Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag details emerge
Main character named Edward Kenway, game set in Caribbean on multiple islands, according to new report.
After a poster for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag leaked yesterday, more rumored information about the game has emerged.
The Examiner reports that the main character in Black Flag is Edward Kenway, the father of Haytham Kenway from last year's Assassin's Creed III. Edward is described as a privateer, assassin, and "occasional" pirate.
The report further claims that Black Flag will be set in the Caribbean. Players will reportedly get to travel to multiple islands, including Jamaica, Cuba, and the Bahamas.
The Examiner also suggests Black Flag is presently running current-generation technology, though Ubisoft has plans to release the game on future platforms.
Darby McDevitt, whose previous credits include a host of Assassin's Creed titles, is said to be Black Flag's lead scriptwriter. His LinkedIn profile states he is currently working on "unannounced stuff."
Writing on Twitter yesterday, McDevitt said, "Is it that time again? [Assassin's Creed] fans getting all apoplectic 'n' stuff. Squirming and squealing. Love it."
Earlier this month, Ubisoft confirmed it was developing a new Assassin's Creed game for release during its fiscal 2014 (April 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014). According to CEO Yves Guillemot, this game will take place in a new setting and star an all-new hero.
