Assassin’s Creed Rogue will come to PC according to a new report from IGN. The game was previously only announced for last-gen consoles, specifically PS3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately for PC players, the game will not hit at the same time as those releases, coming some time in 2015 as opposed to the console release date of November 11th. The reason given for this delay was “production reasons”, likely as a result of the PC platform being added to development later.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue is the companion piece to the new-gen release Assassin’s Creed Unity. The latter game will only be hitting PS4, Xbox One, and PC. When asked if Rogue would also hit the PS4 and Xbox One Ubisoft simply responded that they “can’t talk about this right now”. Considering the immense sales the game could gain by being made available on the additional systems, it does seem like a logical choice in the end. It is likely though that no announcement would be made until after the current version is released, so they don’t cannibalize their sales.
The game is set during the 18th century, some time during The Seven Years War. Breaking from tradition, you will play as a former Assassin, who has joined up with the Templars.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 11th, and the PC version will be released some time in 2015.
