According to Gameblog, The next iteration of the Assassin’s Creed series for Xbox360 and PlayStation 3 could bring back some familiar locales and characters but with a twist.
According to what the post says the game could take place in 1758 somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, and will have the players take control of a young Englishman named Shay who betrays his ship captain by the name of Adewale.
This of course would tie the game to Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag as Adewale was a huge part to Kenway on the Jackdaw and of course the key character of Cry Freedom DLC. They continued on to say that it would release in 2014.
With the NeoGAF leaks have so far been on point for the announcements of the games and Ubisoft confirming “Unity” for next gen consoles it is only safe to guess that “Comet” will follow suit.
The article also went on to mention that the name Comet is in correlation to a little teaser given by Ubisoft on Twitter related indices Freedom Cry and refer to the rest of the series. “Look to the Stars!” which in turn was followed by a response to a Vincent Van Gogh quote of going to France.
Also mentioned as to why Comet was the year 1758 was the year that Haley’s Comet made it’s return as predicted by Edmond Halley who discovered the comet and said it would return in 1759 though it appeared months earlier.
Kotaku also claims Comet will take players to 1758 New York, where Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's Adewalé, Assassin's Creed III's Haytham Kenway, and other familiar Assassin's Creed stars play various roles. Comet is, according to GameBlog, a direct sequel to Black Flag.
Ubisoft has yet to comment on whether any of this is true but we will have to wait and see for further news.
On a unrelated note I will be posting again. I have been procrastinating but am forcing myself to get my “groove back”. I hope everyone is ready for more.
