Blue's News noticed that online retailer Amazon.com shows the PC version hitting North America on December 9, with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions still on track for the promised December 2 launch. This coincides with Eurogamer's official confirmation of a one-week delay for the PC version in European territories.
No reason was provided for the delay, though Ubisoft and Electronic Arts are among the many publishers that have been postponing PC releases until after console versions arrive, as was the case with EA's Dead Space and Mirror's Edge. Ubisoft Shanghai attributed the delayed PC release of EndWar to piracy concerns
However, not all of Ubisoft's PC-console titles have been delayed--Ubisoft Montreal's Far Cry 2 launched simultaneously on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in late October.
