Last month, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s lead writer Darby McDevitt went on the record saying there was no modern world game planned anytime soon; but that doesn’t mean that Ubisoft are ignoring it entirely, since, as we all know, the present-day battle between the Assassins and Abstergo is just as important as the eras we keep visiting from title to title.
So in a new “Twitter Q & A” session, McDevitt will be tackling questions thrown his way today, as you can see in the tweet below:

I’m sure there are tons of questions burning inside Assassin’s Creed fans, especially since Desmond Miles, the descendent and co-protagonist of the first three Assassin’s Creed game heroes, had his story conclude in the last title. With Black Flag introducing Edward Kenway as the grandfather of ACIII‘s Connor/Ratonhnhaké:ton, just who is living through Kenway’s memories is as much a mystery as where the modern day plot is going.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is set to release to PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 in North America on October 29th, in Australia on October 31st, in Europe on November 1st, and in Japan on November 28th, and to PS4, Xbox One and PC by the end of the year.
