Ubisoft may be preparing a remake of one of the best installments of Assassin's Creed.
- Kotaku has obtained information from two sources connected with the company that Ubisoft has begun work on a remake of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
- The project is still supposed to be in the early stages of work, so it will probably be many more years before it hits the market.
- Ubisoft Singapore is expected to play a key role in the work. The team has helped with many previous installments in the series, and is currently working on Skull and Bones.
- Similarly pirate-themed Skull and Bones makes it likely that many of the technological solutions developed for that game will be used in the remake of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
Recall that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was released in 2013 for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo WiiU, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game received one major expansion pack in the form of Freedom Cry.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is considered one of the best installments of the series (according to Metacritic, only higher rated parts were AC2 and AC Brotherhood). However, there is also no shortage of voices saying that while the game itself was great, at the same time it turned out to be a poor "Assassin's" game, as it did not follow the paths set by its predecessors.
Many fans had hoped that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag would usher in a new side-scrolling pirate spin-off, but that didn't happen. Instead, Ubisoft set its sights on Skull and Bones, for which we still don't know the release date, despite the fact that the game was announced six years ago
