There are two Assassin's Creed games coming out this year: Assassin's Creed Rogue, which will let you play as a Templar for the first time in the series, and Assassin's Creed Unity, set in Paris during the French Revolution. According to Ubisoft, if you think that's a little too much Assassin's Creed you're in the "vocal minority."
"There are the hardcore Assassin's Creed fans that are happy to play two games and there are of course many fans who have not yet made that financial move to go to next-gen," Assassin's Creed Rogue producer Karl von der Luhe told Eurogamer. "And these are the guys that we're really catering for—they're thankful for the fact that they will have a compelling Assassin's Creed game to play on either their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3."
According to Luhe, Ubisoft decided to release two Assassin's Creed games this year a long time ago, but he didn't say when it began production on Assassin's Creed Rogue. However, he said that the team is confident with the amount of time it had, even if it had a shorter development cycle than Assassin's Creed Unity, which went into development shortly after Assassin's Creed Brotherhood in 2010.
Assassin's Creed Unity launches October 28 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and. PC. Meanwhile, Assassin's Creed Rogue comes to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 11. We published previews for both games this week, which you can read through the links below.
