Liberation was released only to PlayStation Vita and was running parallel to that of Connor's. Liberation was not positively received from critics.  

This is the sixth major instalment in the Assassin's Creed series. The story will be featuring three main cities Havana, Kingston and Nassau. Haytham's father and Connor's grandfather, Edward Kenway is the protagonist of the game. The story begins in 1715 when Kenway joins the secret society of Assassin's.

The game will have an open world setting with fewer restrictions set for the players. Players will have the freedom to capture, board and engage passing ships. They can also swim in the beaches. Along with these, Ubisoft Montreal has retained the hunting system that existed in Assassin's Creed 3, hunting can take place both on land and on sea.

Players can also use a companion app on their iOS and Android mobile devices or tablets, which shows the entire map of the world and also the treasure map if a player finds one.

Black Flag will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U on 29 October in North America and 1 November to Europe. The game is also expected to roll out for next-generation consoles like Xbox One and PlayStation 4 when those consoles arrive, by this year end.

"It's the most fresh and fluid world we've ever built. It was a challenge and outside our comfort zone but we're starting to see the fruits of our labour," said Ismail.
