Assassin’s Creed 5 Comet, Unity Update: Official Information Coming ‘Soon’

Official information about the rumored Assassin’s Creed Comet game, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, is going to come out soon.

The game has so far not been confirmed by Ubisoft, which revealed information for the next-gen Assassin’s Creed 5 game earlier this year. That game is called Unity.

But company CEO Yves Guillemot seemed to confirm the existence of the other Assassin’s Creed 5 game in an investor call on Thursday.

“More info on that soon,” he said, reported IGN. “It will come soon.”

Comet will allegedly star a Templar in North America, sailing around the coast.

“Assassin’s Creed Comet will reportedly be set in North America and have you play as a Templar named Shay. Of course, the Templars have traditionally served as the main antagonist group for the entire Assassin’s Creed series, so this would be a major shift in design,” Gamespot said previously.

As the AC series progresses, however, the line between the Templar Order and the Assassin Order has some what blurred. Both Orders have been revealed to be neither good nor evil, but merely holding different views of how humans should interact with the world.

Comet is also said to be a direct sequel to Assassin’s Creed VI: Black Flag.

Unity, meanwhile, is set in Revolutionary France and will be out on October 28, 2014.
