By March 2014, a game titled or code-named "Comet", was revealed to be in development, for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. By the end of the month, additional reports indicated that "Comet" would be set around 1758 in New York, as well as feature sailing on the Atlantic Ocean. The game would be a direct sequel to Black Flag, and would feature a Templar named Shay as the main protagonist. Haytham Kenway from III and Adewalé from Black Flag would also make appearances. On August 5, Ubisoft officially announced the game as Assassin's Creed Rogue. The game features the Templar Shay Patrick Cormac, a first for the series, and is set during the Seven Years' War across various locations in North America. It is meant to "fill the gaps" of the story between III and Black Flag and has "a crucial link to the Kenway saga", as well as connecting to Unity. It will be released in North America on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11, 2014 and in Europe and Australasia on November 13, 2014. It will release on Windows in early 2015.
