Ubisoft is reportedly working on a remake of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, according to a report by Kotaku.
The news of the remake comes while Ubisoft is still dealing with challenges in the production of Skull & Bones, another pirate-themed game.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, originally released in 2013, was praised as one of the best games in the series.
The remake is being developed by Ubisoft Singapore and is expected to take a few more years to complete.
Black Flag takes players back in time to the Caribbean, where they control Edward Kenway, a privateer turned pirate turned assassin.
While there have been remasters of previous Assassin's Creed games, this would be the first complete rebuild of an entire project.
Fans have long requested a remake of the first Assassin's Creed game, but a rebuilt version of Black Flag would also be highly anticipated.
The sources of the news in the Kotaku report have chosen to remain anonymous but claim to be familiar with the early stages of the remake.
The development of the Black Flag remake suggests Ubisoft's recognition of the game's popularity and the potential for revisiting its beloved pirate-themed gameplay.
