Assassin's Creed 4 PC expected 'a few weeks after' console versions

And on launch day for Xbox One and PS4

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag game director Ashraf Ismail has said the game's PC release date is likely to fall "a few weeks after" the current-gen console versions hit stores.


Ubisoft previously confirmed an Assassin's Creed 4 release date of October 29 in the US and November 1 in the UK.

Speaking to ElderGeek in a video interview, Ismail said Ubisoft Montreal is "working hard on the PC version", adding: "For our PC fans, don't worry. The game on PC looks phenomenal."

He went on to backtrack on his comments about a staggered release for the game, noting: "I'm just the creative guy, I might even be wrong about that date. It might actually be sooner if I'm wrong."

Given past form, it appears highly unlikely that Assassin's Creed 4 will release on the same day as the console versions. The first, second , third, fourth and fifth core entries in the series have all been delayed on PC or planned for release after the console versions.

Ismail also said that the Xbox One and PS4 version of Black Flag will be launch titles for the two consoles.
