If Ubisoft didn't already have enough Assassin's Creed projects in the works, there's now a new report from Kotaku, claiming it's working on a remake of the fourth major game Black Flag (aka "the pirate one").

According to "two sources familiar with the plans", who are apparently not authorised to discuss this information publically, the remake is still in its "earliest stages" and still has at least a few years to go before it's complete.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was originally released on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2013 and developed by Ubisoft Montreal. In the case of the remake, Ubisoft Singapore - known for evolving Assassin's Creed "ocean tech" and the main studio behind Ubisoft's upcoming project Skull and Bones - is believed to be "heavily involved".

Ubisoft has declined to comment on the Kotaku report, but if we hear any developments, we'll let you know.
