As PC Games reports from the Gamescom.

The PC version will be delayed for an unspecified amount of time.

Fantastic, Ubisoft. As if you hadn't angered the PC gaming community enough already.

Same amount of time as ACII no doubt, roll of February... March, whenever the hell it was lol

Well I don't think Amazon would put a random date for no reason. Ubisoft probably told them to and now they are saying indefinite so people think its probably a short delay (not four months)

Are you even using your head? Why would they tell ONE online retailer instead of making an announcement so EVERYBODY(the people who BUY it in the 1st place)can know? Thats just a placeholder date, even GS still has 11/16/2010 for pre-orders because they don't know either.

Look I get you but look how long assassins creed 2 was delayed for. I am just expecting the same thing. I really wouldn't be surprised if it was a January or February release. What are you expecting? a week delay?

Converting a game to PC is a lengthy and difficult process. The buttons have to be able to be customized, feedback from players is taken in and you already got the DLC for free in AC2.

Yeah Phil, us PC players have it so good. I mean, hey it takes a long time to stuff up the graphics that badly, and make a game so buggy that no one can play it. Yeah, that takes time.

Come to think of it, i'm still waiting for those extra Templar lairs.

They are probably upgrading and implementing their brilliant anti-hacker internet connection crap.

I expected this. But I'm still bloody ****ed off. And if it's another 5 months like AC2, well, i have other games the makers of which don't seem to have a problem releasing on all platforms at the same time, that i will buy instead.

Please excuse my sarcasm in this reply. I just can't stand big company bulldust.

What are you talking about? Just look at other developers games like Just cause 2 or Metro 2033. The same release dates for pc as well as consoles and despite that the pc versions look incomparable to the console ones. I wouldnt object if they postponed the pc version if it had its quality.

Why is every1 calling AC3?

Game developers never mentioned it being AC3 it was a continuation of AC2..

Last time i check it said Assassins Creed: Brotherhood. not Assassins Creed 3.


Why is every1 surprised? i just hope the delay is for a nice finished polish product instead of it being a disappointment like AC and AC2 for pc owners..

You're as likely to get an answer from Ubisoft about that as you are a dose of the clap off a Nun.

We could speculate all day long but in the end all we can do is wait, although it's probably something to do with money lol

PC games are not like Console titles.. each PC it's installed on will be slightly different.. with different hardware, software etc.

So testing the game on many different configurations can take a lot longer.. since what works on my PC, may crash on someone else's.

With consoles, if it works on one, it works on them all..


That's my personal opinion on it.. PC titles can take longer.. it's just the normal development cycle of it.

And no.. it does not mean that when the PC title is released, will be perfect and have no bugs or issues, since they can happen to any game.

Umm, no there aren't... If other big companies release games for the PC, they always release them with the console versions, sometimes with minor delays. They either release them with the consoles, or they don't release them for PC at all...
I'm not saying, that Ubi shouldn't release the game for PC, it's just that they should make up their damn minds... Either release it, or don't...

ok yea i understand what your saying Shade. Seeing as people can update their PC as a when they like each one is a different spec as you say. So i spose they have to cover every spec of PC that people may have with all the different settings harsh that must take them ages.

The answer is Piracy. When Assassin's Creed was originally released it was the most illegally downloaded game of the year. They delayed Assassin's Creed 2 for PC so they had just enough time to make plenty of money from the console versions before the inevitable piracy of the game was made. Need proof? They sure as hell didn't create the 24/7 internet connected DRM to make gamers happy....

Ye well they obviously need time to optimize the PC version, but for once I "wouldn't mind" these optimizations including a 16:10 resolution ratio. DX10 option would be awesome as well - though that would probbably take too much time and is definitely not simple.

On a related note, if they actually decided to exclude a new/updated DRM version, that would be brilliant as well xD. Come to think of it, just ditch the DRM altogether, not trying to "implement" a DRM discussion to the thread, but didn't Ubi mostly need that extra developing time only to make it happen in the first place?

P.S. Ow, right, didn't see someone had "dropped the D bomb" already, xD aight fair enouff.

As complex as the process can be which i fully understand it takes vagarious time and hours making sure the game is compatible on most pc systems. It still feels like its a poor excuse as other gaming companies dont delay their product for those obvious reasons. or if they do it certainly isnt delayed for such an extended time. I hope that this time delayed will provide a more polished game to the previous 2..

@ Zokono i can relate to what ur saying but i doubt thats a reason why they trying to prevent piracy... Piracy is there if the game is delayed after the console release ur during simultaneous system releases. It would be actually at their best interest to release all platforms like most gaming companies to prevent more pirated versions. an sell asap.... ppl generally like to wait after the console release before buying it. and if the game isnt worth its value then ppl will use pirated versions. after playing on console and seeing the pc release isnt that much of a great port..

