Ubisoft Montreal took to social media platform Twitter to announce that its upcoming Assassin's Creed title has finally gone gold. That's dev industry jargon used when a video game is out of the development stage and a final master copy of it has been prepared. Once a title goes gold, it is ready to be printed onto physical discs and then distributed.
Now that Assassin's Creed Valhalla is ready for mass production, it shouldn't be too long before copies of the game are handed over to distributors - especially considering the fast-approaching launch date.

On behalf of everyone working on the game, we can't wait to see how your own Viking saga unfolds.
