You can't pick more than one choice? Oooo, it's hard decision time. So for me, it's either England or Russia. My vote for Russia.

(although the thought of going back to Rome again does appeal to me as well.)

I don't get what you mean by British colonists and Native Americans. Did you mean British military versus Revolutionaries? If so, it should have said, The American Revolutionaries fight for freedom.

Assuming AC 3 involves the French Revolution, my first preference, then Victorian England would be my choice off this list. Foggy London would make an awesome environment.

I would be happy with any result. Although I believe the most fitting thing would be to go back in time. Preferably to a time when the Knights Templar's predecessors are in action, which will allow more plot twists and possibly even a new trilogy.

Here's my problems with the suggestions so far:
1. Victorian Era England - this is too bland a destination. It won't work for an Assassins game.
2. Feudal Japan - as previously mentioned this era has been covered by other games and therefore does not need an AC game.
3. Medieval China (what time period are we even talking about?)
4. Russian-Revolution - why would there be Assassins in this period?
5. Spanish Conquest of the Americas - this could work, but you'd have difficulty.

Well, Italian Renaissance sounds a bit bland as well... Medieval China is obviously China during the Middle Ages... As for Russia, what about Orelov from 'The Fall'?

Come on mate. I live in London, and let me tell you, it's everything but bland. I know it wasn't bland in the Victorian era as well. Watch Sherlock Holmes with Robert D. Junior. That takes place in Victorian London, and the setting is brilliant! Take a look at some posters for the newest Holmes movie "A game of Shadows", they're not at all bland.

I understand your desire to have a game about the place you live in but the other guy is right.

First of all, everyone mentions Holmes. Why? All books about Holmes and Holmes himself is a work of fiction. Assassin's Creed franchise uses characters based on real people. I'd rather use Dikens books than Doyle's as a setting reference, at least he wrote about real problems, like the state of the poor people of London of that time.

Besides Holmes there's nothing appealing to Victorian England and London especially. First of all, it's too close to home for both Europeans and US (the main AC auditory) - British culture is known in and out to most of the world through its colonies' legacy, with all its flaws and glory. So there's nothing interesting or new for most of the AC gamers to reveal for themselves.
People want to see new places and rich foreign cultures. Personally, I'm sick and tired of European setting, a change of scenery would be nice, far East maybe. Like colonial India, for example. Or that China option would be quite good: it would provide continuation to the Embers plot, it's quite foreign and China's history and culture is quite grand and rich. Also it's a huge country and there was always something going on there that could become a good setting for AC game - wars, court intrigues, royal assassination attempts, you name it. If you want setting reference watch "Hero" movie, for example. I'm not even mentioning their grand architecture which always has a huge presence in AC games.

Talk about "yet another ninja game" is also stupid as the AC game can be made in all sorts of directions, not necessarily about ninjas at all, and besides, there actually aren't many true "ninja" games. More stupid would be assassin's costume in any form in Victorian London.

London itself would be too moody a setting for a game. Look at Uncharted 3 - first part of the game was set in London with its slummy back alleys, bland brick buildings and dark, dank underground system. Many people couldn't get past that part fast enough and there were complaints that places set in Europe took away some of the Uncharted franchise's appeal, as its main charm is exploring the uncharted foreign places.
Victorian London is an ugly mass of huge slums, rapidly expanding dirty docks and gray mass of buildings, most of which were unappealing to the eye. Not to mention the fog.
And lastly there's no interesting conflict to grab on to in that era. The war with Napoleon was over, England mainly continued to expand its colonies and was busy with usual internal politics. The only thing of interest there is huge masses of poor people, famine, cholera epidemic and Jack the Ripper. So what work is there for and assassin?

Lol how? The Renaissance (for anyone who knows it) was the greatest time of cultural change ever (as we've seen with the AC2 - B), but I'm not gonna argue or anything, I'm just saying anyone who knows about the Renaissance couldn't think it bland. I'd never even heard of it until AC2 and before then, I only read the title on Wikipedia and thought it sounded interesting.


