Ubisoft have had a hard time when it comes to game releases on the current generation consoles and PC, but arguably the worst was with Assassin’s Creed Unity.
With bugs holding the game back, fans love of the franchise was truly tested, with the PC version faring the worst. Now with Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, there may be some hope in redemption.
Talking to PC Gamer at E3 the game’s Creative Director Marc-Alexis Côté said:
“We want the game to really work well on the PC on day one, which is why it’s not the same launch [date] as the Xbox One and the Playstation 4 versions. It will come a bit later in the fall, but I think it will be worth the wait”
Pc gamers will have noticed that when the release date was revealed Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4 October 23rd, but the PC version has yet to be dated. This is expected to be by the end of 2015 with Côté further stating “We’re really dedicating a team to working on this and making sure it shines.”
While fans no doubt will be disappointed with no actual release date revealed there is no doubt that Assassin’s Creed Syndicate needs a release that brings back fan confidence in Ubisoft, which will be hard to do.
Through focusing on getting the game stable and above all playable before rushing out a release, this will hopefully pay off in the end.
The real question with this release news though has to be just how will the fans react? No doubt there are many that are looking at Syndicate cynically and foresee another Unity debacle, which would be disastrous.
What do you think of this Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate news? Does the delay annoy you? Or do you just hope Ubisoft get it right this time? Let us know below!
