I thought that the release date for US was going to be Nov. 9th? ebgames has changed their release date to Nov. 26th.
Anyone knows for sure which date??

Well, Gamestop shows October 26, so obvisouly there was a typo or miscommunication somewhere. Hopefully its the EB site that is in error.

I pre-ordered my copy last Sunday (the 17th) at my EB in Boone, NC, and the pick-up date on my receipt says November 10th. If it changes they had **** well better call to tell me.

Now you know how we feel when it keeps happening to us in Europe http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Not a dig at you Tater but it keeps happening to Europeans.

Heheh. Yeah, I'd say release it as close to the same date globally as possible. A couple weeks is one thing, but a month? I hope that nov 26th was a typo, this is killing me, lol.

UBI could at least let us order it direct, then DL it as well as getting the disk when it shows up. Guess it wouldn't run without the disk, though.

I agree about the simultaneous release world wide.
I could not resist because some of your fellow countrymen have not been too polite when we have said WTF, along the lines of "suck it up chump". There is really no need these days for split release dates.

Sorry Barred if some of my countrymen made fools of themselves - I think most of us were sympethetic then and wished all of you had it too. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I don't think it was a smart move at all on Ubi's part to risk pissing off what is surely a number of their customers.

They don't fackn care about their customers. Remember SH2 and Destroyer Command?

For the longest I heard Nov. 9 was the U.S. release date, but now I hear of people seeing it in stores now and others quoting somewhat earlier release dates. I don't know what to think. I've not had the time to check my local venues to see if they have it.

Virga not your fault man http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
There are idiots every where, which is why I stopped posting on the IL2 forums a while back.

No publisher no matter the game can really excuse split releases these days even if it is something along the lines of VALVe's Steam. Even localisation and translations are done during the last few months of developement so that is not really an excuse.

I hope you all manage to get PF as soon as possible and the end of these split releases come to an end.

Peace.

I think UBI is finally doing the smart thing and releasing the game as soon as possible due to the piracy issue.

My guess is that it is still set for 10/26 (tuesday) and that the 11/26 (friday) is a typo or mixup on someones part. Also tuesday makes more sense for a day to release than a friday.

The Nov. 26 date that people have been talking about is from a typo in EB games computer systems. They meant Oct. 26th, not Nov. 26th.

Man oh man I hope so. Got really pissed when I saw 11/26 in the email they sent me yesterday.

Either way I started hunting the stores on the way home from work today.

UbiRazz says the 26th and I have faith!
