So I recently started playing AC: Valhalla on my Series X. I transferred my old PS4 save via Ubisoft cloud and resumed playing after receiving update 1.1.1.
Sometimes - and so far only while I'm in the menu - the controller just disconnects. It'll just turn off and give me the "please reconnect your controller" pop-up.
The problem is that the controller won't just reconnect. I usually had to remove the batteries for the controller and console to resync.
The last time it happened - I just took a break of 5 minutes because I had to take a phone call - not even that worked. Neither did a cable connection or (obviously) the pairing buttons. I actually had to power cycle the console, forcing a reset via the power button to resync the controller.
It ONLY happens while playing Valhalla and in the 15 or so hours I've been playing on Series X has happened 4 or 5 times to me. In the dozens of hours of playing other games this issue didn't come up even once.
This is an absolute travesty and needs to be fixed immediately.

For me the controller disconnects from the console if I'm not pressing anything for about 30-60 seconds. So to prevent it I have to keep pressing buttons during cutscenes or if I need a quick break, I have to go back to the Xbox homepage. When it happens the only fix is to unplug my Xbox, and remove the controller batteries, it will then connect again.
I had this issue all the way through Valhalla and am posting this now because the same thing has just happened while playing the immortals - Fenyx rising demo, another Ubisoft game.
I'm playing on Xbox series X with the standard series X controller and haven't had this issue with any other games.

@beatdownxnoki Hello and thanks for reaching out to us in regards to this issue! I am very sorry for my delay and for any trouble that these controller disconnections have caused. This is currently under investigation, and we have a Megathread about this as well. I have a couple of questions that we have asked other players on that thread, if you would not mind providing your answers (unless you have provided them on that Megathread already). Then I will forward up your information to the Game team to be included with the investigation.
- Are you using the standard Xbox Series X controller?
- You mentioned it only happens in the main menu. Has this ever occurred during gameplay?
- Do you have another Xbox profile? If so, does the same issue occur for that profile?
