Ubisoft: Play Assassin's Creed 3 PC With A Controller

There's a preview of Assassin's Creed 3 on GameSpy with quotes from Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Alex Hutchinson about what to expect from the stealth/action sequel. The author deserves extra points for the concluding Q&A expressing skepticism that the PC edition of the game will be released alongside the console editions. On another PC-related topic, they learn that their professed "love" and plans for "supporting" the PC does not include putting time into mouse and keyboard support (thanks Destructoid). Here's word:
Sadly the PC version won't get much special treatment, he admitted: "We're definitely supporting PC, we love PC, but I think it'll be PC with a controller. I don't see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup. I think if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin's Creed, you have a controller."

Regarding fixed controls, I'm pretty sure I've seen you argue about games needing rebindable key support.

Do you see me arguing something about that here? Typical Verno trying to start an argument with me where there is none to be had.

I don't play AC on PC, so this doesn't effect me. All I said was it's no different than their previous AC releases on PC. Most people here complaining about the quote are jumping to the conclusion his statement equals no mouse/keyboard controls, when it does not. This also leads me to believe the people complaining about it have never bought an AC PC game and probably never intended to anyways.

Should there be customizable controls? Yes absolutely. Should people be shocked when Ubisoft don't included it yet again? No. Will some idiots jump to the conclusion this means no mouse/keyboard controls at all? Clearly. Whatever false information will serve their ranting needs.
