Well, Ubisoft is at it again. BehindGames has just reported that the PC version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be released a few weeks after the release of the one for current-gen consoles. The game was initially planned for a simultaneously release on X360, PS3 and PC, however during this year’s E3, Ashraf Ismail (creative director of the game) confirmed that the PC version won’t be released on November 1st.
Now this may not be bad news. The latest press release we got from Ubisoft claims that the PC version has a TBA release date, which is the same with the one for PS4 and Xbox One. In other words, it seems that the PC version is based on the next-gen version of Assassin’s Creed IV, which is a good thing.
Ubisoft did not reveal any further details about the PC version, apart from the fact that it is one the main platforms that it is working in the office.
Long story short; PC version will be delayed and we don’t know whether it’s based on the next-gen version or not.
Back in April – kudos to our reader Sid Spyker for informing us – Ubisoft revealed that Assassin’s Creed IV is being created on a high-end PC and then ported across to consoles. So, why is the PC version delayed if its the lead platform? Our guess is that Ubisoft wants to delay the PC version – that will be as good as the next-gen version – on purpose and in order to avoid hurting the sales of both the PS4 and the XBOne versions.
