Yes, you read the headline correctly. Final Fantasy and Assassin's Creed will be teaming up for the next DLC for Final Fantasy XV. The crossover will begin next week during a festival in Final Fantasy XV.
Ubisoft has released a blog post announcing the partnership:
"The collaboration kicks off on August 30, as Final Fantasy XV players who have obtained the Dream Egg from the Moogle Chocobo Carnival event will be gifted a very familiar Assassin outfit for Noctis. The very next day, August 31, will be the release of the free Assassin’s Festival DLC for Final Fantasy XV. The town of Lestallum will transform itself for the event with signs and banners signaling the arrival of the festival, and new activities will be available for players to participate in. It doesn’t end there. The Assassin’s Festival will have some additional themed items and features, including another outfit from Assassin’s Creed, along with abilities that enable Noctis to explore more like an Assassin and even use some of the Assassins’ more well-known abilities."
My Take - This is one of the most bizarre crossovers Ubisoft has probably ever done. This seems very promotional at its core. This isn't surprising after the announcement of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.
