We’ve heard a lot of response requesting a PC version, so we’ll be looking into that very soon.
Deciding not to release Assassin’s Creed Rogue alienated a number of the game’s long-time fans, as the new entry finally gives gamers the ability to play as a Templar, something the studio’s been considering since the original Assassin’s Creed.
We think it’s really powerful, both in gameplay and storyline [and] premise. Shay Patrick Cormac will go through a very emotional journey from being an Assassin to being a fully-fledged Templar, and we want the player to go through a similar journey.
…it’s also not an unprecedented move for Ubisoft to release a game from the franchise onto unexpected platforms: Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation was initially a PS Vita exclusive, before branching out onto PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 earlier this year.
