I hate to be the doomsayer, bringing up the inevitable topic, but please tell me I'm not the only person to notice the complete lack of of any mention of the PC version in the new trailer. Or is it just in the North America version I've got?

And I have looked for other threads on this, so if I missed them, sorry. I've put this here on the console side as well in case any of the console or multi-platform players know anything.

Also the Twitter wallpaper you get, has no PC version on it...

It should come to no surprise to you guys considering the pc versions never come out on the same day as console versions. I'm sure they'll announce it soon.

Exactly I dont remember them saying that from now on we`ll release all 3 versions on the same date..
and If Revelations is anything to go by, then a few days shouldnt really hurt, right ?

Actually they have been claiming exactly that.

It's no suprise, sure, just irritating in its inevitability. As long as it's not ages though, I daresay I'll survive.

Hmm...
Ok then.. I stand corrected..

The fact that it looks as though they may well not.

However, the point of my OP was to see if anyone else knew anything else to confirm or deny this. Once we know, then we can start complaining...

there's no way to confirm or deny this now because Ubisoft usually waits until "one week" before the release date to tell the PC community they'll need to wait a little longer to play the game...

Be a pity if they do, especially since they've done this thing of having a finished build a matter of months before release, in order to effectively release AC3.1 - if they can do that, you'd have thought they'd have the PC version ready in time for once. After all, they got it down to two weeks on ACR, and that only had a year's development.

Seeing as the game has a couple of weeks to be finished 100% and the rest of the year will be left for Polishing and bug annihilation, I`d say that there is a pretty good chance that the PC version will be released on time..

I have no info on any delays as of yet.. However it's important to note that the PC release date has yet to be confirmed officially..


If people are screaming about delays before they even happen, or a release date is set, then I can't comment on that..

You can't delay something which does not have a release date set yet.. However much you would like to.


However the UK teaser clearly shows all versions are being released.

I really feel your pain, I truly hope hope that ALL PC and console gamers get to play the game at the same time this year

This is the reason I haven't pre-ordered the game yet. I'm 99% sure the PC version will be late again as it always has been, and that we won't hear about it officially until maybe 2 weeks before the console release. They can keep swearing up and down that all three versions will be released at the same time but I'm not holding my breath. At least this time they're covering their bases by saying the PC release date is yet to be confirmed (even though it contradicts what they previously said). If the game has to be delayed to smooth out some bugs, I'm willing to wait, I just want them to be upfront about it.

That was kinda my point as well - I didn't want to be the doomsayer, but in the past it's always been little clues like this that start to creep out and hint at the the delay that follows.

I can accept if the delay is kept to revelations level; the amount of delay PC Brotherhood got was simply too much.

this will probably be the case and they know that, then why they can't tell us since day 1 that the game will be delayed and if possible give us a solid date? Someone should say to whoever make this decision that know beforehand that the game will be delayed is not worse than have our hopes of play the game at the same date as everyone crushed two weeks before its release (even if for a small time), I wonder if they already asked themselves if this lack of transparency doesn't affect their other titles, because I can bet this certainly happens, and guess what, AC won't live forever...

what bothers me is not the fact the game will be delayed, I hate this but their lack of transparency regarding this situation is far worse, say that they don't have an official date for the release of the PC version doesn't help more than discover two weeks before the release that the same won't happen at the same date for the PC version, people will assume until they finally decide to tell us when the game will finally be released that it'll be released at the same day as the console version, and the same damage to their image will be done when this won't happen...

The release date is still some time away, so they hope to hit a certain date, however if they announce a date, and are forced to miss it due to some unforeseen reason, people will moan..

Its best to wait until they are 100% sure of hitting a date, before they announce..

All of the UK advertising has stated that the PC version release date is to be confirmed, so hopefully people are reading that..

I know many people are waiting, however the PC version is coming, just at present there's no date set, due to them wanting to make sure the PC version is the best they can make.

CBA to read through the whole thread, but at the end of the teaser in the small print it said something like PC date not confirmed or something