I like everything except Caesar's Conquest in Rome would be stupid IMO. Ubisoft would get massacred for re-doing Rome, even if it is in a different time period, the only difference will be no ruins and more fully built landmarks.

Personally, out of this list, Egypt seems the most exciting!

At least so soon after ACB yes. Maybe after a couple more releases, people would miss it & want to be back there again in another era.
I think it's just too soon and esp. after we just ended Ezio's trilogy.

I was trying to be ironic, but should'have elaborated more. Personally I think the Renaissance was great as well, but an average person could consider it as a period mimicking antiquity or simply ignore the Borgia's intrigues or the Medicis as they might not be covered in schools' programs and such.

People want to see new places and rich foreign cultures.

I think England in the Victorian era would be VERY new to all of us since none of us have ever experienced that time period. It's not all just the area, it's also the people & customs of the era.
Anything Victorian is just kool - SO much could be done with it.

Also, I think it's a positive point that someone from England wants a game done from their own land -
me being American, I really don't want one done in America, I'm alot more interested in places elsewhere on the map.

I know Marie Antoinette's story isn't in the victorian era (think it's the French revolution or something?) - but that type of vibe is what I like, any game with that in it would be fine with me.

It seems you have NO idea what you're talking about. I mentioned Holmes so he could look at the scenery for God's sake. Did you even read what I wrote? I don't want it in Victorian London because I live here, but because it's not bland. Do you even know what it looks like? It's not bland. Not all the buildings look the same. There are much, MUCH worse places to have an AC game. Like *cough* Asia *cough*. It wasn't all a "mass of slums" like you said. The fog is cool, and even the slums are! The Assassin could be somebody who lived in the slums. You say Victorian London is too "moody". That's the whole bloody point. The mood fits. Every place in the world has it's own mood, and mood of Victorian London would fit AC perfectly.

They obviously know what they're doing; look at Shaun Hastings, they really chose the right guy to voice him. Um, the voice actor was obviously not English, foreigners always make the English accent too strong (not their fault, it's hard to do any accent just right) I wish foreign studios would just hire english people, otherwise we'll end up with a bunch of stereotypes. Shaun made all English people look like annoying ******. So people from around the world, expect stereotypes, BIG stereotypes </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Maybe in your mind. It would still be too moody to make a whole game in this "palette". It doesn't work for prolonged time.
And the assassin would live in the slums and..do what? Assassinate some gentry? I ask again - what work is there for an assassin in Victorian era? And what famous people except for Edison, Bell, a bunch of writers and the queen are there to make an interesting cast of characters? What events of note are there to make a decent plot for AC?
AC1 had Crusades and many famous people like king Richard, Robert de Sable, Al Mualim etc.
AC2 had Renaissance in all its glory - a time with plenty of conflicts and political intrigue. And tons of famous people like the Pope of Rome, Borgias, Machiavelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Suleiman the Magnificent etc.
Compared to those carefully chosen times and places Victorian era seems quite pale in comparison.
And besides, Victorian era is almost too modern to be interesting, especially considering that there's modern times' Desmond's plot going on already.

I understand your desire to have a game about the place you live in but the other guy is right.

First of all, everyone mentions Holmes. Why? All books about Holmes and Holmes himself is a work of fiction. Assassin's Creed franchise uses characters based on real people. I'd rather use Dikens books than Doyle's as a setting reference, at least he wrote about real problems, like the state of the poor people of London of that time.

Besides Holmes there's nothing appealing to Victorian England and London especially. First of all, it's too close to home for both Europeans and US (the main AC auditory) - British culture is known in and out to most of the world through its colonies' legacy, with all its flaws and glory. So there's nothing interesting or new for most of the AC gamers to reveal for themselves.
People want to see new places and rich foreign cultures. Personally, I'm sick and tired of European setting, a change of scenery would be nice, far East maybe. Like colonial India, for example. Or that China option would be quite good: it would provide continuation to the Embers plot, it's quite foreign and China's history and culture is quite grand and rich. Also it's a huge country and there was always something going on there that could become a good setting for AC game - wars, court intrigues, royal assassination attempts, you name it. If you want setting reference watch "Hero" movie, for example. I'm not even mentioning their grand architecture which always has a huge presence in AC games.

