The Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag sequel is absolutely massive, Ubisoft confirms.
Released in 2013, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is considered to be the last of the old-school games in the series with the next entry being Assassin’s Creed: Unity. Though we did get AC: Rogue in 2014, but that was a spin-off to Unity.
Starring the charismatic Edward Kenway and set during the Golden Age of Piracy between 1715 to 1722, Black Flag let players live out their pirate fantasy on the open sea like never before. Sure, the AnvilNext engine felt outdated at the time as I moved into the PS4 and Xbox One era, but we’d not seen this level of charm in the series since the Ezio Auditore days.
So, it stands to reason that fans have longed to see the return of Edward Kenway in the Assassin’s Creed series. While it may not be in the form of a new video game entry, fans can get a taste of the lovable pirate, Edward Kenway with the upcoming webcomic sequel.
As reported by DualShockers, Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple, is a sequel to Black Flag and it will be absolutely massive, consisting of 150 chapters over three seasons. The first six episodes will be available on 24 April with the rest being released on a weekly basis via the Korean digital webtoon platform. The series will be translated into English.

In this series, Edward is on the hunt for the Pieces of Eden and his adventure leads him to Southeast Asia. Oh and of course, no Assassin’s Creed story will be quite complete without the dastardly Templars, and they too will be making their presence known.
What’s more, Mr Kenway will meet a new character named Noa, a Korean-American descendant of Edward, said to have similarities with the previous series protagonist, Desmond Miles. We can’t wait to check out Assassin’s Creed: Forgotten Temple.
