March 4th 2013.
The date that is the official reveal of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, or is it Assassin’s Creed VI? Not including side titles such as Liberation, naturally. Now do not get me wrong I do love the franchise that Ubisoft has created, however with that love comes the need to be teased. I have not even had the chance to finish the three part Washinton DLC for Assassin’s Creed 3 and I am seeing the silhouette of another Ubisoft ship with a Black Flag atop her mast.
I have seen the trailer, as I am sure many of you have. I am excited, I am thrilled and yes my hidden blade popped out….twice. I mean did you see the Assassin dual-wielding those swords and guns? That is as spoilertastic as I am going to get, for fear of being a victim of the Brotherhood.
Ubisoft, please, do not make this Black Flag into a Red Flag for the series. With next generation consoles around the corner we can surely wait 18 months between releases.
