I sent Mr_Shade a PM about this, he said he would try and find something out, but these things take time to be communicated to Valve and back I assume.

Hi guys,


I'm sorry but I have no news about this - have you thought of contacting Steam and asking ? - it can sometimes be quicker for a customer to ask - since I have to go through a lot more hoops.

Trust me Shade Steam support is ultra slow. They will answer after 3-4 days or even 7. :D It will be way quicker if you ask Ubi guys :D

I have just received a reply from Steam about this problem:

Hello,

A staff member has replied to your question:

looks like they don't want to share what's wrong, if anything :(

That's a pretty arrogant answer. It's like when Rockstar are saying that they have no information whether or not there will be a PC version of GTA V or not. How hard is it to give people a yes or a no? I'm not even British, but your situation here really p*sses me off!

i caved and ordered from GMG. they have a 30% off code so it was hard to pass up. i have only ever ordered from steam, or retail games that activate on steam, but they have dropped the ball on this one so im going for the better deal

I ordered a physical standard edition from Amazon, I was looking at the GMG one to but decided I'd like a boxed product to add to my shelf :p

I'll just buy the season pass separately from the ubishop before christmas some time. A shame Steam couldn't sort stuff out earlier.

I'm very curious about this whole ordeal as well. I have my reasons to buy the Assassin's Creed games from steam, and the lack of any news about it, 3 days away from launch is really annoying. Does anyone have any new details they can share on this?
