Assassin's Creed: Rogue leaks out as last-gen sequel

How many Assassin's Creed games do we need per year? Following Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD and Assassin's Creed; Unity, Ubisoft reckons that three is the magic number.

Leaked screenshots and trailer confirm that Assassin's Creed: Rogue is headed to PS3 and Xbox 360 as a semi-sequel to Assassin's Creed IV, allowing us to play as a Templar hunting Assassins throughout the icy Antarctic wastes.

Fan site Access The Animus got hold of the now-deleted trailer, but not before posting some screenshots on their Facebook gallery (linked). In them we see a new protagonist exploring a swathe of the Antarctic with a familiar blend of traditional land-based and naval gameplay. Haytham Kenway will apparently make an appearance, which is fine by us, since he's basically the Templar James Bond -- so probably our favourite character in the entire franchise.

Ubisoft will naturally plan to flog some DLC, such as the Ultimate Hunter Pack, which reveals more ship customisation such as weapons, sails and wheels. Steering wheels, that is. We don't expect much in the way of amphibious vehicles, but you never now.

The release date appears to be November 11th, though like everything else in this latest leak, Ubisoft have yet to officially confirm anything. We assume that they'll speedily do so, as we saw with their embarrassing rushed reveal of Assassin's Creed Unity.

Rogue is  designed to give last-gen console owners a new Assassin's Creed game, but is this glut of sequels and offshoots really healthy for the franchise? Can we have too much of a good thing, or are you excited about the opportunity to ply your deadly trade without buying new hardware? Let us know what you make of it in the comments!

Don't forget they also brought out the phone/tablet game "Assassins Creed Pirates" at some point in the last year, too.

(As with all of the AC games, it's actually not a bad game. Damn but Ubi know how to milk a franchise, though!
Currently £0.10 on android and £2.99 on ios if you want to give it a whirl. After an hour or two you're faced with either grinding an awful lot or paying for additional gold, naturally. It's a phone/tablet game after all. But definitely worth a look for ten pence.)

Can I buy this from Game, cos I've got about £6 worth of credit?

@Late: Oh yes, true. Still, I don't mind milking if the milk still tastes good, I guess.

@snotters: Erm, sadly no. This is a newly-leaked piece of software that hasn't been released yet, or even officially confirmed.

£6 is also a little optimistic, I'm afraid - it will likely release at around £40-£50 retail.

I thought you said Assassins Creed Pilates there.

I was expecting a weird Kinect fitness crossover.