Talk about "yet another ninja game" is also stupid as the AC game can be made in all sorts of directions, not necessarily about ninjas at all, and besides, there actually aren't many true "ninja" games. More stupid would be assassin's costume in any form in Victorian London.

London itself would be too moody a setting for a game. Look at Uncharted 3 - first part of the game was set in London with its slummy back alleys, bland brick buildings and dark, dank underground system. Many people couldn't get past that part fast enough and there were complaints that places set in Europe took away some of the Uncharted franchise's appeal, as its main charm is exploring the uncharted foreign places.
Victorian London is an ugly mass of huge slums, rapidly expanding dirty docks and gray mass of buildings, most of which were unappealing to the eye. Not to mention the fog.
And lastly there's no interesting conflict to grab on to in that era. The war with Napoleon was over, England mainly continued to expand its colonies and was busy with usual internal politics. The only thing of interest there is huge masses of poor people, famine, cholera epidemic and Jack the Ripper. So what work is there for and assassin?

It seems you have NO idea what you're talking about. I mentioned Holmes so he could look at the scenery for God's sake. Did you even read what I wrote? I don't want it in Victorian London because I live here, but because it's not bland. Do you even know what it looks like? It's not bland. Not all the buildings look the same. There are much, MUCH worse places to have an AC game. Like *cough* Asia *cough*. It wasn't all a "mass of slums" like you said. The fog is cool, and even the slums are! The Assassin could be somebody who lived in the slums. You say Victorian London is too "moody". That's the whole bloody point. The mood fits. Every place in the world has it's own mood, and mood of Victorian London would fit AC perfectly. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

>>Maybe in your mind. It would still be too moody to make a whole game in this "palette". It doesn't work for prolonged time. <<

Well I agree w/ riley, it's supposed be about mood. The catch to AC is the powerful, unique story going on... strong mood is important imo.

We don't know if they're going to do anything more with the location of the game after the initial game (like they did a trilogy w/ Ezio), but even when they did a trilogy of Ezio, they moved him from Rome to Constantinople for the next installment to continue the story.

With this logic, they can't pick anywhere to do the game - [esp. Asia].
I find the whole Asian thing to be too cliche' & so overdone. I guess I wouldn't mind one game there, but... there's too much else to choose from that would be so much more interesting & rich to draw from.

I like everything except Caesar's Conquest in Rome would be stupid IMO. Ubisoft would get massacred for re-doing Rome, even if it is in a different time period, the only difference will be no ruins and more fully built landmarks.

Personally, out of this list, Egypt seems the most exciting!

Egypt's my 2nd choice, I'm a huge fan of all things ancient Egypt - France sounds good too.

I cannot help feeling dissapointed with the results. The Victorian era is ahead by far, which is kind of sad because in many ways it would feel very much the same as the Renaissance in Assassin's 2. I personally favor the Ancient Egypt context, that would mean a drastic change in both the scenario and atmosphere, something which I feel the Assassin's franchise needs.

The concept that London at any time is too bland is absolutely ridiculous. And it certainly isn't just English people that prefer that setting being that I am American and I can assure you that I would MUCH rather see the next game in London than anywhere in the United States. I do prefer French Revolution over London but only slightly and because of the events that took place during the French Revolution fit an AC plot a little too perfectly. Also even if the game was in London which again I'd be totally cool with, I'd prefer it be earlier than the Victorian era.

Urgh, I am english just so you know before i start this.

I think AC in Victorian London/Industrial revolution would be awesome because during this time there are lots of mythology e.g. jack the ripper, however the setting seems so bland and i couldn't see it being entertaining, the architecture wouldn't be much enjoyment.
My worst fear of a game like this is trying to imagine an assassin with an awful, typical british accent, the thought horrifies me.
I personally feel that France would be MUCH better especially during the revolution.
The cities that are ideal for me are more of the ancient ones like the pharaoh reign in Egypt or cesars reign in Ancient Rome however, i doubt they will goo back in time with the franchise.

yea so the main enemy would use batons, and well i see that the Vitorian London is in the present far enough that i would think the cops would follow or stop anyone walking around with a knife. So then we shouldn't carry any weapons. but what about the armor thing, they need to do something there hah.