These past few years ports from consoles to pc have been revolting... it either works or doesnt. :/

People intending to Pirate a game won't go out and buy it even if they discover what a great game it is. Once a Pirate, always a Pirate.

The real truth of the matter is no one will ever completely stop Piracy and anyone that thinks they can are fools. Ubisoft are smart enough to know this fact and have used it to their advantage. If all three versions were released at the same time, people could instantly download the PC version and ignore console versions (except for the console only gamers). When they only released the console versions, there was only one easy choice to play Assassin's Creed 2 which was to buy the game, which in turn gave them enough time to make the most of the profit until the PC version came out.

I'm not suggesting that this was the sole reason for delaying Assassin's Creed 2 & Brotherhood but to me it seems a pretty logical reason considering the PC version of Assassin's Creed 2 did not contain much more than the console releases, certainly not enough to warrant a 4 month wait. To prevent a war of some kind I will no longer post in this thread, I just wanted to voice my opinion.

I thought the PC version was a great package.. had all of the DLC from console versions?

I personally didn't mind waiting for it, since it was a good value package.

It was slightly disappointing to see a lot of people having trouble running the game, when my 'cheap and cheerful' PC ran it perfectly http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I hope any delay in the PC version of ACB is not quite as long.. I am however concerned about certain reports of 'postponed indefinitely' so I am chasing that up - but what with Gamescom running at the moment, it's taking some time..
If we could steer the conversation away from piracy etc, since it's only a matter of time before a troll comes along and posts:

and I will have to lock the thread..

But their DRM is almost bulletproof. They tested it out 3 times on major titles and 2/3 took long as hell to hack. The one failure was splinter cell because it used identical drm method as AC2 but Prince of Persia changed it and took long to hack. So I don't understand why they have to delay it. All they have to do is change the DRM a little and it will take almost a month to hack. I pre ordered the game for PC but now I might regret it.

Another point is this game has multiplayer. Even if it was hacked people who downloaded it illegally would miss out and many would buy the game. Multiplayer also make ACB a hyped game so if the hype runs out by the time the PC version is released then its not gonna sell well for PC.

What might happen next?
Ubisoft blames it on Piracy.


Bottom line is, Ubisoft should delay it maybe 2 weeks max and it will be acceptable. I am not a programmer but I don't think it will take a month or more to implement DRM.

Umm I guess it's true that if one's a pirate, one probbably doesn't buy most games one wants to play.

Just a warning for what is about to be written, this is just my opinion ^^.

<span class="ev_code_RED">[Edit: Please do not post advocating illegal activities such as downloading illegal copies of games.]</span>


People always want it the easy way, the cheap way. "If one can, one does". When you cheat in a test, don't return the excess difference, sell things to someone for more than they're really worth, lie to someone,... People do it, and then apply one, and most widely used excuse ever - "it's not gonna hurt anyone". Now I certainly am not saying that this excuse is a valid one, it definitely is NOT a good point, but in the end... Why not just let people do it? Obviously take some precautions, but don't overdo it - I mean if you see a shoplifter, and you happen to work at the store, you're not just gna stand and watch, but if you ie. put up cameras and don't see a thief that just got away with something, hell let him have it. I mean the alternative is, u could set up security guards at the enterances, "feeling everyone up". That would be annoying wouldn't it? Sounds like... I dunno, a DRM?

Returning to my starting statement - no I did not pirate ac2, interestingly. I could, but I didn't. I obviously own a PC - only the PC (and a Wii, but that's a different thing entirely http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ). It's a single player game, so why didn't I pirate it? The answer is pretty simple - I WANTED to buy it. Basically, some people will want to buy a certain game, some won't. And for the point's sake, let's not include the people that wouldn't want to play that certain game. The ones that won't want to buy it, will pirate it, and won't care how long it'll take "the scene" to do it. The ones that'll want to buy it, will buy it, regardless of the fact that there is a possibility, the game has already been cracked. That is how it should be. So instead of investing in another "Arizonian" DRM, why not just make the game an awesome experience? I mean look at AC1 - it's one of the most if not the most pirated game ever right? Well in the end Ubisoft got to sell over 8 million copies - did they not make enough profit? A comparative logic would be that because of the DRM, they actually made LESS money, than they could, not only from the sales - slightly dropping because of its method, but also from the fact that they delayed the game AND additionally invested in a "feature". But hey that's only my opinion =).

Protect the game, run after the guy u see is walking out of your store with your goods, but don't be overly protective, as it might be more hurtful than anything else - to all.

in the end, we might get the game sooner, and more people may want to buy the game :P. It's all you want - more sales. That's all you can hope for.

