A listing for the game on Amazon confirmed that if you buy the Xbox version of the game, it'll use Xbox's Smart Delivery Technology so you only need to buy it once to play on either Xbox One or Xbox Series X.
It was hard not to miss the big Series X logo that came up on screen after the action subsided, and while PS5 didn't make an appearance on the trailer itself, Ubisoft has confirmed in a press release that it will be coming to the Sony's next-gen console at the end of the year too. The game is also set to be available on UPLAY+, Ubisoft's subscription service at launch.
