Ubisoft has just announced the fourth major installment of the Assassin’s Creed saga – it’s called the Black Flag. The game is currently in development but will be released on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, once it’s done. Update: Ubisoft has confirmed the game will also launch on the next generation consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720). It also announced the release date – October 29, 2013.
Since the controversial ending of the Assassin’s Creed III, as well as the uninspiring plot and repetitive gameplay, lots of fans considered the game to be the last of the series or at least the last one they would buy. Yet here is Ubisoft announcing Assassin’s Creed IV with pirates.
As it turns out, the previous rumors about a new Assassin’s Creed game turned out to be true. There is still no official info besides the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag name and the four platforms it will be released on.
Ubisoft promises to reveal more info on March 4 at 6PM CET. I highly doubt Ubi has listened to all the negative reviews and fan criticism, but who knows – miracles do happen.
