Black Flags could be Assassin’s Creed 4 or an AC3 DLC
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.”
