If you thought Ubisoft had bucked their trend of delaying the PC launch of their multiplatform games, think again as following the recent delay of Call of Juarez: The Cartel on PC, it has now been revealed that desktop gamers will have to wait a little longer to play From Dust, the populous-inspired god game from Another World creator Eric Chahi.
From Dust is due this week on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360, but the PC release date is now August 17th. When enquiring about Call of Juarez' similar delay, Rock Paper Shotgun
have this response from Ubi:
“Our teams work hard to ensure that all versions of our games achieve a level of polish and quality that our customers will appreciate. The development team needed a little more time to focus on the PC version [of Call of Juarez], so we adjusted the date accordingly.”
While it's an understandable situation, it doesn't explain why the PC version is the one so often singled out.
While you're waiting for the game to come out. Check out this recent gameplay trailer.
