Ubisoft doesn’t have an especially good track record when it comes to getting its games out on PC day-and-date with console releases, and it looks like that isn’t set to change with the release of Assassin’s Creed III.
According to a report from Eurogamer, the PC version of Assassin’s Creed III won’t be releasing alongside the console versions on October 30. Instead, the report says that Assassin’s Creed III won’t make it to the PC until November at the earliest.
It should be pointed out that this is just a rumor–for now. Eurogamer noticed the date in a promotional image sent from an anonymous source, but Ubisoft declined to confirm the November Assassin’s Creed III PC release date. Joystiq reached out to Ubisoft for comment on the matter, and received a standard “we don’t comment on rumors” response from the company’s PR team.
There aren’t a great many mutli-platform Ubisoft titles that haven’t been delayed on the PC, so I’m going to go ahead and file this rumor under the believable sort. Still, you should hold out for official word from Ubisoft before you get too sour.
Are you looking forward to Assassin’s Creed III? Will you be getting it on PC, PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360?
