Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag swabbing decks on Wii U, PlayStation 3 / 4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox8

Engadget - The Assassin's Creed video game series -- beyond its trademark murderous historical fiction -- is known for arriving in annual installments. 2013 is no exception, with French publisher Ubisoft recently revealing Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, a pirate-centric next entry in the long-running franchise. Unlike last year's game, which took players through the American Revolution as a half-British / half-Native American named Connor, AC4: Black Flag puts you in his grandfather's swashbuckling boots as Edward Kenway of The Caribbean. Kenway's the captain of a pirate vessel known as "The Jackdaw," which promises a new twist in the AC series: open-world naval combat. While the last series entry teased naval combat, Black Flag is built around that gameplay; AC4 also borrows from recent Ubisoft highlight Far Cry 3, with Kenway battling sharks below water while diving for booty (a takeoff on the hunting found in that game, as well as in the last AC entry). (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Xbox8? Since when was Microsoft's next-gen console called that? Did I miss something?

Rumours are that the symbol next to the Xbox name will look like an 8. It could also be an infinity sign or a loop symbol.

I'm sorry but yearly releases are slowly killing gaming. Look what happened to the old ssx and tony hawk games. They lost their appeal eventually and now we rarely see them. Then games like rock band and guitar hero did the yearly and sometimes more than once a year and those are dead now. Now it's yearly cod and assassins creed. I remember being in awe the first time I saw modern warfare and the first assassins creed. But 5 years later after seeing them every year, I'm sick of the sight of them. It's like, "yay, wow, awesome, another lame ac and cod" .

What? Where did they pull Xbox 8 from? It doesn't even say that in the article.

This makes no sense. Could they please not treat this like Call of Duty.

Seems like a complete waste of studio talent as well for them to be having their teams work on these played out projects like this, especially so soon.

I have no problem with a new one but not literally months after one was just released. I would hate to work there, I would be like can we work on something else please?

The sideways 8 if it is supposed to be a loop then that could mean it is the 720.
