Assassin’s Creed on PC still important to Ubisoft

PC fans of the Assassin’s Creed series have always received the short end of the stick, one could say; Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed II released on PC months after the console counterparts, with the latest entry, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, yet to even be dated for the platform.

That has no bearing on the platform’s importance to Ubisoft, however, as the company assures that PC remains a focus.

“Definitely, PC is still an important platform for the franchise,” Ubisoft UK marketing boss Murray Pannell has told CVG, promising proper news shortly: “The PC version is still on track, looking good and we’re looking forward to showing some concrete details on that format soon.”

For now, Brotherhood for PC is attached to a somewhat vague Q1 2011 release window.

Meanwhile, the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have already received their first batch of downloadable goods, and are in for more later in the month.
