Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be a launch title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The news comes following a chinwag with game director Ashraf Ismail at ElderGeek, who confirmed that the historical action-adventure sequel “will release when the [next-gen] consoles are available.

“We are a launch title for those platforms,” he said. “Honestly, we want to push the game as fast out the door because we want people to pick up and play with it. We’re very proud of this game.”

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag takes place in the early 1700s and sees Edward Kenway – grandfather of ACIII’s Connor – plundering his way through the Caribbean alongside the legendary Blackbeard and his band of pirates.
