Two more Assassin's Creed games are coming to Switch. It's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered that will be releasing on Nintendo's portable console according to the latest listing from Greek retailer.

Earlier this year, Ubisoft released Assassin's Creed III Remastered on Nintendo Switch and since the series is slowly moving towards a bi-annual release schedule it's somewhat expected that the publisher try to fill in the gap with similar ports in the future.

According to the latest listing, which has been spotted on Greek retailer The Console Club's website, Ubisoft are preparing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered for Switch release in the near future. 

The bundle has since been removed from the website but the pricing was set at €38.90 and players also had the option to pre-order the games. Unfortunately, the listing did not reveal any additional details such as the release date.

However, it's possible that Ubisoft plan to release the duo sometime next month as October was usually the month for the release of previous Assassin's Creed games - Origins and Odyssey. Of course, this is just a guess until Ubisoft officially reveal these ports. 

If you're unfamiliar with these games, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag basically laid the foundation for modern Assassin's Creed games. It was the first game to feature large sea battles which have been developed further in Odyssey. Black Flag is one of our favourite games in the series and it comes just behind the near-perfect Odyssey. So a wholehearted recommendation for Switch users.

As for Assassin's Creed Rogue, it's the last game from the series to release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A remastered version was released for the current-gen consoles last year. The game is very similar to Black Flag, in fact, it's so similar that many reviewers criticised it for failing to innovate the series' formula and its similarities to Black Flag. It's probably one of the Assassin's Creed games you never got to play.
