Ubisoft may be planning to release a new Assassin’s Creed game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 alongside Assassin’s Creed: Unity, according to a statement made by Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot during a recent investors call.
“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.”
Back in March, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed: Unity would be available this fall and would be skipping the last generation of consoles, instead opting to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. According to Guillemot, Unity is being developed by 10 different Ubisoft subsidiaries, with Ubisoft Montreal acting as lead developer.
This statement matches up with a report from Kotaku claiming that a second “major” Assassin’s Creed game was in development alongside Unity for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and was being developed under the codename “Comet.” According to the report, the game will star a Templar called Shay and be set in 1758.
