Ubisoft has pushed back the PC edition of Assassin’s Creed III a few weeks from the console game’s October 31 launch. The publisher today confirmed that the latest installment in its open-world stealth action series will arrive in North America on November 20, with a UK debut trailing on November 23.
For Ubisoft, delaying PC versions of its games behind their console counterparts has become standard practice. In the past year alone, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Driver: San Francisco, Rayman Origins, Call of Juarez: The Cartel, Shoot Many Robots, and Babel Rising have all made their PC debuts weeks–if not months–after their Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions.
Set during the American Revolution, Assassin’s Creed III features a new protagonist named Connor who will involve himself in the ongoing struggle between the Templars and the Assassins. The game is being built by Ubisoft Montreal and six collaborating studios on a new engine called Ubisoft-AnvilNext.
