Jean Guesdon, the creative director currently working on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, says that he and his team are excited to play the coming Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar and Watch Dogs, the title created by another team at Ubisoft.
But the developer also believes that his own game can offer an experience that both titles, based in modern or near future worlds, lack.
He is quoted by The Official Xbox Magazine that,. “both of their universes offer something fresh and different! But when it comes to what we’re doing, we believe our promise and setting are very different from both of those games.”
Black Flag is piracy themed and will expand the naval battle elements that were introduced in the third full game in the series while also giving players missions set in the towns of the Caribbean.
