Technical director Sebastien Viard made a tweet stating that the previous minimum and recommended PC specs are not real, and that the actual minimum and recommended PC specs will be lower.
@Pixel67_FR Hello. Ce ne sont pas les configs officielles. Les vraies specs sortiront bientôt et seront moins élevées que celles-ci 🙂

Earlier it was reported that Ubisoft accidentally posted the base PC specification requirement via UPlay which pretty much spread like wildfire in the PC gaming community.
The requirement was that along with 64-bit OS, it required that one should have a quad core processor as a bare minimum. However, a 8 core processor was posted as recommended spec, followed by GTX 560Ti and 8GB memory.
