If the rumors are true and ubisoft has had a separate team working on AC3 since they finished AC2 then they have already decided on the location. Hopefully that's the case because it would be a shame to rush it in just a year.
[edit]
Oh yea, and for the pole I clicked Egypt, maybe you could assassinate a pharoah.

This kinda may be a spoiler if you havent watched the dvd embers...

in the dvd with the collectors edition, a chinese assassin girl visits ezio when hes retired. Could this be a small hint that the next game maybe set in china back in the day? Tbh i think this would be great. And a departure from the similair look the last four games have had. i know its turkey and italy. but it is quite similair looking. but i think one set in china would be awesome. Especially for the people who think the games are too much of the same with each release, it would be a nice change i think, with some great potential.

Egypt when pharoahs about and that does sound cool, but isn't that too long ago? And maybe too similair to turkey and stuff.

also england in the vicotorian ages or whenever might be good, but i think they may be harder to pull off.

I for one think east asia.

I voted for French Revolution http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Also as possible setting I would like to see :

- Serbia during the First Serbian Uprising (1804.) and fight for freedom against the Ottoman empire and their colonization which lasted for centuries.

- Russion empire (19. century or early 20. century)

- Thirty Years' War beetwen Catholics and Protestants (1618 - 1648)

- Victorian England and Industrial Revolution.


Japan has an intresting tradition but ninjas, shoguns...etc would destroy this game.
Also in feudal Japan there are historical characters who are known all over the world (like : Saladin, Richard the Lionheart, Leonardo da Vinci, Lorenzo de Medici, Borgia family, Suleiman I, Palaiologos family.......etc.
Their historical figures are mostly known only in Japan.
Ancient Rome or Egypy would be intresting but no logic whatwe go back in time.
I think AC3 should take place somewhere in 18-19 century and then after the AC3 and end of Desmons story they can make some prequels and events before AC1.

French Revolution will be the best choice because the time period is great and very popular and it was quite ignored in video games; and let's not forget that Ubisoft is a french company, and the research for the game would be much easier this time around because their biggest studio is in France.

Well now that's being something of a bigot. Egypt has a very rich history from the period of 1500-2012. Napoleon invaded it for instance.

I mean, everybody is entitled to their own opinion, and I don't intend to offend anyone, but seriously, imagination, we has it for a reason. There is no place more overdone than Japan. It's so overdone that even a parody of AC there wouldn't be funny.

From my point of view, AC has always taken advantage of exotic settings. Japan, by no means, can qualify as 'exotic' anymore due to its 'overdone-ness'. No game compnay has ever thought of using the Crusades as a setting, nor the Ottoman Empire.

/end rant

On-topic, I would love a see setting akin to the Industrial Revolution,, or perhaps India during the British Raj. I mean, seriously, the crowded and dirty streets of London during those times reek of social stealth. India during the British Raj would also be a nice tiwst in terms of settings. The architecture is also pretty cool.

My comment is probably too late, because Ubisoft has already started working on the new part of the franchise, but anyways, just want express my thoughts:
1. ACR did a great job of improving the free-run (mad it very fast) by including the hook-blade. I suspect that would return.
2. We have already experienced 4 games of the franchise and became familiar with combat and assassination. It would be a great mistake for the developers to make another AC that has the same gameplay. One of the options is to set it sometime in the 19-20 century, include guns. I am not suggesting developers make a third person shooter! Instead, they should blend the existing mechanic with games like "Splinter Cell" or "Metal Gear Solid". That way the game could retain its charm and gain something new.
I hope ubisoft listens.

Assassins Creed III in the French would be perfect. Here's my take on what the story should be:

http://i.imgur.com/wgpSy.jpg

The game starts out with the ending of Brotherhood, Shaun's monologue about the Phrygian Cap and Masonic Eye. http://i.imgur.com/rHr5u.jpg

The game then takes us back to the beginning of the French Revolution. The Declaration of the Right of Man being declared during the famous Tennis Court Oath. Our hero is a young Templar agent that has planned a revolt against the King of France. The Templars are under the name of The Jacobins; radicalists led by His teacher, Maximillien Robespierre has planned to take over the French monarchy and control the country with Templar power. By bribing people, gathering information, and assassinating people who are in the way as early missions, the Templars assume control through strategic manipulation of the people (destruction of the Bastille, invasion in Versailles)

http://i.imgur.com/U9dKF.jpg

After a few years of control, the Templars have sent the protagonist to Masyaf (now an Assassin stronghold after Ezio's pilgrimage in Revelations.) to overtake the fortress and finally assume control of Altair's hidden weapon in the library. The protagonist then fights his way into the fortress and the weapon inside starts activating. He reaches the library and retrieves the Apple left by Altair which activates and reveals to him his true ancestry and destiny of being an Assassin. http://i.imgur.com/av5ZR.jpg

