    AC5 could probably take a background in Indonesia in the year 1600 to 1900 because at that time the kingdom in Indonesia was colonized by the Dutch royal imperial

    That sould be really cool, and they can make a huge story around it with the concentracioncamps, politic actions, jappanese occupie.

    I would love an AC5 in Egypt to see the pyramids and the treasures they may hold and also to see how the pharoahs would come into play.Or Africa would be nice too.

    For the people who have finished AS4, the last achievement is "I could see that coming..." Or something along that line when kenway is in the theatre and it's reviled to us that he has a son (or grandson) we don't know. My assumptions are that the next game will follow the kenway bloodline (as we all know mr mills is dead). The only major event in history that fits with the age of kenways children or grandchildren is the Napoleonic Wars 1807 to 1815. Fits the Templar storyline very well with super power vs underdog. AS5 still leaves a lot open at the end with Desmin's associates and the abstergo plot. At this point in time they can't jump to far forward in time because the closer you get to modern day the fewer options you have for games since jumping back in time really isn't an option since the story has progressed so far with the ancents

    When you finishen ac4, you'll get the achevement "deja vu",and Haytham ( the little boy at the theatre, WHO is flathet to Connor in Ac3) is Edwards son.

    i think japan would be nice, so can be egypt. but the thing is they should also put a disguise element in the game as it is in hitman.
  • lugen12 - November 24, 2013 1:47 a.m.

    i could totally see Assassin's creed 5 taking place during ether the Egypt or wild west period's since they seem to always seem to choose stoic character's the exception being Ezio during his early year's and having them go through tragic event's and the wild west seem's to fit the bill for that plus they are just introducing shooting as a real mechanic in the game with the flintlock pistol's that were common during Edward's time but i could also see them sticking with somewhere with plenty of boating since they are just introducing that mechanic in the game aswell as they've tested it in 3 and then did a full go of it in 4 so i could also see the Caribbean or japan aswell just saying thanks for listening to this :)

    Ubisoft is trolling hard with this series...Dragging it out as long as they possibly can...I just wanna know how it goes down, between Abstergo and the assassins, and even the ancients....However i bet they will drag it on another 2 or 3 games before a resolution is reached.... I dont even care where AC5 is gunna take place, however during The Third Reich in Nazi Germany would make for a cool game(most likely never happen though) either way iv played em all, so play the next one too, wherever it takes place. I only hope they put more time into your PRESENT day story. They came at it a new awesome way with AC4, until the entire game was pretty much about Edward Conway and not at all about your present day character...
  • joshua-logan-edwards - November 13, 2013 10:49 a.m.

    I dont know if it has been brought up yet but i think it might be cool if they did a sequel to 3 where you play as connor again in the French revolution, the story could be his new assasin mentor sends him to france to help the cause, i think it would be cool maybe make friends with napoleon and also thomas jefferson could be in it as well
  • TGlaraton - November 11, 2013 9:57 a.m.

    I'd actually been kicking around the idea of a 19th century America Assassin's Creed, and it's interesting that a few of the things i'd been considering are here. Helping run the Underground Railroad, chasing down John Wilkes Booth, a younger Abraham Lincoln... If they can do it right the Civil War has some excellent potential for impressive setpieces as well if they don't overwhelm the game, there's Antetim, Gettysburg, climbing up a cliff to capture Vicksburg, Sherman's March to the Sea. You could run a steamboat down the Mississippi, maybe meet Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain). Characterwise you have a lot of interesting opportunities: Samuel Clemens, Abraham Lincoln, and Ulysses S. Grant (a very colorful individual in real life). But if you could do it right, Robert E Lee could be a very compelling character, considering he wanted the country to remain intact but chose to fight for the Confederacy because his home state was Virginia. Plus, slavery definetly seems like it'd be something the Templars would be very interested in. Make it happen Ubisoft!

    Russia revolution, 1917 would be ideal, it just seems everyone has a hatred towards Russia.
  • Endorphinated25x - November 6, 2013 5:51 p.m.

