Ubisoft has sent out a statement to media outlets today stating that they won’t be able to access the final build of the upcoming For Honor for review until it’s publicly launched on February 14.
The reason for the delay is said to be due to the open beta (running from February 9-12) tying up the servers until launch.
Reviewers will be able to pre-load the game, but likely will not be able to begin playing until the game is available publicly or soon before then depending on when the servers go live.
As such, Hardcore Gamer will not be posting its review until the weekend after launch to give us proper time to evaluate the game. For our current thoughts on For Honor, be sure to read our latest preview.
