The release date is set for Feb-22-2011 for PC. These websites would not just make these dates up. However, i do think that it's possible they could be changed if Ubisoft finds a new problem. I believe the reason that, Ubisoft has not posted it because they are not 100% sure it will be out then, they are probabally 99% sure it will be released on that date. Ubisoft had to have given the information to those websites. The Stores did not conclude that it would be released at the time ACII was, cause that was March 5th, so Feb-22-2011 is the currently set date. Here is proof.

Like all Forum Managers say, any date you see on a website is just one more guess.

As I'm sure Ubi realizes. This close to release, without a release date, is unnerving to customers.


So to avoid that, Feb 22 is listed as a release date. Why? because its pretty much the middle of Q1. Stores do that all the time. If I had a dollar for everytime I saw retail sites with conflicting release dates for games atleast 3-6months out, I'd be able to open a best buy. Until the publisher gives a solid date, its ALL speculation. I've been monitoring hte wikipedia article like a hawk because people love to change the release date to feb 22. But the fact of the matter is, that is not the release date.

Until Ubi gives us a day, anything we see is 100% speculation.

Well, I believe the date is accurate. Again its bad business for them to lie. And most, if not all retail online stores have that same date. In the U.S. anyways.

they always make up the dates, as the majority need to have a date in the system before they can start taking pre orders.

Heh, gamespot.com still shows March 23rd as the release date. I HIGHLY doubt it'll be a febuary release. I'd be happy to be wrong about that though.

it's a dutch website

this could mean that gamespot is actually right, but we just get it a day later in the netherlands

Amazon.co.uk say the release date is March 26th but everything seems to be just guess. There isn't proof, only Q1, until Ubi say otherwise.

This morning I received a confirmation on my pre-order, stating that 'the producer has postponed the game to March 24'. The producer? That would be Ubisoft, right... so that sounds pretty official...

caswallawn_2k7
01-28-2011, 02:51 AM
if Ubisoft had a date it would be posted and common knowledge, all the claiming the producer has put the date back means is "we thought it would come out this date but now it's getting a bit close and no date has been said so we better change our estimate"

this has happened with every AC game so far, until you see a release date posted on either the main AC site, a trailer or the Forums there is no official date.

you must be literally brand new to PC gaming. I've been staring at fake (or guessed if you want to be charitable) release dates ever since Jedi Knight, Privateer 2, Duke Nukem Forever (lol) etc. ad nauseum

Until there is an official annoucement, take any dates posted on retailers' websites with the greatest of skepticism. They list a date, usually made up, as a placeholder to enable customers to place preorders. That doesn't mean that the date they list is the actual release date.

Revan-Risinger
01-28-2011, 07:35 AM
No, they do not make up dates so people can place pre-oredrs, that is the most ignorant thing i have ever heard. I know of several sites that do not have set dates, but people can still order. Either you guys are stupid or your being negitive.

Because they work at Ubisoft, and part of their job is to tell the community about any news and updates.

That does not mean that they would tell us.

Shade just posted in another thread, there is no date.

as for why would they tell us, why would you give the shops a date then not release it to the people who are actually waiting for your product? getting the date to the customers is more important than getting it to the stores, as the customers make Ubi money and the stores make money from Ubi. so the customers are the most important part of the chain.

As posted...


Any date you see on any news, retail or online site - is not official.


Many sites take guesses at the date.. and you may see the same date in many places - due to one copying the other...


I am locking the thread, due to the knee jerk reactions posted in here and the fact that many will read those assumptions and start getting abusive when the game does not appear..

The OP - won't get the blame.. but I or Ubisoft will..


There is an ongoing thread about the PC release - please use that..

However posting dates without also posting the official announcement, will get my normal reaction..

Forum Managers are privy to information that may not be public, however I am not allowed to post without consent.

As soon as the announcement is ready, it will be published here by Gabe or another member of the team.
