Weâ€™re under review embargo at the following link.
We often talk about being a fly on the wall during certain conversations, though the one that must have taken place at Ubisoft wasnâ€™t likely as interesting as we might make it out to be in our heads. There likely wasnâ€™t any push back saying that Assassinâ€™s Creed Unity wasnâ€™t ready for release. Probably just questions about if a day one patch would fix it or something along those lines. Hell, it may not have been any question at all. Pre-order numbers were probably enough to justify release. Told PR to make sure the review embargoes were far enough out to make any cancellations negligible and then ship it.
Whatever the case may be, the problems with Ubisoft as well as the matchmaking issues and day one patch needed for Microsoftâ€™s big Halo collection on Xbox One made for a pretty depressing week to enjoy this hobby. Nothing works when you pay for it anymore and thereâ€™s a chance even after you pay for it, it may still not work.
