First screenshot of 'Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag' surfaces

Earlier this month word came out that Ubisoft's next Assassin's Creed title will not be called "Assassin's Creed 4" and was code named "Assassin's Creed: Golden Age." Shortly after, news broke that Ubisoft was holding a "mysterious" Assassin's Creed meeting on February 27th, presumably to show off the next installment in their series, officially titled "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag."

There were rumors of Assassin's Creed to take place in China or Japan a while back. So whoever disagree prepare to eat your words. Just look at the picture that is evidence enough.

Wingsfan244165d ago

There was no rumor of the game taking place in China or Japan. A fan made art of the concept, nothing more.

And it doesn't look like a samurai at all, lol ruffles coming out of the sleeves, and it's pretty obvious that's not a samurai sword on his belt. And the artwork kinda gives it away as pirate themed. Sorry bro :(

Yep i'm with you. If the words "black flag" wasn't pirate sounding enough, we then have a piece of concept with pirates in it.

SHORYUKEN4165d ago

PockyKing is right it was a fan made art.

But what if.... it taking place in China?

The I say bring it on it will be great!

Second pic looks like they are on a ship. I'm thinking Pirates considering the dudes beard.

They really aren't giving anything away at this point.

E3 I guess..

Minato-Namikaze4165d ago

Asians cant be pirates? lol. But i still need to finish liberation :(

guitarded774165d ago

If "Black Flag" isn't pirate enough for you, petition Ubi to call it ACIV: Peg Leg... of something like that. Now that I think about it, it would be badass to assassinate people with a peg leg. Oh, and I must say... AC is officially played out for me. I just can't keep up anymore. I love the series, but damn... really??? We don't need an annual game. It just wears on the player. Bi-annual would keep it fresh. Although the ship levels from AC III were incredible.

Reverent4165d ago

I agree that it very well may be pirates, but @irepbtown, you're really basing the theory just because of the guys beard? lol.

PS3Freak4165d ago (Edited 4165d ago )

The second image clearly shows a skull and crossbones flag.

There's no "it could be pirates". It's pirates. Unless these images are BS.

ElectricKaibutsu4165d ago

According to the article it is indeed about pirates and will take place in the Carribbean.

starchild4165d ago

They SHOULD do one set in Japan. I think it would be the most interesting setting.

AsimLeonheart4165d ago

Another Assasin's Creed already??? Ubisoft is really milking the franchise.

ABizzel14165d ago


I agree as well, as @mep69 said Black flag sounds like a pirate game, on top of that they wouldn't have spent all that time developing naval battles in Assassin's Creed 4 for nothing. It was a tech demo for a true Pirate based Assassin's Creed.

ZombieNinjaPanda4164d ago


I think Black Flag is more punk than pirate.

gedapeleda4164d ago

Set in the caribbean
Maximum hype, I always wanted one in Caribbean.

ps3_pwns4164d ago

You done goofed. the amount of disagrees you recieved is astronomical!! I dont think you will be able to recover from this fail so easily lol.

Awesome assasins creed 4! wonder if it will be on the ps4!

gamingmaster20134164d ago

Only way this game is gonna be interesting is if the pirates are somali pirates!

Looks like more of the same.

Snake Raiser4165d ago

You mean Assassin's "press counter button to win" Creed?

grailly4165d ago

this has me worried, AC series has a lot of potential, and some of the games in the series are good, but I really disliked 3, it felt like it wasn't polished at all and rushed in some parts. If we already have a poster, I'm worried AC4 will have the same problem.

Eyeco4165d ago

I've said this before, people are quick to jump on the COD hate band waggon with it's annual release, but Assassins Creed ALWAYS gets a free pass

UnholyLight4164d ago

More of what we don't want. We don't want another fucking terrible game like ACIII, we don't want fucking pirates or whatever. We all want an asian setting for the next AC, too bad we won't get it..


yeahokchief4164d ago (Edited 4164d ago )

I stand by what i said a few weeks ago about the AC series.

I will buy one of these when they go into space.

Because by that time it will be so ridiculous that it will be comical.

This pic got me a little excited because it's a bit blurry and it looked for a second like he was wearing a space suit.

Kurt Russell4164d ago

I got as far as Assasins Creed revelations... too burnt out fromt he series to play AC3, let alone ANOTHER sequel.

Umm - Black Flag says Pirates, even the cover, shows a bunch of pirates.

Meh not into pirate themes.. I also could tell that one screen shot looked like a pirate outfit.

-Gespenst-4165d ago (Edited 4165d ago )

No, it looks like Connor. The poster in particular. It's the hair in the screenshot that gives it away for me.

EDIT: Just realised the whole Edward Kenway thing.
