[Update] Well, after weeks of rumors, speculations, and of course the leaked screenshot and advertising material, Ubisoft has finally come clean and has officially confirmed that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is the real deal!
Here's the box art picture that came with the announcement:
Currently, we don’t know anything about the game other than what has already been leaked and the fact it will be released for the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U. However, Ubisoft says it’ll reveal more about the game on Monday March 4, which is the day the posters are supposed to be gracing store displays…funny how that works. ;)
So when the time comes, you better believe we’ll have all of the details fresh from the sea!
What do you think g1s? Is the increased focus on naval combat a good direction to take the series?
Personally, I love the idea. Seriously, challenging stealth-based assassination missions on land and intense naval battles in the Caribbean Sea, the concept alone is enough to make me excited.
Besides, you’re going to be a “Pirate Assassin”! How is that not awesome?
Thanks so very much for the tip Andrej!
[Original Story] Editor’s Note: So, it seems the info we reported on Sunday is correct. Sure there’s no official word from Ubisoft at this point, so this is still technically a rumor but it seems fairly obvious at this the point the next Assassin’s Creed will involve pirates and the Caribbean. Maybe Ubisoft will release some Captain Jack DLC?
We’ll have more on this story as it develops.
Two new pieces of information concerning the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise reportedly have been leaked onto the Internet.
First is a promotional poster, which made its way to Kotaku
. The poster has supposedly been sent to retail stores (to be displayed on March 4), confirming the next game is the previously rumored Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
Here’s the poster:
If that wasn’t enough, The Examiner has found an actual screenshot showing off the main character. The Examiner claims the main protagonist will be Edward Kenway, grandfather of Connor Kenway.
Apparently Edward was a pirate in his early life, sailing between different locations in the Caribbean like Jamaica, Cuba, and the Bahamas, which would again confirm the previous rumors.
So what do you g1s think of this? Do you think this is real?
