I first heard about this article from Darby's twitter feed, he owned them there! So much for fact checking.

Someone needs to work on their grammar.

If you read the article at the very end you'll find this :

" Correction: Details about the ship on which the interview took place have been amended. You can find out more about The Star of India here."

In the original article the author stated that the ship, The Star of India, was a replica ship and that Ubisoft liked to play hard and fast with historical accuracy.
