The PC version of Assassin's Creed 3 will not launch alongside the console versions of Ubisoft's highly anticipated title. As spotted by the Czech arm of Eurogamer, Assassin's Creed 3 will instead release on November 23, 2012. – about a month after the Xbox 360 and PS3 release.
Keep in mind, this was from the Europe promotional material which means the North American version will likely still be delayed but will probably release a few days before November 23rd.
The new PC release date was noticed in some fine print on the bottom of an Assassin's Creed 3 promotional image. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game will still release on October 30 in the U.S. as previously announced. It is set to release on October 31 in Europe.
This isn't the first time an Assassin's Creed title has been delayed for PC. Assassin's Creed: Revelations was delayed by half a month, and the PC version of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood launched months after its release on consoles.
Ubisoft claims that a PC release date for Assassin's Creed 3 is "still to be announced".
