I'm not saying you are right or wrong I just think to make a thread stating something as huge as that, saying you saw it but then make a thread without a link is kinda odd.

Pacmanate is right, you shouldn't title your thread as such.
The images you are showing have nothing to do with Blackbeard being a playable character. Blackbeard WILL be in the game, but as far as we know, he is going to be one of the protagonists, but you are not going to be able to play as him. The pictures are just concept art or modelling used to create him in-game.
As for the image you are saying you have seen, I am pretty sure it is this one:

It wasn't that one, he had a hat like blackbeard and a long black coat.

What website was this on? Was it an actual in-game screenshot with Blackbeard in the centre?
And are you sure it wasn't for some other game?

Well those pictures you posted weren't in game.

Sounds unlikely to me, but what do I know :). Maybe they will let some of the characters in SP be playable in MP?

They may do something like with they did with Haytham though. We played him at the beginning of AC3, then as Connor the rest of the game. It could that we control Blackbeard for a little while until he meets Edward and then we start controlling him instead.

So Blackbeard is related to Desmond and Edward?

Desmond is dead in case you didn't know...
Edward and Blackbeard are related somehow judging by the gameplay trailer, obviously not as family though.

Didn't Desmond's DNA or something rather like that get uploaded to the cloud?

It could be. But I heard somewhere that we will be in the future and that we will be the ones at the animus pretty much, like in first person.

We'll still be reliving Desmond's memories. His genetics are still accessible.

Probably just Edward in a different outfit.
Also, why the hell is he carrying pistols on his back? That simply can't be easy to use.

Joke's on you guys when he WILL be a playable character because I remember them mentioning co-op! And Lothario can bump this thread with all his smugness since you laughed at him calling this a fail thread.

I still think he is a playable character actualy, and what does smugness mean?

In case you didn't know we are accessing Desmond's memories through the cloud. In case you didn't know you know.

Also LOL at OP thinking that was AC.

Those pictures don't hint at Blackbeard being playable at all. He exists in the game...thus, he has concept art and a graphic rendering. That final picture is a rendering of the Blackbeard McFarlane Toys figure. The screenshot seems to be an early version of Ed Kenway with brown hair.

Edit: Woah...brain fart. For some reason I just read the first page and I thought those were all of the posts. I guess I'm late to the party. xD

Yeah i remember UBI 'mentioning' Co-op play too .........................
Then i also remembered how glitched & bugged AC3 was with only 1 playable character . So then just like Ubisoft, I realised Co-op was highly unlikely in AC4 or even this gen consoles for the AC series .

Next gen consoles AC 5 co-op perhaps .................PS3 / 360 AC4 - Nahhhhhhhhhhhh
