"Avast, me hearties"

The recently announced Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will raise its sails on 29th October, according to a page on Ubisoft’s website. Technical wizards DarkZero discovered the date by, er, adding an extra letter to the URL of the publisher’s countdown website. Sadly, the page has since been patched up, so you’ll have to make do with the screen grab embedded to the right.

In addition to the date, the site also notes that the title is “coming to next-gen consoles”, which will presumably include the PlayStation 4. The sequel will supposedly take place in the Caribbean, where it will apparently feature a new protagonist named Edward Kenway. Check back on 4th March at 17:00PM GMT for official details.
