Last month there was hot speculation on the possibility of Assassin’s Creed 5 being located in either Feudal Japan or Ancient Egypt. You may now be either very pleased or disappointed as the Feudal Japan theories have been denied, with Ancient Egypt now the most likely location for the next game.
Jade Raymond who is the Ubisoft Toronto studio head and Assassin’s Creed series producer, has confirmed that the next Assassin’s Creed will not be set in Feudal Japan. It will however be set in her favorite historical era, which conveniently nobody knows. The previous titles have seen adventures in a variety of different time periods and locations, ranging from Caribbean piracy to the American Revolution.
Setting Assassin’s Creed 5 in Ancient Egypt feels like the perfect environment. It would look visually stunning on the PS4 and Xbox One, not to mention how awesome it would be questing through the sands and pyramid tombs. In an interview with Adweek, Raymond said that she would not be giving away any hints about the location so that the surprise was not ruined, only confirming it was not Samurai age Japan.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has been very successful, there is no reason to suggest why the same will not happen for its successor. Where would you like to see Assassin’s Creed 5 set, would Ancient Egypt do it for you?
