It’s starting to look more and more likely that Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be seeing an HD release on current-gen consoles.
The latest indicator that this is the case comes from Korea, where the Korean Rating Board rated Assassin’s Creed Rogue HD for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
This isn’t the first time that an HD version of this game recently surfaced either. It was only just about a week ago that Italian retailers ePrice, ReluxShop, and Webster all listed the alleged Assassin’s Creed Rogue HD for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to be released on March 15, 2018.
Though still technically unconfirmed, the coming of an Assassin’s Creed Rogue HD is hardly surprising. Debuting on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, it was the last title to be released prior to the series’ transition to current-gen consoles. Furthermore, the game remains one of the strongest entries in the series, so it was only a matter of time before Ubisoft sought to profit off it more, instead of just letting it sit with just the one PC release from 2015.
Overall, this looks like a larger push by Ubisoft to capitalize off the ongoing success of Assassin’s Creed Origins, which has done so well that boss Yver Guillemot recently proclaimed the series “is officially back.” In fact it was just yesterday that Ubisoft announced it would giving away Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on PC to users of its proprietary Uplay client (available from Dec. 12-18, so be on the lookout).
No doubt all this Assassin’s Creed news is making fans a bit anxious, so here’s to hoping we get a formal announcement from Ubisoft in the coming weeks.
