Ashraf Ismail has mentioned that he would like to see the next intalment of Assassin's Creed series to be set in Egypt. Here there is a list of the arts that describes an Egyptian assassin.
anything but civil wars. also maybe china/india for 6 then? theyve got plenty of cultural history to mess around with
I can't wait for the time they do Victorian England! Jack the ripper,Mary Ann Cotton,Oliver Twist. Hopefully with a new next gen engine. Imagine roaming the city on a stormy night.
Egypt would be cool but i find it funny how Ashraf Ismail only said it be a cool place to go. Just seems like web sites are running with it too much when all he said was it be a cool place to go. I'm expexting a web site to say confirmed here soon or take what he said out of context just for hits.
the assumption here is too much. He "would like" .. that does not mean it "may be set" on Egypt. Anyhow I'm not against the concept of an egyptian assassin. It would be nice to have a Japanese setting, however.
Japanese setting would work. Especially during the time the European trade ships starting arriving. A more ambitions setting would be to follow the route of Marco Polo, but that would require to build alot of cities I guess (maybe this is better suited for Uncharted series that AC).
Ahhh!! I was hoping for a Japan setting.
Honestly, I do not care. I've been a fan of Ezio's trilogy. I don't find Connor Kenway to be an interesting character. Dunno, I did not play ACIII until the end. Pardon my opinion if I insulted any fans of the franchise.
I completely understand you. Ezio was very cool, charming and interesting. Connor, not so much. I'd rather hear "va bene" than "where is charles lee?" all day.
atleast edward kenway is just like ezio
Though I agree with you on Ezio being a more interesting character than Conner but an assassin should not be flamboyant because that would attract unnecessary attention to him/her. Bubbles to you for having an interesting and polit comment, qualitites hard to come by on this site.
I want them to get back to Altair. I want them to start the story when he is training to become an assassin
Connor's biggest problem is that he didn't say "Cloudia" even once. Lol sorry that is a running joke between a buddy and me. Anytime we hear or see the name Claudia. OT: I am glad that they went with the pirate setting sooner, rather than later. I know a lot of people really want the Japan setting. And while I too would enjoy that, there really are some good games out there with ninjas and samurai, ect. I personally have never played a great pirate game. I would really like to see an AC game set in most iconic times/regions. Feudal Japan, Victorian London, present-time/future setting all sound good to me.
I'd rather see Victorian London setting than pirates era. And I guess future setting would make a nice place to start if the gameplay is good.
Looking forward to it. The only drawback i see here is the actual "lack" of tech the team has to sacrifice or compensate for. No dual hidden blades, blowgun (captain kenway), guns (hidden and not). Almost all of the gadgets of Ezio and the assassins that came after him were from the ideas of Altair's research. Ancient egypt is way way back of the 3rd crusade's time. Though it would be interesting to see how they manage to pull it off.
Which is why the series can only go forward in time. It is the prequel syndrome situation where the prequels have cooler looking tech (i.e. Star Wars prequel. R2D2 was a machine in the prequels). Without looking stupid you have to go forward or go back in tech but no-one will like that. So I am seeing periods after the Revolution as the next "proper" setting
Japan has lots of cool tech.
i think we need a modern one, you know, test the waters if people dont like set it back a couple years.
We did. Desmond Miles' storyline was the modern one.
yawn....i cant believe how these people keep ripping these idiots off each year for the the same inferior game.
It'd be really cool with an Asian-inspired 'Creed game. A whole new estethic enviorment and cultural characters made with the modern game-engines.
Moses as the Assassin liberating his people from the Templar Pharoahs
please give me japan feudal era assasin creed
FINALLY! Egypt is perfect!
Egypt would be EPIC!!! Haven't played a good game based in Egypt since Exhumed on the Sega Saturn! On te new hardware it could look awesome!
I find that strange because there are currently 3 AC games in development. I'm sure development on AC5 is pretty far in, so unless he is just teasing us, or maybe he just doesn't know because maybe another dev team is handling it. I just find it weird that he "hopes" because he could just call up another team or Ubisoft studio and ask.
No one cares about AC anymore. It'll be the same thing in a different map.
Old old days Egypt is cool. But, please don't make it in current day Egypt (or anything after 1950s) Too much chaos, hatred and bloodshed.
Egypt could be cool
