Speaking with Adweek Ubisoft Toronto Managing Director Jade Raymond revealed that the next Assassin’s Creed game would take place in her favourite historical era. She didn’t divulge what that era is, but did say that the next game will not take place in feudal Japan, at the end of the samurai age.
In 2011 Ubisoft polled fans to determine which historical era was most anticipated. Among the choices were feudal Japan, Ancient Egypt, Victorian England, Ancient Rome and the Colonial United States. Assassin’s Creed III would eventually take place during the latter. Anticipation for feudal Japan has been strong for years and can be seen in a recent post on Ubisoft Australia’s Facebook Page. Other eras requested by fans in the post include Ancient Egypt, the Viking age and even colonial Australia.
Despite fans wishing to see feudal Japan in an Assassin’s Creed game, Creative Director on the series Alex Hutchison told OXM in 2012, “The three most wanted are WWII, feudal Japan and Egypt. They’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.”
In her interview with Adweek Raymond re-confirmed Watch Dogs release this Autumn.
