Ubisoft plans to release a remake of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag


Kotaku has revealed that Ubisoft is planning a remake of the pirate action movie Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which many players consider to be one of the series’ most memorable installments. Two sources familiar with the development plans said the project is still in its early stages and will not be released in the next few years.

The 2013 remake of the game is believed to be being developed by Ubisoft Singapore, one of the studios that led the development of ocean rendering technology in the Assassin’s Creed series. So far, nothing is known about the scale of the future project and what will change in it compared to the original.

Ubisoft representatives declined to comment.

As we remember, the pirate thriller Skull and Bones, announced back in 2017, is now in production hell. Previously, it was said that the idea for the game grew out of Black Flag, but the project has repeatedly changed and suffered from internal politics, confusion and bureaucracy within Ubisoft Singapore and Ubisoft.

At the same time, according to sources, the Skull and Bones developers were discussing within the team the possibility of returning the game back to an emphasis on cooperative exploration and melee combat, that is, to something more similar to Black Flag.
