Our reader ‘BlastThyName’ has informed us about the studio that will be porting Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on the PC. According to the official Russian-language fan site Assassins-Creed.ru, Ubisoft Kiev will be handling the PC version of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed title. Ubisoft Kiev was also responsible for the PC versions of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Assassin’s Creed III.
As we’ve said in our Performance Analysis for it, Assassin’s Creed III suffered from a lot of CPU optimization issues. That game was heavy on the CPU, and some graphical features were handled by the CPU instead of the GPU.
The big question now is this: Did Ubisoft Kiev learned its lesson or will the PC version of Assassin’s Creed IV suffer from the very same issues?
Only time will tell. Assassin’s Creed IV PC will be released a couple of weeks after the release of the current-gen console versions, and will be based on the next-gen version of it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
