Or neither, of course.

Recent rumours have suggested that the recently leaked title of Black Flags, linked with the Assassin’s Creed franchise, can be either the fourth Assassin’s Creed title or a DLC for the third one.

Two sources on Reddit have confirmed each of the rumours.

The first source says: “I was on a flight where the lady in the row in front of me was working on a powerpoint presentation on marketing strategies of several gaming titles. And one that stood out the most was AC4: Black Flags, aimed for release 2013 Holiday season according to her slide. It already had a cool looking logo for it.

“Unfortunately I didn’t take any photo, just wanted to share it with all the AC fans, and give those who are trying to figure out the next story line a little hint.”

The second source on Reddit, however, says that it’s a DLC for Assassin’s Creed 3 that sees you play as the admiral of a fleet while you try to bring Connor down. “Whilst sitting in a San Francisco Cafe, I happened to overhear two advertising designers discussing a new piece of ACIII DLC, titled Black Flag, that will focus more deeply on naval combat,” says the second source. “According to them, the tagline stands as “Survival is the Only Thing Worth Dying For,” and the commercial being pitched involves an Admiral of the British Royal Navy attempting to arrest Connor Kenway on the high seas, whilst a Johnny Cash song sets the tone.

“The DLC is apparently nearly six months out and still in early development, but seems to be a definite project that Ubisoft is working on.”

    I do like the sounds of this yes, but i must say i very much liked the idea put forward in AC3 about trying to go further back in time, i think the way the 3rd instalment was set up both gameplay and the over all feel was by far the best so far, i felt the actual physical confrontations felt real and put the user more in control. I am desperate for a 4th game or an downloadable stroyline add on as i would hate for the gameplay to be changed to much. If i were to be real picky i would say the homestead (missions) should of gone abit further allowing the user to have his/her personal touch on the whole thing, actually being able to chose more buildings to be built to they own taste. i do though hope for more AC to come 😀

  • I think the flags are definitely real and do represent something, but I don’t personally believe it is for any AC3 DLC, as there were said to only be ‘5 pieces of dlc’ and two have already been released, not to mention Ubisoft stated several times that the final remaining three peices are all part of the ‘3 piece dlc’ about the alternated ‘Tyranny of King Washington. Also I don’t understand why you would be someone else trying to take down the game’s main protagonist… but in the note that while yes it could potentially be for AC4… it won’t be released in 2013, as Ubisoft have recently released that AC4 will be arriving in 2014, and probably near the end of it.
