The rumors were correct.
Ubisoft has officially announced Assassin's Creed Rogue , the new franchise entry designed specifically for previous-gen consoles. It will launch for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11 (no mention was made of a PC release).
Developed by Ubisoft Sofia in collaboration with other teams in Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest, this new effort is set in the mid-18th century during the Seven Years' War. Players will explore a variety of locations throughout North America, including New York and the Appalachian River Valley. There will also be quite a bit of sailing and naval warfare involved, as you'll spend some time on the North Atlantic seas.
The protagonist is a former Templar named Shay Patrick Cormac, and he has been betrayed by the Brotherhood; hence, the title. This narrative finishes off the story trilogy that began with Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag . This means that apparently, the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity offers a different narrative arc.
So, who's up for two AC titles this year?
