Ubisoft has revealed some new details about the PC version of For Honor. According to the big publisher, the team responsible for the PC version is Blue Byte; the team behind titles like The Settlers, Anno and Battle Isle (as well as the post-launch content support for Rainbow Six: Siege).
Blue Byte’s Benedikt Grindel wrote:
“PC has traditionally been the strongest platform in Germany, and after early hits like The Settlers and Battle Isle, it became the studio’s lead platform. The team is absolutely passionate about PC gaming, and most of our developers are die-hard PC gamers.”
Grindel went ahead and claimed that the PC version of For Honor will play and feel like a PC game.
“It needs to have a PC look and feel, but it is also a balancing act. PC is the most powerful and diverse platform to develop for, so it’s about pushing the game to the limits of new hardware, while still keeping it accessible to a broad audience of PC gamers.”
It will be interesting to see whether Blue Byte will be able to deliver what it has promised.
For Honor is currently planned for a February 14th release!

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. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
