Assassin's Creed 3 delayed on PC, Ubisoft confirms.
Update: Turns out that there was some confusion during the Assassin's Creed 3's San Diego Comic-Con panel earlier this week. Reached for comment today, a Ubisoft spokesman told us the PC version of the game is still slated for an Oct. 30th release. Reports contrary to that date, including our story linking out to Joystiq, were incorrect, he said.
The original story follows:
Assassin's Creed 3's PC launch will be delayed past its initial release date of October 30th, Ubisoft creative lead Alex Hutchinson confirmed during a San Diego Comic-Con panel; however, it will release before Christmas 2012.
The console release remains scheduled for its October launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
While it was previously rumored the PC version would see a delay after a promotional image from a publishing source revealed a November 23rd release in Europe for the platform, this is the first that Ubisoft offered confirmation.
Ubisoft often delays the release of PC versions of its titles, with the PC version of Assassin's Creed: Revelations delayed by half a month, while Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was released in March of 2011 after the November 2010 release of its console version.
No exact date for Assassin's Creed 3 on PC is yet available.