'effed' isn't the word when regarding shauns accent.

The reason I asked was due to the fact that I was not sure whether or not this survey was meant to be on Assassin's 3 or 4. I found it strange because, like you pointed out and very well, they have started working on Assassin's 3 for some time now, which means that it's artistic/historical "direction" has already been defined long ago.

Regardless, if the historical context for Assassin's 3 is to be the French Revolution, then I am dissapointed, I am not that enthusiastic about that period. Then again, that is merely my opinion, so...

In case it is not chosen for Assassin's 3, I do hope they choose Egypt for the 4th chapter, that would be outstanding. To travel throughout ancient Egypt, to explore the mysteries/myths of the construction of the pyramids and explore the pyramids themselves, that would be unique. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I voted for American Revolution, just because I'd like to know what's up with George Washington (having an Apple of Eden, and possibly being a Templar, but helping to found a representative government).

BUT, that being said, several of these periods are right on top of each other (American Revolution, French revolution, and Industrial revolution, which is kinda what defines the imagery of Victorian London). They could potentially all be covered within one assassin's lifetime.

There is no way a human being could have still been alive to see the industrial revolution if that person had been alive during the French or American Revolutions.

A game that has both the American Revolution and the French Revolution would be awesome, either with the same ancestor or with 2 different playable ancestors.

Anywhere is cool honestly, as long as they donít go crazy with guns. Add more stealth, coop, customization, more animations and etc. I would like to see Egypt cuz i havenít seen a game there before, also Iíd like to have the time be further back so bow and arrows could be in the game. But if itís in the future like England where steam power was coming around then they should do something with that. Perhaps have a new gadget that works with it, a steam powered Wire-Blade

Both the French and American revolutions occurred in the late 18th century. If you include Napoleon's reign, it's easily reach into the early 19th century too.

Dude, there's no way, let's say you were born in 1776 ok. So you were BORN the year the constitution was made, that means that one hundred years later would be 1876 which is still too early for the industrial revolution. Even with the French Revolution which yes did take place in 1789 and ended in the early 1800's, Even if you were born in say 1790, You'd be about 100 years old by 1890 when the Industrial Revolution first STARTED. So even if you were alive still in 1890 you'd be too old and you would have been a new born baby during the Revolutions. You couldn't have all three with one single protagonist.

...you do realize that the 18th century is the 1700s, and the 19th century is the 1800s, right? If that article defines the Industrial revolution starting in the 18th century, I don't see the problem here.

Oh btw, the Constitution was made in 1787, not 1776. That was the Declaration of Independence.

1782 is the year the war came to an end and the Treaty of Paris was signed. The war actually started in 1775 and the declaration of Independence was made in 1776. The Industrial Revolution was not in the 18th century at all it started in the very late 19th century and ended in around 1925 or so. Yes I do realize what 18th century means. That is how I know that a person alive during the mid 18th century would not be alive in the late 19th/early 20th century.

@kriegerdesgotte: I guess we're arguing about semantics, then. I wasn't saying that a person born could live THROUGHOUT the industrial revolution, just that they could see a good chunk of its' origins, perhaps even influence the revolution's direction.

Although I must ask, where are you getting your dates for the industrial revolution's start and end? The things I think of when I think about the industrial revolution-steam engines, railroads, mass-production, war machines in their most primitive forms- all began in the late 1700s and early 1800s, and were common by the late 1800s. What "revolutionary" thing was happening in the early 1900s that makes you want to lump it in with the revolution? PM me, I don't want to hog this thread.

