Belgium, Luxembourg and Netherlands-bound Assassin's Creed 3 PC shipments stolen

A truck carrying the launch shipment of Assassin's Creed 3 for PC for the Benelux states (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg) has been stolen by criminals, according to European business site Entertainment Business.

According to the site, as discovered by Kotaku, the stolen cargo will not affect the PC launch date of the game, with copies still expected to go on sale on Nov. 30. However, those who pre-ordered the "Join or Die" edition of the game may not receive their copies because the product can no longer be backordered by Ubisoft.

Entertainment Business says that Ubisoft is currently producing stock so that the game can still ship in Benelux on its planned launch day. It has passed the barcodes and serial numbers of the stolen games to retailers and blacklisted those numbers from server authentication.

Assassin's Creed 3 is already out in North America. It will launch in the U.K. on Nov. 23 and Benelux on Nov. 30.
