A game that many consider the best in the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, has mysteriously vanished from the Steam platform. This development has fueled rumors and speculation about a potential remake.
Back in June, reports emerged suggesting that Ubisoft had plans for a remake of Assassin’s Creed 4, alongside projects like Assassin’s Creed Mirage, AC Infinity, and Assassin’s Creed Red.
While sources familiar with Ubisoft’s activities mentioned the AC 4 remake, it was said to be in its early stages and might not materialize for several years. Officially, Ubisoft has not commented on the existence of an Assassin’s Creed 4 remake.
Vanishing Act on Steam
As of Thursday, September 7, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is no longer available for purchase on Steam. Notably, it has also been removed from the Assassin’s Creed bundle on the platform, which typically includes all the mainline entries in the open-world series.
However, it’s worth mentioning that Black Flag can still be found on the Ubisoft Store. The removal from Steam doesn’t necessarily indicate a remake in the works, as games are sometimes temporarily delisted for technical fixes or significant updates.
A Clue in the Replacement
In a related move, the original version of Assassin’s Creed 3 has been removed from Steam and replaced with the remastered edition released in 2019. This has sparked hope among fans that Ubisoft might be preparing the way for the arrival of a Black Flag remake. But it’s essential to manage expectations and await official information.
PCGamesN has reached out to Ubisoft to inquire about the removal of Assassin’s Creed 4 from Steam. We will keep you updated with any comments or additional details provided by Ubisoft regarding this intriguing situation.
