Could be a mechanical issue. Many times print shifts like that are due to skipping motors, loose screws, or bad tension on the belts

also can be cause by your print curling and warping, over extrusion or anything else that will cause the nozzle to catch on the print as its whizzing around. it doesnt take much to knock the nozzle and cause some skipped steps.
