Unable to contain the secret any longer, Ubisoft has officially confirmed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The publisher sent us packshots for the pirate-themed adventure earlier this morning, confirming the game’s existence on PS3. As with previous entries, playing the title on Sony’s platform will reward you with an additional 60 minutes of gameplay.

Earlier in the week, a slew of rumours hinted at the sea-based sequel's existence. According to the reports, the title will feature a new assassin named Edward Kenway, the father of Haytham from Assassin’s Creed III. We’ll be able to share more details about the upcoming release on 4th March at 17:00PM GMT.
