While Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag will be launched on multiple platforms such as the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Wii U, gamers on the PC will be disappointed to learn that the game will not see a launch on the PC the same time as consoles as it has been delayed by a few weeks. This is according to Ubisoft who confirmed the delay, although they did not state their reasons why. According to Ashraf Ismail, the game’s director, “We’re working hard on the PC version. It’s one of the main platforms we work on in the office. For our PC fans, don’t worry. The game on PC looks phenomenal.”
This is not the first time Ubisoft has delayed games for the PC as they have done so with Assassin’s Creed 3 as well. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is expected to be released in October and will also be compatible with next-gen consoles, so we guess PC gamers hoping to get their hands on the game will most likely see it come November or even December, hopefully at the very least by the end of 2013. No specific dates have been given but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information anyway.
