There are a handful of developers who support their games for PC without making even a single compromise, and Ubisoft doesn’t feature in this list. If you disagree with me then this latest move of the Ubisoft will surely change your view – Ubisoft has quietly removed HDR support for the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Origins, and YES – we have proof of it. Before the launch of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ubisoft promised HDR support for all versions of the game via a post on their official blog. If you go through the blog post now, it has been updated – PC has been removed from it, only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X has been mentioned.
This is what the paragraph on HDR support for Assassin’s Creed Origins reads now:
“IMPORTANT: There will be another Title Update available in early November, which will most notably include 4K and Dolby Atmos support for Xbox One X and additional support for HDR on Xbox One S/Xbox One X and PS4/PS4 Pro.“
This is what this same line reads previously (Thanks to WebArchive):
“IMPORTANT: There will be another Title Update available in early November, which will most notably include 4K and Dolby Atmos support for Xbox One X and support for HDR displays for all platforms.“
When a fan asked Ubisoft Support via Twitter about an ETA on HDR support for the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Origins? The executive replied: “Hi there, we have no official plans to release HDR on PC at this point in time.”
This is clearly a case of Promising something before the launch of the game and then taking your words back without making an official announcement for it. A clear case of MISLEADING PC gaming community. What do you guys have to say about this behavior of Ubisoft and the development team behind Assassin’s Creed Origins?
