Ubisoft delays release of Assassin’s Creed Unity by two weeks

For those of you looking forward to Assassin’s Creed Unity being released on October 28th, I got some bad news for you. Ubisoft has delayed the game by two weeks, with the new release date being November 11th in the U.S. and November 13th in Europe.

Ubisoft made the announcement on its blog.

“This being a fully next-gen game, it requires a lot of work, a lot of production, and a lot of learning,” said Unity senior producer Vincent Pontbriand. “It’s always hard to be precise and to quantify exactly how much work is involved. So as we get close to the finish we often realize we’re near the target but we’re not quite there yet.”

As long as the extra weeks will help improve the game, I’m all for it. Fans were upset with the many glitches popping up in Assassin’s Creed III. I encountered many hilarious glitches as well, including men walking in the sky and a bar patron spinning around on a stool. It was a sight to see.

In addition to the two week help, there will also be a day one patch.

“Making games is not a precise science. It’s a leap of faith. There’s a good level of subjectivity and creativity,” continued Pontbriand.

“We have a bunch of us who have spent two, three years or more on this project. It’s a huge personal investment. People have been truly dedicated to this game. For them it’s also important to make a game that they can be proud of.”

Assassin’s Creed Unity will be available for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
