Ubisoft will launch Assassin's Creed Rogue for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year, a Game Informer cover story revealed today.

Though it will debut alongside Assassin's Creed Unity for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Assassin's Creed Rogue is a completely different game. Featuring a story that takes place during the Seven Years' War, Rogue puts players in control of a former Assassin who has since switched allegiances and joined up with the Templars.

Rogue's gameplay will revisit the naval combat mechanics previously featured in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, and its story spans an 18th-century New York, the Appalachian River Valley, and the North Atlantic Ocean. Rogue's narrative serves to bridge the gap that separates Assassin's Creed 3 and Black Flag.

[Update: Assassin's Creed Rogue will launch in North America on November 11, 2014.]
