Ubisoft says that they will definitely be supporting the PC for their future releases, and that includes Assassin’s Creed 3. However, they say they do not care much for the mouse/keyboard control options, and that the game should be played with a controller when it comes out. However, the game will support classic PC control inputs.
“We’re definitely supporting PC,” said creative director Alex Hutchinson in an interview with GameSpy. “”We love PC, but I think it’ll be PC with a controller.
“I don’t see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup. I think if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin’s Creed, you have a controller.”
Assassin’s Creed 3 releases in October for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. It’s also set to release on the Wii U, but a release date is as of yet unspecified.
