Assassin's Creed 4: 'Leaked' world map tips Caribbean setting

Backs previous reports of a Caribbean Island game with pirate focus

Below is an image of what's claimed to be the world map - or at least a part of it - from the unannounced but much-rumoured Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.


The map, passed to Kotaku - appears to reveal a number of details about the game, most obviously a Caribbean Island setting, with Cuba and Jamaica clearly present.

That, along with pirate signs, lines up with alleged Assassin's Creed IV leak reports yesterday which claimed to revealed the full title along with a pirate theme and a Caribbean setting.

The map also shows the year 1715 as the era, pre-dating Assassin's Creed 3's 1770s setting, along with the game's logo one again noting the 'Black Flag' subtitle.

While the game remains unannounced, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed earlier this month that Ubisoft plans to publish a new Assassin's Creed game during the 2014 financial year (by April 2014).

It was confirmed the game will take place in a new time period and star a new character, but little else was revealed.
