Ubisoft Announces Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
Ubisoft announced today the latest in the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. Little is know other than it has a new protagonist that looks like a pirate and the setting could be somewhere warm. They are giving official details on Monday, but gave us the box art a little early. Anyone else feeling a little bit of franchise fatigue here? Ever since November 2009 we have had a AC game every year. Now they have all been good, I haven’t had time to play the latest one, but they are not small games. They take place in open worlds, some have taken place in huge single cites, and others take place in multiple cities. I love this series but I think it needs a break until the next generation, or I will retract that statement if they will give me a good Victorian London setting like I have been asking for since AC2. Anyway, we will have more on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag on Monday. I have yet to play 3, but I am curious why the ditched that character so quickly; Altair lasted 2 games, Ezio lasted 3 games, it makes you wonder.
