‘Assassin’s Creed Rogue’ Is Probably Coming To PC

By | 2 years ago 

The Assassin’s Creed games reach a lot of fans on an annual basis, and this won’t change with the series’ newest last-gen entry, Assassin’s Creed Rogue. While the game has only been announced for Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, a PC version is still a hopeful possibility. New details regarding the PC version have been spotted, but until Ubisoft discusses the potential release themselves officially, we only have the rumors to go on. And this appears to be the closest we’ll get to an official confirmation until then.

Initially discovered by NeoGAF users, Assassin’s Creed Rogue for PC has received a listing on the Brazilian Classification Board, alongside its console counterparts. Screenshots of the entry were taken to prove its existence, but you can see it for yourself here; you can even search for it if you start from the search page. The PC version was also listed on Uplay, Ubisoft’s online platform, under the game’s rewards page but since its discovery by another NeoGAF member, the page has been removed.

As said previously, Assassin’s Creed Rogue for PC is expected since prior AC games eventually made their way to PC and Ubisoft continually claims to be making an effort to improve their PC development. Assassin’s Creed Liberation, a game that started on the PS Vita, came to PC earlier this year, and Rogue’s associate producer Karl Von Der Luhe said last month that Ubisoft was “looking into” a PC release.

Ubisoft is a top publisher when it comes to supporting multi-platform release and given the flagship status of the Assassin’s Creed brand and the amount of potential PC players who would eagerly jump into Rogue with the best graphics possible, them neglecting the PC would be incredibly surprising. Even Assassin’s Creed Unity, a game developed for the PS4 and Xbox One, is coming to PC on the same day. That said, we’ll have to wait and see if Rogue’s PC release coincides with the Xbox 360 and PS3 launches, which also happens to be the same as Unity.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue places players in the role of Shay Patrick Cormac, a Templar who was once as Assassin. Rogue brings back the naval combat introduced in Assassin’s Creed III and continued in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and will serve as the missing piece that ties Black Flag and Unity together; perhaps even ACIII as well, due to the reappearance of Haytham Kenway.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue will release on November 11, 2014 for PS3, Xbox 360. Assassin’s Creed Unity releases on the very same day on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
