Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to ship for all systems simultaneously

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will ship for all consoles on day one of its release according to the Creative Director. So does this mean that PS4 and the next Xbox will arrive sooner than expected?

Speaking in a new interview with Outside Xbox, Ubisoft's Jean Guesdon was asked if there would be any delay between next generation and current generation versions, to which he replied, "Same ship."

Sony has also confirmed a PS4 release date of "Holiday 2013" although this is likely to reply to only one or possibly two territories. Whether one of those will be Europe and when exactly the console will launch, remains to be seen.

So if things go as per normal, that means a November release date for the PS4/Nextbox. Or before that. Good to know. Hopefully its same ship in Europe...

So either we get the PS4 and Xbox 360 two earlier than we expected, or AC4 is coming out Jan/Feb 2014

I hope that this means early november release dates for the newer consoles, as opposed to a delayed AC release. Not because I care particularly about Black Flag, but it gives us an idea of release dates for next gen. And November means I can wait until after all the Christmas kiddies have found faults and broken their PS4/XB3 and I can get the fully working SKU early 2014

I don't think it means the consoles are coming earlier - remember, this is Ubisoft. The same people who put out a bunch of games on 3DS and Wii U before the consoles themselves were actually launched. I think they'll put the game out same date which will be ahead of the console launches, just like they have with Nintendo ones already recently.

Did they, because I don't remember any Wii U games being available before the consoles launch.
