Mouse and keyboard using gamers will be disappointed to hear that the PC version of Assassin’s Creed III will not launch alongside its current generation console peers on October 30. Instead, those folks will have to wait until November 20, which is Ubisoft’s newly-announced release date for that specific version of the historical open-world action-adventure game. That’s almost a month of extra waiting time, but it will surely be worth it if the much-anticipated sequel ends up being as great as it’s looked in pre-release footage.
