A lot of great titles will be released this October but unfortunately Assassin’s Creed Unity is not going to be one of them. Ubisoft confirmed today that the release of this title has been delayed by two weeks. The title will now be released alongside Assassin’s Creed Rouge which is only meant for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
Ubisoft has already said multiple times in the past that they have built this new Assassin’s Creed from the ground up. However in the final push to ship the game on its intended release days, lots of subtle details have added up to create hurdles and pitfalls that need to be addressed before the game can be shipped.
Vincent Pontbriand, senior product of Assassin’s Creed Unity, says that because this is a fully next-gen game, “it requires a lot of work, a lot of production, and a lot of learning.” He says that while Ubisoft might be close to the finish line, it “not quite there yet.”
The delay in this title’s release is to ensure that players get the user experience they expect from a AC title that has been developed from the ground up with particular focus on next-gen consoles.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will now be released in the U.S. on November 11th, and in EMEA regions on November 13th.
