With Ubisoft pretty much confirming that they are already working on Assassin’s Creed 5, players who have grown tired of the current game have now been looking to the future. While Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has proved highly popular, it goes without saying that a new setting is needed, and there are some great ideas being thrown about.
We recently looked at the possibility of two AC5 settings, Feudal Japan vs. Ancient Egypt, with one being more likely than the other because of some inside information. However, it is very clear that fans of the franchise have other ideas, and Product Reviews readers also have a diverse imagination.
Assassin’s Creed 5 location rumors — We have a handful of settings for you, although we have to stress that most of these are highly improbable, which you will understand fully once we mention them.
A Cold War period for AC5 has come up several times before, but I’m not sure people will want to visit a period in time that is so close to ours? The Call of Duty franchise and so many other games have already tackled the troubles with USA, Germany and Russia during the Cold War. It’s just not as interesting as it once was.
Assassin’s Creed 5 during World War 2 is another suggestion, and again we feel as if this time period has been done to death. However, Ubisoft might be able to find a way to make it more exciting.
Ubosoft has already tackled America when it was fighting for its independence, so how about fast-forwarding a few years to the time when they were going through a Civil War? It would be a natural progressing and with a lot of knowledge and interest in this troubling time one has to wonder if they would like to see a game that would tackle these controversial issues?
With Feudal Japan and Ancient Egypt being at the top of most peoples list, the thought of Assassin’s Creed V being set in the time of King Arthur does fill us with excitement. This could be a natural time period for and assassin, and we could get to see a completely different side of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
If you could choose any setting for the next Assassin’s Creed game, what would it be and why?
