Assassin's Creed II not in PC until 2010

In related Assassin's Creed II news, Ubisoft has announced through its Twitter feed that the PC edition will not be joining its console brethren on November 17. Instead, the publisher has opted to delay the PC edition to the first quarter of 2010, in order to allow for "a bit more time for the dev team to deliver the best quality game to you."

Notably, the original Assassin's Creed on the PC, which saw release nearly five months after the console editions, sparked a lawsuit in 2008. Ubisoft's claim stemmed from allegations that an employee at the company charged with reproducing Assassin's Creed's disc had leaked the game online a full six weeks before it was to be released at retail. Ubisoft claimed that the leaked edition of the game was downloaded more than 700,000 times, costing the publisher millions of dollars.
