Ubisoft delays Assassin’s Creed Unity to November 11
It looks like The latest Assassin’s Creed game will miss the original October release date. Then again, what would an Assassin’s Creed game be without a little delay right?. Earlier today Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released on November 11 in the US and on November 13 in EMEA.
According to the announcement, the two extra weeks will help ensure that the quality of the game meets fans’ – and the team’s – lofty expectations. This news has no impact on the company’s full year financial targets, which Ubisoft also confirms today.
“As we got close to the finish, we realized we were near the target but still needed a bit more time to hone some of the details to make sure Assassin’s Creed Unity is exceptional,” says Vincent Pontbriand, senior producer at Ubisoft. “We sincerely appreciate players’ commitment to the game and their patience. It’s just a couple more weeks. And it’s going to be worth it.”
The US release date for Assassin’s Creed Rogue remains unchanged (November 11). In EMEA territories, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will now release November 13, alongside Assassin’s Creed Unity.
