Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag Poster Leaked?

assassins_creed_black_flag_leak

A poster that Kotaku has received suggests that the next Assassin’s Creed game will be titled Black Flag. You may remember a Reddit user caught sight of Ubisoft marketing materials on a flight he was on which suggested that the game is titled Black Flag. Ubsoft is holding an Assassin’s Creed presentation tomorrow for press so expect the game to be revealed to the public then.

Update: More information on the game. 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. The current game is running on the Xbox 360, but has plans for next generation consoles as well.

    1. I’ll probably be getting this for PS4 since my Wii U is going to be used for 1st Party games with the occasional 3rd Party game that actually does something cool with the gamepad ZombiU did.

      I might get this for Wii U but from my experience with playing on Assassin’s Creed III on Wii U which lagged like hell, I’ll most likely get it for PS4

      1. i think the same as you….i love the wii u but will probably only get 1st party games on it…i regret thatt i bought ac3 on the wiiu and the ps4 will be so awesome cant wait to play good games on it

      2. My Wii U AC3 ran just perfectly. oO
        Except for the replay feature the ps4 doenst interest me. (And I rather play my games, than bragging about it in the internet.^^ At least not more, than I do in Miiverse. :>)

      3. For some reason the fps drops down to about 20 or so when I enter into a crowded area which made it harder to move about. Maybe I just got a dodgy copy but I’ll probably still get for PS4

      4. I haven’t experienced lag for a second. Now lockups, never ending loading screens and glitches are a different story. ;3

        I still love the hell out of it and have no regrets with the purchase.
        Btw, I bought mine from the eShop. Maybe it’s only the retail version causing the problems or something…

    1. You called my manly name you unmanly shit. Now you shall drown in the manlyness of my manlyness. Die you unmanly virgin who dared to type my manly name with your unmanly virgin fingers on your cheap unmanly keyboard made by unmanly virgins for unmanly virgins.

      Go back to your unmanly Wiiwii U and play Mario with your unmanly virgin friends.

      1. HEY I WAS RIGHT YOUR HERE!!!!! Hey Bill how are you????

        Did you get any help you yet???

        P.S. You need to come out of the closet to we’ll all accept you if you just say your gay it’ll be easier for you :) lol

      2. Nope, just me testing how good you guys are at spotting if someone is impersonating someone. You get F-.

        Things you did wrong:
        – The real Bill have not and will probably never use unmanly and manly so much as I did, that is a failsafe proof of someone impersonating, that they overdo what someone is known to do.
        – The real Bill have a real gravatar and not the Anon one.
        – The real Bill would not make that long of a response to something THAT stupid.

        Thanks for playing.

      3. Indeed, I do not want that repeated which is why I wanted to test you guys before the second storm begins.

  1. A pirate themed Assassins Creed? That sounds like it could be cool after those naval missions in AC3

      1. Imagine an AC game where the majority of the game was Pirate based ? Swinging into other ships would be awesome!

      2. That does sound cool but knowing Ubisoft you will be able to do that like 5 times and spend the rest of the game micromanaging treasure and learning cartography

  2. My faith in this game is 50/50. On one hand, AC3 was so mediocre i dont care about thenAC series anymore. On the other hand, if this is a next gen game, they can do so much more with the tech, that could revitalise the game, and theyre basically taking the best thing from AC3, the naval missions. Also, pirates.

    1. I’m sure they Put AC3 on Wiiu knowing Future games will be scalable onto Wiiu. And it’s 99% it will end up on PS3 and 360 as will many games for a couple of years because devs are money grabbing bastards.

      The hungry installed base of 360 and PS3 can potentialy hold back next gen consoles for the first 2 or 3 years.

      1. @Nintenward.. Excellent point! I’ve been saying the same thing for a few months now. Plus, the CEO of Ubisoft said the same thing also. The newer consoles of Sony/Microsoft will be hurt by their older brothers, because most people, like me, aren’t looking to upgrade right away. Especially with no backwards compatiability. This is why the Wii U is in a great place. It doesn’t have to compete with it’s older brother.

