Assassin's Creed III PC delay confirmed

Not really much to say here, except that previous rumors speculating that the PC version of Assassin's Creed III has been delayed are in fact true. While the specific rumored date of November 23 for the PC release - seen above in a leaked game cover - has not been confirmed, today at Comic-Con Ubisoft creative lead Alex Hutchinson mentioned the PC version will be available before Christmas and near the console release date.

Of course it's not surprising that Assassin's Creed III has been delayed for PC, because every other game in the series (and practically every Ubsioft game) has been delayed at some point.

Just remember guys: The developers worked hard on this game, and if you are a fan, pay them their respect and purchase the game. Even if you pirate it with a DRM free version, atleast purchase the game, and don't install that version. It is not their fault what the business portion of the company do, so don't hold it against them.

Heh, yeah they're working a new DRM or some stuff, wohooo, more crap installed with games - love it

Ubisoft did this with Ghost Recon: future Soldier. was supposed to be a constant internet connection to play. ends up, people can't even play the game. they tried to implement Anti-Aliasing and that's broken. I see an Ubisoft ship sinking in the distance

The delay is probably due to Ubisoft trying to design the next version of their incredibly draconian DRM. It should be interesting to see what they come up with. I bet it does nothing to stop pirates but is twice as invasive and cumbersome for customers as the last version.

That's probably some of it. But more likely is the reason that Ubisoft can't code a PC game worth crap. So they need extra time to make it work right, which if past history says anything (I'm looking at you Future Soldier), the game will be broken for awhile after release.

I agree with your assessment. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is the sloppiest console to PC port I have ever seen. to top that off,they screw up the 1.3 patch to where the game is really 1.2.xxxx and go for the input fixes but no game stability. now people have to what however later for patch 1.4 for game stability. bass ackwards

Actually you're both partly right.

AC:R's DRM wasn't nearly as nasty as say AC:B.

And yeah, they do seem to have serious problems with bugs in the Windows versions, some which never get resolved. Like the DLC for AC2 that removed all courtesans save mission specific ones from Firenze until after The Bonfire of the Vanities, when they should not have been removed until the rise of Savonarola at the beginning of that Sequence.

As long as I get to play it before December, 21 2012, I'm good.

Indeed. I'm planning on taking out a big loan a month before Dec 21 and buy a sports bike and supercar
