Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag has been confirmed by Ubisoft.
The publisher has released the box art of the game, which shows the new Assassin holding a sword and pistol as he stands over a defeated pirate, and added that full details will be revealed next week.
"We confirm that Ubisoft will announce all the details of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on Monday March 4th at 5pm GMT," read a statement sent to Digital Spy.
Yesterday multiple sources revealed images and first details of the project, which suggest a pirate theme that expands upon the ship-sailing mechanics from Assassin's Creed 3.
It includes two pre-order posters that confirmed a Caribbean location, an early screenshot and news that the game would be revealed in full on March 4.
It was also suggested that the main character was Edward Kenway, a privateer, assassin and pirate, and father of Haytham Kenway from Assassin's Creed 3.
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will reportedly launch on both current and next generation systems this year, including the PlayStation 4.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot recently confirmed that the company is working on a new Assassin's Creed game, saying that the title will feature a fresh protagonist in a new time period.
Guillemot recently told Digital Spy that the publisher would release multiple cross-generation games this year, including Watch Dogs.
The new Assassin's Creed game is supposed to be released during Ubisoft's fiscal year 2014, which ends in April 2014.
Can't say I'm very interested to be honest, 3 didn't tickle my fancy in the slightest.
