Please, Please correct me if this seems foolish cause this is the impression I'm under, but....

The official annouced release date is Ubisoft's 2007/2008 fiscal year. I'm no bussiness man but isn't a fiscal year set by the company? And according to the bussiness section of Ubisofts web site (Ubisoft's Fiscal Year (http://www.ubisoftgroup.com/index.php?p=65&art_id=)), their fiscal year ends march 31 and begins April 1. This means that AC could be launched as early as April in relation to their official annoucment.

In another announcement, AC was delayed from it's original early 07 launch to this later date to make time for the development of GRAW2. The core mechanics of GRAW2 are there from GRAW so there can't be much to develop.

And finaly take into consideration the facts that AC is already in the late states of it's development and seems to need only minor polishing and fixes, and that there is a high anticipation for this game.

I'd say that AC will be released soon in Ubisoft's fiscal year, somewhere between April and June 2007.

Again, PLEASE correct me if this seems off, cause I would love to see an earlier release and on the other end would not wanna get my hopes up for this release date when it is actualy coming much later.

This is just a question don't bash me for it:

But what difference does it make if they sell it this fiscal year or the next fiscal year didn't they say part of the reason was to improve next fiscal year's sales? they get their money sooner or later and I know it was for GRAW to do better but they could have released that later considering they just had a GRAW game come out last year they should let this new game assassin's come out now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Like I said I'm no bussiness man, I would guess that the delay to the 07/08 fiscal year would be to spread the wealth. It looks good on the charts that their stockholders see. Constant good sales is better than peaks I would assume.

Actually, I think stalling a game just for financial purposes means that the game is almost ready.

Stalling it is not a matter of tweaking or further development, but just pumping a highly anticipated game into another fiscal year.

As a matter of fact, as stated by someone else the fiscal year starts in april. We could see a release by then for all we know.

But I do think Ubisoft needs to make some things clear on this matter, it's just too vague at te moment.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Ahh ok that makes sense wish they'd not worry about that and just give us our game though o.o


And I hope it comes out in April that'd be nice I was figuring around fall next year April sounds better

I really wish they would make this first because people have been waiting a long time for this and its only been about 8 months since GRAW came out.

GRAW wasnt really that good anyway. This I know will be amazing in terms of quality.

It will come out when UBI realeases it. Si? Ja? Yes?
No point in getting your hopes up, but rather think that it's coming in october 2009, then you won't (hopefully) get disappointed.

I know this speach didn't get anyone of you to stop hoping, cause I still hop that it comes out around may 2007 or something like that, but UBI is making the game, and they will finish it, and when we get it, it'll be worth waiting 3 years for. (I hope)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Gasp!!! Like what?!

Calm down, stop bashing. I'm not necessarily worried, I don't live each day counting the seconds till the release of AC. I just like to anylize things epecialy when they have to do with something I'm interested in. And I thought I'd post my opinion in a forum related to the topic.

So dose anyone have a real opinion related to what I originaly posted? Or are you gonna tell me to go outside and see the sun for the first time? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

AC will probably come out in October-November, when most games come out.

I sincerely hope they won't rush this game like they did some others that were recently released. I'd rather wait for it a bit longer and have a more polished and, most importantly, fully completed game than to have 'em rush it to get a good amount of sales in before a certain period in time and then being stuck with a bug-ridden, half completed game that'll require several patches to be playable.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

IGN says fourth quarter,
gamespot and gametrailers says second quarter.

may 4th, yay for random numbers

fiscal year always starts in april and ends in march or starts in march. I have no clue how it works either, but most companies say thats when the fiscal year starts and stuff.

Hurray random numbers.
Confusion, it's more like con-FUN-sion.

Yeah, I had to google "Fiscal". I kinda had an idea what it was but didnt know for sure. It's a year long span that the company creates for tax purposes.

And as I posted before, Ubisoft's fiscal year is April 1 through March 31.

So I got my fingers crossed here its gonna be first quarter.

Do you guys know how to read? It has been pushed back to the fiscal 2007/2008 year which for ubisoft (you can search this on fourms if you want) is April 1st-March 31st. If it does come out in march 2007 ill be very surprised since that is before the fiscal year which they delayed it to. So march 17th 07 is not likely

on the offical ubi website it says the game will be released in march 2007. Its suppose to come out between the 9th or 30th. Lets just not hope ubi changes their mind
