Ubisoft has made a change to the Collector’s editions on Xbox for three of its most anticipated games. If you pre-ordered the Collector’s editions for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, or Far Cry 6 on Xbox, you will now receive a digital copy of the game rather than a physical edition.
In a short post announcing the change, Ubisoft didn’t provide a reason, but it could be related to Xbox’s Smart Delivery feature, which grants access to select games on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Essentially, you buy a game once to play on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X. All three of these Ubisoft titles support Smart Delivery, so there’s only one Collector’s edition for each game that will be compatible with both Xbox consoles.
