Assassin's Creed Revelations delayed on PC

Assassin's Creed: Revelations has been delayed on PC, continuing Ubisoft's trend of delaying PC releases.

Bad news for fans of PCs and stabbing fools. Ubisoft has delayed the PC version of Assassin's Creed Revelations to December, from its previously set date of November 15. This follows other recent PC delays like From Dust and Driver: San Francisco.

The console versions are apparently unaffected, and are still on-track for the November 15 release. "Assassin's Creed Revelations will launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 15 and PC in December," a Ubisoft rep confirmed to Joystiq. Odd, considering as of last week, an Ubisoft UK forum manager claimed the PC version is still set to release alongside its console brethren.

Given the company's habit for delaying PC versions of multiplatform games, today's news is unfortunately unsurprising.

      At this point its obvious they are being delayed for the sake of being released later.

      Why don't they just come out with a press conference ans say "we will never release PC versions on the same day as console games they will be delayed by two months +"

      So then why do they have the DRM for the PC versions is that not suppose to allow them to release PC titles at the same time?

      Or they could say we are adding X and Y to make the PC version better.... I don't get it :(

      I expected this which is the sad thing, Shack should find out what they are adding if anything?

        it's because they fear piracy *supposedly* anyway, if pc version was out and probably leaked then people could just pirate it instead of buying the console version, this way people are more apt to buy the console version instead of waiting to pirate it.

          Dont worry too much about it. I guess every gamers in the whole wide world already know that this is Ubisoft's modus operandi.

          Maybe when people start pirating the XBox360 version, which funnily available sometimes way before the PC version and the console release dates, maybe they will notice and treat the PC platform a bit better...

      That's fine with me, I'll be busy with BF3 and I'd just as soon they polish the PC version as much as possible before release. I never mind waiting for a solid port.

          To be fair, despite being loaded with pointless draconian DRM, their ports are more solid than most.

      Sigh.

      As the post says, this is not a surprise.

      I don't know why they think that giving kicks in the nuts to their customers is going to give them any benefits.
