Ubisoft is working on Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. However, it seems that Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster and Liberation remaster are also coming to Nintendo Switch.
A listing for Assassin’s Creed 3 + Liberation Collection has appeared on European retailer, Herni-svet. According to the listing, Assassin’s Creed 3 for Nintendo Switch will launch on February 15, 2019, ahead of March 2019 release of PC and current-gen versions.
According to the listing, the Switch version of the game will cost 35 EURO or around $40. But, given that it is just a leak and Ubisoft is yet to officially announce the Nintendo Switch version, take it with a grain of salt.

Also, the remaster will see an increased resolution to 1080p on base consoles. The following are the list of improvements the remastered game will bring.
- Resolution upscale allowing you to play in 4K & HDR on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC, and 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One.
- Higher resolution textures
- New character models
- New lighting rendering system : Physically Based Rendering
- Denser crowd, environments and VFX
Assassin’s Creed 3 originally launched in 2012 and it was clearly a rushed game. There was a slew of issues with the game including invisible walls, low FPS and more. With the remaster, Ubisoft wants to correct its past mistakes. It remains to be seen how well Ubisoft handles the upcoming remaster.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the latest entry in the franchise. While the game itself was well received but, the Legacy of the First Blade episode 2 ending was criticized for taking away player choice.
In the aftermath of the criticism, Ubisoft issued an apology. Not only that, Ubisoft is now working to fix the DLC ending and will soon release a patch that will fix the ending.
Reading through player responses of our new DLC for Legacy of the First Blade, Shadow Heritage, we want to extend an apology to players disappointed by a relationship your character partakes in. The intention of this story was to explain how your character’s bloodline has a lasting impact on the Assassins, but looking through your responses it is clear that we missed the mark.
Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster is an open-world stealth action game in development at Ubisoft for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Currently, the remaster is part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass and won’t be sold separately.
