Assassins Creed 3 PC is TBD

Mr Shade a few days ago wrote this:
The PC version is still on track for release.
Any missing artwork / release info on trailers is an error.(so why this error happens only to the PC)
For more detailed info please watch closer to release, as at present there is no delay.

So a big lie from Mr Shade and Ubisoft.Congrats

TBD doesn't mean it's delayed. It just means either they haven't set it in stone yet. or the website hasn't updated the page. until ubisoft officially come out and say it is delayed. expect an oct 30th release. A lot of websites might leave a TBD mark next to it just out of expecting a delay as well since previous titles have been.

They will release AC on oct 31 MAX until nov 15. 2weeks like ACR . You should be happy with these 2 weeks not 5-6 months like AC 1- AC2- ACB...

Website does not have any info. Can clearly see it. AC 3 is due to release on the 30th (NA) and 31st (EUR/ASIA) on the following platforms, PS3, Xbox360, WiiU and PC.

You shouldn't get your panties in a bunch over what a website states. Look at IGN and Gamestop (they even have them in the UK and other areas). They state it's on PC for the 30th/31st.

Then wait for an Official announcement before you call them liars and jump to conclusions..
even if it WAS delayed they would not be liars, because they have stated numerous times before that its not set in stone..

I may be wrong because english is not my native language but the highlighted line means to me that at the moment the PC version is expected to be released at the same day as the console versions, but this doesn't mean it can't change until there...

don't get me wrong, I'm at the same boat as you waiting to play the PC version and I hope they tell us the **** new release date soon (because we all know or at least expect it'll be delayed, all the previous games were delayed so I don't think this time will be different), but I don't see any lie in what Mr_Shade said in this case, IMO he didn't confirm nor deny that the PC version will be released at the same day as the others...

GameSpy: So when's the PC release date?

Ubisoft PR: October 30th.

GameSpy: Yeah, but when's the real PC release date?

Ubisoft PR: It's October 30th.

GameSpy: Uh huh. And can you say that with a straight face?

Ubisoft PR: You can ask me as many times as you like, but the answer will be the same.

GameSpy: Very well, let's move on. So, when will you announce the delay of the PC version?

I lol'ed when I read those questions for the first time, it's sad but is so true that end up being funny.. :p


but that interview is a little old and liking it or not release dates can change sometimes, the problem is that this happens often with Ubisoft, but at the moment they're saying the game doesn't have a confirmed release date for the PC version yet, so I prefer to believe in what they say now than in what they said in the past...

Because very few players go to the PC forum for news, it's mostly used for reporting bugs.

If and when the delay is officially announced, I won't be the least bit surprised. My only wish is that they let us know in a timely fashion when the actual release date will be, instead of waiting until 2 weeks before the general release.

Agreed, and with any hope, IF it is delayed (Revelations' minor delay kinda restored my faith in Ubi), it'll be a short one, like Revelations was. 6 months is just F-ing ridiculous.

ProletariatPleb
06-14-2012, 04:29 AM
Let's just hope it's as short as Revelations(2weeks) IF AT ALL, the earlier titles were delayed 6months -_- 6months!!!

Actually getting the game on the release date might just revive Ubi's rep with PC gamers.

Jexx21
06-14-2012, 05:21 AM
I actually hope it'll be delayed, because I want the collector's edition and I don't really have the money right now to get it, and probably won't for a while.

My only major purchases that I have planned for the rest of the year are pretty much Assassin's Creed 3, Dishonored, and Borderlands 2, and I don't think that I could afford to spend another $90 on upgrading AC3 to a collector's edition.

And Dawnguard for Skyrim, but that's only $20.

The problem with waiting is that if we don't keep asking, they'll make us wait until 2 weeks before the supposed release date before announcing the delay, as they have done with the last three games in a row. It seems a bit unreasonable to make us wait 4 months for an answer.

Its not their fault, and besides during the hype for AC II they announced the delay just after E3, during Brotherhood`s they announced it in August and during Revelations` they announced it in October..
They are trying their best to deliver you the game on time..

Of course it is their fault if they keep saying the release date is so-and-so, absolutely, we're 100% sure this time, and then turn around just before the general release and quietly let it slip that the PC version will be delayed. When Brotherhood and Revelations were delayed, there was NO official post about it on the forums, not on Twitter and not on Facebook. The information was casually leaked to a few gaming sites and when pressed for an official answer to confirm this, not a peep out of the mods. So we were left to wonder up until the very end whether we should trust this information or not. And people wonder why players tend to jump at unofficial sources instead of waiting for official answers from Ubisoft.

Ubisoft has a reputation for having one of the crappiest communication departments in the history of gaming, especially when it comes to PC releases. It is their job to make sure information is accurately and timely delivered to the playerbase. If they fail to do this, year after year, we have every right to complain.

I think all PC players agree that the delay itself is not the problem. We are happy to wait as long as we are treated like valuable customers and given adequate information in a timely and official manner. I completely understand the pressures of trying to deliver a good product on time, I'm cool with that. It's the constant lying and lack of communication that pisses me off. Just tell us right from the start "unfortunately we can't yet confirm the PC release date, but we'll get information to you as soon as possible".

Yup. It's totally us PC gamers who are being disrespectful towards poor Ubisoft. Not like it's equally rude of them to delay a game ONE DAY BEFORE RELEASE without giving any reason for it.

to be fair a lot of people know what assassin_m is like and are used to it. Besides. when you been around as long as he has on the forums you have seen lots of annoying and silly things from people and it can definitely get frustrating having to constantly try to reassure people about something.

