The Assassin’s Creed: Rogue release date has been confirmed along with a handful of other details in a leaked trailer and a few screens from Access the Animus. While Unity has gotten most of the attention in the last few months, mostly due to Ubisoft barely mentioning their planned Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 outing, Rogue has been making silent progress.
The next game for last-gen consoles will indeed be centered around more naval combat, once again using the critically acclaimed gameplay from Black Flag, as revealed in the planned DLC mission titled “Siege of Fort De Sable.” This is probably an expanded version of the sub-plot from Assassin’s Creed IV where you had to capture all of the forts on the map in order to sail freely about the Caribbean.
Another bit of DLC planned to hit with the Assassin’s Creed: Rogue release date reveals that the main character you will play as is indeed a Templar. This is shown when what we think is an assassin approaches a kneeling kindred, who offers his hand in welcome. Instead the first man pulls out a firearm and aims it at the assassin. The title of the second AC: Rogue DLC is called the “Ultimate Hunter Pack,” which alongside the confirmed title of the game indicates that a member of the Assassin’s Guild has secretly turned rogue and is hunting them down.
This was teased in AC4 when Captain Edward Kenway dressed in the garb of an assassin and seemed to work alongside the Templars using the name of an actual defector. AC3 also teased this idea at the beginning, having you play as Haytham Kenway right up to the point where he reveals which side he’s really on by swearing a new member into the Templar fold.

The Assassin’s Creed: Rogue release date has been revealed as November 11 according to screens leaked. There is no confirmed connection between Rogue and Unity, aside from the name of the DLC fort mission. AC: Rogue appears to take place in the Arctic, though the frozen waters and icebergs would make for some difficult sailing.
More details may be revealed at Gamescom 2014 if Ubisoft doesn’t simply release the game in silence.
