The environment and atmosphere is what makes each Assassin's Creed installment special. That background is absolutely critical.
So, where are we going next? We've been to Constantinople in the Middle Ages, Italy during the Renaissance (still my personal favorite), America during the Revolutionary War, and the South Seas during the golden age of pirates. How's about feudal Japan as the next era…?
Ubisoft still says it's a possibility. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag creative director Jean Guesdon told VG24/7 that feudal Japan is one of the many time periods and locations the team is considering for the future. However, Guesdon added that "the entire human history is our playground," which really means they can focus on anywhere and anything. That's the cool part about this series, by the way.
Fans have also requested ancient Egypt, World War II and the British Raj (colonial India). I still want to go to Europe during medieval times; you know, when the Knights of the Round Table were in existence and all that. Considering that we start to hear about Templar lore right around that time, it would also fit in with the franchise's ongoing underlying plot.
Where do you want to go?
