Is there any game these days that doesn’t get delayed? It seems all the titles on our radar right now, from The Witcher 3 to The Division to Batman: Arkham Knight are getting pushed back faster than you can say “pre-order”.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity is the latest in line to face a delay; Ubisoft confirmed this afternoon that the previous October 28th release date would no longer be kept to. The good news is that the delay will be significantly less than we’ve seen for several titles this year, but it does also mean you’ll have to wait until November to get your hands on this title…
Fortunately, the delay is just two weeks, meaning you’ll be able to grab Assassin’s Creed: Unity from the shelves on November 11th in the USA and on 13th November in other territories. This means this next-gen and PC game will launch the same day as last-gen nautical adventure Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Hopefully those extra two weeks can add some additional polish and iron out any bugs or optimisation issues.
"As we got close to the finish, we realized we were near the target but still needed a bit more time to hone some of the details to make sure Assassin's Creed Unity is exceptional," said senior producer Vincent Pontbriand, "We sincerely appreciate players' commitment to the game and their patience. It's just a couple more weeks. And it's going to be worth it."
What do you think of Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s delay? Does the extra two weeks bother you, or will this result is a slicker and more bug-free experience for us all? Let us know what you think.
