A truck containing PC copies of Assassin's Creed 3 for Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg has reportedly been stolen.
All three shipments were reported to be in one truck, which criminals stole on November 14.
Ubisoft has stated that it won't affect this week's launch as copies will be sourced elsewhere. Those who pre-ordered the Join or Die edition, however, are affected as allegedly this cannot be re-manufactured.
Ubisoft has also passed on serial numbers and barcodes to retailers of the stolen games, and placed the same numbers on a blacklist preventing them from receiving online authentication.
