It says a lot about Ubisoft's habit of delaying games that even its own announcements sound kind of tongue in cheek. "Some news that will shock gamers to their very core... some of our release dates have changed!" said Ubi's Facebook page today, in referencing to Far Cry 3 being pushed back to a November 29 launch this year.
What is surprising, is that so far Assassin's Creed III is entirely on-track. Amazeballs. Other games that have been delayed include Rocksmith, and Just Dance 4, which have moved to dates that I am sure no one actually cares about.
The Far Cry 3 delay is being put down to the usual reasons of wanting to make a better game, yadda yadda.
The annoying thing about this date shift is that Far Cry is now tantalisingly close to the date date where draft R18 legislation will come into practice.
Ubi, maybe you could delay the game a little bit longer...
