerns appear to be unfounded, but the game will still require a connection to install even if players buy the physical copy. Additionally, PC players will be required to sign in to their Ubisoft account and install the Ubisoft Connect app in order to play, even if bought on another service like Steam.

You can read the full notice in the tweet below:

Assassin’s Creed Shadows was announced yesterday with a full cinematic trailer showcasing the characters and Japanese setting. The game will feature two protagonists, the shinobi Naoe and the historical figure Yasuke, the first African samura.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will require an online connection to install, but it will not be a mandatory always online game while playing in single player. The game itself will launch for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on November 15, 2024.
