With the success of the Assassin's Creed series and overall completion of main protagonist Desmond Miles' story arch following last year's ACIII, publisher and developer Ubisoft has wasted no time now, as of today, officially unveiling the next main title in the franchise.
Introducing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag! Players will this time be walking (or sailing?) in the mighty footsteps of what appears to be a 16th century privateer or pirate. While not much else has been revealed of the story, there have been numerous leaks hinting that said pirate may in fact be Connor Kenway's grandfather, Edward Kenway. Conner, as fans will recall, was the main protagonist in ACIII, also going by the name of Ratonhnhaké:ton in his Native American tongue.
No official release date has been confirmed but we're expecting an October or November 2013 release, coinciding with previous title releases.
