Assassin’s Creed Unity release date pushed to November 11

Ubisoft has postponed the release date of its anticipated Assassin’s Creed Unity game due to “a lot of heavy lifting”. With the new schedule, the historical action-adventure game will be available in America on November 11 while its release in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) territories is scheduled for November 13.

On announcing the delay, Vincent Pontbriand, Senior Producer, Assassin’s Creed Unity, said:

“This being a fully next-gen game, it requires a lot of work, a lot of production, and a lot of learning. It’s always hard to be precise and to quantify exactly how much work is involved. So as we get close to the finish we often realize we’re near the target but we’re not quite there yet.”

Montreuil, France-based Ubisoft initially scheduled the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity for October 28 but the schedule has been delayed by two weeks as the developer’s team required to adjust to new technology.

“Now that the team has a near-finished game, those extra two weeks will allow them to focus on those minor adjustments that can make a big difference – and ultimately help Ubisoft deliver on the promise of the game,” Ubisoft states in a blog post.

Pontbriand says that his team members have spent over three years on the project of making Assassin’s Creed Unity live for the gamers. This itself states that how this game release is important not only for its fans who are anxious to get their hands on to the new action but also for the developers who are working behind the scenes.

The new schedule revealed by Ubisoft confirms that Assassin’s Creed Unity will be available on the same day when it is set to release its previous generation – Assassin’s Creed Rogue – for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Ubisoft is all-set to release Assassin’s Creed Unity across PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
