Next Assassin's Creed set in Brazil?

The next Assassin's Creed game may be set in Brazil. Ubisoft Brazil managing director Bertrand Chaverot told Techtudo this week that the next entry in the company's stealth-action series is heading to the South American country.

The report was published in Portuguese and GameSpot has confirmed the translation. A representative from Ubisoft's North American outfit was not immediately available for comment.

Can't wait to climb to the top of that giant Jesus statue, and then dive into a pile of banana leaves. Sounds thrilling.

Will be a lot of nice booty in the game?

League_of_Draven1717d ago

Much like all of the games yes. You'll have to find it but there will be plenty of chests.

ginsunuva1717d ago

But don't chests contain booty?

Shane Kim1716d ago

Chest and booty? Sign me in!

i hope UBI doesn't kill this franchise just by making it a yearly thing, COD is slowing down and so will AC

next AC game should be for next gen systems so give fans some time and than bring out another i say in fall 2013 or even fall 2014

calis1717d ago

lol COD is slowing down? Going from the most sold game every year to...the most sold game ever year

Reverent1717d ago

calis, Black Ops 2 sold like 2 million less than Modern Warfare 3 in the first month. COD may still be selling very well, but yes, it is slowing down. Guitar Hero was a best seller for a long time, then people got bored of it, now it doesn't even exist anymore.

Feralkitsune1716d ago

Well AC3 was in dev for longer than a year.

MoB211716d ago

Fall 2013 is next year... which in my book would make this a yearly thing..?

Alos881716d ago

You're worrying about AC becoming a yearly thing... years after it became a yearly thing.

oh god another one of these already?

i will start playing this series when they are set in space on the moon because by the time it gets that ridiculous at least it will be entertaining right?

chukamachine1716d ago

rofl.

I don't want anymore AC.

It's overdone, boring now.

ChrisW1716d ago

Personally, I'd rather not go running around the slums of Sao Paulo. In real life or in game!

ShoryukenII1716d ago

If you don't like it, don't play it. :p

If they do what they did for Assassin's Creed III(ie. new engine) with this, then I won't be complaining.

Not a location I'd pick, but if they can tell a gripping and interesting story, why not.

I'd have rather had Japan or French Revolution.

Thefreeman0121717d ago

Unfortunately hutchetson won have it.. For so e reason he thinks it would be boring even tho everyone is clamoring for it

QuodEratDemonstrandm1717d ago

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Medieval Japan is riddled with intriguing ideas: ninja, Samurai, that sort of thing.
Because of this, the Ninja has become a cliche. THAT is why it will not happen in Assassin's Creed.

I wouldn't mind seeing it if it did. The ninja were masters of camouflage and covert movement (hiding and sneaking about) so they would fit into the AC universe nicely. The problem is there are already a crap ton of games featuring Ninja.

Thefreeman0121717d ago

I honestly prefer that to sticking an assassin in somewhere it doesn't fit that well... Connor felt like a forced character in the story line and didn't really fit in. I liked Ezio because he was a mixture of plausible and unconventional to his time setting

Deku-Johnny1717d ago

QuodEratDemonstrandm, Ninjas are nothing like those portrayed in other games though. Games such as Ninja Gaiden. Ninjas never wore black costumes. The way Ubisoft made sure they got the Native Americans correct in AC3 means they'd probably put a lot of effort into making sure ninjas were done properly.

Nimblest-Assassin1717d ago

I was sure that there would be a game in Ming Dynasty china and would follow shao jun

The assassin ezio trained before he died

He gave her something, that was not revealed

Brazil seems like a weird choice...

Reverent1717d ago

Deku-Johnny, thank you for bringing that up. It's so annoying when people think that REAL ninjas are exactly as they appear in movies and video-games. I too think that Ubisoft would really make sure that ninjas in their game (if it happened) would be very much authentic. If anyone can do it right, it's Ubi.

ShoryukenII1716d ago

I would like a series of games set in places like China and Japan similar to the Assassin's Creed II sub-series.

I don't know anything about Chinese history except that it would be awesome for an AC game. I know for a fact that Japan would be awesome and will happen at some point, no matter what any one says.

I agree with Deku-Johnny in that, there have been many Ninja games. But how many real Ninja games have a true open world, a good story and authentic portrayal of Japan? Because I think all of those are important for a real ninja game.

TopDudeMan1717d ago

Yeah, japan would be awesome. I've been saying that for ages. Samurai warriors everywhere.

QuodEratDemonstrandm1717d ago

I was looking at the birth of the German Empire in the 1870s.

The reason for this is the Assassins were based on the Muslim sect Nizari Ismaili, the original Assassins, and the slogan, "Nothing is true. Everything is permitted." was attributed to them by German philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche(1844-1900), who apparently had quite a bit of praise for their moral code.

Then again, Nietzsche's mustache would crash all but the most powerful gaming PCs.

ronin4life1717d ago (Edited 1717d ago )

Not medival Japan Just after that.

Late 19th century Japan had samurai, warring factions centered around two major ideologies, loads of covert and small scale armed incidents, guns(continuing past the revolution) and a crap ton of assassinations.

Fighting the shinsengumi one moment and then moving to assassinate a western military advisor the next... the setting screams assassins creed in EVERY WAY. Ubi would be stupid to pass on it.

Edit: it was also the ending of the nations isolationist policy, so the story could revolve around the templars and assassins making deeper roots in the country. The more you look at it, from the faction set-up to the historical personalities(ryoma sakamoto) I can't think of a better timeframe for assassins creed.

Simon_Brezhnev1717d ago

I rather they do Spring and Autumn period. Japan has been done to death. I know not realistic though. Only chinese time period game thats been done is Three Kingdoms

ronin4life1717d ago (Edited 1717d ago )

The assassins didn't exist in the storyline at that point.(I've only played 1 and 2 so far, so this is based off that) Perhaps similar groups as the assassins and templars faced off, but the story traditionally follows them. And they weren't formed until after the 11th century ad, more than 1000 years after the spring and autumn period.

The era I mentioned had two main games set in it released recently here: stw: rise of the samurai and way of the samurai 4. And before these, there were NONE. So it isn't really overdone. It has two major factions; the french backed Shogunate(in real life, the templars were mostly based in france) and the British/everyone else backed imperial parties, both of which had fanatical near religous support from their members. It was a time of rapid political, social, economical and war related change, which fits the assassins creed requirements well. And it takes place after the american revolution, which took place after the renaissance(please excuse mah bad spelling... >.>), which took place after the crusades; so it fits an appearant timeline.

What grinds my gears isn't just how lame it would be to ignore this timeframe, but the "reasons" behind why it would be skipped... ridiculous.

PhantomT14121716d ago (Edited 1716d ago )

I completely agree with you. This period has only been portrayed in "The Last Samurai" which was a complete fantasy in terms of historical accuracy just like "The Patriot" was for the American Revolution (this period wasn't about morons holding on to their swords and running to death towards guns), and The Fall of the Samurai add-on which was pretty accurate but couldn't get it right too because it was a strategy game. It wasn't about territorial conquests unlike the Sengoku period on which the original Shogun 2 game is based so it's understandable, but it was more about political intrigues and that's more of a ground for Assassin's Creed.

josephayal1717d ago

maybe Feudal Japan or The African Jungle

djslimzz1716d ago

I would have prefered Egypte, but Japan s
