Next Assassin’s Creed Could Go To Unexpected Place, Says Creative Director

For years now fans of the Assassin’s Creed series have speculated on which time periods and historic events could play host to future installments. But now Assassin Creed III’s creative director Alex Hutchinson has hinted that developer Ubisoft might be keen to take on a less popular choice of destination for their next adventure. (Alex Hutchinson, Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed III, Culture, PC, PS3, Ubisoft, Xbox 360)

*Gulp* don't mean...Canada?
ziggurcat  +   1201d ago
hahaha the main character would just keep saying, "sorry" anytime he/she bumped into the NPCs...
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1201d ago
Not going to lie... people here always assume something is there fault here

But Canadian history is boring... its pretty much about us being the bitch of American and the UK, and we essentially never gained any identity in the world

I dare any canadian to state an interesting moment in our history

Although a free roam game in modern day canada would be kind of interesting

@Nimblest Assassin

Battle at Vimy Ridge is all I can think of off the top of my head.

"Historians attribute the success of the Canadian Corps in capturing the ridge to a mixture of technical and tactical innovation, meticulous planning, powerful artillery support and extensive training"

Canada basically took out the Germans that were occupying that area while outnumbered by themselves (no real ally support if I remember right)

World Wars would be a nice place to place the next game

Of course not, I think it's clear he is talking about Russia.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1201d ago
Doubtful, the Fall and Chain comics where about a Russian Assassin

Maybe feudal japan?

Samurais and ninjas?

Thats what I am hoping for
Cam977  +   1201d ago
I hope there is at least a 2 year gap otherwise the franchise will get stale.
Jinkies  +   1201d ago
If Robin Sparkles is in the game then thats fine by me

"Come on Jessic, come on Tori, lets go to the mall you won't be Soorrry"

Come on guys you know the words
princejb134  +   1201d ago
new york would be cool
wouldnt mind climbing empire state building
Arcanine  +   1200d ago
No prehistoric times
FarCryLover182  +   1201d ago
Maybe the future?? How about the year 6776 on a moon colony where there are plenty of buildings to climb and where modern guns and etc have been outlawed. Dumb idea...but an idea nonetheless.
spirited  +   1201d ago
Mars would be unexpected...
Christopher  +   1201d ago
I can imagine it now, he'll be running assassination simulations with Curiosity the whole game.
barb_wire  +   1201d ago
Honestly - you could go anywhere in the 'Assassin's Creed' universe from a historical point of view..

The Napoleonic Wars
The French Revolution
World War I or II
Vietnam or Korean Wars

just to name a few.
Rupee  +   1201d ago
Feudel Japan would be cliche... but so much fun.
Locksus  +   1201d ago
I'd love to see the next AC take place during the French Revolution.
-Gespenst-  +   1201d ago
The world of the first civilization from the game!

They amount of creative possibilities this would provide!
Jinkies  +   1201d ago
It's going to be Newcastle with Sunderland being the Templars...

No but seriously I would love for them to do the WW2 idea but with a women Assassin in London where most of the male population in the country are off fighting the war. Like she finds out her Assassin roots after her kids get killed or kidnapped and you set out to kill Hitler. Really I just want to scale Big Ben

I could totally see an Assassin's Creed game taking place in Nazi occupied Paris during WWII, working alongside the French Resistance.
Rupee  +   1201d ago
Eiffel  +   1201d ago
Similarly yes, but I've been talking about the setting long before Saboteur for Assassins Creed. Been a fan of European history since high school and always thought that the setting would suit perfectly if Ubisoft was going to a point in history where players are killing Nazis.

Hitler having an Apple of Eden of course. His suicide being an assumption to his actual death at the hands of an assassin.

