The Assassin's Creed franchise has been a huge hit for developer and publisher Ubisoft. The action series that's mostly an historical adventure with a tiny sci-fi twist has used the Middle Ages in Europe and the American Revolution in the 18th century as setting for its revolving cast of trained assassins.
Today, Ubisoft revealed that the latest game in the series would be called Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag. In a post on its Facebook page, Ubisoft also posted up a promo image, which as you can see above, features yet another member of the Assassin Brotherhood, this time with a flintlock in one hand, and a sword in the other. He appears to be on a 18th century sailing ship, which makes it look like this person is going to be a pirate of some sort.
The game will be coming out on the PC, along with the Xbox 360, Wii U and PS3, and apparently the Playstation port will get some extra content that won't be available for the other ports. No release date was announced. Ubisoft is expected to reveal more about Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag sometime on Monday.
