Rumor: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Uncovered

A pirate's life for me?


Earlier this year, Ubisoft's CEO announced that a new Assassin's Creed game would be coming this year. That was no surprise, though the fact that the game would star a new hero in a new era was something worth noting. Today, Kotaku appears to have uncovered precisely where that game will be set - and what it will be called.

A photo of a poster, set to run in game stores this coming Monday, March 4, was sent to the outlet, indicating the name of the next AC game will be 'Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag'. The poster, illustrated by Todd McFarlane, also clearly showcases a new assassin in a pirate-themed era. This also lines up with multiple rumors from earlier this year, suggesting Ubisoft's time-spanning saga would be moving to the Caribbean.

Here's a look at Kotaku's poster:

    Hopefully, they take out the stupid sync shit. They tryna make a non-linear game linear by telling you how you have to complete a mission instead of letting you do it the way you want. AC2 did it right. And please, no more multiplayer; I never touched it on Revelations or AC3.

    Sick of this franchise, but I do like the Pirates theme they're going with

    I hope its only-next-gen.... not cross-gen.

    I think they have used up all the power they can in PS360 already. Time to take it to the next level on PS4

    If they aren't gonna implement a difficulty setting they need to gone ahead and wrap this series up. The boat mini game bullshit was the worst in number 3.

    AC3 had modern day parts where you had to find power sources, and one near the end where you save your dad. only small parts of the game though, the majority is in the past.

    there are plenty of modern day missions all the games (idk about Assassin's Creed wit Altair cuz I still haven't played it)
    they feel more like miniguns... just Desmond gettin his ass whooped, platforming and creating objects with his mind and using them to platform

    But I can't deny the fact I'm always gon fuck with these games... AC2-Revelations was a great lil story

    AC3 was cool too but I'm glad their movin on to a new character

    The lil indian dude did his thing and his gameplay was innovative with all the runnin through trees and shit.... but I think the character served his purpose in that ONE game and I'm glad their hopefully movin on to a new character in the AC timeline
    I'll fuck with a pirate story as long as the technology and gameplay are progressing

    But this pirate shit better have some real believable relevance to the AC story... I don't want to play a fuckin pirate just because they couldn't come with anything better smh

    But wait a minute.... wouldn't pirates mean they are movin backwards in time? Most famous pirates died before the events of AC3

    they need to either jump to the post Civil War and let us fight the Klan (Templars lol) or jump to World War 2

    Haven't played thru AC3 yet, but pirates were more modern than those events.

    Not as modern as the Somali pirates today, but definitely last two centuries.

    "However thanks to quite a few leaks and reports, we already know that the title will be called Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and that it's going to star Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Assassin's Creed 3 protagonist Connor, who apparently was a famous pirate in the Caribbean. "

    When I was playing AC3 they was flirting with the idea because there was some missions in the Caribbean. And Connor outfit would always change to his blue pirate type of outfit.

    This shaping up to be ubisoft version of COD. I'm already having franchise fatigue, ubisoft need to let it breather. I respect naughty dogs for giving you 3 games and then move on to a new ip

    Haytham Kenway is his name. I wonder if they would mention how old he is ,probably a kid at the time and what about the Templar Reginald Birch who brought Haytham to the templars in the first place.

    Tired of the series. Don't really like the direction the story is taking either. I'll be skipping this.
