Assassin's Creed Unity Delayed

Today Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Unity will be delayed until November 11 in the US and November 13 in Europe. Originally the game was scheduled to launch on October 28 in the US, just a few weeks prior to the release of Assassin’s Creed Rogue for PS3 and Xbox 360. Now the two games will share a launch date giving players the “Doublemint” treatment–see below.

We at Geek Legacy have discussed game delays on several occasions and in most cases agree a finished and well polished product is what’s best for the gaming community. Luckily for us, Ubisoft appears to feel the same way.

“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,” says 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.”

Press Release

UBISOFT MOVES ASSASSIN’S CREED® UNITY RELEASE DATE TO NOVEMBER 13


London, UK – August 28, 2014 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that Assassin’s Creed® Unity will be released on November 11 in the US and on November 13 in EMEA. The two extra weeks will help ensure that the quality of the game meets fans’ — and the team’s — lofty expectations. This news has no impact on the company’s full year financial targets, which Ubisoft also confirms today.

“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,” says 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.”

The US release date for Assassin’s Creed Rogue remains unchanged (November 11). In EMEA territories, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will now release November 13, alongside Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Check out the Doublemint commercial from our youth and perhaps you too shall take a stroll down memory lane. Those of you that are too young for this crap should know you missed out on some amazing commercials back in the 80’s. Suckers!
