Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag for PC to come after consoles

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will be out on October 26 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on October 29, and will be a launch title for the next-gen Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, if you want to get a taste of the pirate life on PC, you'll have to wait even longer, and that should come as no surprise.

As has become routine for the Assassin's Creed series, the PC version will come "a few weeks after" the next-gen consoles launch sometime in November, Ubisoft game director Ashraf Ismail told ElderGeek (via GameSpot). The PC version of Assassin's Creed 3 launched almost a month after the console versions, while Assassin's Creed 2 launched several months after its Xbox 360 and PS3 counterparts.

"We're working hard on the PC version," Ismail said. "It's one of the main platforms we work on in the office. For our PC fans, don't worry. The game on PC looks phenomenal."
