GameSpot: "Ubisoft's upcoming action game Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will not feature naval battles, though not for lack of trying."
It won't contain multiplayer naval battles because they probably rushed the release and not investing the resources into it. Online naval warfare would have been freaking awesome.
would have been a nice feature though... sigh...
