Assassin's Creed Valhalla is still in development and it's due to launch later this year on PS4 and PS5, but creative director Ashraf Ismail has revealed that he's leaving the project. "I am stepping down from my beloved project to properly deal with the personal issues in my life. The lives of my family and my own are shattered. I am deeply sorry to everyone hurt in this," Ismail wrote on Twitter.
Ismail was the director on both Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Origins. He continues: "There are hundreds of talented, passionate people striving to build an experience for you that do not deserve to be associated with this. I wish them all the best."
