Are we about to see the next Assassin’s Creed title? Kotaku have obtained a poster promoting Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, with a white hooded figure boarding a pirate ship, suggesting the next theme will be pirate themed. The poster is allegedly going to appear in retail stores on the 4th March. This is not the first time we’ve heard about this title, as earlier in the year a Reddit user had claimed to have seen a ‘ Black Flag’ powerpoint presentation that was in development.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag could be on the cards for Ubisoft and judging by the information being gathered around the internet, we can more or less put two and two together. However, we wouldn’t like to speculate too much, but I have a funny feeling we are going to hear some exclusive news later on today.
The Examiner is also reporting this is the first image of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag along with a few details.
Today I am bringing you the first rumored image and information known of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. The main characters name is Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway from Assassin’s Creed 3. Edward is known as a Privateer, Assassin and occasional pirate. The games location is set in the Caribbean on multiple islands including Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas.
The current game is running on the Xbox 360, but has plans for next generation console’s as well. Finally, Darby McDevitt is the lead script writer, with tie in’s from previous Assassin’s Creed games.
