Ubisoft Announce Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag For PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360 And PC

Ubisoft have sort of announced Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. they have released boxart for the game but provided no details. they have confirmed the game is coming to PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U but there are rumours that the game will come to next generation consoles, with the PS4 almost certainly to get it. it's also rumoured that the game takes place at least 3 generations before Assassin's Creed III but the main character from III and IV are related. i personally expect some sort of PS Vita game to be announced much like the PS Vita version of Assassin's Creed III was same world but different character and story.

The Full reveal is set for Monday and a possible trailer is either Monday also or Tuesday. however, from the boxart we do know that the PS3 version of the game will have 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay.
