As spotted by PlayStationSize, a Twitter account that monitors the PSN database, update 1.60 for Assassin’s Creed Origins will include the following according to patch notes:
- “Added a Franchise Menu”
- “Enabled higher framerate when running on PlayStation 5 console”
Ubisoft originally revealed plans for a 60fps update in December when it tweeted: “We are also looking into adding 60fps support for Assassin’s Creed Origins, so stay tuned.”

Last August, Ubisoft added 60fps support for 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey when played on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S via backwards compatibility.
Ubisoft is reportedly planning to release a smaller-scale, stealth-focused Assassin’s Creed game later this year or in 2023.
Codenamed Rift and starring Assassin’s Creed Valhalla character Basim, the title was originally planned as an expansion for the most recent series entry before being spun into a standalone game last year, Bloomberg claims.
It will reportedly focus on stealth gameplay and be smaller in scope than recent franchise entries, meaning it won’t be a large open-world RPG.
Assassin’s Creed Rift will reportedly be released before the officially announced Assassin’s Creed Infinity, which is a collaboration between Ubisoft Quebec (Odyssey) and Ubisoft Montreal (Origins and Valhalla).
It’s been claimed that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be a massive online game set across multiple historical periods, and one that that evolves over time as a live service.
