Ubisoft on 'Assassin's Creed' in Paris: Devs 'will have little margin for error'

Whether you're a consumer, developer, publisher or just plain fan of the Assassin's Creed franchise, one of the most enjoyable things to discuss is what would be a great time period and location for the next Assassin's Creed installment.

Earlier this year, Examiner.com spoke with the game director of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Ashraf Ismail and he thought it would be fun to see what the Assassin's Creed world would be like in Egypt. An intriguing setting that would be for a future iteration, and there are so many more.

Recently, Examiner.com had the chance to speak exclusively with Ubisoft North America President Laurent Detoc about what it would be like and why a development team has never tackled an open-world game that is set in Paris. (Assassin's Creed 5, PC, PS3, PS4, Ubisoft, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

We've seen WAY too many games set in japan already, seriously give it a rest and let ubisoft keep going for originality.

I think if they did a poll Japan would be at the top of the list honestly. That is the assassin's creed game I am waiting on.

I would get into AC if it did feudal Japan !
Dante81  +   129d ago
China-Ming Dynasty would be my choice.
Sevir  +   129d ago
Heck or even Somewhere in China!

I think I would enjoy Paris but you would lose the ship aspect of the game that brings a new diversity to the game that we love.

But with feudal Japan? Between ninjas, ronin, samurai, the buildings and the beautiful landscape that could put black flag to shame... You can still have ships (changing attacking tactics of course). But you also have key moments like the Mongols invasion

We want an assassin creed game set either in Japan or China dammit. Is that so hard to ask ? Beside a game called Remember Me have a setting take place in Paris even though it not an open world game.

Mongolian assassin? Imagine trying to assassinate Ganges Khang. Lol good luck. Now THAT would be a challenge.
Gregard  +   129d ago
or not.... counter and then X/Square :P

The series needs a rest.

As much as i'm enjoying Black Flag.

wish randoms would stop trying to turn ac into some generic ninja game. if you don't like the franchise that's fine, don't play it, but stop trying to turn it into something it's not.
