From Dust PC Version Delayed

Ubisoft has pushed back the release date for the PC version of From Dust to August 17. Those of you who were hoping to play on PC this Wednesday will have to wait another month.

Ubisoft pulled a similar trick with Call of Juarez, delaying the PC version from July to September. Rock, Paper Shotgun asked Ubisoft why this keeps happening to their PC games, to which they replied:

Our teams work hard to ensure that all versions of our games achieve a level of polish and quality that our customers will appreciate. The development team needed a little more time to focus on the PC version [of Call of Juarez], so we adjusted the date accordingly.

Is that really the reason? It didn’t have to do with piracy? As a PC gamer, I have absolutely no issue with being allowed to play a game only a month after its console counterparts if it’s meant as a countermeasure to piracy — but at least tell it to me straight. Don’t push back the release date after pre-orders have already gone through.
