    Ok bare with me, I'm a history academic and the assassins creed games cause me to geek out. The Mongol Expansion would be a amazing campaign. Also Samurai Japan. The Vietnam war would be a amazing change of pace/gameplay. I also like the expansion of Islam (possible the turning point in France), the American Civil War, a religious theme with the Reformation of 1517, The rise and/or fall of the Russian Czars, The seven years war, and finally the opium wars in China.

    Ancient Egypt would be amazing

    Germany, Iraq, Spain and Cuba all sound pretty good to me. I'd rather see Cuba circa 1953 though and follow the revolution there (although that would come with the gun problem). Likewise Moscow circa 1903 would be interesting. Basically anything that has a revolution or a significant cultural change as it's a perfect breeding ground for an AC story. Prague is by far my favourite option from this list though. On cool architecture alone I'd be totally up for it, let alone all the rest. But even though it's one of the expected ones, I'm still hoping for Victorian London. It has all the staples - important historical figures (Queen Victoria herself was the victim of a few assassination attempts), power and class struggles, conspiracies, the world's "first" serial killer (and real life Templar theories tied to it), and above all else, an interesting city. I don't care if it's obvious. I would love it.

    I'd still love to see Revolutionary Paris, because it's one of those romanticized events that the series loves so much. Or, failing that, take the series way back to either the time of Alexander the Great (who was a Templar in series lore) or Ancient Rome, as the series' writers have already worked in Caligula and Caesar into series canon. Think about it: with the sailing mechanics and power of next-gen, we could have a fully explorable Mediterranean, complete with epic historical ports like Alexandria, Athens, Carthage or Halicarnassus. That way you can retain the awesome sailing but without the fear of pirates and that 17th to 19th century time period becoming stale. Come on, tell me you wouldn't want to climb the great Lighthouse of Alexandria and gaze out over the city.

    I'd like smaller episodes with the various Assassin orders around the world. We know they're out there, I wonder how much work it would take to make a small section of a city, like how chunks open up as the story goes along, instead of doing a whole big city. There must be places where there are only a few assassinations that need to be done over their history, instead of a bunch of important things all happening in the same place at the same time. Then we could see a lot of interesting places in a short time.

    Japan and samurai shit would be nice. Thats it

    This.

    The director of ACIV said he's very interested in taking the series to Ancient Egypt. Also, I remember someone at Ubisoft saying they probably won't do anything more modern than the ACIII, because of modern guns being a problem.

    I've seen some awesome fanart rescently on deviantart for AC titles set in Korea at the beginning of WWII (the Japanese invasion), and in New York during the mid-1900's gangster era

    How about India? You've got a culture and history that is, foreign to the majority of Americans and I'd imagine Europeans, plenty of time periods like Akbar's rule, or the British colonization. Hell on top of that, you've got some awesome looking historical weapons and India is pretty damn important to the modern world.
  • KidKatana - October 25, 2013 2:29 a.m.

    I really hope that at some point they do an AC set in India during the British Raj. The weaponry would be right for the series and the potential settings are just incredible. Calcutta and Varanasi would be perfect for AC's gameplay, and Rajasthan has so many awesome castles and forts that you could set a whole spinoff game there. There could also be a really interesting story dynamic, considering the love-hate relationship between Britain and India.
  • Doctalen - October 25, 2013 8:04 a.m.

    Hell yeah! Though admittedly I'm still hoping for something earlier :p but I suppose the British Raj would make more sense as a setting in the AC universe with the Templars and Assassins being European.

    Or what about during the construction of the Taj Malah, a massive tomb for a wife sounds like a perfect opportunity for a place to hide a piece of Eden
  • StrayGator - October 24, 2013 4:26 p.m.

    All sound like great premises, but wasn't it already established that the next AC will follow the exploits on one Haytham Kenway around the mid-18th century? Also, I don't think Baghdad can be ascribed to Persia. It was built as a capital to one of the caliphates, which probably means that the persian empire wasn't around by then.

    Anyone else see the amazing AC: China fan art? Seriously, check it out on Google its the hypest shit!
  • BladedFalcon - October 24, 2013 4:09 p.m.

    Mikel! Of course it had to be you! None other could write an article about obscure history AND Assasin's Creed at the same time! :P Anyway, these are pretty fantastic ideas! I specially love the Prague one, never been there myself yet, but parents have, and they do agree it's a beautiful, super interesting city. That, and the whole Second Defenestration thing and the conflict that ensued sounds like it would play out great for a game like this. ...Unfortunately, I kinda fear Ubisoft would never risk going that obscure. Consider that all of the settings and historical events they've followed so far are VERY prominent, or at least, highly romanticized. Most people, even if they aren't interested in history, are in one way or another familiar with the crusades, the renaissance, the North American Independence, and the era of Piracy that happened in the Caribbean. As interesting as it might be, something like the Second Defenestration of Prague and the Thirty Year war is pretty much unknown in the consciousness of the mainstream. SPECIALLY your common North American citizen. Which seems to be a big part of the demographic this series targets.

    Hey! We've had a lot of history here in the States, too! Of which most of us are pretty ignorant, too. So we'll be lost no matter where or when you want to place the game.

    "And that’s awesome! Let us--and more importantly, everyone else--know about it in the comments below. " Your use of sarcasm pleases me.
