Rumor: Assassin’s Creed IV Subtitled “Black Flag,” Features Pirates

Ubisoft made it very clear not too long ago that they are planning to launch another entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise later this year. Until now, however, when and where it would be set remained a mystery.

According to a leaked poster, courtesy of Kotaku, the next installment in the series will be called Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and feature a pirate theme. Check out the image below to see it for yourself.

The poster is allegedly supposed to appear in game stores starting next Monday, March 4th. As convincing as this image is, however, keep in mind that Ubisoft has not yet provided an official announcement, so we'll have to treat this as merely rumor for the time being.

Be sure to keep it locked to GameRevolution in the weeks and months ahead for future updates on what's next for Assassin's Creed. In the meantime, sound off in the comments below with your thoughts on a pirate-themed take on the franchise.
