Assassin’s Creed IV Dev Calls Black Flag Development on Current-Gen ‘Nightmarish’

Posted on November 6, 2013 AT 11:25am

While answering fan questions in a Reddit AMAA for Assassin’s Creed IV, community developer Gabe Graziani described development of Black Flag on current-gen consoles as “nightmarish.”

“Development on both [next-gen] consoles was very smooth, since they are both similar to PCs,” Graziani wrote. “Last generation was very difficult, even nightmarish.

Both Xbox One and PS4 were very easy to deal with and the [first parties] were both there to help us out.”

And despite being in the dark about the Xbox One and PS4’s console requirements during development, Graziani described moving from current- to next-gen as a “super smooth” process.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag hits store shelves November 15 for PlayStation 4 in North America (November 29 in Europe), November 22 for Xbox One. For more on the latest Assassin’s Creed, check out Ray’s review of the PS4 version.
