Assassin's Creed Writer Talks Possible Future Settings
Assassin's Creed is known for being historically intriguing, as we've visited multiple eras and cities throughout the franchise.
From the Middle Ages to Italy during the Renaissance to the American Revolutionary War, we've indulged in the meticulously created worlds from our past. But franchise lead writer Darby McDevitt said during a Comic-Con panel that a modern-day installment is possible.
He said "there's always a chance" but he did add that one of the cornerstones of the series was the "historical tourism," and he's absolutely right about that. The other possibility is feudal Japan, as he said:
"I think the Shogunate is in a cool era, but it's up to one person, and whatever we do, we'll make it cool."
What do you think about a modern-day or feudal Japan setting? Personally, I'm not a big fan of either idea. I'd like to see a true Medieval setting; you know, wander around during the days of King Arthur and the legendary Knights of the Round Table. That was supposedly an important time for the Templar order, too, so it would fit in nicely with the ongoing Assassin's Creed saga. Where would you like to visit in the next AC?
