Last week, Ubisoft confirmed Assassin's Creed Unity for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. But that's not the only Assassin's Creed game launching this fall, according to a new report today from Kotaku. A game called Assassin's Creed Comet will launch this holiday season for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (no word on Wii U) and lets you play as a Templar, sources have told the website.

Assassin's Creed Comet will reportedly be set in North America and have you play as a Templar named Shay. Of course, the Templars have traditionally served as the main antagonist group for the entire Assassin's Creed series, so this would be a major shift in design.

The game will also supposedly let players travel to New York and "do a great deal of sailing" in the Atlantic Ocean. Kotaku's sources described Assassin's Creed Comet as a cross between Assassin's Creed III and the Freedom Cry DLC for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Characters from past Assassin's Creed titles, like Haytham Kenway and Adewale, are also reportedly set to appear in Assassin's Creed Comet.

Ubisoft declined to comment on the report today about Assassin's Creed Comet, so you should take this information with a grain of salt for now. That said, Kotaku's sources were right about Assassin's Creed Unity, so it might not be long before Ubisoft makes a formal announcement.
