Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag confirmed, details coming next week
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is a real thing. Ubisoft confirmed the rumors today by revealing the game's first official art. Details about Black Flag will be shared on Monday, March 4 at 9:00am PT, but we can get a good idea about the game from the artwork released today.
The art seems to fall in line with earlier rumors that Assassin's Creed 4 will be pirate themed, and feature a brand new hero and time period. The new protagonist is rumored to be Edward Kenway, the father of Haytham Kenway from AC3. Edward is "known as a Privateer, Assassin and occasional pirate," and Black Flag will allegedly be set in the Caribbean on multiple islands including Jamaica, Cuba, and the Bahamas.
