Ubisoft has no plans to bring HDR support to Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ PC version

Over the weekend, Ubisoft has been doing a lot of damage control after announcing that the company has “no official plans” to bring HDR support to Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ PC version. 

This announcement came from Ubisoft’s support Twitter account, despite the fact that the same account Tweeted posts that stated that HDR support was coming to “all platforms” and Ubisoft’s own “Launch Essentials” article also stated that HDR support would be coming to the PC version of the game. 

The two links above are using web archive services, which show both Ubisoft’s tweet and article in their original forms. Since Ubisoft’s announcement that HDR support was not coming to PC the company has amended their articles to only mention HDR support on PS4 and Xbox One and deleted all tweets mentioning HDR support on PC.

While HDR support on today’s PC displays are rare and only a minority of PC gamers can make use of the feature at this time, it is sad to see Ubisoft backtrack on their promises to deliver the feature on PC, deleting evidence to the contrary instead of stating that the company’s PR team made a mistake or that they ran into technical limitations that prevented the feature coming to PC. 

At a minimum, Ubisoft has misled consumers about HDR support on the PC platform and refuses to own up to it, going for the “I didn’t say that” response rather than tell the truth about the subject.
