Ubisoft: Assassin's creed in feudal Japan would feel too familiar

Edwin Evans-Thirlwell says "I rather like Alex Hutchinson, the outspoken creative director of Far Cry 4, but in one regard, he and I are and shall forever remain mortal foes.

I strongly disagree with his comment. Feudal Japan would be an amazing setting for AC. What feels "too familiar" are all these western settings. We've had too many western settings.

That said, this comment was from a couple years ago. The fact that Ubisoft are releasing Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China shows they are testing the waters as far as Asian settings are concerned.

Their getting on my nerves. It's always an excuse on why they can't do certain things. I would run down a list of what pisses me off about Ubisoft but then I would just give myself a headache
