The PC ports of Assassin’s Creed games have always arrived later than their console counterpart. Ubisoft says its confident that all versions will launch on the same day for this outing.

Speaking in an interview with Rock Paper Shotgun producer Lesley Phord-Toy said, “We’re always aiming to ship all our games on all platforms at the same time.

“I don’t have any specific news on the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Unity, but I do know we’re planning on shipping on all three [platforms]: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. I haven’t heard any news differently than that.”

Phord-Toy added that Ubisoft is “very confident” that it will be able to ship all versions day and date.

“It can be challenging,” she said about the PC version. “PC has a variety of different hardware configurations that you can’t necessarily predict. On a console you know what’s in the box. Every customer has the same configuration for the most part, and first-parties push firmware updates so everyone has what you’re expecting to have. PCs are nowhere near as consistent. So it can be extremely challenging to try and support as many of those permutations as possible.”

Do you think this time Ubisoft will ship the PC version on the same day as consoles?

Thanks, Gamespot.

    Great, good thing they haven’t a reputation for saying exactly that about every game they’ve released in the past 5 or so years. And broken it every single time.
