Assassin’s Creed Unity: Release Date for PC Probably Won’t be Delayed, Ubisoft Says

 “Assassin’s Creed: Unity” for the PC will be released at the same time as the PS4 and Xbox One versions, Ubisoft has said.

“We’re always aiming to ship all our games on all platforms at the same time,” producer Lesley Phord-Toy told Rock Paper Shotgun. “I don’t have any specific news on the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Unity, but I do know we’re planning on shipping on all three [platforms]: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. I haven’t heard any news differently than that.”

She said Ubisoft is “very confident” the game will come out on all platforms Oct. 28.

Phord-Toy has previously worked on “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag” for the PC version.

“It can be challenging,” she told the website. “PC has a variety of different hardware configurations that you can’t necessarily predict. On a console you know what’s in the box. Every customer has the same configuration for the most part, and first-parties push firmware updates so everyone has what you’re expecting to have. PCs are nowhere near as consistent. So it can be extremely challenging to try and support as many of those permutations as possible.”

“Like I said, Ubisoft has been very successful at achieving same-ship in the recent past, so we’re very confident that we’ll be able to do the same for Assassin’s Creed Unity,” she continued. 

Recently, a trailer for the game was released for the game during E3 earlier this month.

Creative director Alex Amancio said during E3 the game is about “carving your own unique path through a huge, immerse city filled with countless stories, activities, and awards.”
