Rumor: Assassin’s Creed 4 To Feature Pirates?
Ubisoft has already confirmed a new Assassin’s Creed title slated for an April 2014 release, but little information was given as to who the new hero and time period would be. There is a lot of speculation surrounding the announcement, but according to a post on Reddit by a user who allegedly oversaw a Power Point presentation on a flight, the next game in the franchise will be Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flags.
“I was on a flight where the lady in the row in front of me was working on a powerpoint presentation on marketing strategies of several gaming titles,” claims the post on Reddit. “And one that stood out the most was AC4: Black Flags, aimed for release 2013 Holiday season according to her slide. It already had a cool looking logo for it. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photo, just wanted to share it with all the AC fans, and give those who are trying to figure out the next story line a little hint.”
However, a second post on Reddit seemed to contradict this claim:
“Whilst sitting in a San Francisco Cafe, I happened to overhear two advertising designers discussing a new piece of ACIII DLC, titled Black Flag, that will focus more deeply on naval combat,” read the post. “According to them, the tagline stands as ‘Survival is the Only Thing Worth Dying For,’ and the commercial being pitched involves an Admiral of the British Royal Navy attempting to arrest Connor Kenway on the high seas, whilst a Johnny Cash song sets the tone. The DLC is apparently nearly six months out and still in early development, but seems to be a definite project that Ubisoft is working on.”
Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot stated that the next Assassin’s Creed game is being worked on by a new studio, however the name was not revealed. This is the only real confirmed piece of information surrounding the next franchise title.
