Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Announced For PS3 and Xbox 360

Ubisoft has officially announced Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, an installment targeted for the previous-generation consoles.

The game is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia in collaboration with Ubisoft Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios. According to the developer, Rogue is the “darkest chapter in the franchise” to date.

The game’s lead character this time around is Shay Patrick Cormac, a Templar that is tasked with hunting down Assassins. In the storyline, he’s betrayed by the Assassin brotherhood after a mission goes wrong. Seeing that he has his own ship called the Morrigan, Cormac will be sailing around the Northern Atlantic Ocean to boast his team and take his revenge on those who left him to die.

“We know that there are many Assassin’s Creed fans with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles who want to get their hands on a new Assassin’s Creed game this year,” Ubisoft Sofia director Martin Capel explained.

“Assassin’s Creed Rogue completes the North American saga started with Assassin’s Creed 3 and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and gives previous generation console owners an exclusive opportunity to experience fan-requested features, such as playing as a Templar.”

Ubisoft has hinted that Cormac’s story will somehow tie in with he Kenway family saga that began in Assassin’s Creed 3 and then continued in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will release on November 11 for the PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
