Whilst poster and retailer leaks are hardly uncommon, they do appear to have spoiled Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV reveal a little, forcing the publisher to publicly confirm the game yesterday. They also confirmed the embargo date for recent press events, which is next Monday.
Stay tuned for TheSixthAxis’ take on what the game is all about.
However, the latest leak for the game (assuming it’s not a carefully managed PR build-up, of course) comes from Ubisoft themselves, who had, albeit temporarily, put up some information about the game on their own website. Snapped by GamingEverything, the page (now removed) says that Black Flag is “also coming to next-gen consoles” in addition to those confirmed (including PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U) and a release date: October 29.
Worth noting that unless Ubisoft send out another statement today confirming this new info the above data could just be placeholder, but it’s unlikely. Black Flag looks set to feature pirates, and comes just a year after the last game, Assassin’s Creed III.
We’ll have all you need to know about the game, or, at least, everything we’ve been told, on Monday. Unless all that leaks out too.
