With Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag having done so well and with Ubisoft announcing that they are to make this a yearly release, it’s rather obvious that attention has already turned to the next installment. Ubisoft knows that they need to deliver and so have been asking fans for input, and we can already see that the setting topic has gained more traction because of this.
Three of the questions asked was if fans would like to play as a new assassin and if they would prefer a different time period, and if they would prefer more famous historical characters?
The thing with Assassin’s Creed games is the possibilities are endless and so will generate a huge response, and no doubt many fans of the franchise will agree to certain time periods more than others.
One setting that keeps popping up time and again is Egypt, as the history is so rich, dates back further than all previous Assassin’s Creed settings and more importantly, is filled with some historic characters.
Egypt would be a perfect setting for Assassin’s Creed 5, but Ubisoft will have to work even harder than they did with the previous 2 installments of the game because it is much harder to go back so far in our history and get the details as accurate.
There are some other great settings and time periods, but many of us seem to have this love affair with ancient Egypt, one that is begging to be explored, and the Animus device is something that can do this.
Where would you like Ubisoft to go with Assassin’s creed 5?
