Last month, a producer at Ubisoft hinted that we might see the publisher's console-only Assassin's Creed title, Assassin's Creed Rogue, on PC at some point in the future. Well, that point in the future is "early 2015", with Ubisoft today announcing that the game will indeed be hitting PC.
With this latest announcement, the PC becomes the only platform that can play both of Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed titles. The main game in the series, Assassin's Creed Unity, is slated for launch on November 11 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Rogue will be hitting last-gen consoles (the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) on this date as well.
While Unity is set during the French revolution, Rogue sends you back to the Atlantic ocean so you can catch up with past Assassin's Creed characters. The game allows you to play as a Templar for the first time, and features many naval action scenes that made Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag so enjoyable.
Ubisoft says that Rogue isn't hitting PC at the same time as consoles "primarily for production reasons". It also might have something to do with Unity's launch, with Ubisoft not wanting to launch two tiles in the same series on the same platform at the same time.
Regardless, if you are a PC gamer, you won't need to dust of your last-gen console to enjoy one of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed games.
