Earlier this month we reported that Ubisoft unveiled their next Assassin’s Creed title for current-gen consoles, entitled Assassin’s Creed Unity. No announcement was made for Wii U, leading many to believe that the Assassin’s Creed series would be skipping the Wii U this year. Now a French magazine is reporting that the second Assassin’s Creed game for last-gen consoles is entitled Assassin’s Creed Comet and will be released for the PS3 and the Xbox 360. The magazine did not state whether there would be a Wii U version of this game.
According to the magazine, this new game takes place in 1758, putting it after Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, but before Assassin’s Creed III.
“Comet will take place in and around 1758; that it will star a sailor named Shay who betrays the captain of his ship; and that it’s set on the Atlantic Ocean. Comet will continue the nautical theme established in last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”
Other details unveiled by the publication include the fact that Shay is a member of the Templars, and the nautical-themed aspects of the previous game will move from the Caribbean, up the Atlantic coast to New York.
We also hear that Comet will let you go to New York and do a great deal of sailing along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. One source describes the game as a cross between Assassin’s Creed III and the Freedom Cry DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV. Sources also say that Haytham Kenway and Adewalé will make appearances, among other returning AC characters.
What do you think of these developments? Will Ubisoft bring Assassin’s Creed Comet to Wii U?
