Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is just enjoying its run this year, but it seems that Ubisoft has very high hopes for the life of the franchise, as it is already considering the Assassin's Creed 5.

This time, it seems that the developers are taking into great consideration what the gamers want to see for the next game. GameSpot reports that Ubisoft first leaked materials (in the form of a survey) to IGN in order to see what the gamers may want for Assassin's Creed 5.

While there have been no official announcements of Assassin's Creed 5 plans from Ubisoft, it seems that the interest that the publisher is trying to attain seems to heavily hint at a possible follow-up.

There has even been hints of non-Assassin's Creed pirate games in the survey, though this can also pertain to the possibility of the game being extended in some form or manner.
