Earlier this month word came out that Ubisoft's next Assassin's Creed title will not be called "Assassin's Creed 4" and was code named "Assassin's Creed: Golden Age." Shortly after, news broke that Ubisoft was holding a "mysterious" Assassin's Creed meeting on February 27th, presumably to show off the next installment in their series, officially titled "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag."
Earlier today marketing material showed up on Kotaku, solidifying the "pirate" theme. Since then, countless amounts of information have been flooded onto the internet. Today I am bringing you the first rumored image and information known of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. The main characters name is Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway from Assassin's Creed 3. Edward is known as a Privateer, Assassin and occasional pirate. The games location is set in the Caribbean on multiple islands including Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas (check out the connection to Assassin's Creed III)
The current game is running on the Xbox 360, but has plans for next generation console's as well. Finally, Darby McDevitt is the lead script writer, with tie in's from previous Assassin's Creed games.
That's all that I have on the latest Assassin's Creed installment, but stay tuned, as this story is breaking. Be sure to subscribe to me here and follow me on twitter @NicholasGigante for the latest Assassin's Creed: Black Flag news!