Ofc there's a third version of how people react - people who think everything above is simply unacceptable. Those people are in my opinion too constricted by morale, that was supposed to make our lives easier and more symbiotic. Now how is feeling pressire over how someone got a certain game making your life easier and/or more symbiotic?

Always hate the PC delays(oh btw i'm new here). Sure I understand that PCs have a variety of Hard/soft - ware and also they have to put their DRM(*sigh), any1 else prefer Mouse+KB instead of Controller?
My bro DOES own a PS3 but i just can't play with the controller.

Yeah, I never really liked controllers either. You're restricted to using your thumbs (and occasionally index fingers) and you just can't beat the flexibility & precision of a mouse.

Well, i guess i kinda saw this coming.

I guess i'll have to ask my brother to order the Codex edition for my birthday (in febuary) instead of xmas.

Personally, i think they should release the pc verion first and then convert the code for use on 360 and ps3, afterall, they use PCs to MAKE the game, they use PCs to TEST during development, so the PC version is practically ready when the console versions are, if not before.

It couldn't (and shouldn't) have taken them 4 months to impliment the DRM protection for AC2,

Not true. Without talking too much about piracy (I enjoy these forums too much to get banned) I aquired a copy of AC, 2 years after it was released (so, last year.)
I finished it, and that was that.
However, that sparked my love of the AC series, so I went and pre-orderd AC2 WE. Got that, played it, loved it. So insted of just buying bog standard AC2, Ubi made more money in that respect.
But on top of that, I also went slightly overboard, as I not only bought AC steelbook, I bought the AC tin, as well as lots of merch.
So, thats me being a pirate (for this particular game) converting to a honest buyer http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now, as for the delay, I cant say it bothered me too much. Since I was getting the game for christmas, I was slightly miffed that my mates would have it before me, and would not only know what happens, but would have had a good time to play the MP and practice.
Now that it is delayed, Im in with more of a chance http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Also, as a side note, since the MP is one of the main reasons to buy the game, and it is online, that should stop pirates. Take COD for example. It has a story, but people buy it for the MP. But if you pirate the game, you cant play MP ( or only on limited servers) so its a major deterrant for pirates http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

just an update if people are still interested..

At present there is still a PC version coming, so disregard the news item and the 'indefinitely delayed' - it's still coming out..

Just at the present moment, we don't have a fixed date.. so I will once again remind people that any dates seen on retailers websites, may not be correct.

And I will remind people yet again, to keep away from talk of piracy.

That's a pretty harsh way to say it but no one was promoting illegal activity so IDK what the problem is. We can talk about piracy but we can't tell anyone to go get an illegal copy of an ubisoft game.

This is the part of the terms of use

# Upload or distribute any software or content that you do not own or have permission to freely distribute.
# Promote or encourage any illegal activity including hacking, cracking or distribution of counterfeit software.

No one was doing any of that.

Anyways lets just hope there is no delay. BTW there is no demo for pc anyways so whoever falls for that stuff needs to learn the hard way.

Because that sort of thing usually requires using a 3rd party Age Verification Site, which usually rely on credit card information to prove how old you are. And if Ubisoft started doing that, forcing people to pay and give out information they don't want to give, then membership for these forums would drop like Ezio's targets.

AC2 Console release was November last year. PC release was March this year. 4 months after the console release.

So we could be looking at March next year for ACB for PC, at the latest, January at the earliest.

Yep, and good on Shade for keeping us in the loop. Long may it continue.

Ultimately the forum managers can do very little about any delays, and the moderators nothing (apart from share our impatience). Maybe some posters need to realise that any anger should be directed at Ubi rather than at the far more convenient but inappropriate target of the forum managers/moderators.

Hey-just had to add my two cents in. One, it really sucks that Ubisoft is delaying the PC version of ACB. It's pretty stupid, too, as by doing so they're not maximizing profit or anything, they're just making PC gamers angry.

Now, that being said, I wouldn't count PC pre-orders out just yet. At least, I won't cancel mine, because I'm an optimist, and my order info still says I'll get mine in November. Really, no one knows when the PC pre-orders will come out.

Just because you pre-ordered the game doesn't mean you'll get it early, at least, you won't get it in november, you'll most likely get it around about lete febuary.

All a pre-order really is, is a reservation on an item, a garruntee if you will, that you will get what you ordered, and you don't have to worry about rushing to the store and picking up one.

There have been ocasions where I've pre-ordered things (mainly books) and they've arrived a few days before the official release date, but honestly, those of you who are hoping to recieve your PC pre-oders this side of January 1st 2011, don't hold your breath.

and Atkamon, where did he say it hadn't been officially delayed, I thought it had been, I was pretty sure i read that article/press-release on gametrailers right.

