Okay so pushed back might be a bit of an exaggeration since it was never formally announced, however up until now we were told the PC release date would match those of the Xbox 360 and PS3. This has never been true in the past, but we played along. Turns out if you were one of the countless masses who expressed cynicism at this statement, you’d have been in the right.
The release date has been pushed to November 20th for North America, and November 23rd for those in the UK. The new date gives the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions almost a full month head start, with both editions planning to hit shelves for console players on October 31st. Ubisoft has never really done a good job of explaining why the PC version of their games are typically launched a month or more apart for the console versions, though many have theorized that it has something to do with piracy.
