Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot has indicated that it will release an Assassin’s Creed game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year.
The French publisher has already announced Assassin’s Creed Unity for release in fall 2014, though that particular project will be exclusive to PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
However, speaking in the company’s latest financial briefing, Guillemot teased that another game could be in the works for previous-gen machines.
“We have not disclosed our plan yet for the Xbox 360 and PS3 SKUs [of Assassin’s Creed] . However, we have made it clear that as a company we expect to continue supporting both consoles for the foreseeable future.”
Rumors have already cropped up regarding the release of a new game in the historical action-adventure series for PS3 and Xbox 360, though details are sketchy.
The game is supposedly called Assassin’s Creed Comet, with one of two reports claiming it’ll be a direct sequel to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Players will reportedly control Shay, who plans to betray his former captain in the year 1758.
A second report describes Comet as starring Adewale’s grandson Eseosa, who seeks guidance from Connor Kenway, the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed III. The game is allegedly in development at various Ubisoft studios across the globe and headed by Jade Raymond, the producer on the original Assassin's Creed.
That’s about all there is to go on right now, but with E3 just around the corner, hopefully we’ll hear something on Ubisoft’s plans for PS3 and Xbox 360 at the Los Angeles-based expo.