Are you referring specifically to the second industrial revolution?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S...ndustrial_Revolution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Industrial_Revolution)

I was thinking of the entire thing, origins and all. In which case, it's entirely possible. Say a person was born in 1760-1765: they'd be old enough to fight in at least some portion of the revolutionary war (you only had to be 16 to join the continental army, and I'm sure you could be younger in a militia), and if they survive to be 100, they could easily see the origins of steam power and railroad networks.

Hey guys! This is my first reply in a Ubisoft forum. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Anyways, here is my opinion on where the most logical setting should be.

Here are two main problems with choosing a setting:
1. Desmond's DNA - I'm not an expert on genes or anything, but how can ancestors of Desmond have Chinese/Japanese DNA inside him? (This is assuming the ancestor will be from Desmond's line, but honestly, I think this will be a given, considering that Desmond IS the leading protagonist). All of the other ones listed in the poll are mildly realistic, considering that Desmond clearly has European and Middle Eastern/Arab roots.
2. Game Mechanics + Fan Service - If you think logically, going back any further SINCE the renaissance will pretty much be impossible. With every new installment we see in this franchise, we see new weapons, new additional bonuses, etc. If Ubisoft decides to go backwards in time, they'll pretty much be limiting all of our choices of weapons that we had in previous games. For example, although we didn't see the gun inside the wrist thing in ac1, we did in ac2. In fact, we saw it again in brotherhood, and also in revelations.

The following is a brief summary of the pros and cons I have with every suggested setting:

Victorian England
-Desmond's genes aren't a problem
-steampunk is gaining in popularity
-Ubisoft can add a lot of new weapons and other game mechanics to improve FROM previous installations of the Assassin's Creed Franchise that they would not previously (because obviously, technology in the Victorian Era is more advanced than the Renaissance Era)

American Revolution
-Desmond's genes aren't a problem
-a lot of people know about American history, regardless if whether or not they are actually Americans themselves (I'm Canadian, and it's kind of funny to see that I know a lot more about American history than some of my American friends!)
-as with Victorian England, Ubisoft can add a lot of new features because 1775 America has more advanced technology than 1459 Italy (when Ezio was born).

Spanish Conquistadors
-the pros of this are the same as Victorian Era and American Revolution
-I don't know about others, but I feel kind of bad for admitting that I actually don't know a lot about the whole Spanish colonialism of the Americas! In fact, before I played ac2, I knew next to nothing about the Renaissance. So, it'd be pretty good if Ubisoft chose this for the setting, because I'd learn a lot and I'd have fun at the same time! Plus, it will help me expand my knowledge and read more about this interesting branch of history.

Russian Revolution
-Desmond's genes aren't a problem
-as with the American Revolution and Victorian England, 1917 Russian technology is more advanced than 1459 Italy; ergo, Ubisoft can get a lot of resources to make interesting game features
-there are some problems to this: it's too recent. How can the hidden blade even compare with machine guns and ranged weapons now? Is this going to be a new Call of Duty or something?

Ancient Rome and Ancient Egypt
-I absolutely love these two civilizations. There's one problem though. It violates the second criterion that I gave (which was the issue of the advancement of gameplay)

Feudal Japan and Medieval China
-I love these time periods and locations too, but it violates BOTH of the criteria I set up! So how will these even be possible, unless having a whole new protagonist other than Desmond?

The American Industrial Revolution was one that took place from about 1885-1929 and died with the the depression. Many things were invented during the Civil War (1861-1865) but this was the match that ignited the Industrial Revolution to happen later. In 1870 we had a bit of a depression in the country and then in the 1880s people like Edison and Tesla came around and cities began to light up for the first time ever and cars came into use new and better steel was invented giving us the ability to create sky scrapers. This was the American Industrial Revolution which followed about the same timeline as the Victorian era in England. This all happened about 110 years after the American Revolution began so a person would have to be 130 years old at least and even then you wouldn't have seen much of the Revolution since you would have been born at the beginning of it.

