Assassin's Creed Unity Delayed By A Fortnight To November 13th

Rogue's release also split up to match.

It’s hardly the biggest delay in the world, but Assassin’s Creed Unity has been pushed back by a fortnight from a worldwide launch date of October 28th to now release on November 11th in the US and November 13th in the EU and UK – which is a slightly unusual Thursday release date. Assassin’s Creed Rogue, the separate game that is heading to the last generation of console, is also seeing its worldwide release on November 11th being split to match the new release dates of Unity.

As part of the press release, Vincent Pontbriand, Senior Producer at Ubisoft said, “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. 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.”

Naturally, that new release date is also going to come with a day one patch, as Ubisoft continue to push in order to get Unity ready for public consumption.

The downside to all of this is that November is now looking like an incredibly crowded month for games, with Unity, Rogue, The Crew and Far Cry 4 all currently set for release in addition to a whole host of games from other publishers like Dragon Age: Inquisition and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The smart money would say that something somewhere is going to slip back to December or into 2015.

Place your bets now.

    Oh no!

    Gives me an extra two weeks to try and complete black flag.

    As always its good that they are ironing out the issues before releasing a buggy game.
    Nothing is more annoying that defeating an enemies weapon floating in mid air.

      Is there any important back story to Black Flag? Haven’t played it yet so wondering if it’s important to do so before Unity?

    With so many racers coming out in Q4, it wouldn’t be a stupid move to move The Crew back a few months, or the same with Far Cry 4 as there’s plenty of shooters.

    At least if they don’t delay anything, by the time I’m ready to pick up something new, the games will have dropped in price a bit! (Hopefully!)

    Far Cry 4 will be moved to December, like Far Cry 3 before it.

    The Crew could jump to next year, but the early part of next year is already busy, so it may just wiggle a little.

    Gonna pick up Rogue first and get Unity later.

    I’m think Far Cry 4 will get pushed back now too.
