Whenever there’s a delay on the release of a PC game, you can rest assured that this writer will have it covered. After all, I’ve already covered delays on Batman: Arkham Asylum and Borderlands, so I know just the amount of cynicism and skepticism to approach this sort of thing with.
In all seriousness, though, the latest in the long line of delays for the PC is none other than Assassin’s Creed II. The sequel to the critically acclaimed action-adventure game has gained a large following, as fans of the previous game and newcomers to the series have all been anticipating the game for some time now. The first time gamers heard anything official about Assassin’s Creed II was in November 2008. Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot confirmed that the game was in development, and since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting the game’s launch.
The game will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC; but while the home console versions will be on retail stands November 17 of this year, the desktop version of the game will not see the light of day until the first quarter of 2010. This latest tidbit of information was recently posted on Ubisoft’s official Twitter account. The exact wording of the update is as follows: “Assassin’s Creed 2 PC has moved to the first quarter of 2010. A bit more time for the dev team to deliver the best quality game to you.” So there you have it, PC gaming aficionados. It’s not that the folks over Ubisoft don’t love you; it’s that they love you so much that they’re working extra hard on the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II to make sure it is of the utmost quality.
