Website Kotaku has published a report and a promotional image regarding the next Assassin's Creed game, which is to be titled Assassin's Creed: Black Flag and will deal with pirates.

Kotaku says they received a scan of a promotional poster for the game from a tipster. To see the image, head over to Kotaku's original story. According to the report, the poster will be in stores on March 4. The image shows a white-hooded assassin fighting alongside a stereotypical pirate.

(By the way, in case you are NOT PUNK, that's not the game's official logo, just a little fun I had with Pixlr and the iconic Black Flag band logo).
