I really have no idea at all and it hasn't been said or anything but I for some reason think that this is Damascus.

Well we know that Damascus was controlled by Muslims at the time and they do have one screenshot of it I think. I do not know how to put a photo up so if anyone what's to see it let me know how to put a photo up.

I'm pretty sure thats Acre. If you look at the tower in the background you may notice there is a cross on it. Also most people are wearing European clothes and the 3 guards look like crusaders.

I would agree because the guards at the lower right side have on black tunic's which from the videos also wear the white cross which means they are dressed like Hospitaller Knights.

Even if they did that is not Jerusalem. That is either acre or, well not Damascus. What was the other town called?

there is a bit of Damascus in the first dev diary as well. about 2.10 in it. mostly conceptart, but there seems to be a bit in-game-footage also.
