There's another 'delay' news from the gaming world. This time, it's Assassin's Creed Valhalla's first expansion pack Wrath of the Druids that is being delayed. Developer Ubisoft announced on Twitter that Wrath of Druids, which was supposed to come out this month, will now release on May 13.
Ubisoft has not mentioned the reason for the delay but if we have to take a guess, it's probably because of the COVID-19 and work from home situation. The developer will roll out an article to provide more details about the delay.
