We may be getting more Assassin's Creed games on Switch thanks to a listing from retailer The Console Club.
Thanks to a listing from Greek retailer The Console Club, we may be getting Nintendo Switch versions of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered.
Before getting taken down, Reddit user LukarWuff grabbed a screenshot of a bundle including both games. Additionally, games industry analyst Daniel Ahmad confirmed the rumor saying it’s real. The listing also shows a release date of December 6.
With a Nintendo Direct scheduled for tomorrow, it’s possible these ports will get officially announced. During the 40 minute Direct, we should expect to get more news on games such as Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Pokemon Sword and Shield. With over 40 minutes, it’s likely we’ll get more third-party announcements like the Assassin’s Creed games coming to the Switch.
These Assassin’s Creed games aren’t the first to release on Switch. Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered released on the platform back in May and it also included Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, which was originally a PlayStation Vita title. Additionally, a cloud version of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launched on the Switch in Japan back in October 2017.
Assassin’s Creed Black Flag launched in 2013 around the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One’s launch and has players living life on the high seas. As for Assassin’s Creed Rogue, it released in 2014 and had players explore 18th century America. With these and Assassin’s Creed III, hopefully we’ll get Switch versions of Odyssey or Origins in the future but we’ll see.
The latest Nintendo Direct will commence on September 4 at 3:00 PM PST and 6:00 PM EST. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on everything from the Direct and about the Assassin’s Creed ports coming to the Switch.
