Ubisoft have issued a notice today, confirming that they require another fortnight of development for Assassin’s Creed Unity to “ensure that the quality of the game meets fan’s — and the team’s — loft expectations“.
Therefore, the release date for Assassin’s Creed Unity has been shifted to November 13th, 2014 in Australia and New Zealand. This release date shift will put the game’s launch in-line with Assassin’s Creed Rogue which is set to also launch on November 13th.

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. 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.
