ubi.com/NO (The official Norwegian version of Ubisoft' s website) lists Assassins Creed as being released September 28th, this year. Is this official enough for this forum or might I be banned...?

so if it was on the Norwegian one, why not this one? Assasin's Creed was to be released in September, but i would have thought that it would have been said on this forum before, no?

Here's the link btw:

I have no idea, Tirinel, why this info hasn't reached this forum before I brought it here. We Norwegians are a trustworthy bunch of people, so I can't imagine the Norwegian Ubi-crew posting this info without being absolutely certain of it's authenticity...

This release date has floated around before, for the same reasons. I can't say it's right or wrong, but I'm pretty sure this thread will be closed.

Information from the gaming industry has recently been published in Scandinavia first, as was the case with the Finnish magazine's article about Splinter Cell 5, which became widely debated at the Splinter Cell forum. Thus it isn't very surprising that official info on Assassin's Creed reaches Norway before the rest of the world.

Good point indeed mr. Maximus! I really don't think we should be taking stick for being at the forefront of the gaming industry...cheers mate!

I remember that I went to gamestop not to long ago and the people there showed me that it was coming out sept. 25th. hmmm... The two dates are only 3 days apart so I guess we can assume that Assassins Creed will come out some time late september http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I suppose its official. It IS on the ubisoft website (albeit for a different language).

//25th is a tuesday, and a friend of mine who works at gamestop confirmed that date. They could both still be accurate though what with that coming out on different days in different continents and stuff.

Tuesday? Not bad, as that is the easiest date for me to get it....

Ha! If Ubi is releasing Assassin's Creed on September 25, they must have a whole lot of faith in the game, to compete with this behemoth: Halo 3 (http://www.slashgear.com/halo-3-gets-a-released-date-165296.php)

Well they could be putting out these two large following games so that they can get a whole bunch sold, and re-stock for the Holiday shoppers so they have enough copies. It would also make room for other smaller games to have a larger sale point if the two biggest games were out of the way.

Meh... Halo.... I'll be playing Crysis and Half Life 2: Episode 2 instead. Crysis and AC will be dominating my late fall.

I'm sorry, I just don't see the huge interest in Halo. It only seems to be an OK first person shooter.

halo and AC arent really competing titles so mos people will either buy both or one or the other but ya my friend works at EB and he said end of sept like all else.

Halo fell off my radar when it was only Xbox, it killed me for the pc, but stuff behemoth they lost themselves a customer! and it was ok, it was never "the best game of all time ever" not even "the almost alright game of all time ever" it was just a fps that was on a new platform and looked sweet for the things at the time, halo 2 was not a big enough leap, and halo 3... i dont even care any more, and i wont until they get to halo 26 then maybe...just maybe, i will think they must be doing something right!

why is everyone picking on the halo series??

They are good games and halo 2 still have stunning visuals. However it is kind of booring after you've played it too long.

But on the posts REAL subject I've known that for 2 weeks or so. The swedish ubi Ubi.com/SE (http://www.ubi.com/SE/Games/Info.aspx?pId=5178)posted like in the middle of april that the release date was sept 07.
Thought everyone else knew......

However on the UKs ubi Ubi.com/UK (http://www.ubi.com/UK/Games/Info.aspx?pId=4488)it only says 07.........

Shouldn't they update all the nations sites at once on these things?

On Spain's and Finland's sites it says September.

And also Denmarks says the 28th September.
Which makes sense as games in Europe come out on Friday's mostly.

This thread can stay open momentarily as it is looking at different ubisoft stated possible release dates worldwide.
It will also keep speculations about it under one roof and prevent all other similar threads to exist.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It definitely is...glad I wasn't banned because of this tiny piece of what I thought was fairly interesting info.

Man, I'm looking forward to September, barring any unforeseen delays of course...
