New Evidence of the Rumoured Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Remake has Surfaced Online

An update from a developer at Ubisoft provides further evidence of the much-rumoured Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag remake, which was first reported last year.


Ubisoft Singapore’s involvement in Skull and Bones would be a good match for the Black Flag remake if the rumours prove true.
News of an “unannounced Assassin’s Creed project” on LinkedIn adds fuel to the fire of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag remake rumors. The Assassin’s Creed 4 remake was reported to be in development last year, but it was claimed that the game was still in the early stages. These reports also claimed that Ubisoft Singapore, the team behind the upcoming Skull and Bones, was also involved in development.

After several delays, it finally seems that Ubisoft is sticking to the February 16 release date for Skull and Bones. Since both Skull and Bones and Assassin’s Creed 4 feature naval combat, Ubisoft Singapore seems like a good choice for the Black Flag remake. That being said, the aforementioned delays and Skull and Bones’ slightly underwhelming appearance over the years has been a bit of a concern for fans of the fan-favorite Assassin’s Creed game. Despite this, the much talked about remake has yet to be confirmed by Ubisoft, so it remains a rumour. However, a recently spotted LinkedIn biography update might give the rumours a little more credence.

It’s been 10 years since Assassin’s Creed Black Flag hit store shelves, and the rumors surrounding a possible remake couldn’t come at a better time.
Isaac Tan, lead film designer at Ubisoft Singapore, now lists an “unannounced Assassin’s Creed project” on his profile. An update to Tan’s profile, which was first brought to his attention by Assassin’s Creed News on social media, claims that he has been working on the project since 2023, which coincides with rumours of a rumoured Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag remake. Tan previously served as lead cinematographer on Skull and Bones and Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

The post, roughly translated by Google, re-states that Tan has been working on the project since 2023, and speculates that this may refer to the Black Flag remake. Again, the rumors are unsubstantiated for now, but the pieces are starting to fall into place if the news is indeed true. Ubisoft taking the talent of Skull and Bones and Assassin’s Creed Mirage makes a lot of sense. Skull and Bones bears some similarities to Black Flag, and Mirage more or less returns to the stealth combat-focused gameplay that predates action-RPG-oriented Assassin’s Creed games like Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla.

Fans of the franchise in general are a fan of Black Flag, as it is widely regarded as one of the best Assassin’s Creed games. Black Flag essentially took the genre-defining combat mechanics of the earlier installments and put them into an open-world pirate game.

Since Skull and Bones originally started out as a Black Flag sequel, some thought that a remake might finally be a way out for a game with such a troubled development. However, it appears that this is not the case, as Ubisoft is committed to a February release for Skull and Bones.