He returns to France in a state of confusion about the knowledge given to him, he hands the apple to Robespierre who betrays the protagonist and assumes complete control using the apple. The protagonist escapes and comes into contact with the Assassins who are in hiding after the Templars have taken power. The protagonist befriends a young assassin general, Napoleon Bonaparte and plans a revolution against the Jacobins. Recruiting assassins to kill the Jacobins slowly (ex: Marat's assassination by Corday; a young assassin recruit) and By rallying the people to fight back, the Assassins succeed in overthrowing Robespierre and is victorious in regaining the Apple. Napoleon is awed by the power of the apple and decides to take control over France with it, he makes himself Emperor with it's power and allies himself with the Templars who support his desire for power.

http://i.imgur.com/ibSh1.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/nQ1dE.jpg

Years of tracking and fighting, the protagonist finally catches up and defeats his old friend but decides not to kill him as he cannot do so. The apple decides to activate itself to its true master and reveals to him how to unlock the vault under Notre Dame Cathedral (Juno's former temple) which teaches him how to open the Grand Temple. (The main purpose of Desmond viewing his memories.)

I agree with the dudes that are sick and tired of Japan as a possible setting. It's far too overdone in games. America too.

Now that's out of the way, Victorian London is a HUGE opportunity for them. It's not only fit for the gameplay of AC but also it fits nicely with the story.

Second guess would have to be French Revolution for obvious reasons mentioned here already.

For my vote I think anywhere in the Russian backyard would be a great place to have the next Assassins Creed, as would Germany, Switzerland or any of all of their "neighbors," just as they have in the Facebook Uplay game, Project Legacy.

I can easily envision scenes from a Russian winter "fitting like a glove" with the spirit of historical reference that makes the Assassins Creed franchise so successful.

Agreed as well. I have nothing against the people who want Japan/China, but I would prefer an unusual setting to interact with. I (for example) don't know any games that take place during the French Reign of Terror, and feel like that would be a very Assassin's Creed-esque setting for a game.

Egypt could also be fun if Ubisoft is looking for a more exotic touch.

LOL totally agree. Especially the stomping on baby part. Seriously though I will not be happy to see AC in Japan. I seriously doubt it will be in Revolutionary France or England because Ubisoft likes to keep us totally in the dark but I would be happy with either one of those (especially France). That would be perfect for an AC game.

as far as Egypt goes I actually would prefer a more recent time in Egyptian history than an ancient one simply because it's important to me that the setting be recreated as perfectly and accurately as possible and that goes for the characters as well and I realize they need to take certain liberties but the problem with any ancient setting is just how little we actually know about them. We know a lot about what Florence looks like because A: There is still a lot of it left even from 500 years ago and B: Machiavelli wrote books on what it looked like among other references we have about it. But when it comes to ancient settings we typically know very little and have to hypothesize a lot or just have very little to go on therefore making it difficult to recreate with any real accuracy.

An random idea could be, an important thing the templars wanted to find in the city of Magedburg, during the thirty years war. They burned the city down and found what they searched for. and some templars took this to the new world and the new protagonist in AC3 follows to the new world. Mexico or to the english colonies.

I know jsut a stupid random idea.

Anyway and anyhow, i dont think Ac3 will take place during the French or the Americna revolution.

And i dont hope for China or Japan!

I think an AC set during WW1 would be interesting. Since it was all due to allegiances ETC., I wouldn't be suprised if the templars were behind it in canon, and it means there would be a more AC1 style of gameplay- tracking down people keeping the war going and killing them off.

That said, I think the series should stay away from trench warfare, and stick with acting in, lets say, Germany and Briton to kill templar generals and politicians, as well as America to kill those who were keeping America out of the war.

Gameplay wise, there could be two classes of guns- long guns and pistols. Pistols would work a lot like the crossbow or hidden gun in ACR, while long guns would be a little more complicated. It would work like AC2's hidden gun (A guaranteed kill no matter what), and have longer range (possibly by extending the lockon range). However, if you have one in your inventory, it will be similar to having full notoriety in AC2- police and soldiers on leave (very similar to ACR's Janissaries) would attack you on sight. The gameplay for enemy weapons have already been experimented with in ACR, so they just need a little tweaking.
