Ubisoft just announced that the massively anticipated Assassin’s Creed Unity will miss its original release date of October 28th, and will now hit the shelves on November 11th in North America and November 13th in Europe.
Senior Producer Vincent Pontbriand provided a statement with the motivation for the delay:
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.
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.
Luckily two weeks really aren’t that much of a delay, and Assassin’s Creed Unity won’t end up in the crowded gaming orgy which is next February. It’ll be painful, but I’m sure we can wait a little longer.
