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."

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.

Err yeah no, as usual you get all confrontational over fairly innocent things. It was a pretty simple point about a single thing in your post and I've already addressed the rest in portions you didn't quote. As for series history, I agree that it matters in terms of expectations from consumers (just like we all said in the Diablo thread) but I don't think people are really out of line with their concerns - the language here is vague and Ubisoft has a varied track history with PC support in general. If any publisher was going to pull a stunt like that, it would be Ubisoft.
