Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed: Rogue is currently only announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but it might see a PC release, too. This is particularly weird because Rogue is scheduled to launch, for the two aforementioned consoles, on the same day as Assassin's Creed: Unity is scheduled for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Unless they are planning a delayed PC launch, PC gamers might receive two games, in the same franchise, on the same day.
I would have to expect that its PC release would need to be staggered though, right? I mean, how would they market two similar games at the same time? In particular, how would they market two fairly long, similar games at the same time? I mean, thanks Ubisoft, but it just seems like an unnecessary risk of market cannibalization.
About that evidence, though. PC Gamer apparently found reference to the title in the Brazillian software ratings board and the title was mentioned on one of Ubisoft's Uplay page for the PC. Those are pretty good pieces of evidence, although we need to take their word on it, which is implicitly trusting screenshots from NeoGAF. Also, PC Gamer really needs to link to the exact thread at NeoGAF because it was buried under the first several pages by the time I got there.
Assassin's Creed: Unity launches on November 11th, 2014 (not the 14th). Rogue — maybe?
No thank you going to be
No thank you going to be another crap port
I’ll still take ship combat
I’ll still take ship combat over the monotonous assassination quests. Plus this time you play as a Templar. I really hope this comes out for the PC, i will buy this not Unity with no naval combat.
There was enough call from PC
There was enough call from PC gamers to get this on PC and ubisoft seems like they might been listening.
I’m totally up for purchasing
I’m totally up for purchasing both.
III is one of the few games I
III is one of the few games I play anymore but any I do play are on PC only. Like one poster- AC can get monotonous but battle at sea was fun. Still, I may purchase it if only because I think console-only releases are a bad idea game makers need to get over with.
A lot of games I’ll never play(=buy) because they insisted on being Xbox-only, et al.
