@xtrior I already reported this to ubisoft via support, I did everything they asked for, now they referred me to the support of nvidia.
after the last update of the most recent game, I'm using another method that solves without needing to re-install drivers I do it now and for me it works.
I run the game until it crashes
2 close game and restart pc and open game again and it will work , sometimes i have to restart the pc about 3 times to work but it works.

Guys I have interesting findings. (Still testing so it may not really solve the crashing issues)
So few days ago I got an Nvidia display crash while watching a Youtube video, so I went and googled this and found out that a lot of people have the same issue.
Here are some of many examples:
So I saw many people solved these YouTube crashes by setting every PCIe option in their motherboard BIOS from "Auto" to "PCIe Gen 3"
I have tried this and so far no crashes, I really really hope it's not just a coincidence.
Please try this guys and report back. Also, if you have any PCIe cards installed (like a wireless card, sound card etc.., remove them just for the sake of troubleshooting, I read that in some cases PCIe lanes are conflicting with new drivers and new GPUs especially with older boards) I am not sure what combination to try but I removed my WLAN PCIe card and set every PCIe setting in BIOS to PCIe Gen 3, now hoping to find the culprit.
That really only applies to the 3000 series ..... I haven't had any problems with my 2080 Super and YouTube ..... It might only affect AMD MBs since Intel hasn't moved to Gen 4.0 yet and the same is true for the 2000 series graphics, those are only Gen 3 and really that's all you need for graphics right now ..... Now the RX 5700 are Gen 4.0 ready although it doesn't gain you squat since they are too slow to saturate a Gen 3 buss
Hmm ok maybe it doesn't apply to all but yah, I have intel Z370 motherboard and 3000 card. Thing is, from what I understood it has something to do with power features with the 3000 series and not really the actual Gen of the PCIe, this forces it to use Gen 3 at all times. Even some people have had success setting the Power management mode to Prefer maximum performance in Nvidia control panel, at least regarding the YouTube issue.

A new Hot fix driver from Nvidia.I haven't tried them yet as I'm stuck at work.
- "[Assassin's Creed Valhalla] Game may randomly crash after extended gameplay [200679654"
I'll try them when I get off from work.
I haven't tried the driver yet but darn that's bad news. Did you check event viewer to see if it's still the same infamous "display driver stopped working" issue?
What GPU and CPU do you have?
I wonder what hack nvidia used on the drivers thinking they fixed these crashing issues. Must be some tweaks to power management features.
@eniora Yep! I checked event viewer immediately after crash, its the same infamous display driver stopped responding warning. I have a Core i7 7700HQ with a GTX 1070 and 16gb RAM. I dont think anythings wrong with my pc because all other games run great on my machine without any crashes. I mean I play Red Dead Redemption 2 for hours and hours, not a single crash ever since Ive started playing it.

Having random crashes too. Returned to the game today after not having played it since the middle of December and had a crash within 15 mins. After that i played for around an hour with no crash.
GTX 1070 /w 460.79 driver (yes it's not the newest, but shouldn't matter since people are crashing with the latest hotfix driver).
In December i had my first few crashes with a driver from September. The most recent driver available back then did not fix the issue either.
Definitely a game/driver specific issue. Played tons of other games during christmas with absolutely zero issues. Before the first crashes in December i've also not had a single driver crash since Horizon Zero Dawn in August (which was known to have similar TDR/Timeout Display Recovery crashes).

New Drivers are crap and fixed nothing, also people are complaining about it on Geforce forums, anyhow, rolled back to driver 446.14 a while back and the game works flawlessly without any single TDR (Driver Crash), if you are on RTX 3000 series then you are out of luck.
Guys if you have multi-monitor setup even if the 2nd monitor is inactive but connected to the GPU, disconnect it and try. The nvidia drivers since 3000 series are confirmed to cause issues and random crashes with more than one monitor connected. I will be trying this and will report back.
I can confirm that disconnecting my 2nd monitor fixed the crashes for me. It's all related to your monitor(s) config and the new broken nvidia drivers since 456.xx. If you have more than one monitor connected then disconnect it and try. Can also happen if you have one high refresh rate monitor especially with G-Sync, if so, try to limit the refresh rate and disable G-Sync if you have it on to troubleshoot.
I reported all my findings to nvidia along with memory dumps and they said they will be looking into the issue.
I discovered this fix because I also had browser crashes while watching streams (Youtube etc..) and disconnecting my 2nd monitor fixed those as well, me and few other guys are investigating this on EVGA forums.
See my post here and all the ones after it:
People keep saying that 456.xx onwards drivers have been causing the crashes but I rolled back to the 446.14 drivers and I still had crashes. Can anyone whos currently using a 44x.xx driver guide me and tell me which driver is the most stable.

The crashing is so random. Sometimes I can play several hours in a row without crashing. And sometimes it crashes every 5 minutes. And it has nothing to do with hardware for me. Ubisoft connect is the culprit for me.
