Assassin’s Creed: Unity Delayed by Two Weeks, Now Releases the Same Day as Rogue

ACUnity_0003_Layer_1

Do you remember back when October was so full of games that everyone went in to panic mode on how, exactly, they were going to afford them all? I suppose you could remove half of them and we’d still feel the same way, but yet another big release will be missing its original October date in Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

As the first Assassin’s Creed title released solely on current-gen consoles (and apparently Ubisoft doesn’t consider the Wii Ucurrent-gen“), Unity will now release in North America on November 11th, which is also the same date Assassin’s Creed: Rogue launches on PS3 and Xbox 360. European consumers will receive Unity on November 13th, while Rogue releases worldwide on the 11th.

Why the delay? “As we got close to the finish, we realized we were near the target but still needed a bit more time to hone some of the details to make sure Assassin’s Creed Unity is exceptional,” stated Vincent Pontbriand, senior producer at Ubisoft. Delays aren’t always bad, and it’s just two weeks. Whatever makes the game better, right?

With two massive releases in one of the most popular gaming franchises today, is anyone else in Assassin’s Creed overload? Which one will you be playing first? Personally, I’m a lot more excited at the prospect of playing a Templar in Rogue, but Unity and its co-op multiplayer looks gorgeous. I need them both, that’s a given, but where will you start?

  1. I hate to say this but I haven’t played any of the Assassin’s Creed games even though I own I think two of them. I do wish a game would just come out on my birthday (October 14th), that would just make me happy. I was really looking forward to it coming out, the game looks amazing!

      1. Yeah, that, and some of them just didn’t hold my interest long enough to finish them. I always get swept up in their open worlds, take a break, and completely forget what was going on in the story.

      2. That’s something that irks me as well, but I also tend to juggle one or two games at a time. I just have bad luck with AC, I think? I loved Black Flag and finished it through to the end, same with Libration HD, but I can’t tell you just how many times I’ve started and restarted 2 and 3.

      3. Oh man, I’m am stuck on Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts, I keep going from one game to the next but can’t seem to beat them, makes me angry!

      4. I am also victim to FFX, haha. My girlfriend and I were so excited to play the Remaster, but we started playing something else about 3 hours in and never went back.

  2. After Black Flag, I don’t want to play another AC again for a while. Kenway was horrible to me…Ezio would have pwned Kenways face in like an egg. :/
