Bad news for PC gamers who have been waiting for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood to release this year. Ubisoft’s killer (pun intended) game won’t be seeing the light of day until Q1 2011. The company made the announcement this morning, along with a solid confirmation of an October 4 start date for the European multiplayer beta on the PlayStation 3; the North American beta is set to begin next week, September 13.
Now, now, PC gamers – there’s no need to fret and get all antsy about the push. I mean, sure, the first two games were also thwarted back a couple of months while your console competitors rejoiced at their earlier release dates, but it’s far better than having to deal with Ubisoft’s godforsaken DRM issue that has been plaguing PC gamers for quite a while now. Hopefully, with this delay, Ubifost can iron out the issues that they’ve been having on the PC for the past couple of years. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is still hitting retail shelves on November 16, for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners in the North American region, and November 18 for Europe. Sorry, PC gamers. I suggest you fill your gap with some StarCraft II. *wink*
