What Can We Expect In Wave 2?

The contents of this article will be updated as soon as new info is made available.

When Is Wave 2 Coming?

Firework Show

According to information revealed in the Wave 1 update announcement, we can expect to have the second part sometime in early August.

Fireworks Show Coming?

Given the art in the background of the promotional picture above, it's reasonable to assume that the August update will include the return of the Fireworks Show. This feature was in previous AC games, which you can read more about in our detailed article below. If it happens, it's likely to go live in the first week of August!
