Though it hasn't been talked about in any official capacity, a lot of people may have already guessed that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag would have some sort of present day component. These screens would suggest the same, showing an Abstergo corporate building, the modern day headquarters of the Templar Order.
I have to admit (please don't rage) that I can't find it in me to get excited for Blag Flag after what happened with Assassin's Creed III. No spoilers, but things were pretty final, so it's interesting to see how Ubisoft will be explain that away.
