Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag leaked — it's all about pirates of the Caribbean

Details of the next Assassin's Creed have been spilling out of everywhere in advance of the game's official announcement. According to Kotaku, the next game in the frequently revisited series will be titled Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, will feature boats and pirates and swashbuckling and will be set around the Caribbean in the 18th century.

Kotaku even managed to unveil a world map and promotional poster to accompany the leak, which together reveal the buccaneering themes and Caribbean setting of this upcoming Assassin's Creed.

The protagonist will be the grandfather of Assassin's Creed 3's grump-faced Connor, the presumably British Edward Kenway, jobbing pirate and full-time assassin. The revealed artwork shows Kenway fighting with pistols and knives aboard a ship. The nautical leanings of the sequel would seem to build on the ship combat introduced in Assassin's Creed 3, which, unlike the rest of the Ubisoft Montreal led title, was developed by Ubisoft Singapore.

Haytham, Connor's dad and Kenway's son, was the most charismatic, well-written and voiced character the series has seen. It's a shame he was so misused in Assassin's Creed 3, so hopefully we'll see more of him in Black Flag. Even if he is just a sassy toddler or cutlass-wielding baby.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flags is said to be bound for current and next-gen consoles, but expect it to follow the lead of every other Assassin's Creed game and land on PC shores too.
