Why Ubisoft chose pirates as the theme for 'Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag'?

The time period and setting is such a crucial aspect of any Assassin's Creed game, and with Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, this setting is no different.

But why go with the pirate theme now? Why did Ubisoft decide to take the franchise in this direction when they just introduced the American Revolution a year ago? The answer is relatively simple.

In an exclusive interview with Examiner, Jean Guesdon, who is the creative director of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, revealed why the pirate setting is justified for Assassin's Creed 4. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Ubisoft, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Because they had to find a cool setting after the goddamn boring American Revolution.

I enjoyed it a great deal as many others did. I think sales of AC3 are all the facts people need. Could of been better tho but not for the reasons most think.

Still hoping for a Japanese/Chinese based one. Everything about Asia just screams assassins for god sake haha.

A samurai or ninja storyline set in Asia would be nice

You really want to get into a console vs pc discussion? I could just point out all the weak looking "next gen" games that look miles ahead on PC. Lets see AC4,Watchdogs,Titanfall,BF4,Co D, and everything else coming out. I guess they all look better on PC than your weak consoles since they'll be pirated more than bought. Crawl back into your hole troll and get a few more bubbles before you step up. Wow just looked and you have 3200 comments yet you only have 2 bubbles sounds like NOONE takes you seriously at all.

Still waiting on the Victorian London Assassins Creed... until then, I doubt I'll be getting excited about any of the games.

Presumably not because they have excellent taste in music.

Because the naval battles were the freshest and coolest part of AC3, the rest was boring. and because there isnt many pirate games so why not
ginsunuva  +   706d ago
Because they learned to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
