Update: Ubisoft has told Polygon that the story derived from Hutchinson's comments is not correct, and that the PC version of Assassin's Creed 3 is still on track for October 30. Ubisoft PR has not responded to our requests for further comment.
The PC version of Assassin's Creed 3 is delayed beyond the October 30 release date scheduled for consoles, Ubisoft creative lead Alex Hutchinson confirmed today at a San Diego Comic-Con panel. The PC iteration is set to launch before Christmas, "near the console launch," Hutchinson said.
This confirms an earlier rumor concerning the obligatory Ubi-PC delay for Assassin's Creed 3.
