While Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the long-awaited next installment of the famous franchise, Ubisoft apparently plans to release a remake of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. Kotaku has learned and revealed that the move is part of Ubisoft’s strategy to capitalize on its most popular franchises, including Assassin’s Creed. As Skull and Bones continues to row, we could well see Black Flag return any time soon.
Black Flag: an opus as singular as it is adored by Assassin’s Creed fans
These are two sources close to the file and anonymous who explained to Kotaku that this remake project would only be in its infancy and that it would not be completed for several years. Released in 2013, this avant-garde title has still taken a little bit of old and it would be the teams of Ubisoft Singapore, studio which has been at the forefront of the development of the evolutionary ocean technology of the franchise Assassin’s Creed, which would be heavily involved in the modernization of the game. For the moment, Ubisoft has not commented on the situation.
If we stick to the last installments of the Assassin’s Creed saga, the naval gameplay and the place of the boats have taken a considerable place and it must be said that Ubisoft has managed to offer more than successful experiences on this side- there. It is hoped that the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag remake will benefit from the latest innovations and technical improvements to offer a most impressive remake.
It’s hard not to think of Skull and Bones, the pirate game first announced in 2017. Initially, the game was meant to be an expansion for Black Flag, but it’s spent years continually changing shape and plagued issues of internal politics, confusion and bureaucracy within Ubisoft Singapore and the company as a whole.
Since then, the game has been postponed several times, has remade the news slightly, but to this day still has no release date. Our colleagues from Kotaku have revealed that the management of the Singapore studio currently requires all developers of Skull and Bones to work on site rather than remotely. It also seems like staff are being encouraged to stay late and work overtime to meet closed beta deadlines for a game that’s been planned for release for years.
It would therefore seem that Ubisoft is now preparing 11 Assassin’s Creed games for the next few years, new games and remakes combined.
