If you were looking for the fourth Assassin's Creed Unity patch this week, prepare to be disappointed.
Unfortunately, Ubisoft has confirmed that the patch has been delayed. It was supposed to drop on December 15.
Ubisoft says "rigorous quality control is of paramount importance to us" and therefore, they're holding off until they can deliver on what they promised:
"As stated last week, we'd expected to release the patch today (and we know that many are anticipating its release), but we are choosing to hold off until we can give you the improvements we've promised. We are committed to delivering major performance improvements, which requires that we refurbish the Paris map and that will take a few more days to hit the high level of quality our players deserve."
Simply dubbed "Patch 4," this update will address a long list of problems, and should greatly improve performance, online matchmaking, connectivity and general stability. It's the patch that could ultimately turn Unity into the game it probably should've been at launch. The technical problems are why the title really won't be considered for many Game of the Year awards, which is sad, because the foundation was absolutely revolutionary.
