Assassin’s Creed Rogue announced for last-gen consoles

[UPDATE] Ubisoft has now formally announced Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Below are some highlights.

  • Launching November 11 for Xbox 360 and PS3; no mention of PC was made in the announcement
  • Developed by Ubisoft Sofia in collaboration with Ubisoft offices in Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan, and Bucharest
  • Set in the middle of the 18th century during the Seven Years’ War
  • Players can explore various locations in North America, including the North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley, and New York
  • You play as a Templar named Shay Patrick Cormac
  • Completes the Assassin’s Creed North American saga that began with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

The original story is below.

The rumors were right. Today, Ubisoft officially announced Assassin’s Creed Rogue, a new game in the series coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this fall alongside Assassin’s Creed Unity, which is launching only for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. You play an Assassin-turned-Templar named Shay Patrick Cormac, and you’ll navigate a ship across the North Atlantic. Other locations include the Appalachian River Valley and a "reimagined" New York, according to the game’s reveal announcement from Game Informer.

"Assassin’s Creed Rogue is sort of the cornerstone of the Kenway trilogy," a Ubisoft designer says in Game Informer’s video interview. "So Shay Patrick Cormac is an Assassin who will turn against his mentor and his brotherhood and join the Templar cause."

Assassin’s Creed Rogue takes place during the Seven Years’ War, and bridges the gap between Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed III. Though Assassin’s Creed Rogue and Assassin’s Creed Unity are set on different continents, it’s possible that the storylines will indeed overlap. "The Seven Years’ War is part of what lead to France’s financial troubles, and it’s hinted that Shay has even deeper ties to Unity,"Game Informer writes.

No official release date for Assassin’s Creed Rogue has been announced, but a previous report suggested it is launching November 11, which is a couple weeks after Assassin’s Creed Unity. It is also unclear if a PC version of Assassin’s Creed Rogue is in the works.
