Without guns ninjas would kick pirates ass.

Also the pirate theme was to appeal to pc gamers..
j/k :)

it would make sense for a ninja kinda themed, feudal era Assassins Creed game...I mean, "Assassin"

Lol...they did this because they knew how great the ship mechanic was in ac3. Anyway, i am surprised that they workex on AC3 for years while they were making revelations and brotherhood. Must have been working on this too for next gen. So, was ac3 just a testing ground for this game?

And eventually, they have to go back to asia, or to the beginning of it all. That would be cool.

From watching the introductory trail, reading the details, and seeing the screen shots I have high hopes and am hyped for this installment. On the other hand I am still irked by the annual releases.... but I'm still hyped. Damn my infatuation with fictional history and the exploration of historical settings!

Should have used this sailing stuff for a pirate game. AC back to it's roots.

As much as I like Assassins Creed, I agree %100 with you..
Keep AC how it's been, for the most part. And, make a new Pirate IP.

I hated the ship-parts in Assassin's Creed III so i am not sure if i will buy this upcoming game although i like the setting.
