Assassin's Creed IV Details To Be Spilled March 5th
The ship has sprung a leak. Was anyone expecting another numbered Assassin’s Creed so soon? You were? This is for you, then.

Gamespot reports that a trailer, since assassinated by Ubisoft, reveals the upcoming Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Its protagonist is one Edward Kenway, who appears to be the same character seen in the original novel spun-off from Assassin’s Creed III, Assassin’s Creed; Forsaken, that contains extracts of Haytham Kenway’s journal (excerpt on right), whom we know as the father of Assassin’s Creed III protagonist Connor. This would mean that the game takes place before the events of Assassin’s Creed III.
Ubisoft will fill the gaming world with more information about this mysterious new game on March 5th. It’ll also be they first numbered title with a sub-title on it. Boxart supplied from Ubisoft to us confirms that the PlayStation 3 version has an additional hour of content, much like Assassin’s Creed III.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has an October 29th release date for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Windows PC and, how exciting, the PlayStation 4.
