Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
« on: February 26, 2013, 12:56:46 PM »
So far, completely a rumor but Kotaku is reporting that there's been some leaked projected artwork for an possible upcoming Assassin's Creed IV. Reportedly it's being called "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag" - bear in mind that this was work posted on a Powerpoint presentation, so it's not official, but maybe part of a proposal/pitch.

Source: [Kotaku] via [Reddit]

"I was on a flight where the lady in the row in front of me was working on a powerpoint presentation on marketing strategies of several gaming titles," Redditor photoacoustic wrote. "And one that stood out the most was AC4: Black Flags, aimed for release 2013 Holiday season according to her slide. It already had a cool looking logo for it."

Attached to the report was the following image:

Let the grand speculation begin!

[UPDATE]: There's a map on the back of that poster.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Confirmed With Box Art

Box art for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag leaked earlier today, but it's since been confirmed by a Ubisoft Community Developer on Twitter, who also posted an image of the cover art in question, depicting the game's new pirate hero, sporting a cutlass and flintlock pistol.

The tweet also promises the first details on Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on March 4th at 6pm CET/5pm GMT, which is when you'll be able to read all about it right here, in depth and detail. For now though, we have to shut the hell up about it, lest we're made to walk the plank.

Check out the Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag cover art out below, then come back on March 4th for the full lowdown on the whole thing. Spoiler: there will be pirates.

I'm amused Todd McFarlane did the art for it, considering the Assassin's Creed franchise is now drifting into Spawn terrirory.  Upcoming Assassin's Creed games will feature a Samurai assassin and a Western Cowboy assassin....

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Release Date Leaks

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be released on 29th October 2013, on both current and next-gen consoles.

The news comes via a countdown page on Ubisoft’s website, which briefly (and accidentally, by the looks of it) displayed the date, along with a new image.

The image showed a beardy bloke in full-on Jack Sparrow pirate regalia. You can see it below.

The countdown, meanwhile, points to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s world premier trailer. That’s Monday, if you’re counting.

By some sort of logic - this would mean that the next set(PS4 and/or new Xbox) of consoles should be out by then?  ???

The actual pictured website doesn't make it as clear as people and reports seem to think it is.
The release date is in huge letters and says October 29th.
Separately, above that in smaller letters, it says "Also coming to next-gen consoles"

So to me, it's coming to next gen consoles, but that is not necessarily related to the release date for the game.  It's more of a heads up thing.  If the next consoles come out after the game, it can be a launch title then.  If they come out before, it'll still come out October 29th.

It really doesn't show the next consoles being released before it though.  Neither, just one, or both could.
I like my women how I like my coffee: ground up and in the freezer.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50... but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Agreed.  My guess would be the next-gen versions will release a month or 2 later once the new consoles are on the shelf.
