Slippery When Whetted

assassin's creed

Much info appeared in Ubisoft and Take-Two’s press releases that appeared last night, which were full of words like “fiscal” that confuse and scare me. They also include the slippy-slidey nature of a bunch of their PC releases. So what do we know?

Ubi’s Assassin’s Creed is going to take an extra couple of weeks before it’s on our machines. Sneaking out of March, it’s now hiding in a hay cart until April 11th.

However, despite reports you might have read, and indeed despite the information in the press release itself, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (originally slated for March 28th) will not be out on the same day as Creed. Instead, it’s set for April 17th, which the astute will note is not a Friday – those crazy kids.

Take-Two, meanwhile, look further ahead for their delays (as well as confirming BioShock 2 for 2009).


Borderlands was originally set for this Christmas, but is now plonked into “fiscal 2009”, which could mean as far away as October 2009. Take-Two explains to the money men that this is “in order to allow additional development time for this highly anticipated game and provide a better balance in the release of Take-Two’s triple-A titles.”

They also give Mafia II a “fiscal 2009” label, having gobbled up Illusion in January. No date has appeared for GTA IV on PC.
