The final mainline Assassin’s Creed game to hit last-generation consoles may soon arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, if recent retail listings are correct.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue HD has been listed on the websites of three separate Italian retailers, all of which have slated a release for around March 2018 at a budget price. Despite the listings, Ubisoft has not officially confirmed the existence of any such project.
Nevertheless, if the dates provided by the retailers are accurate, an announcement should be forthcoming in the very near future, as a previous remaster within the series, Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD, was revealed four months before its eventual release.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue originally came out in 2014 alongside the series’s first current-generation effort, Unity. Acting as a sequel to Black Flag, the game was widely criticised for being too similar to its predecessor, while simultaneously being praised for its high-quality storytelling and role reversal in having the main character as a Templar. As a whole, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue has one of the poorest Metacritic averages of the main series, and was the first since Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood to do away with the multiplayer complement, which has since become the standard with Syndicate and this year’s Origins.
