Ubisoft might be announcing and releasing a new Assassin’s Creed game for last-generation consoles alongside new-generation game Assassin’s Creed Unity, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot teased during an investors call for the release of its fiscal report for the year ended March 31, 2014.
“Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released this fall on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. We have not disclosed our plan yet for the Xbox 360 and PS3 SKUs,” Guillemot said. “We have made it clear that as a company we expect to continue supporting those consoles for the foreseeable future.”
Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Unity in March as the next major installment in the franchise, and in development for the PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The game is being developed by 10 different Ubisoft subsidiaries, with Ubisoft Montreal as the lead developer.
Citing “a number of sources,” Kotaku reported in March that a second “major” game was in development alongside Unity with the possible title or codename of “Comet,” and will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Ubisoft last published two separate Assassin’s Creed games during the same year with the console release of Assassin’s Creed 3 alongside the PlayStation Vita title Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation in 2012.
