Leaked Assassin's Creed IV trailer outs game's release date, possible PS4 launch time frame

The world premiere trailer for Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag leaked ahead of its Monday reveal for a brief moment online today. More importantly, the trailer outed not only the release date of the game, but a possible time frame for when the next-generation consoles, like the PlayStation 4, will be out.
The video begins with a voice saying, "There was a time I thought myself the deadliest scourge of these seas. But this man..." What follows is a typical Assassin's Creed trailer filled with the game's protagonist, Captain Edward Kenway, stabbing and slashing. Then a final title slide appears, as you can see below in the screenshot taken by Kotaku.
A late October release date is normal for an Assassin's Creed game. What is interesting is the line below it: "Also coming on next-gen consoles." From the sounds of it, Sony and Microsoft's next-gen consoles will not be released by October 29th, pinning a November date for when the PlayStation 4 will launch.
On the bottom, logos for the platforms that AC IV will be on are displayed. Curiously enough, they do not include a logo for the next Xbox. This could mean Microsoft will not release their next-gen system in 2013, giving Sony a head start on the new generation. Or perhaps that for the time being, publishers aren't allowed to formerly name and acknowledge the next Xbox.
Check back to PSU on Monday morning for the formal reveal of the AC IV trailer and any additional breaking news.

good to see the ps3 logo in there. I almost forgot that some of the earliest ps3 titles were also available for ps2. hopefully they give the ps3 more support than they did the ps2 when this next generation starts.

Wow, just a few days ago I commented on the possibility of the so called leaked Black Flag poster being real. It seems that the rumor mill nowadays is exponentially becoming the truth mill...
