    Yeah, jumpin' on the bandwagon here: I want an Assassin's Creed set in Asia. Alas, I should at least play Assassin's Creed III--or even beat Revelations. As for Far Cry 4, I don't know... Ubisoft is notorious for milking their franchises. I absolutely LOVED Far Cry 3, so seeing another that could potentially root (or push back) such an awesome series would be sad. Unless, of course, it's more of the same but with more to do. As much as I loved the game, it couldn't coax another play-through from me.

    Yeah, an AC story set in asia would be stellar...but please no ninjas. AC can't have ninjas, even though they are cool and basically do the same thing. It would have such a different feel.

    um, what? so you wan't a game about an order of highly trained, stealth tactics using killers set in asia (yeah asia is pretty big but we're really talking about feudal japan here, right?), but people aren't allowed to call them ninjas? what about calling them shinobi then? WHY THE HELL should one set a story in a specific PERIOD and on a specific continent IN A SPECIFIC COUNTRY, and then IGNORE THAT SPECIFIC CULTURE?!?!?! sorry, don't get it, sounds pretty dumb to me...

    Assassin's Creed 4 vs. WatchDogs? Does the news about an impending Assassin's Creed game, most likely releasing between October and November of 2013, mean Watchdogs will be released sometime in 2014 or later? I was working under a theory that Watchdogs would be a Launch title for the Playstion 4 and X-box 720. I also believe that the next generation consoles will be released at the end of 2013 around the holidays. Assassin's Creed Console Titles dating all the way back to the first game have been released in Fall, around November. Except the most recent, being Assassins Creed III having been released in October. It is unlikely that Ubisoft will break from this Fall tradition. Especially seeing as it could be the first such tradition of a new console generation. So where do you think that leaves Watchdogs? It is unlikely that Ubisoft will release Watchdogs and what I am guessing is Assassin's Creed 4 both at launch. Seeing how they would be in direct competition with of each other. And it will pit an Promising new IP against a well established franchise. Now me personally I will buy both if this unlikely scenario occurs. But what about you? Now that an official statement has been made about the next Assassin's Creed Game, when do you think Watchdogs will be released? Will it be pushed back to 2014? Will they be released side by side at the next gen launch? Will Ubisoft break from their tradition and release the next Assassin's Creed title early in 2014? Let me know what you think.

    I want to say that watchdogs will get pushed back, seeing as how they announced it ahead of AC4 and it's a new IP, so they can get away with the excuse that they're tweaking it. They're not like Rockstar where they delay their heavy hitting franchise, at least not as I can remember. I don't remember any of the AC games getting delayed either, so correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think they're going to deviate from that habit. And if they release a next gen AC they'd probably like to make it a launch title for the next gen consoles, rather than take a gamble on a new IP that the general masses probably aren't as familiar with. Everyone knows AC (especially with those commercials), but watchdogs is better known to the hardcore gamer community. And if i'm right about this I will be fairly disappointed because Watchdogs looked pretty awesome in that bit they showed us.

    Seriously Ubisoft, give AC a rest will you. You have successfully bled one of my favourite series dry, just bloody stop it. Give it a good few years, and work on a new instalment which will completely blow our minds like AC2 did. Also, don't do the same with Far Cry, the frequency of new FC games is just about right at the moment.

    AC3 has already sold 12 million copies. They will stop annual releases when people stop buying them. If you don't like it, don't buy. Simple!

    That chinese assassin art was badass, and I literally was a bit shocked at the space suit assassin. But please, no western. And PLEASE, take it back to actual assassinations as the dominant focus of the game. I can only remember 2 missions from AC3 where you had a genuine target that you got to approach like you do in practically every AC2 assassination.