    I feel that Japan would be a bit cliche unless they managed to execute it correctly. Also, I think they could pull off American Midwest. Plus, didn't they say they were making a Kenway Trilogy? Since Edward was the first to join the Assassins and he's dead and Haytham's dead that would only leave a Connor sequel or Connor's children/grandchildren getting their own game wouldn't it? What I'd really want though is something in Mexico. Like a prologue set during the First Mexican Empire and then the main game would be the prologue character's child during the Second Mexican Empire/Franco-Mexican War. The First Mexican Empire was post-Mexican independence with a short lived monarchy and the Franco-Mexican was essentially Napoleon III's alliance with Spain and England trying to install a puppet monarchy and replacing the Mexican Republic that replaced the monarchy after the fall of the First Empire. It's pretty obvious the Assassins would side with Benito Juarez, who resisted the French and went on to establish progressive reforms to modernize Mexico. Plus, awesome architecture, guns aren't that modern, various ruins to explore, big battles. It's got everything! Only thing that wouldn't work is that it probably be too late in Desmond's bloodline for there to be a Mexican Ancestor so we'd have to wait for Ubisoft to start using someone else's DNA. Man...every post-release of an Assassin's Creed game drives me insane with the possibilities for the next game. I just hope it's not next-gen exclusive.

    There is only one word to describe what I feel about your opinion (and mine too).. Si.
  • Endorphinated25x - November 7, 2013 7:44 a.m.

    Siiii! Gracias.
  • dark-hector - November 7, 2013 5:34 a.m.

    As a mexican, I can say that would be intresting to see, as a gamer I feel it will be like ac3 again.
  • Endorphinated25x - November 7, 2013 7:52 a.m.

    I could see it being derivative of AC3 but given this is a hypothetical lets say Ubisoft could avoid it. Connor's story was a bit a linear and bit dull at some points. I think if this were to ever happen (I need to stop being hopeful haha) then they could learn from their mistakes. Plus there'd be awesome ruins like AC4 and a lot of Spanish architecture including castles, villas, and cathedrals.
  • Bengrizzly - November 29, 2013 1:25 a.m.

    Should be of he Mexican American war 1846-1848. Assassins are the Mexicans and the Templar the Americans, will educate all on where the actual boarders of Mexico were. Its would also display the Cowboy theme people one with no problems.
  • JustAnotherRogueAI - November 6, 2013 4:13 p.m.

    Early in the game, when you first go to see the director in the modern world, he has a bunch of newsreel type facts about research and surveys conducted by Abstergo appearing on screens behind him. One of those slides says "Cowboys and Ninjas found to be unfavored by consumers. Will Pirates steal the show?"
  • SolidEye - November 6, 2013 3:51 p.m.

    I would love to see a feudal Japan setting since it fits the 'assassins' theme. Especially since we have yet to see ninja portrayed accurately. I also wouldn't mind one set during the 1960's during the Civil Rights Movement. The protagonist can be a Black Panther member who joins the Assassins, with J Edgar Hoover & the FBI being a Templar organization. But before they do anything, they need to seriously improve the 'Assassins' part of the game and not just hash another sequel every year with a different setting. More nimble character movement and flexiblity in gameplay
  • Eightboll812 - November 6, 2013 2:44 p.m.

    I don't even want to ask what the attraction is for AC. But I am curious why the appeal of the "historical settings" discussion. Is it that AC is like a history picturette of something, where you feel like you just played an interactive history channel program? Do you finish and think, wow, I didn't know THAT about the American Revolution!! The appeal of the game in general, aside, I'm not seeing why there is so much anxiety over wanting to see such-n-such era AC. It's not like you are getting anything close to something historical, where there really was an assassin running around killing hundreds of people, so why does it matter that it's set in Munster Germany or Druidic times in England, or whatever. I guess I'm trying to understand why there's no demand for a Middle Earth edition, or AC: A Princess of Mars Edition (John Carter), or any other fantasy realm.
