After a marketing image for the game was leaked online, Ubisoft has decided to officially confirm that the next installment in the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ franchise will be named ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’. Here are the details.
Ubisoft did not go into any details regarding the game but did confirm the game’s title and released official artwork for the title. Apparently the naval battles in ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ were so popular that Ubisoft decided to run with the idea. It looks like the next game will get a new protagonist sporting rugged, pirate-themed blonde hair under the traditional Assassin’s outfit.
Pirates would make the perfect cover for an Assassin. An announcement/reveal will happen on Monday March 4, 2013 that is when Ubisoft promised to reveal more information on the game. You can expect even more information on the game later on in the year. Most likely the company will reveal more about the game at this year’s E3 2013 event in June.
