Ubisoft Plans To Remake Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

If Ubisoft's summer presentation is anything to go by, the company is fully committed to Assassin's Creed. However, a recent Kotaku story implies that the company's dedication to the series may be even stronger than we initially believed. Ubisoft has just started work on a remake of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

According to Kotaku, the remake is presently in "its earliest stages," which means few information are available and that we won't see it in its final form for a few years. It's been reported that a team from Ubisoft Singapore, a division that has worked on practically all of the core Assassin's Creed games, is substantially involved.

On the verge of a new console generation, Black Flag was released in 2013 for the PS3 and 360, as well as the PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U. The game portrays Edward Kenway, the grandfather of Assassin's Creed III's main character Connor,

As he plunders the Caribbean and accidentally stumbles into the Assassin Brotherhood. It is recognized as one of the best entries in the franchise since it combines the series' trademark stealth gameplay with nautical exploration and battle.
