French website GameBlog reported a number of details surrounding Comet and its story. While Ubisoft has already released the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity which will be a next-gen only, Comet is going to be for the PS3 and Xbox 360 (no news about Wii U). The game will star a sailor named Shay and will span around 1758 New York per the Kotaku translated article. It should also be noted that in the Kotaku article this is to be a direct spin-off to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
It is said that Assassin’s Creed Comet will also have cameos from Assassin’s Creed III’s Haytham Kenway and Assassin’s Creed IV Adewalé among others. There is also news of an image going around that Assassin’s Creed Comet will also be coming to next-gen but Kotaku’s sources are calling it a fake.
Assassin’s Creed Comet will be available Holiday 2014.
