Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Unity has been delayed but gamers won’t have to wait very much longer. The delay has pushed the release date back two weeks so gamers can now pick the game up on November 11, 2014 alongside the Assassin’s Creed Rogue title.
Announced through the Ubisoft blog, senior communications manager, Gary Steinman, has stated that the reason for the delay was to fine tune and polish the very little thing within the game.
A tiny gesture that Arno makes as he’s racing across the Parisian rooftops. A barely noticeable reaction from a solitary NPC in a crowd 3,000 deep. The subtle swaying motion of an opulent chandelier in a lavish ballroom,” he said. “It’s these little things, multiplied by the thousands, that a development team focuses on during the final push to ship a game. And with a massive open-world title like Assassin’s Creed Unity, all those little things add up fast. Toss in the fact that Unity has been built from the ground up as a new-gen Assassin’s Creed–and that final straight-line sprint to the finish suddenly feels like an obstacle course laden with curves, hurdles, and pitfalls.
Because the Assassin’s Creed Unity video game title will be the first title to reach the most current generation consoles, developers had to build from the ground up. The team has expressed their progress on the game but has stated that there are so many new little details about the latest console generation that are still being discovered.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will be releasing on November 11, 2014 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
