Assassin's Creed 3 midnight pick-ups canceled at all northeast GameStop stores

Retailer GameStop has canceled all midnight pick-up events tonight for Assassin's Creed 3 and Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation at its northeast locations in light of Hurricane Sandy, reports Kotaku.

"Our top priority is the safety of our employees and customers," a representative for GameStop told Kotaku. "In compliance with directives issued by state and local authorities, stores in the path of the storm will remain closed until it is safe to re-open and midnight openings for Assassin's Creed 3 have been cancelled in the northeast."

GameStop encourages those who are planning to pick up the games this week to check with local stores individually regarding re-opening plans.
