There has been much talk and speculation about the forthcoming title from the Assassin’s Creed franchise. I have to admit, I wasn’t very excited since I just didn’t like Connor from the 3rd installation of the series; however, I really did love Haytham Kenway. Rumors were swirling that the protagonist of the next game is actually Edward Kenway, Haytham’s father. I am uncertain if this has been confirmed by Ubisoft, but being that the game does take place before the Haytham/Connor story - it can be possible and quite welcome because I’m much more interested in Haytham’s story arc than say.. Connor or Desmond. Which also leaves a lot of fans wondering - who will be in the Animus after what happened at the end of Assassin’s Creed III? I’m thinking it could be like Liberation, Revelations, and Brotherhood in which there is no Animus interaction. Perhaps Desmond Mile’s father is in the Animus and he is in fact a descendent of Edward Kenway? Time will tell.
Did I mention that the title of this game could be better? Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag reminds me of some mediocre punk band from the 70s:
I’m wondering if Ubisoft was aware of this when picking that terrible title. Or maybe this band is so obscure these days that I’m the only person that would actually think of this.
Assassin’s Creed III was record breaking because it was the most pre-ordered Ubisoft game ever. Let Assassin’s Creed IV be another record breaker by being the first glitch and bug-free game in the series.
It seems the video is disappearing as quickly as it was leaked onto the internet. You can watch it here:
This is a direct mp4 link so it should work on most computers unless you’re missing some packages. It reveals the release date as October 29th. This is supposed to be a next-gen system. Will Playstation 4 be released in October?