I like to consider myself very mature and civilised, but even i have my limits as does everybody. Sometimes frustration can get the better of people. The thing is though that assassin_m does also apologise when he has gone a little far.

Not to mention the whole pc delay thing has been going on since ac2 and i think even ac1 :S. i know i've seen my fair share of them and i ain;t been here as long as he has.

I'd be pretty annoyed if this game was delayed for consoles while PC got it first and I'd be even more annoyed if PC users kept telling me to "deal with it". I don't see anything disrespectful in this thread, people on this forum will defend Ubisoft no matter what ugh.

As a PC gamer, I think the people in this thread should just deal with it.

It's not going to matter when the game comes out, you'll still get to play it. And besides that, it's just a game... it's not like it's one of the most important things in the world that you have to have it right away.

You are right it is just their attitude that annoys me.

And his - why should we just 'deal with it'? Sure, we'll buy it anyway, and play it also, but we've still a right to complain. You should see the console wars that go on when one get extra instead of the other - I see no sign of the aforementioned 'dealing' going on.

Okay, honestly, I don't see why it actually matters.

It's just a game, and I'll get it when it comes out. If they need to delay the game so that they can either optimize the PC version or so that we can get all the DLC for free, that's fine.

And if they make more money doing it this way, I don't mind, because the more money they have to make games usually means higher quality games (not all the time of course, but still).

Honestly, a similar situation comes to mind with Dawnguard for Skyrim. Bethesda signed a license saying that they have to release their first 2 DLCs for Skyrim on the Xbox first, and the other systems can get it 30 days after the release. A month isn't too long to wait, and if Bethesda gets money from Microsoft for doing so, why not?

It's just a test of time and patience, no more.

People are spoilt rotten in the modern world and so not many people really have much patience. I can understand being upset regarding in game content and such, but having to wait a little longer to get a game is hardly going to kill anybody.

Well if they use that time for optimization that is fine but they use it for DRM

Not really, they already have their DRM systems in place.

Also, I like uPlay, and they removed the always online crap a while ago.

(btw, uPlay is set up for consoles too, so it's not a PC only DRM)

well, it's been gone for 2 years now for Assassin's Creed. I don't think they'll change back.

And besides that, the always online DRM isn't even bad since I'm always online and I rarely have connection problems. And if my internet goes out, I just do something else.

$60

and most games today require internet connections..

I would hate not to have an internet connection for my PC, and I would also hate it if I didn't have an internet connection for my consoles, since then I couldn't get game updates on either platforms.

That's nice for you but not everyone is as fortunate as you with their internet connection. The problem with those people isn't usually that their internet goes down for, say, 15 minutes and then comes back on, solid as ever, but that their connection drops every 5 minutes, meaning their game gets interrupted constantly.

Anyway, I don't think the DRM as it was in AC2 originally is coming back either, though they may do something similar. Again, the problem for most PC players isn't the delay itself, it's the way Ubisoft is treating their customers. They love pushing you to pre-order the game as early as possible so they can boast about the numbers, and as soon as they have your money, they don't give a hoot about getting the game to you on time or even bothering to let you know you're not getting it on the day you thought you would.

As a PC customer who has it pre-ordered, I don't really get whether I get it this october or next october.

Also, it's really crappy that other people have internet that drops every 5 minutes. I have slow internet, but at least it's a solid connection.

DRM, in any form, shouldn't be tolerated. But since Ubisoft are hoping to negate the need for DRM in the future, I HOPE they start with Assassin's Creed 3.

I'll be buying it for PS3 and PC regardless.

Yeah i hope that AC3 has no DRM but you know Ubisoft they said no DRM but the game has DRM which happend to a game From Dust if you recall.

I have no problem with the PC version being delayed 2 weeks 1 month if that time is use for optimizations to make the game runs smoother on PC instead on focusing on DRM or delay the game simply because it eats console sale.Ubisoft just keep lyng to customers over and over again we just whant a straight answer from the start.

Any "delay" would not be due to integrating DRM.

The system has been used for a few years and is pretty smooth to integrate now..

I wouldn't use that as a basis for an assumption of the "delay"

From dust issue was a mix up in communication - it too needed a connection to activate, which was not correctly posted about on websites (from what I remember)

I say "delay" since at present the PC release date has not been formally announced in the official trailers - it still says "to be announced" - so you can't technically delay anything, without a release date from Ubisoft.

The game may well release the same time as consoles, however until official started, it's still on track.


My comment in the first post, was in answer to a thread saying the PC version was cancelled... Due to the pc version being missing from the trailers..

My reply about it being on track for release is true, it's still in the process of being developed, and will be released most likely on the date they announced.



Any extra time taken after the console release (if any) will be for optimising the game, not making any DRM - since it would already be part of it, what ever the type it uses.

I am moving this to the PC forum, where it belongs

If im not wrong ACR was ready for release alongside console but Ubisoft decide to delay the game by 2 weeks cause it eats cosole sales not to optimiasing the game as you claim and guess what ACR got leaked to torrent 2 weeks until release.So dont blame piracy blame your stupidity Ubisoft.

Be happy Ubi still makes PC games, some companies(I'm looking at you EPIC games...) just totally drop it by stating it's because of piracy and that eats our sales, not realizing that there is console piracy as well, and at times like now when the console cycle is at an end announce something PC exclusive because "we cannot forget the PC".
