I have no information on release date but I really do not think it will be mid-November. There have been some commercial issues which I cannot discuss or disclose on here but which will have affected the ship date.
It's annoying and frustrating as the game is finished.
OK ... I have to pre-cursor this by saying that I am not able to communicate announcents concerning ship dates etc. This will be done by Hip/Ubisoft. I have no idea what they are thinking in terms of getting the game out other than knowing that they want to ship it asap. I also have no influence with them at all in this regard.
However, I know that it is very unlikely that we will ship mid-November. I think it is pretty much impossible from what I know of the manufacturing pipelines. I think it may be possible to get the PC version out by then but not the console versions.
I cannot discuss or disclose why ... but it has nothing to do with the development of the game.
