Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Rogue could be headed for Nintendo Switch soon.
A listing on Greek retail website The Console Club listed a bundle containing the two games for €38.90. The listing has since been removed. That hasn’t stopped industry analyst Daniel Ahmad from posting on ResetEra, claiming that the news is “real”. Ahmad is reliable, and since Assassin’s Creed III Remastered launched for Switch earlier this year, releasing Black Flag and Rogue for the console makes sense.
Coincidentally (or not so much), Nintendo is holding a Direct presentation tomorrow. it could be that The Console Club leaked the Assassin’s Creed news ahead of this presentation by accident. The presentation is focusing on games to be launched in 2019. With this in mind, expect Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Rogue to launch for Switch before Christmas. Whether the DLC for Black Flag will be included is unclear as yet.
We don’t know if either of the two games will launch with any improvements or modifications (aside from being able to play them on the go, of course). Assassin’s Creed III Remastered added a number of Switch-exclusive functions including touch screen menus, Joy-Con motion control, a Switch-specific UI, and HD Rumble. It’s likely that Black Flag and Rogue will also feature these additions, but we’re not sure yet.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag launched in 2013 for PlayStation 3 and 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The game casts you in the role of Edward Kenway, a pirate who inadvertently stumbles on the centuries-old conflict between Assassins and Templars. Rogue was released a year later and follows former Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Cormac as he hunts down his former brothers. A remastered version of Rogue launched back in 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One.
