Ubisoft have confirmed that the PC version of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood will no longer retail alongside its PS3 and Xbox 360 counterparts. Instead, it has been pushed back to some time in the first quarter of 2011.
Ubisoft would not comment on the reason for the delay.
Details for the beta were released earlier. Those who preorder any of the retail editions are eligible and it'll start on October 4 exclusively on the PlayStation 3.
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is the followup to Ezio's tale in Assassin's Creed 2 and hits store shelves on November 18, 2010, for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
