Gamestop Postpones Assassin’s Creed III Midnight Launch Due To Hurricane Sandy

While most of the world is looking forward to the release of Assassin’s Creed III, those in the Northeast of the US will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the new release from Ubisoft.

On Monday afternoon, Gamestop announced that due to Hurricane Sandy their stores that are in the path of the storm will remain closed and the planned midnight opening has been cancelled for all stores in the Northeast.

The company shared this from their Facebook Page. 

"Our top priority is the safety of our employees and customers. In compliance with directives issued by state and local authorities, stores in the path of Hurricane Sandy will remain closed until it is safe to re-open and midnight openings for Assassin's Creed III have been cancelled in the northeast. Customers should check with their local stores for details on when we will re-open"

We wish the safety for everybody affected by the storm. The launch trailer is below as Assassin's Creed III is now out for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The Wii U and PC versions are also slated to be released out next month.
