The Assassin’s Creed franchise likes to have a new setting for every outing, covering different parts of history. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is the latest title and takes place during the era of pirates, but what is next? Rumors suggest that feudal Japan could be the next setting for Assassin’s Creed V, but sadly those rumors have turned out to be false.
Ubisoft Toronto executive, Jade Raymond, killed those rumors dead during an interview with Adweek.
“The fifth installment will feature her favorite historical era, Raymond says, but she can’t even give a hint of what that is because it would ruin the surprise. She did dispel the rumor that it is set at the end of the samurai age in Japan. That said, she thinks that would be a cool idea.” Raymond added, “When we’re building a franchise, we’re thinking of a whole universe and how we’re developing a meta-story that could live on for many years in games and TV. If the story has nowhere to go, then you end up with the video game equivalent of The Matrix 2 or something where it’s never going to be quite as genius.”
Colonial India is one of the popular rumors still floating around. Feudal Japan would have been really nice. So, what era will they be setting it in? We will have to wait and see.
