Big Surprise: Ubisoft Delays Assassin’s Creed: Revelations PC Release
Feels like Ubisoft is just screwing with us now, doesn’t it?
Yup, just like every major release the company has had for the last, I dunno, several months? Ubisoft is delaying the release of the PC version of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. Eurogamer is reporting that, after scouring Ubisoft’s Czech Facebook page, it has discovered that the new release date will be Dec. 2, 2011, while the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will still pop up on store shelves on Nov. 15, as planned.
Ubisoft is making this a habit, and being a repeat offender, it doesn’t seem like we’re getting anything positive for being made to wait. It previously delayed PC versions of both Driver: San Francisco and From Dust, both by roughly the same amount of time as AC:R is being released. Perhaps between 15 and 30 days is how long it takes for Ubisoft to install some really offensive digital rights management software, deny it’s being done, create a total PR debacle and then remove the DRM.