Assassin's Creed 3 should start in the Cretaceous Period, 65 million years ago.
Desmond finds out that one of his early ancestors was a Velociraptor and he decides to use the animus to relieve the last memories of the dinosaur.
Doing so he finds out that the K-T Event was actually caused by a PoE falling to Earh, thus solving one of the greatest mysteries of our planet (and earning a well deserved Nobel Prize).
But he doesn't stop here and he decides to find the missing link in Darwin's Evolutionary Theory. So, using the animus, he finds out that The Ones That Came Before are actually aliens that mingled with the evolution and after many failed experiments they created what was to become the worst species of them all: The Humans. At first the idiotic humans looked harmless and friendly, but as ages go by they became greedy and slowly, but surely, they started to destroy the planet.
The Ones That Came Before realized their mistake, and decided to leave this primitive Galaxy, but they left hidden messages throughout history, messages that would lead to the only solution for Earth's predicament.
So Desmond finally understands what he has to do and makes a harsh but obvious decision: he becomes the Angel of the Apocalypse, and purifies the Earth of the plague that is humankind. Through his sacrifice Desmond becomes eternal and joins the Ones That Came Before.
But the end of humanity isn't the end of the Earth, it's only a new beginning so the planet starts to heal itself, and rises from it's own ashes.
After many millenia The Ones That Came Before, with Desmond by theirs side (unfortunately without his second Nobel Prize), return to Earth and, learning from their mistakes, this time they create the perfect race: The Desmondlings.

I think the next Assassins creed should take place in Feudal Japan because the Sengoku Jidai (war between rival clans for control of Japan) takes place in the 16th century right after the events in Revelations. Altair's descendants could have moved to Japan to keep the Templars from finding any more First Civilization technology.

And if you remember from AC2, they had a whole lot of Chinese characters, Oriental buildings, and Emperor Jiajiang's name drawn on the walls and floors of the Abstergo room when you turned on Eagle Vision. It's all been leading to China since the second installment, and I'm curious to what they have planned for the storyline there. Plus having ninja abilities along with assassin abilities will just be plain awesome.

I completely agree with AppleJuiceColt if anyone's seen the Sherlock Holmes films they'll know how amazing this setting is. And to actually have Sherlock Holmes involved would be great. It's a time of great industrial and cultural importance so it would be fitting to have the Assassin and Templar war raging strongly away amidst all that. The architecture is beautiful and the atmosphere is Creed-worthy. (Lots and lots of delicious fog)
Improved firearms would force the Assassins to act more stealthily which is what I think this series needs to do next. And of course Jack the Ripper could be a Templar agent and maybe Sweeney Todd aswell...

It's a time of great industrial and cultural importance so it would be fitting to have the Assassin and Templar war raging strongly away amidst all that. The architecture is beautiful and the atmosphere is Creed-worthy. (Lots and lots of delicious fog)
Improved firearms would force the Assassins to act more stealthily which is what I think this series needs to do next. And of course Jack the Ripper could be a Templar agent and maybe Sweeney Todd aswell...
Sweeny Todd and Sherlock Holmes are fictional characters...

Eh, yeah he was. The only "original" account of Marco Polo's "journal" was written by an at the time well known fiction writer and it's full of complete nonsense such as people with animal heads and other weird things that never existed. Historians generally agree that there is absolutely no reliable evidence that supports the existence of someone named Marco Polo that actually went to China.

Some historians argue he didn't exist, yes. He wouldn't be the first explorer to have lied about the places he'd been and the things he'd seen. That doesn't make him a fictional character necessarily, not in the way that we know Sherlock Holmes and Sweeney Todd to be fictional.

Ok, he might not be fictional, but considering the fact that his supposed account was written by a fiction writer and the fact that not even the very meticulous Chinese have any record of him being in China (even though he according to the story served as a governor under Kublai Khan) it very much more likely that he was indeed fictional, as is what most historians these days believe.

Actually that is incorrect. It is unknown if the man was actually a merchant traveler.

