When Primal was announced back in October, Ubisoft said only that the PC edition would arrive sometime in March. No explanation for the slight delay was provided, but Ubisoft has a history of shipping the PC versions of multiplatform games after the console editions are released.

That was the case most recently with Assassin's Creed Syndicate; the Xbox One/PS4 versions debuted on October 23, while the PC edition arrived November 19. In the case of Syndicate, Ubisoft spent the extra month working on "stability and optimizing" efforts.

We've followed up with Ubisoft in an attempt to learn more about why the PC version of Primal is coming later than consoles.
