Ubisoft Has Been Wanting to Make an Assassin's Creed Game Set in Feudal Japan for a "Long Time"

The Nerd Stash: Assassin's Creed: Shadows is delivering what fans have begged for: an AC game in Feudal Japan. It turns out the devs wanted it just as bad.

Tell me lies tell me sweet little baby lies

Yet you never did it

We’ve been waiting for this since Assassins Creed III, hell even during Revelations people were mentioning it. So that’s over 12-13 years now.

The fact is they didn’t want to do it, saw how successful Ghost of Tsushima was and then decided to do it because someone else took the risk first

Is it me or is there a sudden surge of Ubisoft defenders on this site? 🤔

-Foxtrot3d ago

I saw this on a few subreddits aswell

Why the sudden urge to defend them after all the shitty things they’ve said and done.

I think they're defending "the message" not the game

To be fair, the article mentions that the 'devs' have been wanting to make a feudal Japan game for a long time.

We all know that it's the corporate execs that make the final decision on what games the devs will make.

Not really, it's complete bullshit


"People on the Internet suggest the most boring settings," said Hutchinson. "The three most wanted are WWII, feudal Japan and Egypt. They're kind of the three worst settings for an AC game."

And yet...

Alex Hutchinson left Ubisoft as Creative Director back in 2017 (that article from Complex is 12 years old). Surely there were actual devs since then (at least one from the nerdstash article) that wanted to do feudal Japan.

I know old games had it like black flag but when i saw that spearman with a red glowing dot i am like oh oh i know that game.

But hey we get to listen japan people play 80's hiphop while fighting english speaking generic asain dudes that all have the same face/hairstyle/moves/clothing

Meanwhile, this ancient article with comments from the director of AC3


Chocoburger2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Four thousand, four hundred, fifty-three days later, all 3 came to pass.

We got some WWII from Unity side missions. We got Egypt from Origins (yeah, it was boring just like Alex said it would be), and now we're getting Japan.

I have no interest in the 'new era' of AC games, that are such a repetitive grind, too bad because I've always wanted Japan back when I was a fan.

Quite sad it took them this long to get to an Asian setting for a big AC game.

The game looks pretty generic and rough unfortunately. The setting looks nice only because Japan already looks beautiful.

I'll pick it up for $15 on sale half a year from it's release lol.

You left hints at the end of the very first game for feudal japan, you later made an official statement saying you will never go to feudal japan, you compromised with the garbage AC chronicles. Then GoT did it for you, and better, now you want to come out with not only AC Shadows but also AC Jade. What a joke 🤣

Chronicles had China, not Japan.

They were waiting for the time to be ripe for when Yasuke's controversy would reach its peak.
