Ok, from what I can gather... It looks like there isn't gonna be a PC version of this game anymore. If you look at all the Assassin's creed webpages, you used to be able to see the PC DVD logo on the pages... NOW, the logo is nowhere to be seen. Can anyone confirm if this is because the PC version is canceled. If that is true... Then I believe game developers have truly abandoned the core of their market... A sad mistake.

I wouldn't go as far as to say they have abandoned their core market. I'd assume it's easier to release a game on PC than console too. If they do abandon PC, it would be for a good reason, and I'd guess because of piracy.

However, after watching the trailers this game sparked my interest and figured perhaps Ubisoft could make a comeback from a large kick-in-the-arse with the latest Tom Clancy games really lacking. I've noticed AC is missing from Ubi's PC list:
http://www.ubi.com/AU/Games/Info.aspx?pId=4488

So I've gott'a say I'm hurt and disappointed in Ubisoft, who are quickly falling off my favoured publishers list.

I suppose, in the event that Ubi do actually read this, I've give my two cents to the whole platform/support thing. People do take notice of publishers. In the past, I've always been eager to buy an Ubisoft or THQ game because I know that the game would be built and supported properly. I've always avoided EA because they don't respect their customers and their new games are merely a patch of the last game with the same title.

Unfortunately however, Ubi's last run with the PC market has lead to appalling support of their best games (ie, Rainbow Six Vegas) and are really letting us down. Meanwhile THQ are releasing better games and EA are actually earning some new respect (C&C3, done very well).

So to Ubi, you're starting to cut deep, guys.

I second that Nova... I've never heard words more true.

The number one game on my list since September last year has been Assassin's creed. I almost bought an Xbox 360 because of the game... But upon hearing that its coming to PC, I upgraded my system instead. Now I discover that it was probably for nothing. I really can't see myself playing this game on anything other than a PC. Its just not my style. I'm sure I speak for many people who are PC gamers. Prince of Persia was amazing on the PC, I couldn't put it down. Imagine what AC would be like?

Is this truly the last nail in the coffin for great PC game titles???

In most interviews and stuff where the game developers have talked about the different systems they have mostly been talking about ps3 and the 360 so I'm not shure. But I still think they're gonna release a pc version but that they might delay it a bit.

If I remember correctly, there never was a PC DVD logo.

omg I'm gonna cry if this game doesn't come out for pc =(

and I'll also hate ubi, not just for not releasing it for pc, but for promising to release it for pc and then cancelling.

Like ElKvass said, in the interviews there was mention of xbox360 and ps3 but no mention of pc. My question is, if they have decided not to do it for pc, then why keep us in suspense? Why not get it over with and tell us already. One thing that also worries me is that they will release a pc version that they don't really care about, a cheap, half-a....hearted port fraught with crashes, slow loads, bad graphics, and terrible, uncustomizable controls.

But anyway, I'll reserve judgement until we know for sure, I still like ubi =)

It's coming to PC. Don't worry about it, just because the game is normally mentioned coming to PS3 and XB360 that's just because it was originally developed for a console so they continue to speak in console terms. It's not because they're cancelling the PC version of the game.

If you were producing a game that was coming to PS3, 360, and PC would you talk in terms of console controls because that's something two of the systems have that are pretty similar, or would you talk using PC keys and leave the other two systems in the cold? You would talk in the console terms because it's just easier. Everyone chill.

I highly doubt the PC version would be bad, they have a sub-team which is polishing the PC version the same way they have a sub-team for PS3 and XB360.

Sidenote: If Assassins Creed didn't come to the computer that would not be the last nail in the coffin for great PC titles...

Double Sidenote: It seems as if whenever they don't talk about something enough people start getting fearful and claim that it's being cancelled. "I haven't seen Jade talking about the parkour lately... maybe they're cancelling it!!!11! OmgG!!1 I have to go make some threads and cause mass hysteria!"

Theres a big difference between parkour being canceled and the PC version of AC being Canceled. I'm just worried that this may be true... Would be nice if Ubi just let us know. Cause since the release of the new trailer/teaser, all I've seen is that AC is being released for PS3 and Xbox 360... no PC.

Couldn't have said it any better. Don't worry about it being cancelled as chewie also mentioned, ubi has a whole sub team working on the PC version.

I was just making a comment about people always fearing things for no reason. Don't worry the PC version will come out, it would be a terrible waste of money to not put it out on the PC seeing as how it's already been developed for it and it's in it's polishing stage.

I can't wait till people start saying "What?!?! The parkour gots canc3ll3d?!1?"

you mean you guys didn't trust the poll (that's probably never been updated)?

"What platform will you buy Assassin's Creed for?
Xbox 360
PLAYSTATION 3
PC"

There was something like that a bit ago. Called Ask a dev a question thread. No AC specific questions though. J and Miagi used to answer often, the thread hasn't been used in a while though... What a shame...
