Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's release date, next-gen availability leaked
Ubisoft just can’t seem to keep a lid on the next Assassin’s Creed. After being forced to confirm the existence of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag following one too many leaks, the publisher has inadvertently revealed the game’s release date: October 29.
The discovery was made by DarkZero, who found that adding a “v” to the URL for the newly-opened AC IV teaser site led to another page offering users the chance to view the game’s world premiere trailer, with a telling bit of text reading “also coming to next-gen consoles October 29th.” Ubisoft has since removed the page, but you can get a look at it via the image below.
It’s possible that October 29 may just be a placeholder date, but considering previous reports of Ubisoft turning Assassin’s Creed into an annualized franchise (and AC III’s release last October), it’s not hard to guess that fans will at the very least be setting sail around that date.
So far, AC IV: Black Flag has been confirmed for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC, but given the leak above, we’ll most likely be seeing it on the PlayStation 4 and the next Xbox at that time as well. More on that should be revealed on Monday, when Ubisoft will officially announce the game. Assuming there are no more leaks before then.
