Take this with a very small amount of salt, I'll leave it at that.

Assassin's Creed 4 will be titled "Assassin's Creed: Black Flag," and will feature pirates.

Unfortunately I didn't take any photo, just wanted to share it with all the AC fans, and give those who are trying to figure out the next story line a little hint.


EDIT: thanks everyone for the nice karma and comments! It feels good to be able to contribute a bit to one of my favourite game ( I still need to play AC3 though..)

Was the ship stuff done by a different AC team? Would make sense if they are getting the "off year" game and putting more ship stuff in it. Personally I never cared about it, but would love to explore the Caribbean.

Awesome news if true, AC3 had a bland main character and a dull era. Will be really glad if they move onto something new instead of pulling a Brotherhood.

Indeed. But I'm convinced Ubisoft knows how to plan and not execute.

The ship sections in AC3 were some of the best parts in the game. If there are more of those, consider me thilled.

The naval aspect of AssCreed 3 is surprisingly robust; all it's missing is the ability travel the high seas (i.e. the ocean as part of the overworld), dock somewhere and explore.

I've scientifically determined that an Age of Sail ship boarding scene is the best possible action sequence, so just make it a lot of that.

Yes, god damn! I wanted co-op since Brotherhood.

Although, the series have actually gotten worse. They have better improve that thing. It's a damn shame they are so good at making the world, but not the story.

The rumour being true would also explain why that's so; it's a core component of a future instalment.

That's either 100% real, or just a super good guess. Just re-use alot of assets from AC3, and you're golden. Just smacks of Ubisoft's laziness.

This is fantastic news if true. Never would have thought pirate shenanigans and naval warfare would work in the AC series, but III certainly showed that they do.

And I almost feel this is what ACIII proper should have been all along. Really mix up the series' formula.
