Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Poster Leaked

An image has surfaced for the next major instalment of Assassin’s Creed. There were rumours at the start of the month that the next Assassin’s Creed would not be called Assassin’s Creed 4. This image shows a poster of Assassin’s Creed IV, and it seems to be taking a turn from the last game.

However, the image below, which was found on Kotaku, shows that the title may possibly have the name of Assassins Creed IV Black Flag. According to Kotaku, images of marketing material came to them from an anonymous source. This same source claims the posters will be up in stores from March 4th.The poster itself shows an Assassin character on board a ship with several Pirates.

The name Black Flag, along with the poster tells us that the next Assassin’s Creed game seems to have a Pirate theme. The website, Examiner, says that the main character of this new game is to be Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway from Assassin’s Creed 3. The location of this new game is said to be in the Caribbean, including the Bahamas and Jamaica.

What do you think about this leak? Is a pirate themed Assassin’s Creed the right step for the next game in the series? Do you think the main character really is Haytham Kenway’s father? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
