Go ahead. Get all those Henry Rollins and Greg Ginn jokes out of your system.
Ubisoft has confirmed that the next Assassin’s Creed game, expected later this year, will be called Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Sadly it doesn’t seem to be about the early days of hardcore punk. Based on this image Black Flag clearly involves boats, and flags, and bearded men in hats. Maybe they’re pirates? Perhaps it’s connected to the Caribbean missions of last year’s Assassin’s Creed III. Perhaps it’s a bit of cross-marketing with my favorite fast food restaurant, Long John Silver’s. Expect more information next week, after the embargo expires and the Paste freelancer who attended this week’s press event reveals what he knows about the franchise’s next target.
