Ubisoft is not new to delaying games, especially in the past couple years. Some had longer delays, some shorter, but quite a few titles hit the shelves later than they were expected.
I hope Assassin’s Creed: Victory will be great, and they learned their lesson with Unity.
New tech on new consoles is always a challenge. Ubisoft has caught a lot of flak, but the problem was widespread.
I heard EA learned their lesson on bf3 then bf4 happened. I learned a lesson. Don't buy games on release assuming they work because game developers don't learn. Now I wait until I know a game is playable before purchasing it.
Instead of promising for unbroken games, they promised to steadily milk their franchises without missing any chances now. Get ready for more broken games from ubisoft!
I just won't buy games anymore until I know they work. I don't have to deal with broken games anymore and they lose sales.
I haven't been buying any games from Ubi lately. the last one I bought from them was Rayman Origins. lucky me, their games don't appeal to me much
On time is good, but dont rush it. If delays make the difference between a good or bad game, just delay it.
I thought they were already avoiding game delays by just releasing games unfinished..
How about don't publish unachievable release dates!
Totally, I'm happy with 1 months notice, maybe 2.
How about you promise to release working games, huh?
As long as they bring Rainbow Six this year I'm happy, will be nice to play a squad based shooter where you have to use tactics and play as a team. Hopefully The Division is as good as it looks, but I'm going to wait to see a bit more of that before I get my hopes to high.
i'm fine with a game being delayed because it usually means that they're going to put more work into polishing the game. so, really, ubisoft... please, delay a game if it's necessary, but don't delay it, and then still have it released in a broken state.
Very true, know one wants a broken game. I think The Division is the game that will probably require the extra attention because it seems like they're trying to do something really next gen there. Rainbow 6 is probably a little more straight forward in comparison, I just hope they get it right, one of my all time fave multiplayer games.
Hey Ubisoft release these this year M' kay? Rainbow Six Siege. Hmm? :) The Division. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? >:) Assassins Creed: Victory. "Yeah, scratch that one until you get your shit together after what you did with Unity scumbags. Glitches, milking the user dry for transactions on disc, etc. >_>
Don't forget the joke that is having to unlock outfits and gear using the idiotic mobile app and AC Initiates.
"milking the user dry for transactions on disc", where do some of you guys get your info, smh.
Are you blind? Look at the freaking menus in Unity!! Its all right there.
As long as the big companies has been making games how do they not know if a game is ready or will be ready in the time they estimated it to be, no way they can do that much or they lose way to much money, or they are charging way to much for games and able to drag them out,.. Big reason they do it to release games at the best consumers buying time, n cheating us gamers out to have to wait,..I'll buy the same games in February as I do at Christmas, only reason I buy games in November is cause that's when they release them,..
I rather have a game delayed instead of launching like Unity or BF4.
Does that mean they are just going to shovel out garbage? I don't mind delays IF your game ACTUALLY IMPROVES. Ubisoft delays always equal downgrades.
so.... in other words, more buggy and rushed releases.
Ubisoft makes me sick. This statement is worrying if anything.
I would rather they did delay games and make sure they are not just finished, but polished as well.
Even with delays on AC Unity didn't seemed to improve overall performance. So if they avoid delays expect a much worse overall performance game than what they show you in trailers.
I didnt have problems with ac unity or watch dogs. And i liked fc4 and the crew :)
I didn't have problems with AC Unity or Watch Dogs either, but Far Cry 4 does have stuttering/frame-pacing issues that really annoy me. Those were all on PC, by the way. All three are good games in my book. Ubisoft just need to not rush things and give the dev teams the time they need.
So..... we'll just get rushed buggy games now like what happened with AC: parity? I'm fine with delays as long as it means that it will give devs more time to polish and iron out bugs.
A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad. Shigeru Miyamoto
I'd much prefer to hear how Ubisoft would delay the game to not release an unfinished, bugged game.
they need promise to not downgrade,release unoptimize buggy product but its ubisoft..they promise can't be trusted
And who would actually believe anything ubisoft says ever agiain.......just mores Lies and it will be business as usual again.
