Assassin's Creed: Rogue is for fans who've not made the jump to next-gen yet
Ubisoft has been defending their decision to release two big Assassin's Creed titles back to back.
Karl von der Luhe, producer on Assassin's Creed: Rogue has explained that the title is primarily for fans of the series that haven't bought a PS4 or an Xbox One yet although he recognizes that there will be those who will play Rogue and the next-gen title Unity.
“There are the hardcore Assassin’s Creed fans that are happy to play two games and there are of course many fans that have not yet made that financial move to go to next-gen,” said von der Luhe. “These are the guys that we’re really catering for – they’re thankful for the fact that they will have a compelling Assassin’s Creed game to play on either their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.”
“The idea of being a Templar has been around for years – ever since AC,” he added on the concept of playing as a Templar. “Locking down the actual idea and story, that was around two years ago. I won’t go into the exact details of when we started and all that, but we’re very confident with the amount of time we’ve had this.”
Assassin's Creed: Rogue will be out on PS3 and Xbox 360 on November the 11th. Assassin's Creed: Unity will hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October the 28th.
