As it currently stands, the monumentally successful Assassin's Creed franchise has only been confirmed for the PlayStation 4, with the co-op outing Unity set to launch later this year. Indeed, Ubisoft marketing executive Tony Key has assured us that the title has been built from the ground up with the super machine in mind. "It's built for next-gen; it can't be done on current-gen," he said. "At least we haven't figured out how and we're not trying to."

However, when asked about the future of the franchise on the older consoles, Key was quick to stress that the developer definitely has plans. "Yeah, there's plenty of current-gen Assassin's Creed fans out there," he continued. "We hope to be able to talk to them about that soon."

There was a rumour sneaking around a few weeks back that the new game would be titled Assassin's Creed: Comet, and would see you tearing up the streets of New York. The leak also mentioned the return of the naval gameplay that has thus far been disappointingly absent from the franchise's next-gen version.
