Swiss games retailer World of Games may have inadvertently leaked the official title of previous-generation Assassin’s Creed title, in the works over at Ubisoft. Previously known as Assassin’s Creed: Comet, the new listing suggests it will be known as Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, tying in nicely with a gamescom reveal at Cologne in a fortnight’s time.
Of course these things need taking with a pinch of salt but, having seen hide nor hair of it since leaking earlier this year, we’d expect retailers to be aware of its existence as they’re ordering in stock for the holiday season. The listing only provides details of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, with no word of a PC release just yet…
According to the listing Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is scheduled to launch alongside Assassin’s Creed Unity on October 28th worldwide. Leaked info suggest players will take on the role of templar Shay, and will once more herald the return of the nautical antics from AC3 and ACIV: Black Flag, this time centered around New York and America’s east coast.
The previously leaked information that Shay is a templar goes hand in hand with the new title, suggesting the player will be taking on the role of a rogue agent, or double agent. Ubisoft has quite a large presence at gamescom this year so we would expect Assassin’s Creed Rogue to be officially announced during the press conference on August 13th.
Will you be disappointed if Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is last-generation consoles only, or are you happy with Assassin’s Creed Unity? Will AC: Rogue do enough to make it a worthwhile purchase? Get your thinking caps on and head down to the comments below!
