As unfortunate as it is, ubisoft isn't one for being kind to the PC crowd with their ports. They are top quality don't get me wrong, but they are gonna be loaded with a DRM (garunteed) and worst of all, we will probably get the game over a month late. This will be released on consoles December 5th (November 30th in Europe) but expect it to be around late January to early February before we finally get it on PC.
If this is the truth than Farcry for me hits a dangerous area, there are sooooooooooooooo many AMAZING games coming out spring of 2013, and if farcry isn't out till around then, i might be holding off on buying my copy till next years steam summer sale, get it for 50% off and upwards.
I am not being a pessimist, i am being a realist.
