"Assassin's Creed 4" and the franchise have come a long way since its inception, but one of the game's heads has said this new title will be more mature than what people will think.
According to a report from USAToday on Monday, "Assassin's Creed 4" game director Ashraf Ismail talked about how this game will mature.
"This was a really fantastic time period, and what we want to do is tell the mature version of it.
"[Edward Kenway is] very selfish, but the 'Assassin's Creed' is a selfless ideology. The story is really this inner turmoil he has figuring out who he's really like.
Ismail talked about how this will be the biggest world ever and what gamers will be able to do in "Assassin's Creed IV."
"This is really one of the biggest worlds we've built in 'Assassin's Creed.' Players can explore (and) find treasure. There's going to be a lot of challenge down there.
"Pirates have been romanticized in media or any form of entertainment, because of Treasure Island (and) Disney.
"We see an opening to do a much more mature version, like the HBO version of pirates," Ismail said.
Ubisoft has talked about how the franchise will continue to mature as time goes on, so time and "Assassin's Creed 4" will tell if that comes true. Click here for more daily gaming news.
