So I live in calgary, I called EB games and Walmart electronics, and the *******s say they don't have the game in shipment yet until they get it which is tomorrow but I keep reading people in canada have already found stores that have the game.

So tell me this, why is a Canadian company like Ubisoft Montreal not shipping to us canadians first? Do they really hate us? I mean come, we're your next door neighbours and them damn sweds have gotten their game already, what about us? I is so disappointed with their shipping issues, why God, why? Oh my.

Ubisoft is from france and just has a studio in Montreal so they are actualy a french company not canadian

Dear Deryell,

Ubisoft do not hate Canada or anywhere else for that matter, even if the studio is based in Canada (Head Office is based in France http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif). Every region has its own specific release date attached and Ubisoft stick by that. It is so we can monitor deliveries and make sure each region gets sufficient copies to fulfill pre-orders. There will be problems from time to time and we try to keep on top of these as much as possible, but some things just slip through.

It won't be long and everyone will be playing the game. Dress up like Altair run around a bit, it may take your mind off it for a while. Worked for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Screw that noise.

What was with the false release dates then? I first read it was to be released on the 13th of November, now they tell me 14th, and stores tell me 15th. Good. Game.
