Ubisoft is planning on bringing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to next-generation platforms.
That’s according to a brief info snippet on the game’s official website, which has since been removed. However, Gematsu took a quick snapshot before it was taken down.
The official site claims the game is ‘also coming to next-gen systems,’ and listed a release date of October 29. This likely pertains to current-gen systems though, as PS4 (and indeed, Xbox 720) aren’t expected until at least November.
While Ubisoft confirmed earlier this week that ACIV will be coming out this year, it only mentioned the game would release on PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox 360 and Wii U. No mention of new formats was given at the time.
Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag takes place in the early 1700s, and stars Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Connor from ACIII. The sequel will be set in the Caribbean, and takes on a pirate theme. More info is expected on Monday.
