Far Cry 3, Just Dance 4, Rocksmith EU delayed

After spending E3 ramping up the hype for its showcase games, Ubisoft has pulled the rug out from underneath us again, announcing new release dates for a trio of titles.

Firstly, Far Cry 3 has been pushed backwards from September to late November, arriving in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia on November 29th, and in North America five days later, on December 4th. In happier news, those dates are confirmed for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, squishing those pesky platform-specific delay rumours.

For more about Far Cry 3, take a look at our brand new video interview, where producer Dan Hay chats about the company’s special brand of insanity.

Next on the list: Just Dance 4, out on October 2nd in Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia, and a week later on October 9th in the US. This one’s headed to Wii, Xbox 360 (with Kinect) and PS3 (with Move) – if you’re not convinced yet, hang around a while and pick it up when it arrives alongside the Wii U during its launch window.

Admittedly, Just Dance 4 is really just more of the same, which is not a bad thing, really. This time around you get Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen, Moves Like Jagger from Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera, and – more exciting than either of those two? Rock Lobster by The B-52s and the one and only Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. Yes, really.


Music gaming fans – take a big deep breath – Rocksmith has been pushed back by a further two weeks, to September 27th in Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia. Of course, we’ve already been waiting a year for the game to arrive locally, so an extra couple of weeks won’t hurt.

Still, if you’ve been hanging out for the chance to plug your real guitar into your gaming console and rock out with some of the biggest names in music history, that fortnight is an annoyance. Even worse, if you want it on PC, you’ll have to wait until October 18th.

…after all of that, though, there is some good news: Assassin’s Creed III is entirely on track and set to arrive on October 30th for PS3 and Xbox 360, and November 23rd for PC.
