Ubisoft has finally officially revealed Assassin's Creed Rogue, the worst kept secret in video games. Rumours surrounding the game's plot, setting and mechanics have been circulating for weeks, and now they've almost all been confirmed.
Set in the mid 18th century, Rogue has you playing as Templar Shay Patrick Cormac, and will take players to "the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley and New York". Sadly not on PC, however. That's if the announcement trailers and press statements are anything to go by.
While Ubisoft haven't explicitly confirmed this, they've as good as done so by omitting mention of a PC version from the official launch trailer and an accompanying.
That means only one of the two Assassin's Creed games set for later this year will make it to PC. We'll be able to hop about revolutionary Paris in Unity, but not freeze our nuts off in the North Atlantic in Rogue. Fair trade?
Of course, as this year's Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD proved, this doesn't mean Rogue will never make it to the chosen platform of the glorious master race. It's just we might have to wait a little while longer.
Assassin's Creed Rogue confirmed, but won't be a PC title at launch
