Earlier this year, Ubisoft mentioned that they would be churning out yet another Assassin’s Creed game, albeit not including Desmond. They mentioned that although the Animus played a large (unconnected?) role in the Assassin’s Creed series, it wasn’t necessary to continue the story of the Assassins versus Templar.
A leaked poster, indicating that the next Assassin’s Creed will be called “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag”, is supposedly supposed to launch in store as part of the promo to get the hype going for their new game.
The poster itself shows the Assassin on a ship with what seems to be a bunch of unruly pirates. Rumors have it that the AC franchise is relocating to a Caribbean setting, which will probably see us ship jumping, cannon shooting and commandeering our way to the top of the food chain.
The image is as below, straight from Kotaku.
