Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Confirmed

Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is real and is coming to current gen consoles (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Windows PC). This is a full, new entry in the series not a DLC release. It’s unknown whether or not the game will appear on the PS4, Xbox 720, or any other future consoles at this time. Ubisoft is expected to reveal more information this coming Monday. Ubisoft did however, release box art (this is the European version) for the PS3 version at least as seen below. Supposedly the PS3 version will also contain exclusive content. Given this trend in the industry, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the other platforms receive similar exclusives (such as the Wii U getting exclusive GamePad-based features since the other systems do not have a GamePad-like device).
