Assassin’s Creed 4: When & Where To Next? The Future of Assassin’s Creed: Caution! Spoilers ahead


"The big problem with a history-based series is that you have to match the known historical data with your own story.

This spawns a great many creative boundaries for a game developer.

But the Assassin’s Creed universe has a ready-made invented historic period that they could cover in Assassin’s Creed 4 that could be based on our ancient societies and architecture, but hand complete freedom to the developer."

The story is too old to be commented.

That would make a pretty cool game, but I bet they aren't quite brave enough to do it yet.

iamnsuperman1943d ago

I do not think it will work. The one thing (lets say "mission" statement) of the AC series is to go to places in history that isn't usually explored. I think the first civilisation would be cool but goes against that "mission statement". I see it staying in Europe if it is in the historic past as Europe ruled the world.

I think French revolution or industrial London could work. Again there are many time periods that can work and fit within the AC universe. I suspect it will be finding the other pieces of Eden to start another revolution

But wouldn't it be a shame if they've built this great backstory and ended with the conflict between Juno and Minerva and then not go there?

How can you build up to the end of the world and then suddenly go back to finding apples of Eden or whatever? For what reason? Another end of the world?

iamnsuperman1943d ago (Edited 1943d ago )


I agree it would be but where could they realistically go.


They have set up the big fight with Juno and how the Assassins need to fight her as it was their only option. They know that the Pieces of Eden (or what ever they are called) were used to over throw the ones that came before before and so history is kind of repeating itself. The could go there to see how they did it but they all ready know combining the pieces makes a bigger weapon.

I don't think you will get a full game that goes to FC times, but rather your going to get bits and pieces in each upcoming game.

I mean, I though AC3 would take place only in current times, and I was wrong

My theory is that the future character will be a descendant of eve, as only those interbred with the FC are immune to the POE's.

And you will go through different memories throughout history learning about the FC, and how they lost the war... but there will not be a full game about it

There will be no Assasins creed III, Im pretty sure thats what the developers said... Too bad so sad

Scotty0561943d ago

No, they said Desmond's story loop is over. They're open to more games as long as there is a demand and they have ideas. However they said it'd only be a few more games.

Egypt and the time of the Pharaohs of Course!

Would love to do some dives off the Pyramids!

Prince of Persia....Aladdin...

I like it, but think we'll get another Connor one first.

DeusExer1943d ago

I'm not too sure about that.

AC3 dealt with a fair chunk of Connor's life, and it seems like he has already completed the most important parts of his story.

But then again, Ubi could always make up some further narrative.

I think his decreased popularity will not see him back.
Also, how can we have another Connor game with the ending to AC3?

iamnsuperman1943d ago (Edited 1943d ago )

Well the biggest problem is that (like you said)


Desmond is dead. SO how can they realistically use Connor again unless they use another relative but that just seems to coincidental and also a lame story mechanic. Like the old you have destroyed the biggest bag guy ever only to have a new even worse enemy to appear all of a sudden


I agree he will not be back due to his unpopularity

Paris991943d ago

The way they could get him back is to have someone "hack" the Animus and explore its memory banks or some such nonsense.

That's why you can still 'play' the memories of Connor in the game even after SPOILER Desmond is dead.

They can always explain anything away...

gaminoz1943d ago

Connor could lead into the French Revolution, but they'd have to develop his character a bit beyond "I'm for my people and for freedom and a big grouch".

He needs more personality.

claud31943d ago

That would work on so many levels

Paris991943d ago

Hope the multi-player improves with its maps and characters!

gaminoz1943d ago

Agree: I love the Revelation maps way more.

Nimblest-Assassin1942d ago

Free roam ala Red dead would be awesome in an AC game

Proeliator1943d ago

We're gonna have a comment war because people are going to refer to a single thing without stating it, and everyone will say "Your idea sucks!"

On topic: I like the idea of the French Revolution. Maybe do it in a Brotherhood-style sequel in a year or two?
