It happened to every last PC version of Assassin’s Creed, and, unfortunately, it seems like Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will make no difference. Ubisoft has announced that AC IV: Black Flag for the PC will launch two weeks later, compared to the current generation versions.
Asked about the release dates of AC IV in a recent interview, Creative Director Ashraf Ismail said that the “PC [version] will come a few weeks after.” He went on stating that he’s just the “creative guy,” so he may be wrong, but looking back at all the other entries, it sounds like something Ubisoft would do, even though the company stated that it wants to improve its relationships with the PC gamers.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is scheduled for release on October 29th in North America, October 31st in Australia, and November 1st across Europe on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. Unfortunately, there’s still no word on when will the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions be available, due to the fact that we don’t know the release dates of the consoles themselves. You can watch the interview below.
