Pulled Trailer Reveal’s ACIV: Black Flag’s Release Date
Really, though, I feel like I just beat Assassin’s Creed III…Well, I’m guessing I’m going to have to adjust to that sensation about this time every year as Ubisoft elevates their blockbuster series to annual status.
With a full-on reveal of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag scheduled for Monday, practically forever from now, you can always count on the internet to open its presents early. Not completely our fault (this time). The official trailer for Black Flag (accidentally?) made a brief stint when it was leaked onto YouTube. I would link you to it but Ubisoft put up the blinders post haste.
Damage done, however, as we now have a release date pegged as well as the alias of our new assassinating buccaneer. Starring a Mr. Edward Kenway – a “devil dressed as a man” who even has the infamous Blackbeard shivering his goddamn timbers – fans will first get their hands on Black Flag October 29th; likely the new target date for future installments.
What’s more is the fact Assassin’s Creed IV will be the first entry gracing next-gen consoles along with current hardware. If it makes it in time for the PS4’s Fall ship, Black Flag will certainly be one hell of a high profile launch title. Once again, see you on Monday with more details.
