    Mind blown! Ubisoft gave us Unity, Victory and AC VII locations back in 2013!!

    First of all, I’ll start by saying this is not some crazy conspiracy theory that I made up, but speculation based on true facts, as you’re about to see. If I am correct, Ubisoft gave us the key to figure out the next 3 AC locations back in 2013, when Black Flag was released. If this information has already been uncovered, please excuse me because I had no idea. For now, let me explain.

    Last November, I bought
    Assassin's Creed Unity: The Complete Official Guide from Piggyback, as I do every year (I have all the guides and art books, they are awesome). I read the whole thing, enjoyed the artwork and all the info, and that was it. But a couple of days ago, as I was checking some facts again, a particular piece of artwork caught my attention like it didn’t before. For a moment I had a weird feeling. I looked a it again, this time in detail. I couldn’t believe my eyes, I thought it couldn’t be real. But no, It was there and was VERY real.


    So I go back to Black Flag’s official guide from last year, and oh my God! There it was, near the end. And I check The Art of Assassin’s Creed IV: Flag Flag”, and again, it was there in full page, in all its glory, with none of us suspecting anything! Hell, you can even find it in
    the Abstergo Entertainment: Employee Handbook (that I also own). Right in front of us the whole time, but no one though anything of it (not even me). So what does it show? Keep reading.

    The piece I’m talking about, drawn by Ubisoft artist Martin Deschambault, shows one possible Abstergo Entertainment lobby area for the present day part, different from the one seen in the final game. It’s gorgeous. There are some Abstergo employees walking around, a fountain and one information desk, but the really interesting part is the huge flat screen that is behind the desk. This screen shows several historical places and landmarks from all over the world (6, to be exact). Some are clear references from previous games, but others… refer to future locations. Let’s take a look.


    The first one is very small and not very clear. It looks like the front of a church. I’d like to think it’s a reference to the very first Assassins Creed, but it’s hard to say:




    No doubt in the second one. It shows Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, a clear reference to Assassins Creed II and the Ezio saga:




    The next one shows a tropical island, which can only refer to AC IV Black Flag:


    And now is when things get really interesting. You should recognize the fourth one, which is… that right, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris! Way before Unity was leaked by Kotaku.




    But wait there’s more. The next one shows… The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben in London!! Like in Victory, as you already know thanks to Kotaku’s leak. Yeah!



    In the last one, the screen shows another location which has not been touch in any AC yet, and which (considering all the above) should be AC VII location. Where are we going? It’s Japan!! Which makes sense, considering people have been asking for it for a long time. The image clearly shows a Japanese temple surrounded by houses. I’m not sure, but I’d say it’s Sensoji Temple, Tokyo's oldest temple and one of its most significant.



    Finally, let’s take a look at the whole picture.



    What do you think? Am I crazy or what?

    OMG, I think you have it! Amazing find.

    But uh...kinda shows the lack of creativity right? Just ticking the most requested settings off a checklist. Also disappointed there's no Ancient setting, maybe after Japan - which I will be VERY excited about if revealed to be true.

    Not to put a damper on this revelation, might not be true bu sure seems likely. Well done, sir!

    No, it doesn't. If they choose their own setting, people will flame them for lacking creativity. If they choose an absurd setting, people will still flame them for lacking creativity. The developers can't win.

    They won when they picked the Renaissance, a fascinating but slightly lesser known period among the general public.

    Could it be China? I hope not, but could it be referencing AC Chronicles: China?

    I would love it to be Japan but they have been so negative on that setting and I would think that if they did do that setting they would wait until they have mastered the next-gen engine.

    But great find!!

    Das tru, but it was before this the whole AC historical expl concept was a thing. Now people r throwing all these settings that they may or may not have already been considered. Like the Golden Age of Piracy, for example. They were working on Black Flag long before AC3 was announced, and now people r saying they just made Black Flag because this and that.

    Wow, nice find! Japan 2016 confirmed.

    I don't know much about the difference between Japanese and Chinese architecture, but is it possible the temple could have been a reference to the Shao Jun game instead of Japan?

    I think that might be China, it reminds me of the Forbidden city architecture.

    Could be a hint towards the 2016 game, but could also be a hint to the Chronicles spin-off, as a side note I said once that I think Chronicles will serve as an appetizer for a proper China game in the near future.
