Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag revealed

Supposed marketing material for next entry in the series suggests it will be a high seas adventure with pirates.


The next Assassin's Creed game may be a swashbuckling adventure with pirates. A tipster has sent Kotaku marketing material for a game called Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

The poster shows a series-familiar hooded assassin wielding a pistol in one hand and a sword in the other. This character is standing on a ship--with a black flag in the background--and is surrounded by a host of pirates.

If Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is indeed real and takes place--at least in part--on the high seas, it will not be a first for the series. Last year's Assassin's Creed III featured various naval missions where players battled enemy ships.

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.
