    The ninja were the ultimate assassins, hiding in the shadows and taking out their targets from a distance but could also get up close and personal. Using a variety of weapons and techniques....This could be if done properly the ultimate assassin!...They pretty much use a lot of the weapons anyway e.g smoke bombs, swords, throwing knives etc...

    I think the next AC should be set in Malay archipelago in the early 1500s where Malacca or known as "the Venice of the East" at that time is at their highest achivements then the Portugese attack Malacca & conquer it.

    I'm 90% certain that the next game will be set in Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution. Readers of the comic series Assassin's Creed: The Fall will likely already know of the Assassin Nicolai Orelov, whose modern day counterpart happens to be (surprise!) Daniel Cross from AC3. Plus, the frequent recurring Romanov symbols in AC3 also provide evidence. In truth, though, Ubi has a long list of possible locales to stage the next AC in, but Russia just seems the most likely (to me, at least).

    They won't do it in Wild West, because RDR was set there and it pretty much was exactly AC in Wild West. I see any other interesting eras after AC3, I'd personally go back in time to Egypt. Oh and make female lead finally please... If she's gonna be same boring as Connor person-wise, at least make her good to look at.

    Ireland during the famine :D or WW2! i know its a bit cliche but fans complain about the lack of stealth in AC so if your enemies are equipped with fully automatic guns there'd be no use taking them head on so stealth would be key! and imagine leaps of faith off the Eiffel tower,the arc de triumph and Notre Dame in Paris alone! the main character could even be a french resistance fighter or even someone who escaped a concentration camp! assassinations could include Rommel and Goebbels! a tower defense mission in pavlovs house with the red army would be awesome too! :D I'd be excited for a game like that.. (I know pavlovs house was in a COD before)

    i have my own opinion what about japan??u all know right that japan have a ninja n ninja was always be connected to assassination,sabotage,poison,scouting n do anything in silent like a shadow.. also all weapon that ninja have it i thinks its amazing n will make the game really interesting n good to be played.. AC4 hero to be a ninja master with a hidden blade + short katana + poison + shuriken + graple hook and anything about ninja it would be great :D sorry for my poor english and also i'm an asian and thats only my opinion
  • danny-phillips - December 19, 2013 12:41 p.m.

    totally agree, he could be the ultimate assassin, maybe with some skills of the samurai...a hybrid assassin...

    In my opinion, Assassin's Creed 4 should be set in China, and you should be able to play as Shao Jun from Embers. That way people will be able to get a female Assassin with some personality and backstory. The only problem would be that they'd have to backtrack a little; no more muskets, flintlock pistols, and tomahawks. The rope dart could probably be there, considering that Shao Jun herself created it. Who knows? They could actually connect Shao Jun's story to what's happening in modern-day AC right now (Juno being released, ready to enslave humanity) with Shao's descendant (unrelated to Desmond) is reliving her memories since at some point, Shao probably found a weapon that has the power to kill a First Civilization member. Or, they could let it be set in modern-day 2013/2014 (or in the future) with you playing as a newly-inducted young member of the Assassins (and with Character Customization). The CC should be Mass Effect style, with you being able to customize the character's looks, name, backstory, and psyche. It would have your character rise up the ranks in an effort to stop Juno, while still being open-world and retaining some elements of older games. Plus, if it were set in the future, your Assassin could get some cool new weapons and gadgets (like magnetic gloves that allow you to climb on any surface Spiderman-style, Predator-style cloaking devices to help in stealth missions.) They could even have a Batman-style cape/glider that would allow you to fly around the city Arkham City-style. Though I'd want it to also be released on PS3 and Xbox, not just on the PS4 and 720. I'm not that type who buys new consoles on its release date/year of release. I prefer to wait 2-3 years, and I wouldn't want to buy a new console just to play AC4. Anyway, my first comment has taken long enough.

    How about not another Asssasin's Creed game? Geez
  • zemc77 - February 9, 2013 2:27 p.m.

    I agree with most of this except for the Old West and Future settings thing. ACIII adapted well to the existence of firearms because soldiers could only shoot once a century and the rest of the time they used the bayonets on their muskets. It was still pretty much hand-to-hand combat. But in the Old West nobody carried bayonets or swords; they all carried firearms. It would turn the game into another Third-person shooter. The same applies for modern settings. I vote for the China setting.

    sorry but i dont agree with know its an assassins/action game not TPS game..if ac4 a full of fire arm then where is the real assassins game???and it would be making me laugh to play ac4 like playing GTA -_-
  • Voodoowolfe - February 10, 2013 9:02 a.m.

    I agree with you sir. Old West just sounded dumb. And the future? AC's future is always in the past(damn that sounded good). China sounds awesome! Throw in some Shaolin monks and we are rocking. I'll just throw it out there, Japan. Right around the time of their "Westernizing". Blend in a bit of samurai and some new stuff. Think "Last Samurai" only without Tom Cruise. And let the hero be a ninja who can pick to either stick with the "old ways" or get modernized.
  • descuffphoenix - February 9, 2013 6:19 a.m.

    The next AC should be in: China, civil war, future or old west.
  • FOZ - February 8, 2013 9:39 p.m.

    They aren't assassins for hire, they're "Assassins." You can't pay them and they'll kill somebody, they're just an organization called "The Assassins" who happen to be good at jumping across rooftops and stabbing. Aside from semantics, definitely needs to be a bigger emphasis on assassination. How many people did you assassinate in the entirety of Brotherhood? 3? Whereas ACII had that sequence where you assassinate a bunch of dudes around San Gimignano and each one was its own challenge. More of that, leading up to a bigger assassination.
  • Voodoowolfe - February 10, 2013 9:05 a.m.

    In Brotherhood your body count shouldn't be any less than 40,000. All you did was kill, but kill with purpose. I haven't played ACIII, so I have no idea.
  • archnite - February 8, 2013 6:51 p.m.

    I'd like to see AssCreed 4 become what the first was originally said to be, a real open world game where you planned the assassinations and didn't just play through GTA style missions with swords instead of guns.
  • Z-man427 - February 8, 2013 5:17 p.m.

    I very much doubt they'll do Japan or China or the Old West or London or France. All of those are expected. Ubisoft has said many times that they try to pick eras that really haven't been covered in games. We've had plenty of ninja/samurai games and RDR did the Old West so well that I doubt they'd try to top it. And these have all been bandied by fans since the end of AC1. I like the idea of Colonial India, just for the aesthetic and the possibility of riding an elephant. Really though, I'd like to see them go with a really awesome female protagonist. Like FemShep from Mass Effect, but an Assassin. They were on the right track with Aveline in Liberation, but she (and everyone else in the game) lacked personality a bit. Also make the story more focused. A less is more kind of thing.
  • codystovall - February 8, 2013 5:04 p.m.

    Better combat aside from assassinations, and more freedom/creativity in assassinations It should take place in Japan(feudal or edo period) and china and you be a ninja Or in victorian london While the modern takes places in the near future.
  • eprinsen - February 8, 2013 9:24 a.m.

    colonial africa is an option
  • Fetalspray - February 8, 2013 9:01 a.m.

    Victorian England, Feudal Japan, China, Colonial India, Ancient Rome, Greece or Egypt, Revolutionary France, 1800's Australia (like old west just less obvious) or the wild card... Viking.
