Well, for a minute there, it was looking like we would all be playing Assassin's Creed Origins at 60 frames-per-second on our PS5s this week — but that seems very unlikely at this point. It all started with a new patch for Origins being spotted on PlayStation servers, which usually suggests an imminent release. However, Ubisoft's yet to bring it up in an official capacity, and there's no sign of the update going live at the time of writing.
So what's the hold up? Three words: Xbox Game Pass. Ubisoft confirmed last week that Origins would be heading to Microsoft's subscription service on the 7th June (as reported by our pals at Pure Xbox) — and we're willing to bet that's also when its PS5 patch will finally drop. What's more, the 7th is a Tuesday, and that's almost always the day when Ubisoft refreshes its games with updates and weekly challenges.
It's a bit annoying to know that the update is apparently ready to go and that it's just being held back, but what's another couple of weeks to wait? If our theory does turn out to be accurate, then Ubisoft will probably make an announcement near the end of next week.
If we hear anything in the meantime, we will, of course, write about it here on Push Square.

Well as it stands my mum’s on Black Flag so she’s still got a while yet before she’ll be on Origins! 60FPS will be the icing on the cake though, it’s a superb game.
Make new IPs ubisoft
This might finally get me to beat the game.
C'mon UBISOFT! Don't make PS5 players wait because of a GAME PASS release schedule!? Drop the patch already.
FWP ... LOL!
Went back to Odyssey recently for the first time in forever, love the 60FPS for that game, and looks great. Excited for Origins to get the same treatment, its just as good as Odyssey to me just not massively massively huge like Odyssey, which is fine LOL
I was debating playing this when the Gold edition hits sub $15. Glad it’s getting an update. Wish it was a PS5 upgrade path though. More pointless trophies 🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤 I’ve played Odyssey & Valhalla. Both were good. Valhalla had the better “story” but it dragged on far too long. The side content for the platinum was honestly too much fluff to an extreme point. Odyssey’s world looked fantastic and was more fun to travel in. Would revisit Odyssey if there was a new trophy list. I haven’t played Origins yet. I think I heard it had elephants and I love elephants. They remind me of myself. A lot. Too much of a resemblance 😎😎😎🐘🐘🐘
Elephants, hippos, crocs, camels, horses, a unicorn, and whatever the hell this thing is:
@nessisonett Your mum's further ahead than me, I'm still playing thru AC2 lol.
Glad she seems to be enjoying the franchise though!
@sweatyrich It's a Chocobo
Gutted was hoping for it too drop today or tomorrow guess il have too wait still playing days gone anyway.
I have GamePass, but I bought AC Odyssey on PS4, so not sure what console I’ll be playing it on once the patch drops!
I'm wondering if they will do some crossover content with Valhalla and Odyssey.
Looking forward to giving this a go. Enjoyed what I played of Origins.
The last good Assassin's Creed game. Can't wait to replay it when it drops
Hell yeah, I've only just started this one
I have the PC copy but my PC is old so it's running in the 40'sFPS.
I might grab this one if I can get the full thing for like 5$ or something.
Would much rather they fix the lighting issues in syndicate, but that'll never happen
I'm surprised no one brought it up before when the Patch "leaked" or whatever. The moment it was hinted at and we already knew it was launching on Game Pass (pretty unusual for a Ubisoft game actually, never normally on GP) I knew it would be at the start of June along with its GP Release... Already have the game Plat + 100% on PS4/PS5 and have rebought the entire Series on my Xbox Series X and been waiting since we first heard they'd "look into a 60fps Patch" to replay it and get all the Achievements 🙌
