PS4 release date in October or November, hints Assassin's Creed IV director

Assassin's Creed creative director Jean Guesdon has indicated that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will launch simultaneously on all platforms later this year.
Guesdon made his comments during an interview with Outside Xbox (via Videogamer). Shortly after asking about the struggles developing for current- and next-gen platforms simultaneously, the interviewer asked if a delay would occur between "all the versions." To this, Guesdon replied, "Same ship."
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is currently slated for North American release on October 29 and EU release on November 1. Presumably, then, PlayStation 4 (and the next-generation Xbox) will have launched by that time, in both North America and European territories.
The wording of Guesdon's reply isn't entirely concrete, so it's best to take this news with a small grain of salt. Still, Guesdon's comments echo those of PSU's industry sources, who indicated exclusively to PSU that PS4 will, in fact, launch in November 2013.

My guess would be mid to end of November. This will be a title sitting around in peoples hands a bit before the console hits.

The lack of hardware has never stopped a game release before. the Game could commout a week or even 2 before the system comes out, but seriously ...really not ready for AC4.

So we're about 8 months out with a LOAD of reveals in store for us in between? Sounds good to me! I like that Sony didn't blow their whole load right away. This way they have enough goodies stored away to keep the fans fed while they're begging for launch to come. Also as far as the launch date goes, if Sony can launch before Christmas I think it would help to snag a lot of Xbox fans over because a lot of people are impatient when it comes to new electronics.. Even if the nextbox only launches a few months after the PS4 I think it will be a decent advantage for Sony.

Just because it Ships at the same time does not mean release at the same time....just convenience. Besides who would think they skip releasing PS4 before Black Friday? They would be insane for them not to.
