Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag Remake Is Reportedly Coming

Yo Ho, Yo Ho! A pirate's life for me.


Ubisoft is leaning more and more into the pirate's life, it appears. The company appears to be working on a remake of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.

According to a report from Kotaku, the project is still in early development and will not be ready for a few years. The report also says that a team at Ubisoft Singapore will be heavily involved in ensuring the game is up to modern standards.

Besides that, not much is known about the upcoming remake, and it's unclear if Ubisoft will take inspiration from recent titles such as Assassin's Creed Valhalla to include more RPG elements. It's also worth mentioning that this isn't the only pirate game Ubisoft is making. The studio has been working on Skull and Bones since 2013, but since then, the game has been delayed multiple times and will now be released in the 2024 fiscal year. Despite the multiple delays, Ubisoft announced a closed beta for Skull and Bones that'll run from August 25-28.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag was released in 2013 on multiple platforms, including the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, as well as later on Switch and Google Stadia (RIP). As the name suggests, you play as a pirate turned assassin, and it is a favorite amongst the Assassin's Creed community.
