Rumor: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Direct Sequel In Development For Xbox 360, PS3

If you thought Assassin’s Creed Unity’s leak and announcement was the end of assassin vs. templar speculation for the year, get ready for the bonus round. Rumors have surfaced that another title, planned for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, is in development right now.

The title supposedly stars a templar named Shay and is a direct sequel to Black Flag (complete with nautical adventures). The title is said to take place in 1758 New York and is rumored to be called Assassin’s Creed: Comet.

Halley’s Comet made its appearance in 1759. We’ve reached out to Ubisoft for comment.

Update: Ubisoft has responded to our request for comment. "We do not comment on rumors or speculation," a representative told us via email.

Our Take
Given the consistency (and veracity) of leaks related to Ubisoft games, we suspect this might hold water. It wouldn’t be the first time two Assassin’s Creed games came in the same year, either. In 2012, Ubisoft released AC III and Liberation on the same day.
