The trailer posted below and the Facebook post mentioned have all been taken down. Was this announced too soon? Or is Ubisoft changing the date and thus preparing a new trailer?

We'll find out soon enough in the next episode of "Ubisoft tries to release Assassin's Creed Identity"


Yesterday we mentioned how Assassin's Creed Identity was pulled from the New-Zeland App Store after a lengthy soft-launch period.

Well, it turns out that was in preparation of the game's release, coming your way February 25th according to this trailer:

But it might not be that simple!

A post on Facebook on the official South American page of Ubisoft says that the game is actually out on... February 1st. So which is it?

I tend to think that the trailer is accurate or it would have been pulled. But you never know - we'll update the story if we hear more.

The game is coming to "smartphones and tablets" so in theory that should mean that the game will be out for Android and iOS at the same time.

But really, things can't ever go smoothly for Assassin's Creed Identity can they?
