Ubisoft has announced a break for the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
However, AC Egypt is scheduled to get launched next year and when it does, it will launch on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on the same day.
Being able to play a full version of the Assassin’s Creed game on a handheld console could be immense fun. But, handhelds like PS Vita always had the tone down version of Liberation or the Chronicles games. The developers at Ubisoft may not be able to release the actual console version on Nintendo Switch because of its low hardware specifications. However, they can choose to get the job done by using a proper port that runs without hiccups.
The rumor generates from a reliable source that adds credibility to it. It was first confirmed by Youtube celebrity OBE1Plays. In the past, Ubisoft has always extended a welcoming hand to Nintendo and their consoles. The Wii U was favored whenever possible as older Assassin’s Creed games launched on all consoles at the same time. Watch Dogs was the only game that took its own sweet time before being available on the Wii U.
It is not only the Youtuber but there is Laura Kate Dale who has his own set of sources that confirm Assassin’s Creed Egypt is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch on launch date. If confirmed by Ubisoft, this could be an amazing start for Nintendo’s brand new platform.
Previously leaked information however confirmed that Switch loses at least 30% or more of its power when undocked from the base station. In a more technical aspect, it denotes that the Egyptian Assassin’s Creed may run at better frame rates when plugged to your television but its performance on the go is questionable. If Nintendo is keen on keeping their audience happy and not deliver lackluster performance on AAA title like this one, they do have to balance it accordingly.
A major share of information available with regards to the Nintendo Switch console is rumor but they do sound convincing. The big reveal is scheduled to take place in January and when they do, it will become much easier to know what kind of games the console could handle easily and the third party developers who partner to bring their games on it. Bethesda will be bringing Skyrim to Switch, a promising start and if it could have more PC, PS4 indie titles and top AAA games, the new platform is sure to be a big hit like the Wii console.
