Assassin’s Creed Surveys The Future

Ubisoft has quietly but not secretly sent out a survery to loyal Assassin’s Creed series fans offering them a multiple choice list of possible future settings to take their award-winning, time-jumping, critical and commercial hit franchise.

These locations include:

  • The violent conflicts of the Imperial Dynasties in Medieval China
  • The advent of the mighty British Empire during Victorian England
  • The culmination of the Pharaoh Reign in Ancient Egypt
  • The invasion of the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors
  • The confrontation between British colonists and native Americans during The American Revolution
  • The overthrow of the Tsar Empire by the Communists during the Russian Revolution
  • The Warlord Battles in Feudal Japan
  • The rise of Cesar’s Empire in Ancient Rome

All hold much intrigue for the future and direction of the series. So, which of these choices would you most like to explore?

    China would be awesome! Imagine all the cool architecture and Chinese weapons.

    I’d definitely say to China, Victorian England, America(s), Japan and Russia (as this was nothing to do with assassination, and was more to do with political pressure, hence the abdication of the Tsar).

    The only settings which I would actively encourage are Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt as I believe the devs may be able to create an interesting story in a time which we don’t know as much about. Saying this, the environments in both locations could be very repetitive and if they choose to continue the Templar shit, both would be absolutely terrible.

    The best location for assassins creed is where the first was set, during the crusades in the holy lands. This is partly because the environments are very nice, but also because the Templars were relevant back then. They were a powerful organisation with much mystery surrounding them.

    In order to make a decent game in a different environment, they will have to drop the mystical and Templar crap. The Assassin’s Creed games have been shit since the second one. (By shit, I mean none of them have developed the game. On their own they are quite fun, but are nothing to do with what the game should really be about.)

    Previous comment fail:

    – I’d definitely say NO to China, Victorian England etc.

    i think japan would be a decent choice, there is already the assassin style people (ninjas) and a suitable group of individual warlords to support, maybe some are templars are trying to control local warlords and back them to become shogun, something like that, i dont think russia would work but they have made some references to that era in the truth section of ac2 so it does seem possible, but in regards to the ancient settings i dont think that would work as the templars did not exist until the crusades, but i had thought that the story would switch over to desmond as the primary character with how revelations ended

  6. I think Victorian England is the only logical location, however, Ancient Rome or Egypt would house much more fun and creativity as they are probably the most important civilizations in history.

    Why not Rapture?
