Rumor: Assassin's Creed Rogue HD spotted from Italian retailers
Good news for Assassin's Creed players that missed out on one of the series' last PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases. Multiple leaks from Italian retailers have Assassin's Creed Rogue fans speculating that an HD remake is on its way for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Three different Italian sites all list Assassin's Creed Rogue HD for a March 2018 release.
Assassin's Creed Rogue HD is allegedly set for a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launch sometime in March 2018, according to Italian retailers Webster.it, Reluxshop.it, and ePrice. There's some discrepancies when between retailers—Webster.it states March 15, whereas ePrice says Rogue HD goes on sale for March 18—but fans have already started speculating whether a current-gen HD remake is on the way. All three retailers list the game around €30, which would place the game around $35.
It's unclear whether Assassin's Creed Rogue HD is a real game or not, but it seems likely. Unlike Target's supposed Bethesda Game of Thrones leak, which was later debunked as fake by Bethesda, Rogue HD's listing is available on multiple stores with relatively similar release dates and prices. That consistency alone is promising.
For those unfamiliar, Assassin's Creed Rogue serves as a follow-up to Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and sets the stage for both Assassin's Creed 3 in the U.S. and Assassin's Creed Unity in France. The game takes place during the Seven Years' War and follows Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin who seeks revenge on his old Assassin comrades after they betrayed him.
Rogue was previously released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2014, with a PC release in 2015. The game also served as the last Assassin's Creed title for last-gen systems before Ubisoft switched entirely to development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