Assassin's Creed 3 should start in the Cretaceous Period, 65 million years ago.
Desmond finds out that one of his early ancestors was a Velociraptor and he decides to use the animus to relieve the last memories of the dinosaur.
Doing so he finds out that the K-T Event was actually caused by a PoE falling to Earh, thus solving one of the greatest mysteries of our planet (and earning a well deserved Nobel Prize).
But he doesn't stop here and he decides to find the missing link in Darwin's Evolutionary Theory. So, using the animus, he finds out that The Ones That Came Before are actually aliens that mingled with the evolution and after many failed experiments they created what was to become the worst species of them all: The Humans. At first the idiotic humans looked harmless and friendly, but as ages go by they became greedy and slowly, but surely, they started to destroy the planet.
The Ones That Came Before realized their mistake, and decided to leave this primitive Galaxy, but they left hidden messages throughout history, messages that would lead to the only solution for Earth's predicament.
So Desmond finally understands what he has to do and makes a harsh but obvious decision: he becomes the Angel of the Apocalypse, and purifies the Earth of the plague that is humankind. Through his sacrifice Desmond becomes eternal and joins the Ones That Came Before.
But the end of humanity isn't the end of the Earth, it's only a new beginning so the planet starts to heal itself, and rises from it's own ashes.
After many millenia The Ones That Came Before, with Desmond by theirs side (unfortunately without his second Nobel Prize), return to Earth and, learning from their mistakes, this time they create the perfect race: The Desmondlings.

I don't think AC3 will be the last one because in the survey they released they asked about the future games, so i think they will make more, especially because the AC franchise is their best selling franchise.

I am all for the asian side as it would easily keep the old fashioned secretive way of the assassins while still progressing slowly. I hope that the original idea of olden technology is carried on and modernistic weapons are not brought in unless they contribute heaps towards the stealth of the game for a while to come ( i hope the russian revolution option doesnt win )

And, of course, assassins, ninjas and samurais or kung fu monks together would be outstanding!
Just to think the diferents combos or even a possibility to your assassin be able to choose a specific fighting style and the places you will meet, wonderful

Thank you! I'm surprised nobody seems concerned about this. Going from world class cities of the past (Jerusalem, Damascus, Florence, Venice, Rome, Istanbul) to some backwater town that may as well have a tumbleweed blowing past. I'm not against America but the cities are really important to me and I can't see how any settlement in the country that is barely a hundred years old can honestly compete with the last city Istanbul. If we're going to America, I would like it to be set in the 1800's, atleast then they will have decent cities to work with.

Hasni mubarak leaving egypt. Surrounding areas of how libyas ghidafi and his son really died from their oppressing n killing thei people... including sadam in iraq (and leading to his hanging). Assassinating osama bin laden by seal 6. There's a lot still that can be done with the middle east and all the revolutions around the world that has happend (and once what happens in syria is final I'm sure that could feed the franchise too). Please. Anyone reading this I dont take pleasure in the disasters and death of recent or past revolutions, but the franchise is a versed historical readers outlet and entertaining answer to questions we'll never know the answers to... government coverups and all...

the countryside of Burma is mostly rainforest, apart from some hilly areas with rice paddies on, most villages in the country are tightly packed and are on stilts, there are lots of trains that pass through these rural areas, some of these trains go to the tops of very high mountains, some higher than Ben Nevis.

so what do you think?

Ubi loves to do unexpected and important places with some well known historical events. I have wondered if the would set it durring the conquest of Alexander of Macedon, or even shortly afterward in Alexandria, with the backstory based on his generals dividing the territories (Templar and Assassin generals)

Some of the choices fit but some do not. People need to remember that there are a few things that go along with an Assassins Creed game. Rooftops!!!

Also if they have a different setting with the next game it will probably be someone other than Desmond. And will take place somewhere around the same time the first game did, just at a different place than the middle east. So that way it can be another trilogy.

Assassin's Creed III definitely proves that rooftops are a major requirement for an Assassin's Creed game...

This guy's Deviantart got me excited for an AC game set in China: http://chaoyuanxu.deviantart.com/

I also want to see Victorian/Industrial England, India during the British Raj, the Spanish conquest of the Aztec empire, the French Revolution and the Russian Revolution.

Honestly...I don't know.

I would've loved the Spanish conquest if ACIII was in a different location. It's hard to beat those ancient cities. I'd really like to experience the feeling of discovering a whole thriving culture unknown to most of the world at the time.

