Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Confirmed For Monday Reveal [UPDATE]

Guns, LOTS Of Guns

UPDATE: Ubisoft have confirmed that Assassin's Creed: Black Flag is indeed in development, along with an embargo for the full reveal. "We confirm that Ubisoft will announce all the details of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on Monday March 4th at 5pm GMT," reads the missive. Jonathan attended a Ubisoft-hosted event last night, so the timing might not be entirely coincidental...

Original story: It was only yesterday that speculation over the next instalment of the Assassin's Creed series might feature pirates appeared online, but now the internet has gone into full-on sleuth mode and dug up what could well be the boxart for the next instalment in the franchise. Posted on the official Assassin's Creed forums, the above picture, if yesterday's rumours are to be believed, is of Edward Kenway, father of AC3 character Haytham. If the picture accurately represents the in-game action, we will be welding more guns than a single British Regiment, on top of the usual stabby-stabby action.

Whilst the art style looks right, I think every Assassin's Creed game so far has had the protagonist wearing the iconic peaked hood (with the little triangular bit pointing down between the eyebrows) - and this doesn't.

Could be nothing, but that difference leapt out at me as soon as I saw this pic...

Ubisoft have OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED AC4: Black Flag a few minutes ago - post updated.

So, Monday. 5PM. Stay tuned. ;)

This ones seems like an odd choice to me - each of the previous AC outings has gone for a fairly original historical setting... so why have they suddenly gone Pirates?

I'm not too fussed about any details just yet, but the protagonist looks mean as ****!

As long as it keeps the usual AC gameplay, I'll be well happy, since I loves me some pirates.:D
