Looking through various user comments posted around the internet and in professional reviews, gamers would see that many fans of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag have noted that they would have enjoyed the game more if it was simply a pirate adventure rather than confined within the greater Assassin’s Creed universe. According to a report by IGN on Dec 5, Ubisoft may actually be considering separating the franchises after they are now officially asking players through a new survey as to whether they would have rather simply had a second pirate franchise rather than making Black Flag an Assassin’s Creed title.

Ubisoft was already changing up the formula with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag by removing the long-standing present day protagonist Desmond from the series. Instead, gamers experienced the modern era within Assassin’s Creed IV via new first-person gameplay segments where they took on the role of an Abstergo employee.

Other questions included in the survey asked fans their thoughts of the future of co-op and multiplayer mechanics for the franchise. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is out now on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.
