Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag was gotten rid of from Steam as a result of a “technical issue,” rushing hopes of a shadow-dropped remake. 

Last week, followers observed that the pirate-themed parkour ’em up was missing out on at work on Valve’s store without description offered. Could it be connected to the reported Black Flag remake or something much more uncommon? Sadly not – it’s simply a technological concern. 

“We are aware that Assassin’s Creed Black Flag is currently unavailable for purchase on Steam,” a Ubisoft agent informed PCGamer. “This is due to a technical issue, and our teams are working on a solution to bring it back as soon as possible.”

Ubisoft plainly had not been fooling around when it claimed “as soon as possible either”, as the game is back on Valve’s store at the time of creating. Sadly, it’s not the remake, yet it’s something. 

If you’re perplexed concerning what this remake lark has to do with, Kotaku reported previously this year that such a task is underway at Ubisoft Singapore – itself working with the often-delayed Skull and Bones, which is a growth of Black Flag’s navel antics. It all comes cycle. 

According to the record, growth is still in the onset so you’re most likely not seeing the reported remake for some time, if it does wind up taking place. Rather, successive for the collection is Assassin’s Creed Mirage, as a result of launch October 5, 2023 – an entire one week earlier than initially prepared. 

As for Skull as well as Bones, the much-delayed pirate game results from launch “early 2023-24”, though that’s absolutely looking even more like 2024 right now. 

Assassin’s Creed Mirage can thankfully be beaten in 20-30 hours, five times shorter than Valhalla.