Yeah I agree that would be epic. Just asking if what you had in mind was similar to Sabateur.
GrahamGolden  +   1201d ago
i want asia....
japan or china...ASSASSINS where born there

who dont want to play a ninja with the AC mechanics lol

"jinkies" we have a female assassin already and its a vita exclusive

This is what I would like too. As soon as anyone mentions AC and ninjas people flip out and say its been done to death. I would like to know where all these ninja games are over the past few years because I want to play them. Ninjas have been used in plenty of games, but nothing to the extent AC would use them. Ninjas, samurai, villages, temples, the weapons, the martial could be great. It just makes too much sense, so therefore it wont happen.
ZigZagLagger  +   1201d ago
will Assassins Creed become the CoD of stealth/action?
-GametimeUK-  +   1201d ago
Yearly releases, minimal updates... it already is.
Nimblest-Assassin  +   1201d ago
The only one with minimal updates was revelations

ACB and AC3 brought a wealth of changes
InTheLab  +   1201d ago
The most unexpected place would be on vacation....
TrendyGamers  +   1201d ago
A futuristic, Mirror's Edge type game could be interesting.
Plagasx  +   1201d ago
Pretty sure it's gonna be somewhere in Japan.
Draperc  +   1201d ago
The Meiji Restoration perhaps? That would be pretty interesting.
soundslike  +   1201d ago
The "Next" one? Don't we have enough of it by now? In with watch_dogs, out with the refurbished asscreeds.

I have yet to play AC3 so not sure how much the overall story arc did advance. But as a spin off, playing as ADAM or EVE would be very refreshing for what you'd expect from an AC game.
ginsunuva  +   1200d ago
Sorry Ubi. You pulled a ME3 with this game. AC's future is tarnished forever.
braydox21  +   1200d ago
okay feudal japan is probably the only good one their. however not as a samurai but as a shinobi (ninjas) and the setting should be during the time when the Europeans were coming over to japan. the area such as bamboo forests, massive forts and castles, the only issue would be trying to try and implement the templer assassins war i suppose you could have it as ninjas vs the samurai clash, honour, or samurai supplied by European firepower aka Templers who wish to get an alliance with a Japanese dayiamo. weapons no problem
- katanas
- naginta's

- bows and arrows
- spears

some flaws that may present themselves:
ninjas operate in the night and shadows, of course you can have daylight ninjas that use disguises and what not and Japanease themed hood assassin apparel.

- not very large parkour type areas:
althought there is castles and that during the time, building are usually kept low as previouisly seen however since this judgment has only 5% research applied i am most likely wrong.

story: the only story i think would make the most sense would the fact that the templers and assains have heard of another artifact relevent to their causes which is located somewhere in japan in which the assains seek out help from the local ninja clan in which you a ninja recruit possibly sent by Ezio during assains creed brotherhood or revelations which i think that the time periods as well as the technology avaible should be relevent.
braydox21  +   1200d ago
for those looking for ninja games the only ones i can think of are the tenchu(ps2 i think) series and the shinobido revenge of zen(vita) both are ninja related while revenge of zen is good ninja fun,its not very good visuals, but its has assaination missions(generals, meerchants and Daimyo) its has thief missions(stealing rice barrels to lower a daiymo's food supply weakening their forces. obliteration, attacking transports and escorts. protecting and escorting.

if you do get it, turn off the back touch controls
TheDivine  +   1200d ago
We all know this all leading up to the eventual WW2 assassinate Hitler game. I admit i cannot wait for it myself. WW2, massive battlefields, airraids, sneaking past troops, snow fields, forests, destroyed cities, and eventually Hitlers Bunker. Stay tuned for the eventual Mussolini DLC!

They would have to handle it tastefully as there were so many atrocities commited and i dont think having death camps or mass graves would be right although historically accurate. Might be too much but i think that the game will happen and will rock. Needs to have at least a 3 year dev time and be a huge leap. Doesnt even need to use lots of guns make it more stealth.

I also nominate Fudal Japan, China during the great leap forward, Ancient Egypt, WW1, Civil War, Cold War Soviet Union with Cuba DLC, hell the possibilities are endless. It needs to change setting every game. No more trilogys in a similar town, time, and setting like 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations.

I think N4g needs a spell checker this will make many of these comments alot easier to read.
schlanz  +   1200d ago
I'd personally prefer something from more recent history.
