Ubisoft's past record with PC ports is mixed at best. Though some, like Far Cry 4, have held up pretty well, for every success there's been a buggy, unplayable launch like Unity's or a consumer-punishingCôté promises that with Syndicate, things will be better.
"We've got an internal team that's dedicated to the PC version, and one of the things that I'm happy about is that we're really taking our time with the PC version to really make it shine," he said in an interview
As I say, we've heard this before, and we all know how the Unity launch. The again, that game had serious issues across all platforms, so perhaps with an extra year to sort out the issues, Ubisoft can come up with a better effort all round.
"We're working really hard on optimizing the game, making it run smoother on a wider range of PCs," says Côté. "We're really dedicating a team to working on this and making sure it shines."
Assassins' Creed: Syndicate is out on next-gen consoles this October, with a PC launch planned shortly after.
