Hail Mighty Readers and Followers of the Calloused Thumbs,
Our friends at Ubisoft have sent a couple of bits of news for us to bring to you. Firstly we'll start with the good stuff, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is now set for a worldwide release date of the 29th October 2013. Yes, you read that right the 29th October. They've also included a special little piece about Edward Kenway that really whets your appetite:
Here's the statement from Ubisoft:
“Our ambition from the start with Watch_Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming. It is with this in mind that we’ve made the tough decision to delay the release until Spring 2014.
We know a lot of you are probably wondering ‘why now?’ We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and during other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion is what drives us."