Amen, preach, and pass the bible. This post is one hundred percent correct. If porting a console game was SO hard, then EVERY game company would delay the PC version. But they don't. Eidos, DICE, SEGA, and Infinity Ward always manage to release their PC offerings at the same time as their console offerings. Heck, even Ubisoft sometimes releases some of their PC offerings on time. It's only the Assasin's Creed team which continually delays the PC release of their games. Why do they do it? I know of three possible reasons:

A. The AC team has crappy console-to-PC people(probably not likely).

B. The AC team thinks PC gaming is on it's way out.(this is possible, but hopefully not likely).

C.The AC team is delaying the PC release because they're afraid of piracy and they want to maximize profit(this is probably the likeliest answer).



Both B and C are possible reasons for the AC team's THIRD PC delay. However, neither reasons are really...erm, well informed. Despite what many people on here think, PC gaming is a growing industry. It is set to be make more money than either the XBOX, PSE, or Wii by 2012.
So if the AC team is willingly neglecting PC gaming, they do so at their own peril.

The second reason is equally foolish. I happen to know that AC2 is an extremely pirated game(unfortunately). There are dozens of thieves who downloaded the game illegaly, despite the DRM. Not only that, but I also know that AC2 didn't sell as many copies for the PC ,as it did for the consoles. This is because PC gamers were angered by the delay, and many more lost interest and refused to buy the game. The same thing will happen with Brotherhood. As with AC2, Ubisoft would have been better off just releasing the PC version along with the Console versions, and making money on three platforms at the same time. Instead they decided to make money on two platforms and alienate a third.

NightmareGK13
09-17-2010, 07:05 PM
still don't find this to be reasonable

they knew there would be issues porting the game over to pc
still this is stupid, they should on this in advance

also
i don't see another game being delayed for the pc that releases at the same time for the consoles

e.g. mafia 2 was released for xbox360, ps3 and pc at the same time, they didn't delay it because they had issues with whatever, they know how to work properly

same thing happened with bioshock and the list goes on
it doesn't make any sense to delay a game for one gaming platform that should be easier to program or at least easier than the consoles
bayonetta was harder for the ps3 than the xbox

Firstly this is my first post so HI.
Right now down to the subject in hand.

Come on UBI another month on month delay is just taking the michael, As someone else said this is the third time now and its getting beyond a joke.

I'll be honest everytime I see that damn PS3 advert I honestly see the UBI team laughing at me whilst giving me the finger in my minds eye.
I mean how or why can they find it so hard to release on ALL platforms at the same time, Almost no other gaming companies have problems with it.

Some are blaming Pirates, Well that sounds like a big smokescreen of BS to me.


Others will say 'but you will get all the DLC for free' well that may be true but will it actually be complete this time or am I going to be stuck on %97.18 when they get bored and decide they wont actually give us all the content http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

Seriously MR_Shade There are a few unhappy customers about this as its obvious UBI class PC users as the poop on their shoes and its put of order.

People who say that crap make me imagine them as people who would go past somebody stuck in traffic and say "buy a bicycle instead". It's stupid

Then don't be a hypocrite and use the word "downgrade" to insult people who use consoles.

Not being a hypocrite, just being honest.

You can do a lot more with a PC than you can with a console, hence it would be a downgrade because a PC has far more functionality. The same way a car is more useful to somebody than a bicycle, you can do far more with a car than you can with a bicycle. It's just a simple fact, nothing about being a hypocrite at all!

Instead of being overly defensive, why not go calm down and relax a little?

P.S: i'm being sincere

Then Complain when the game comes out. I fail to see the logic in all you pc gamers. So exactly which Console did you make this post on then or did you post it on a computer that runs on bobbins?
If you want to blow 200/300 go right ahead, I would rather spend that money on making my machine the Dogs that shouldn't mean I have to wait 2/3/4 months on a game you have already probably completed,Its clear though that UBI couldn't give a rats arse about PC players as there current/previous record shows.

Why would people downgrade to a console? No game is worth playing at the inferior image quality levels the consoles have to offer.

It's not hypocritical to call a spade a spade. The consoles do not have the ability to play games with 16x anisotropic filtering, 8x antialiasing @ 1920x1200. That's just a fact.

I just checked on game-stop and they said the release date for AC:B is gonna be the 22nd of February.

Ubisoft thinks that if they release it for the PC then we would be less likely to torrent it, but what they don't realize is that we can torrent it for another station and get an emulator. Not really true for xbox 360 or PS3 (very difficult) but still we could have other systems.
