Ubisoft delays Assassin's Creed: Unity Release to 11th November

Ubisoft announced today that it has delayed Assassin's Creed Unity by two weeks, with a new release of 11th November in the US and 13th November in Europe.

"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."

Where they scared of GTA5's release?

You got that all wrong

I suspect quality reasons, this is why I'm waiting for reviews with this one. Watch Dogs was too underwhelming to justify another Ubisoft preorder.

I agree with your suspicion about quality and your opinion of Watch Dogs but that won't stop me preordering AC Unity. Ubisoft is an enormous publisher/developer with a large number of studios. I'm sure there's some cross-over but essentially the people that made Watch Dogs are not the same people that make AC games who are again not the same people that make Dance Central or Rayman or Trials or Child of Light or Splinter Cell or...

It's now being released the same day as "Rogue." My guess is, they just didn't want to leave last gen owners out during Unity's launch. I doubt it has anything to do with quality, otherwise it would be delayed to early next year.

This is easily the year of delays. Even if some games are just getting delayed by a few weeks or a month. MOST of the games that were delayed though, were delayed til 2015.

Oh, I hate delays.

In the history of gaming, I think Ubisoft is the most common one.

To be fair, they release alot of games. Most of all big publishers?

Cutting it a bit too close to LBP3 for my liking, but I'm fine with it.