Japan is a DEFINITE no for reasons already expressed by many others and the actual creative directors for the series. Shao Jun seems to have paved the way for some Chinese Creed material that I would like to see, but not in the form of a game. China in another time period might be cool.

I have absolutely no interest in Victorian England. I feel like that's been done to death in other media, and not "fresh" enough when compared to the Colonial period. Something in a British colony would definitely be more interesting.

Confrontation between Colonists and Native Americans....basically ACIII.

The rise of Caesar...well we already had Rome during the Renaissance. There's also that weird French non-canon comic.

Egypt...I really like ancient Egypt. Exploring pyramids like tombs would be really fun. Other than that, traversing the desert would get dull quick...and the inner cities are pretty similar to those of the cities in the original Assassin's Creed.

I'm not very familiar with Russian history, but a lot of cool stuff has already been covered in The Fall.

As for other suggestions I've seen, India sounds really cool. French Revolution is too close to the American Revolution. I think everyone can agree that World War II is covered by other games.

The Victorian era is the 19th century so I don't see how that is a transition between the Renaissance and the colonial era. Rome during the Roman Empire would also be very different from how it was during the Renaissance. The French comic, which is canon aside from its modern day storyline, is set during the 3rd century and is primarily set in the Gaul. Aquilus only visits Rome once, and you barely see any of the city.

You're right. I was thinking of the time period of the Baroque. That doesn't change the fact that there are countless movies, books, and TV series focused in this time period. That, and I still don't think it contrasts enough from the Colonial period. If a game were to take place in this time period, I would only care about a British colony.

Since the modern day story-line is what connects Altair, Ezio, and Connor to Desmond, the fact that it's not canon means a lot for the validity of Aquilus. I don't know anything about Gaul, but enough is left over from ancient Rome in Brotherhood for me to have my fill.

I know the events that occurred in all of these time periods varies greatly, but it can feel stale if the architecture and/or culture are too similar.

Aquilus is a canon character, there is nothing that contradicts his existence. He has appeared in the Assassin's Creed Universe video by Ubisoft on YouTube alongside all other characters and media, and he has his own entry in the Encyclopedia. He is canon.

That is all true, but he seems like something more akin to retcon. I have a hard time accepting him as an ancestor to the main character when he is never mentioned once in the games.

Unless you're suggesting...since the past is canon and the present is not, he was indeed an ancestor of Desmond who, in canon, is not aware of him.

Yes, Desmond doesn't necessarily have to be aware of him. It's not very likely that Desmond indeed is, since he wasn't aware of AltaÔr and Ezio either before he was forced to relive their memories. But Aquilus really is one of Desmond's ancestors alongside AltaÔr, Ezio and Connor. :)

The best place would be INDIAAAAA since it is so diverse and unique from the ones so far, and it is freakin huge!! It would be good.

i would have loved to see the carribean in the 17th century, you've got pirates, the east india company, native americans, british vs spanish etc.

Think 'Pirates of the Carribean'

Would be quite cool i think

I voted also for victorian england. But I would also like to see a game based in the last few decades of the ottoman empire ranging from before WWI (including an incorporation of the assasination of Franz Ferdinand?) leading into the post WWI and pre WWII europe (including the new Turkish Replublic). So basically the south-eastern part of europe during, let us say, 1890 to 1930? The is a lot of political and architectural diversety going on in that part of the world in that period.

All of this choices are okay,for me pesonaly really nice would be Ancient Egypt and Victorian England but i would like Russian Revolution that would be horrible because AC franchise isnt for WW1,WW2

To me:

100 years war
Mughal Empire (India)


Sumerian Civilization, so instead of Ancient egypt that has bee done many times, we get to visit cities llike Nineveh, Ur and Babylon. That could be the origins of both orders.
May be the templars are not as united as we think, they might have "branches". So, since it is been stated that George Bush is one of them, what if the whole Invasion to Irak (the location of those ancient places) was an excuse to find cough cough "something" and not only oil :P
