Rogue

Assassin’s Creed Unity is coming this year, and it’s shaping up to be one of the more…*ahem* revolutionary titles in the series. Set in that very famous era of cutting rich French people’s heads off, it’s coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC only. Don’t feel bad, those of you stuck with those old-gen consoles, there’s one coming for you, too. Previously rumoured to be called Assassin’s Creed Comet, it’s now quite probably set to be called Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

That’s according to a retailer in Confederato Helvetia,  World of Games, who posted the game up for pre-order yesterday, before summarily yanking the listing The internet, however, never forgets.

According to previous rumours, Assassin’s Creed Comet, now ostensibly called Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, will put players in the digital body of a Templar named Shay. The game’s purportedly set in New York in 1758, and will have the elements of the much beloved Black Flag; namely the sailing.

If Assassin’s Creed: rogue is a real thing (and we’re inclined to believe it is), we’ll probably be seeing more of it at Gamescom. What do you think?  Do we need two filly-fledged Assassin’s Creed games in a year? Or is it actually rather nice of Ubisoft to make a game for those who’re unable to jump in to the new generation, while making another one that makes the best use of more modern technology without making last-gen sacrifices?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
