    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...

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
  • GamesRadarMikelReparaz - November 6, 2013 3:41 p.m.

    I guess it carries the same appeal that any historical fiction does; it's a chance to be a tourist in re-creations of interesting times and places, seeing real people and events rendered in a relatable (if not completely accurate) way. It's also interactive and filled with conspiracies and murder, which makes the educational aspects go down easier -- and there are plenty of those, whatever you think of the series' approach to realism or historical accuracy. Playing Assassin's Creed II, for example, actually gave me rudimentary understandings of Renaissance-era politics, culture, and architecture that dry school lectures never did. Not many other series do anything even remotely like this, and that's part of AC's charm. The action's an important part of the formula, but less important than the setting and story. An AC set in Middle-earth simply wouldn't be an AC.
  • Eightboll812 - November 6, 2013 8:15 p.m.

    I appreciate the explanation because not having played any of the games, and not being very interested in the genre of game, I am curious but not enough to go buy and play through any of the games. If you can indulge a follow up question, how do you know the politics are being accurately portrayed if there's a lot of licenses being taken. I personally find the hybrid type media (e.g. docu-dramas) to almost be more misleading than useful for learning about a subject because I constantly wonder which part is real and which part is being sensationalized for dramatic effect to keep me entertained. As an example, the movie Argo, I had to go home and google various "facts" to see what was real and what wasn't. You could say, at least the movie peaked my interest, but it does bother me that I might be filing away a piece of history in my brain that is factually incorrect just for the sake of Ben Affleck deciding I needed to be entertained as opposed to getting the story correct. I'm sort of type A, like that. It just bugs me.
  • CrackBabySPORTS - November 25, 2013 6:17 a.m.

    Not to sound like an ass, but I think you're completely missing the point of media entertainment. It's entertainment, in case you missed something there.
  • Eightboll812 - November 25, 2013 8:22 a.m.

    On the contrary, I'm not the one missing this point. To me games that are not categorized as educational, are simply entertainment. I'm responding to the guy who's saying he's learning educational stuff about a historical era, and asking how they know it's not just fictional entertainment like the rest of the game.

    About japanese setting i have an idea. How about AC game taking place during late years of Sengoku era and beginning of Tokugawa shogunatte. In 1532 or 1534 Portuguese first landed in Kyushu island of japan through Goa and Macao. And obviously at that time Portugal was part of Spanish empire but to keep spanish hand away from japanese Portuguese came to term with Jesuits. Community of Jesus?. Spanish to control japan over portugal sent Franciscan order there. In 1600 April first European other than Portuguese and Spanish, William adams english pilot of dutch ship Erasmus A.K.A Hoop landed on japanese shore. But how about William Adams is actually assassin sent to Japan. So that Assassins could keep Templars(portuguese and spanish) away from influencing and helping opposing force Tokugawa Ieyasu from winning war and becoming shogun establishing 250 years lasted Shogunatte. I must also say there is 3 relics of Japanese Emperor. Seems public never seen these 3 relics. Mirror, Jewel, Sword. What if these relics have something to do with these eden thing?(whatever these golden apples etc was) and Templars are trying to get them. But they are kept in Emperor castle in Kyoto. To reach and get them they need access to Kyoto. To reach Kyoto they need first get rid of opposers(thus who is against foreigners influencing) and establish someone as shogun etc bla bla. In game major characters deaths are always tied to historical accuracy. So William Adams comes to japan knows templar plan. Helps Tokugawa ieyasu assassinating his enemy. then goes on until in 1615 William Adams known to japanese Anjin Miura kills lord of Osaka.

    Why is England not on this list? It's on Abstergo's list....
  • Evanesco - November 6, 2013 12:54 p.m.

    Nevermind. I just want it so bad I thought it was.
