@russellsparrow My WoW point would be more relevant if you hadn’t missed my point entirely. What does a patch require? Some effort, maybe? Some work on their part? And who knows how much of both of those things would be required on the part of the dev team? Like I said, if it were something simple, I’m sure they would have already done it. Since they haven’t done it, I have to assume it’s a bit more complex.
So, maybe instead of spending time, effort, and resources in order to improve upon a project that’s no longer current, they’re pooling those things into a project that is. If they were still working on AC2, then it might be worth the effort, but since they’re not,it’snot.
And I’d wager my money on the majority of people bent out of shape about the game not being replayable already own copies. I own a copy. I’m not going to sell it just because some of the lack of the features annoy me. And even if I did, it doesn’t affect Ubisoft’s profit margin. And if they did release a patch or an updated version, I wouldn’t pay for a new copy of the game. So really, what benefit would they get for releasing such a thing?
On the other hand, I know a whole lot of people who maybe wouldn’t buy the third game if some of the key features were lacking or were chunky because a few people spent a few days working on something only a handful of people complain about.
So I’m with Ubisoft for not caring about this issue. And I hope they continue to not care, and instead continue to work on future products. I appreciate their time management.
