Ubisoft Confirms ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ With A Dread Pirate

A lot of people absolutely loved the nautical segments of “Assassin’s Creed 3,” running down ships in the Caribbean, dominating the high seas with their slow-turning boats.

You couldn’t necessarily count me among them, but that’s the well Ubisoft is drawing from in the next installment of the series, “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”

The promotional image the publisher sent over this morning didn’t include any additional details about the game (but we understand some people have seen it at this point and impressions should be trickling in soon). Speculation has run rampant about where the franchise would go next (with the series’ Creative Director Alex Hutchinson soundly shutting down locations like ancient Japan or Egypt). So pirates, it is, eh?

Okay, I can get behind pirates.

Anyway, you can see the full promo image after the jump. Hold tight for more news as it develops.
