Ubisoft “looking into” a PC version of Assassin’s Creed Rogue
Ever since both of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed games were revealed, a lot of gamers have expressed their desire to experience AC Rogue on the current-generation consoles and PC, as well. While Ubisoft has yet to make any kind of announcement regarding said versions, Assassin’s Creed Rogue’s Associate Producer – Karl Von Der Luhe – had stated that the French publisher has heard gamers asking about the potential enhanced editions. “The game is being developed for 360 and PS3, we’ve heard a lot of response requesting a PC version so we’ll be looking into that very soon,” said the Producer.
If you’re new to Assassin’s Creed Rogue, know that the game takes place in the mid-18th century during the Seven Years’ War, and follows Shay Cormac – an assassin-turned-templar. Shay is eventually betrayed and abandoned by the assassins after an assignment ends in disaster, and so turns to the templar order, offering his services as an assassin hunter. Given access to near-limitless resources, Shay sets out to exact his revenge, with his actions having dire consequences for the future of the brotherhood. Gameplay in Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be similar to that of Black Flag, with a mixture of ship-based naval exploration and third-person land-based exploration. Additionally, familiar characters like Assassin’s Creed III’s Achilles Davenport or Haytham Kenway will also make a return, alongside Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s Adéwalé.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue launches on November 11th in North America and November 13th in Europe, exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Now, regarding those possible PlayStation 4/Xbox One/PC versions – given the fact that Assassin’s Creed: Liberation managed to be ported from the PlayStation Vita to the PS3, 360, and PC, I wouldn’t see why Ubisoft wouldn’t port Rogue to your platform of choice, as well. Maybe after Assassin’s Creed Unity’s buzz dies down and just before Ubisoft announces 2015’s main instalment?
