Assassin's Creed Black Flag sequel met with muted response from fans

The official Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag sequel is failing to get people invested, which is why Ubisoft needs to make an actual continuation.

Black Flag is without a doubt one of the best Assassin’s Creed games ever made. Not only did it feature one of the best protagonists in gaming, Edward Kenway, it also took the Assassin’s Creed series to the gorgeous Caribbean in one of its first truly open world games.

While a remaster, remake and sequel have been rumoured to exist for a while, Ubisoft is yet to officially continue Edward’s story in another game, much to the dismay of fans especially when assassins like Ezio have had multiple games dedicated to them.

A sequel of sorts does exist though, a webcomic called Assassin's Creed Black Flag : Forgotten Temple, which takes Edward on a mission to China following the events of the game.

Unfortunately it’s failed to impress the majority or readers, or at the very least it’s been met with a muted response.

On a Reddit post, one reader said “It's cool at most, I'm not seeing any evolution in Edward (now he's a father and has a family built). and it's not calling my attention either because there hasn't been anything important yet. but 1 negative point is that Edward still dresses like a pirate assassin, now that he is a master assassin in a way to be a mentor, I expected a more mature appearance.”

Another said “I haven’t read all of it, but from what I’ve seen so far, I find the story (both the historical and modern day parts) to be rather strange and inconsistent with established lore.”

Finally one said “I lost so much interest in one of the first scenes where someone calls Edward a ‘jerk’ It's meant to be 18th century historical fiction and they are using 20th century for some reason American-slang”

One day, Edward will get the sequel he deserves, and when he does he might just be the best Assassin’s Creed game of all time.