  3. Hey, does anyone know if the Wii U gamepad can watch you?.

    I ask this because I threw away my Kinect for Xbox after hearing and researching that it can watch you and provide info to the government so it is pretty much like having a live video camera and voice recorder being set up in your house to watch you.

    Sounds like a totalitarian type of idea like what you see in movies.

      1. Huh?. What does this have to do with ”conspracies” ??. It’s a known fact that Kinect can do this. Unless you’re saying I’m wrong?.

      2. Well yeah, look at how our gun rights are being infringed upon or how our 4th amendments are being messed with things like the NDAA.

    1. I would love to know the same thing!. Also, ignore that other guy. He likes having his head in the sand ;)

    2. Nope. Gamepad camera only works during a Wii U video chat. I too heard about kinect watching you but its probably bullshit. Kinect 2.0 on the Xbox 720 though…that’s a different story.

      1. Unfortunately, it isn’t bs…search it up bro. If the new xbox has to be always online like all the rumors say then it’ll be worse. It’s some crazy stuff.

      2. Reasearch it man, trust me…I thought it was fake but I researched the stuff and found it out to be truth. But anyways, I’m glad to hear that the Wii U gamepad doesn’t do that. I should probably ask Nintendo themselves though.

    1. But it is not as bad as Mario or Pokémon. Those series are milked to the MAX! When will you idiots realize you wasted thousands buying the same games over and over.

      1. How is mario milked?. The mascot is, sure but every game is different and the release number for each platform is fairly low. You’re not spewing logic there bub.

      2. They aren’t even milked much… Also, who freaking cares if a game is milked anyways. Does it make the world an awful place. NO! It doesn’t… no one said you “have” to buy the games. So stop using “milked” as a bad term. It really doesn’t matter in any way shape or form.

  4. I do like Assassin’s Creed, but I am a bit worried about this news. I mean, the Carribean would have even less buildings and ither objects to climb on than 3, which I found to have far fewer oppotunites for freerunning than 2, Brotherhood or Revalations.

    Plus, while the naval missons were ok in 3, they’re not worth making a very intergral part of the game. The naval missions were the only major sidequests I skipped on in 3, simply because I found them boring and tedious. Maybe I’m missing something about them.

    While I do think this is a good idea for the story, I think it should be part of the AC3 sub-series instead of 4, since it will link very closly with 3’s story with learning how Haytham became a Templar and stuff.

    But we’ll (hopefully) see gameplay tomorrow, so I won’t be too judgemental until then.

      1. Why do I have the feeling everyone who gets AC IV is going to be playing this song while they play the game?

  5. I’ll probably be getting this for PS4 since my Wii U is going to be used for 1st Party games with the occasional 3rd Party game that actually does something cool with the gamepad ZombiU did.

    I might get this for Wii U but from my experience with playing on Assassin’s Creed III on Wii U which lagged like hell, I’ll most likely get it for PS4

    [Update]

    Site derped on me -_-

  6. I’m not sure I like it..
    As Corros said; it’ll be Even fewer buildings in the Caribbean….
    But you’ll never know: maybe an “Assassin’s Creed: Wind Waker” can be made into a good thing :P

  7. I wouldn’t mind if they all talk like Barbossa, Gibbs, Davy Jones or uhmm…Black Beard…

    Or the pirate från The Simpsons xD

  8. Isn’t it too soon for a part IV? Didn’t Assassins Creed III just barely come out on Wii U? OR was it already out for a long time on PS3 and 360?

  9. They can delay the release of the Wii U version by a month, to see what bugs the other consoles have. Then use PC features for the Wii U version. By that time we can afford delaying it, due to the Wii U having a lot of games that shall have gamers pre-occupied :). NintEdward, and other smart gamers what do you say?

  10. I think it’s real, he has a lanyard for something called “Defiance”, and on it is a tag for a new NFL game.
