Datamine Suggests Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Could Be Coming To Steam

The data mined information appears to have strengthened the once-obscure rumor.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was a well-acclaimed title for Ubisoft that told the epic tales of the Viking era. For most gamers, Valhalla hailed the crown after snatching it from its predecessor. Despite minor criticisms, it has aged like fine cheese because of DLCs and updates, enchanting its overall feel after many months since its release. 

Like Odyssey, it doubled down on the innovative RPG formula that recent renditions in the Assassin’s Creed franchise seem to have followed.

The distaste because of that choice led to some gamers not relishing its open world that perfectly encapsulates the fictional fables of Vikings through the lens of the Assassin’s Creed universe. 

The PC version was originally only released on the Ubisoft Connect and Epic Games Store. However, the latest rumor supported by convincing evidence suggests the game’s arrival on Steam is imminent after two years of patience. 

Major Takeaway:

  • Recently dug reverse-engineered info from the Ubisoft Connect Launcher discloses a new product entry for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
  • The data mined information by YoobieRe was originally spotted on the SteamDB Discord server.
  • The image teases the eventual release of the title on Steam.
  • The exact date is unknown, and there is no way to pinpoint it right now.

YoobieRe recently data mined the Ubisoft Connect Launcher and stumbled upon some interesting details regarding Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The reverse-engineered code for Ubisoft Connect reveals a mention of the Steam version in its database. As per the evidence, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla could soon be slated for Steam.

The image of the Ubisoft Connect database was reverse-engineered to unveil the Steam version listing.

The image was initially shared on the SteamDB Discord server and reveals the title’s product listing for the Steam storefront. The exact date is anyone’s guess, and there is no proper way to pinpoint a concrete date. Steam already garners most of the Assassin’s Creed games, and not having Valhalla seems unwise.

Moreover, data-mined details are hardly ever proven wrong since it is technically officially stated but hidden evidence. Regardless, it is best to take this newly dug data mine information with a grain of salt.

It would make a lot of sense for Ubisoft to finally release a Steam version of the title, as not adding it has arguably brought more disdain and damage to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla than any good. Furthermore, a Steam version can be anticipated to arrive for several reasons.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla disregarded the Steam platform and preferred the Epic Games Store. The new storefront still lacks much-needed features that gamers favor despite featuring many intriguing qualities and deals.

Steam will continue to dominate the PC gaming market, as it recently garnered over 30 million concurrent users. Releasing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Steam will benefit the overall sales and may bring a new scoop of gamers looking to experience the stellar storyline of the game.

The addition of a Steam version may also tease the inclusion of Assassin’s Creed Mirage on Steam upon release. Ubisoft will lose a bundle of potential audience and purchases if it leaves Steam out for the Epic Games Store.
