Assassin’s Creed Rogue Video Leaks Forces Ubisoft To React
Well it appears Ubisoft just couldn’t let this linger anymore and released the official Assassin’s Creed: Rogue trailer through their YouTube this afternoon. They also released an offical press statement as well.
In this upcoming game players will be controlling an Assassin turned Templar named Shay Patrick. The game will be using the same naval mechanics previously used in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and will be taking place in cold waters of the Northern Atlantic Ocean. The game will also visit some other place such as Appalachian River Valley and New York. The game will be taking place during the Seven Years War (1754–63) and will be further filling that gaps that took place between the 3rd and 4th Assassin’s Creed games. The game will feature new weapons both at land and sea. It is also been said that Shay Patrick will have some tie to the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity game that will also be coming out this year as well but so far that link is unclear. The game will be coming from the Ubisoft Studio known as Sofia and had help from tons of their other studios including Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios.
Ubisoft Sofia’s Martin Capel, who is the games director, had this to say about the game “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.” He also added “Assassin’s Creed Rogue completes the North American saga started with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and gives previous generation console owners an exclusive opportunity to experience fan-requested features, such as playing as a Templar.”
So this holiday season we get two big Assassin’s Creed titles. Thanks Ubisoft!

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Early today video footage of Assassin’s Creed Rogue began appearing in multiple place on the internet and tons of grabs by Access the Animus. Last week a retail site had briefly posted a pre-order link to a title with this name in Europe so this isn’t the first time the title has been heard. This is a game that has not been offically announced by Ubisoft but is suspected to the game known as codename “Comet”. This appears to be a last gen title for the PS3 and Xbox 360 so far and seems to be somewhat akin to Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag in that it will have both land and ship based combat. It is expected that Ubisoft will do an unveil at Gamescom next week.
The few detail that the video seemed to reveal were that the main protagonist will be an Templar. There will be ships. The backdrop of the game looks like it is somewhere sub-Arctic. There is a mission title Fort De Sable. There will be a DLC pack called Ultimate Hunter. The game will come out November 11, 2014. We will keep you updated as we learn more.
