Ubisoft has delayed the PC version of Assassin's Creed III to November 20.

This delay should not come as a surprise to PC gamers who have followed Ubisoft's stealth-action series. There have been four Assassin's Creed games on consoles so far, and every single one has been slow to make it to computers.


But today seems like a good day to bring up this prescient interview from GameSpy (as pointed out by Kotaku reader -Silver-).

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?

Ubisoft PR: ...

Well played, GameSpy. Well played indeed.



They should cancel the PC version. They don't sell well at all, and it's where all the piracy comes from. If they only released a 360/PS3/WiiU version, then sales would be higher because if the piraters wanted to play it, they'd be a lot more likely to buy it for console it instead of going to Pirate Bay
