PC fans of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series are used to waiting until a few weeks after their console chums to get their hands on the game, but for Assassin's Creed: Unity the developers are promising that things will be different.

“We’re always aiming to ship all our games on all platforms at the same time," said Phord-Troy. “I don’t have any specific news on the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Unity, but I do know we’re planning on shipping on all three (platforms): Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. I haven’t heard any news differently than that.”
When asked why Ubisoft has had trouble with PC delays “It can be challenging. PC has a variety of different hardware configurations that you can’t necessarily predict. On a console you know what’s in the box. Every customer has the same configuration for the most part, and first-parties push firmware updates so everyone has what you’re expecting to have.

This time around, though, Phord-Troy suggests that things will be different. “Like I said, Ubi has been very successful at achieving same-ship in the recent past, so we’re very confident that we’ll be able to do the same for Assassin’s Creed Unity.”
Assassin's Creed: Unity is coming October 28, 2014 for PS4, Xbox One and hopefully PC.
