Initially due alongside its console brethren in November 2009, the belated PC edition of Assassin's Creed II is now slated to release on March 16, 2010 and will include the game's two downloadable add-ons, publisher Ubisoft revealed today.

Two versions of the game will be released on PC: a $59.99 standard edition and a $64.99 "Black Edition" that's exclusive to digital distribution outlets.
