We would all like to see a Black Flag remaster landed. Several clues could already announce the return of the game in the next-gen version.
Black Flag, the fan-favorite episode?
If Assassin’s Creed fans had to choose just one installment from the license, you can be sure Black Flag would be in the discussion. It is very well placed in our ranking of the best games of the license and holds a special place in the hearts of fans Recently, we presented you with an amazing mod made by gamers for the game. It provided an amazing graphical enhancement to Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. It was only an amateur job and that’s why we can only be hyped by a remake or a remaster from Ubisoft.
An official Black Flag remaster already planned?
Ubisoft’s communication has nothing to do with Rockstar’s. The French publisher generally communicates a lot about its productions and this is why everything that follows will have to be taken with a grain of salt. These are just speculations and reactions after various publisher posts We had already highlighted one of the videos from the Assassin’s Creed Central channel as part of the rumor around an Assassin’s Creed game that could be multiplayer and free. Today, in a new video, he highlights several clues that suggest that a Black Flag remaster would be closer than expected.
1- A surprising choice of gif to tease Valhalla’s announcement
On April 10, 2020, Ubisoft decided to tease the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla live announcement using a gif of the good Edward Kenway 19 days later, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was revealed. So why did Ubisoft choose to take this specific scene out of all the Assassin’s Creed episodes? It is perhaps a simple coincidence that corresponds to the communication that Ubisoft wanted to make at the time. However, it could also be a warning to players that things are happening internally around Assassin’s Creed Black Flag.
2 – A new figurine of Edward Kenway
Derivatives are far from rare in video games and the Assassin’s Creed license is no exception. We have lost count of the various products developed since the start of the license and the figurines are generally very successful.
8 years after the game’s release, a brand new Edward Kenway figure has just been released. What to put the chip in the ear as for a possible remaster of Black Flag. Nothing official but this choice of character for the figurine can be seen as a marketing strategy aimed at reviving a little the aura and the craze around the game.
3 – A sequel already announced for Black Flag
Another very interesting point mentioned in the video and which we had already told you about at the time of the announcement, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag will be entitled to a sequel in the form of a webtoon. As for the figurine, the release of this sequel could revive the hype around the game Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and therefore boost sales of a possible remaster After reuniting with Edward in the rest of his adventures, nostalgia is likely to grow among players and it would be the perfect time to release Assassin’s Creed Black Flag remastered.
4 – Black Flag PC down servers
A while ago, Assassin’s Creed Black Flag servers were shut down on PC. We are of course only speculative here, but it is astonishing that 8 years after the game’s release, the servers are having problems. It could therefore be that Ubisoft performs tests on the game internally in order to prepare something. In any case, this is the theory of the Assassin’s Creed Central Youtube channel.
5 – An arrival in the season pass of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla?
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is part of the same model as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey with several seasons passes. It also offers updates very regularly by adding some additional content for the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass, Ubisoft offered us two very interesting DLCs, but another argument was taken into account to put it forward. At the time, Ubisoft offered an Assassin’s Creed III remaster included in the season pass. As part of Season 2 of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ubisoft could very well replicate the thing with a Black Flag remaster!
Convinced by these theories? Even if some of them seem a bit far-fetched, an Assassin’s Creed Black remaster could very well enter Ubisoft’s plans quite quickly. For these 8 reasons, Black Flag is one of the best episodes of the license and the publisher knows that it has a special place in the hearts of fans. Even if it’s not next year, the game will probably be entitled to its remake. Horror Games
