Rumor: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will involve pirates
This just in. New info regarding AC IV: Black Flag has emerged. Apparently, according to Examiner.com, the assassin in Kotaku’s poster is Edward Kenway, father of AC III’s Haytham Kenway, who is described as being “a privateer, assassin and occasional pirate.” Examiner also provided the photo below, saying it is of Black Flag running on the Xbox 360.
Additionally, Eurogamer claimed that the leaked poster featured a detailed map of the Caribbean on its reverse side, showing off locations that Kenway will visit. These locations, marked with a new ‘skull-and-Assassin's Creed’ symbol, include Havana, Cuba; Kingston, Jamaica; and the southern edge of Florida.
If all of this is confusing you, then look to the original article below for clarification.
Earlier this month, Ubisoft confirmed the coming of a new Assassin’s Creed game before April 2014, one featuring a new hero in a new setting. What that setting could be though, was anybody’s guess. If Kotaku is to be believed, the next entry in the series could be living the pirate's life.
Citing a tipster, and a poster sent by said tipster, Kotaku reports that the next AC game will go by the name ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’. The poster, said to be appearing in game stores starting Monday, March 4, shows off an unknown assassin (who, we assume, is the new protagonist) surrounded by a pirate ship filled with pirates, complete with a Jolly Roger in the background.
Here’s a photo of the poster…
At the moment, there is no sure way to tell if the poster, or the claim of a pirate-themed AC title, is legit. What do you think? Does it seem like a natural direction for the series to take, or are you doubtful of AC IV: Black Flag?
