Ubisoft Denies Assassin’s Creed 3 PC Delay

Assertions that Assassin’s Creed 3‘s PC launch will be delayed were allegedly incorrect. Speaking at a San Diego Comic-Con panel, Ubisoft creative lead Alex Hutchinson said that the PC version would release after the scheduled October 30th launch date for consoles, but when reached for comment, a Ubisoft spokesman has since reported that this information is incorrect. Assassin’s Creed 3 for PC is still slated for an October 30th release.

Whether the Hutchinson’s claim was due to miscommunication, human error, or an unintended leak remains unknown. If is not uncommon for Ubisoft to delay the PC release of its titles, with the PC version of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations delayed by half a month and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood released months after its console version.

The better question isn’t whether it’ll be delayed, but whether we PC gamers want an inferior port of the game that will be bridled with Always Online DRM requirements.

Don’t care, don’t want it. Ubisoft is screwing pc users over so bad with this one, don’t know if or when I’ll buy another Ubi game.

I just got an email from Amazon (11 Aug) where much unloved PC Game Pub/Dev UbiSoft has changed the October release date for PC to 23rd November keeping the outdated console versions the same. Considering this was expected though a spokesman have denied there will be such of a delay.
I’m considering I should pirate this game then perhaps pay for it when it comes down dirt cheap on Steam. They are the biggest bullshiiiters in the history of game pubs/devs. Can you see why people pirate games? For the companies sake they better have next-gen API and exclusive PC features with the delayed release (DirectX 11… tessellation… hbao, nVidia Phsyx etc) otherwise I will cancel my pre-order then I will wait till I can buy it cheap – after I play it free first!….Fk U-bisoft!
