French publication Gamesblog is reporting that there’s a second Assassin’s Creed game coming this year and it’s for “last-gen” consoles, which means Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The publication and Kotaku hasn’t heard whether this game will be coming to the Wii U. Ubisoft have already announced a new Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed Unity which is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“Comet will take place in and around 1758; that it will star a sailor named Shay who betrays the captain of his ship; and that it’s set on the Atlantic Ocean.Comet, GameBlog says, will continue the nautical theme established in last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”
“This fall’s last-gen Assassin’s Creed will indeed be set in North America and star a protagonist named Shay, who is a member of the Templars, the assassin-hating order that has traditionally served as primary antagonist in the Assassin’s Creed games.”
“We also hear that Comet will let you go to New York and do a great deal of sailing along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. One source describes the game as a cross between Assassin’s Creed III and the Freedom Cry DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV. Sources also say that Haytham Kenway and Adewalé will make appearances, among other returning AC characters.”
