It appears the next Assassin’s Creed game may be a swashbuckling adventure with pirates. The newest reports show that the game may be called Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Today, Kotaku appears to have uncovered precisely where that game will be set and what it will be called.
A photo of a poster has been leaked. This poster is set to run in game stores this coming Monday, March 4. The poster, illustrated by Todd McFarlane, clearly showcases a new assassin in a pirate-themed era. This also lines up with the rumors from earlier this year, suggesting Ubisoft’s time-spanning saga would be moving to the Caribbean.
If Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is indeed real and takes place on the high seas, it will not be a first for the series. Last year’s Assassin’s Creed III featured various naval missions where players battled enemy ships.
