The game, developed in Montreal over a period of three years, is due for release on PC from November 20th. An Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U edition will be launched contemporaneously, along with a custom PS Vita edition.

The game will not support Windows XP, Ubisoft has announced, though a version for Windows 8 is in the pipeline. This is thought to be due to direct-X compatibilities.
