Ubisoft has officially announced Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
Confirmed platforms are Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC, but we wouldn’t be surprised if next-gen versions are also in the works. The PS3 version of the game will offer "60 minutes of exclusive gameplay".
Ubisoft said in a statement: "We confirm that Ubisoft will announce all the details of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on Monday March 4th at 5pm GMT."
Earlier this month Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed that the publisher will release the next Assassin's Creed game during the financial year ending March 31, 2014. He said it will feature a fresh hero and time period, and is being developed by a new team.
And on Tuesday Examiner claimed to have learned that the game’s protagonist will be Edward Kenway, father of Haytham Kenway from Assassin's Creed 3. It also reported that the title will be set in the Caribbean, with players visiting multiple islands including Jamaica, Cuba and the Bahamas.
We've seen the game and will have plenty of coverage for you when the embargo lifts on Monday. In the meantime, check out the box art below and let us know what you expect from Black Flag (besides an ample amount of '70s punk rock, obviously).
