In the past months, up until now, all that we hear about is Assassin?s Creed: Unity, which is for the next-gen consoles. Yes. All the updates, trailers and gameplay videos for that game is a good sign that we?re in for a treat for the next-gen entry of the series, but some people aren?t ready to make the leap into the next-gen just yet. So does that mean Ubisoft is leaving them out? Not really. There?s Assassin?s Creed: Comet to look out for, but so far, we haven?t heard much about it, except recently.
Ubisoft?s CEO revealed in a recent investor call yesterday about the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Assassin?s Creed that is soon to come out. He didn?t specifically mention, which game it is, but most probably, he was referring to the ?Comet?.
?We haven?t forgotten about our loyal Assassin?s Creed fans on those systems. Assassin?s Creed has a ton of fans that don?t have a next-gen system so we?ll do our best to take care of them. As soon as we have something to talk about, we will. The idea that there are still millions of people playing on current gen is not lost on us.?
While it is being referred to as ?Comet?, it is not yet officially revealed or announced what the new Assassin?s Creed will be called. They have also stated that they will give out more information about the upcoming game ?soon?, but we?re not sure how ?soon? that is and how the rest of the information are accurate.
It is said that Assassin?s Creed: Comet will continue to use the nautical motif that the previous one, Assassin?s Creed IV: Black Flag has. You will be able to sail the Atlantic Ocean and even reach New York.
The game will take place in the year 1758 and like the Assassin?s Creed 3, you will get to play as a Templar again with the name of Shay. These are just a few info about how Comet would play out, if the rumors are true.
Not much detail has been announced yet, but there?s a potential problem with both Assassin?s Creed Unity and this one as they are both going to be console exclusives. It would seem like you need to purchase or have both to play each of them.
