Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Unity has been delayed by two weeks, and will now launch on November 11. The additional two weeks will be spent honing certain details to ensure that the game is exceptional, according to the publisher.
“As we got close to the finish, we realized we were near the target but still needed a bit more time to hone some of the details to make sure Assassin’s Creed Unity is exceptional,” said Vincent Pontbriand, senior producer at Ubisoft. “We sincerely appreciate players’ commitment to the game and their patience. It’s just a couple more weeks. And it’s going to be worth it.
“This being a fully next-gen game, it requires a lot of work, a lot of production, and a lot of learning,” he added. “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.”
Ubisoft added that the delay to Unity will not affect Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, which will now launch on the same day as its next-gen brother on November 11.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will now hit Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 11 in North America and November 13 in Europe.
