The release of Assassin's Creed Unity has been pushed back two weeks, Ubisoft has announced.
That makes its official European launch date November 13. It was due to launch worldwide on October 28.
The date change means Unity will now arrive in the same week as the last-gen offering Assassin's Creed Rogue.
"As we got close to the finish, we realised we were near the target but still needed a bit more time to hone some of the details to make sure Assassin's Creed Unity is exceptional," said producer Vincent Pontbriand.
"We sincerely appreciate players' commitment to the game and their patience. It's just a couple more weeks. And it's going to be worth it."
