Unbelievable! Assassin’s Creed: Unity Gets Delayed
I have three words for you: this surprises nobody.
I have some more words for you: I’m happy as an otter who just cracked an oyster open about this because now AC: Unity releases one day after my exams end. Go go next-gen video game delays!
Perhaps UCT students will be the only ones happy about this delay.
It’s hardly a shock anymore. In fact, it’s a surprise when a game does not get delayed. Unity joins The Evil Within, Halo 5, The Division, Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Battlefield: Hardline and a few more, whose names escape me, on the list of games scheduled for release in 2014 that have either been pushed further into 2014 or all the way right into 2015.
What’s next? Are we going to delay betas for games too? Wait, this just in. The beta for PS4 exclusive Deep Down has been pushed to 2015. So there’s that…
The evidence is damning though, publishers are clearly trying to rush games out and I can almost guarantee that Unity will release with more than a few bugs.
Unless the delay is simply to move it out of the hell that is October because by the time October 28th rolls around people will have no money due to all the other games releasing in that month. Then again, by then they should have been paid.
According to Ubisoft, Unity needed more time to be exceptional.
“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,” says Vincent Pontbriand, senior producer at Ubisoft.
“We sincerely appreciate players’ commitment to the game and their patience. It’s just a couple more weeks. And it’s going to be worth it.”
So how much longer will you have to wait to go all neck-stabby on people? If you’re really itching to stab people then grab a knife and go forth into the world. If you fear incarceration then stick around until November 13.
