"We could have an Assassin's there," says producer
Why not WW1, I think it’s a better fit because it started with an assassination, or maybe the French or Russian revolutions.
Very good point. Also a lot of the war was trench warfare. Would make for some interesting stealth parts.
That would be an awesome time. One of Desmond's ancestors originally coined the term "let them eat cake", wait and see :P.
I was also thinking that Paris or Saint Petersburg would have been great locations for the next one. I know both cities well and they would be great. And there is no shortage of potential stories in European history. I've been to many of the major cities in Europe and nearly all of them would work well. London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Prague, Budapest, Barcelona etc., the series could go on for a very long time provided they continue to come up with interesting characters and stories.
Very cool idea. They could really roll with that history and shake it all up. Central Europe for the setting definetly. Tie it to the bavarian illuminati or something. Might be too much of a leap in time however. If not that set it between 17 - 1800's England.
cmooon we all want to kill nazis with our hidden blades
Besides, WW2 already has an assassin. A velvet one.
lol And look how that turned out. http://www.metacritic.com/g...
It might have a velvet one, but it still needs a good one.
And we already had The Saboteur, an open world action adventure game set in that era, and it didn't do too well. Though it is one of my favorite games.
The Saboteur was a great game. It just got a bit repetitive after the main story.
Agreed, but that can be said for most every game of this type. If you're going to go for 100% completion both AC2 and RDR are also a slog. I was fed up with most of the activities in RDR by the 60% point. And I did complete all 3 to 100%.
i would like one in china or some asian backstory.
Why does everyone forget about WWI? That was "The Great War" as well. I'd be more interested in a WWI thing, sorry. Seriously, I think there HAVE been WWI games, but they've all been supernatural.
Assassin's Creed could work in any period of time. But please not WW2, it's too obvious.
no..no no no no no,not WW2,i want it in Egipt in the times of pharaons,or japan in the times of samurai and ninjas(they hinted that in the end of the first game)
"So maybe in this context you were a woman in England during WWII. Why not? Nothing prevents us from doing it." Desmond prevents you from doing it, completely forgetting about that part of the storyline are we?
Who said you had to play as Desmond. The Adam and Eve videos in the second game allude to the fact that Desmond may be the descendant of Adam. Thus there may be a female assassin who is descended from Eve. Not too far of a stretch to say a future AC game would star a female.
Correct me if I'm wrong but, Adam isn't asexual. So he'd be a descendant of both Adam and Eve wouldn't he?
Uh ? All the fucking human race descends from adam and eve , idont want to play with a female char on AC but i dont see your point explaining why we could play with a girl, maybe Ezio had a daughter and she become a an assassin ... Or im I missing something here ?
lol adam and eve incest...
Make it in Japan!! An assassin ninja would be so epic!!
Modern america would make a great place! So many targets to assassinate.
Feudal Japan plox
I'm thinking Mongol/China era. Genghis Khan's army taking over almost all of the eastern continent.
of the developers considering feudal Japan for the second game. I still think to this day that that's the setting they should have opted for.
Venice is my favorite city so I loved that they used it in AC2. I think it adds to the game when you are familiar with the real world location. But Japan would be great, I've been many times and can't get enough of it. Old Kyoto would be a great location.
Make it on the future ! Assassins creed on space ! Secretly assasinating aliens ! LOL Why not make on times that were miracles apening,like Moises or Jesus age, because the game says that their were all a big scum, their were using tecnology and not miracles.
We've seen enough damn WWII games to last a lifetime. Opt for something more original, like China during the communist takeover. Something different at least!
Yeah but we dont know anything about the Communist takeover on China,well its not something that we heard too often, and the WW2 everyone knows at least something, and yeah it could work, but not with a female character xD.
They could do something cool with WWII I guess. Like have people who were part of Operation Valkyrie be part of the Assassins. Then again the Assassins didn't really use bombs nor were they Nazi scum. I don't know for some reason I'm picturing Altair sneaking around Normandy Beach snapping Nazi necks and cashing American checks. America. Fuck yeah.
Jumping around war torn Europe would be pretty sik. Imagine a mission where you had to sneak into a nazi base to eliminate Hitler :O
Assassin's Creed's charm rests in the fact that the eras where you play as one of Desmond's ancestors largely do not rely heavily on guns. I mean, yeah the new Brotherhood game contains tanks, but Renaissance style tanks that are nothing like today's, or even WWII era, equivalent. There's something about stalking your target, getting up close and personal without being noticed, and then using the hidden blade to eliminate him/her (there hasn't been a female target that I know of has there?) that is a lot more satisfying that the disconnection of a projectile weapon. And really, if the Assassin was seen, he would be shot at because there were no swords or anything like that used in WWII. Besides, we already have a more modern style game like that in Hitman. A Japan setting would be awesome. The Assassin could be a ninja. Lol.
Ninjas are the ultimate Assassins and they should have been included in the story.
WWII would be cool. As long as it isn't set in France as you're fighting on the side of the resistance. That's played to death. WWII is fine as long as we get to play something that hasn't been dxone to death. Historically, I'd love to see a Creed game set within the confines of the American Revolution. Now that would be pretty fuckin sweet!
I just wanna see something different then these middle age times its getting boring. I did not like the second one to much tho its not horrible and id buy it really cheap.
Very intresting indeed. That would be really awesome to the finale game to end with a bang to be set in WW2. But than again, i would also want fedul Japan.... >_<
needs to take place in XIX th century London and Paris (and at least one other city. Prague, maybe). It could be an opportunity to pitch us against some famous serial killers (Jack the ripper, the alchemist...), in a dark, foggy atmosphere. it would kick ass! :D Plus, think about it, it makes sense in the AC timeline: AC1: y. 1000ish AC2: y. 1400ish (400 years later) AC3: y. 1800ish (400 years later) Come on Ubi, make it happen! Where do I have to submit my idea?! Do they have a forum somewhere?
Am feelin' that. Start off as an Orphan in the Workhouse (ala Oliver Twist). The workhouses are run by Templars! Then your Assasin family bust you out o' that shithole. Working as thugs for some Fagin-like character. It's definetly the right time period the game should head towards though.
Please Ubi, don't start talking about AC3 before everything to do with Brotherhood hasn't come and gone. I was already unsure if Brotherhood should have been released so soon because I thought "surely the game can't be different at all apart from situations and smaller features if it's being released so soon after ACII, right?". I'm dying for ACIII already, much more so tha Brotherhood, but hearing info on it already when we know that it's not gonna be out in 2011 and before their next game has even been released yet isn't great.
they'd have to put gun use in it and it could end up being a third person shooter!
I hope its not in WW2, I love the time setting of the first two, and I want them to be older. WW2 is too recent
I also hope it isn't ww2 i reckon it needs to be set around the time of the pirates in the Carrabiean/New World ww2 would be silly because there is so many ww2 games
