A few days ago, Assassin’s Creed Rogue HD mysteriously appeared in some Italian store listings, but has made a sudden appearance on the Korean game ratings board, indicating that an HD remaster might be happening.
Released in 2014, Assassin’s Creed Rogue is somewhat of a forgotten Assassin’s Creed game. As Assassin’s Creed Unity was the first exclusive game in the series for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Ubisoft feared leaving the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 audience behind and produced Assassin’s Creed Rogue exclusively on those systems and PC. Rogue was built upon the strengths of the well-liked Black Flag and doubled down on the naval aspects of that game.
Many fans preferred Rogue to Unity and it was presumed that Ubisoft would port the game to newer systems before long, but it never happened. Thankfully, that seems to be changing with this new rumored release.
As someone that didn’t like Unity at all but had more or less packed up my older systems, I had always been kind of jealous I chose Unity as my Assassin’s Creed game that year. If a remastered version does exist, I am excited to try it.
