Update: The Switch listing for Assassin's Creed III Remastered has now been removed from the Ubisoft website. Yet another mistake? Or just revealed too soon? Original story below.
Original Article: Joining Spyro Reignited Trilogy on the list of worst-kept secrets on Switch, the recently revealed Assassin's Creed III remaster once again looks well and truly set to arrive on Nintendo's machine. This time, the 'leak' comes from Ubisoft itself.
Just like Spyro, Assassin's Creed III Remastered has been heavily rumoured for Switch for some time but has never officially been announced. The first rumours came from a German retail listing which suggested an 'Assassin's Creed Compilation' was set to arrive on Switch and other consoles and, not long after, multiple retailers listed the remastered game under its proper title as coming to Switch, too.
Despite all of this, a press release sent from Ubisoft just last week finally spilt the beans on the game's official release date, clearly stating that it would arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC. No Switch version was mentioned at all, and while we thought it could be down to Nintendo holding the announcement back for an upcoming Direct, it seemed like a Switch version was potentially out of the question, at least for the time being.
Now, though, as originally spotted by Twitter user @AwesomePlatter, the game is available to view on the Ubisoft Club website. You have to be logged in to view the game, but listed clearly alongside those previously mentioned platforms is 'Switch'. We've grabbed a screenshot for you below.
If Ubisoft's own website has the game listed under Switch, and multiple retailers have a very convincing boxart image of the game along with fixed release dates, it's got to be coming to the console, right? We still haven't received official confirmation that the game is indeed coming to Switch, but it seems incredibly likely now.
Do you think it's only a matter of time before it gets properly revealed? Do you think it is being held back for a Nintendo Direct? Tell us below.
