View Full Version : Official Release Date (not speculation)

09-23-2007, 11:13 AM
hey I just got my weekly Best Buy Advertisements in the paper, and there was some deal like a $10 gift card if you pre-order COD4 or AC and then buy a $40 game. But that's not what this is about. There was a little caption underneath AC, so I screenshotted the website, and it's got the Release date! November 14th, 2007 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif awesome

but then i checked Circuit City's site, and they say it'll be the 13th. I'm thinking either neither of them know for sure, or they'll release it on different days (which would be stupid)

Also, do you guys think that's the final box art?

Release Date from Best Buy (http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o114/spazzoo1025/yay.jpg)

Circuit City (http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o114/spazzoo1025/coolz.jpg)

i hope im the first one to post this lol

EDIT:Btw, if you guys cant find it in the pics, the release date is right underneath the UPC code under Assassin's Creed Xbox 360 in the middle

I hate to be the negative nancy but, Best Buy is not Ubisoft. As much as I would like to believe that there is finally a set release date, I can't be 100% convinced by Best Buy's website. It's going to have to come straight outta Ubi's mouth.

Which is funny... I wonder if there are people in this world that are actually named "Ubi"? It would be neat if they would stop by here and tell us when the release date is...

Nice find, though, Spaz... like I said, i'm not meaning to offend. =)

(Edit: Just saw your edit adding Circuit City... that only makes me more unsure.)

There's a high chance it is the actual release date. It'd have to be the 13th though, since that's a Tuesday, and games are put in stores on Tuesdays in the US.

thats what i was thinking too, so i checked out Army of Two (which was rumored to be released around the same time) and on CC, it says the 13th. Whereas Best Buy says the 14th. But i think Best Buy just wants to be different so its trying to be an attention-stealer from CC http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

....isnt the 13th classified as "mid"?

TUESDAY the 13th??? ah!!! that's like...friday the 13th but a different version!

i do belive that the 13th will be the official release date, for multiple reasons. some were already stated above, so no use in repeating those, but others are personal theories. first, most of the gaming sites have it listed under the 13th of November. and to back up that reason, here's a quote from an IGN interview with the makers of Mercenaries 2:

IGN: So what's the deal with Mercenaries 2? Online retailers have pushed the ship date to 2008. Is that the case, has the game been delayed?

Josh Resnick: Those dang sneaky retailers! You just can't seem to keep a lid on something once they hear about it. I don't know what kind of Internet genie those guys have in their back pockets, but I wish I knew him. I would ask him when Duke Nukem Forever is coming out, for starters.

IGN Article. (http://ps3.ign.com/articles/822/822277p1.html)

if you read, you can see that the dev being interviewed says that those "retailers" let things out when they're supposed to be confidential. so if AC's release date was announced on a set date, but it was to be kept private, the same thing may have happened.

the retailers may have put up the official date even though they weren't supposed to. as with the case of the delay of Mercenaries 2.

just a crazy theory... but it is logical and makes sense! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

US amazon also says 13th but uk says 30th!! thats gotta be wrong.

09-23-2007, 02:12 PM
Um... this isn't official... this is speculation because Ubisoft didn't announce it officially and loads of sites are saying it comes out on different dates...

09-23-2007, 02:13 PM
^I concur

09-23-2007, 02:13 PM
i just hope it is out by the 14th of November. I have already taken that day off in hopes of playing Assassins Creed all day.

09-23-2007, 02:14 PM
