I know that Black Flags is still a ways out, but what would you guys like to see in the AC after this one. Do you want to keep going with pirates or not. I had the idea that Ubisoft could branch out and make an alternate pirate history. Back around 1720 Charles Vane met with Blackbeard to try and start a Carribean pirate nation, but Blackbeard declined since his work was going good. But Ubisoft could make it so Edward is an extremely important person in the founding of the pirate nation, the templars would be the british that occupy the land they wish to build on. Please say your ideas, and if you agree or not. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by Fmarshal (talk · contr)
- One pirate game is enough for me. One game with any particular setting is enough for me. Maybe in the far future they could do pirates again, after they've done a number of other unique settings. I want the game to be something ENTIRELY different. Something out of a completely different era. Ancient Rome or medieval China, something like that. After the Spartacus TV series ended, I think they could easily base some Assassin story off of him. But anything is good to me - as long as we get out of this colonial era. -- Master Sima Yi Clogs 09:13, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
- I do agree with Sima, but to be honest, I'm a bit doubtful about how BF is gonna work out. I personally dont want another pirate based AC game. What I really want is a proper ending to Desmond's story ..with no loose ends The Dark Soul (talk) 10:27, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
- And what about the ships ? Do they just leave the whole mechanic and move on in the next games ?
- We all know how successful this part of the game was in AC3, and in BF they seem to be moving towards that direction. Personaly, I wouldn't mind if the next AC games had no naval parts, but many fans seem to enjoy them, so... where do they go now ? Powerslave13 (talk) 20:13, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
Personally, i'd love a modern day story, and unlike other AC games it would be ALL in the present, no animus, but i dont see Ubisoft doing that. Another possibility for me would Ancient Rome or sometime in China/Japan (i'd love to be a ninja!) Platapuss9981 (talk) 20:31, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
As I said to many people, and continue to say to this day, an Assassin's Creed game set entirely in the present is a total no-no. The principal appeal of this series is that you get to visit historical periods of importance, participate in major events in human history, and, most of all, you get to meet historical individuals, sometimes some of the greatest men (and women)! An AC game all in the present, with no animus, would just kill the franchise. Allfictions (talk) 19:38, May 13, 2013 (UTC)
The keeping the ship mechanic in wouldn't be too difficult in other time perioids. I too am pro heading east with the series. It's arguable that focusing on the crusades, the italian renaisance and the colonisation of America, that the series so far has had one foot in european history. It would be nice to go to China or Japan. In that case you could keep in the ship mechanics but shrink it with junks or other early boats. At some points in history China's navy was a key feature in its army, in particular in the south. Assassin for the argonauts (talk) 16:09, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
It is true and would be very good. But Ubisoft shy away from well trodden ground and Koei have kind of done that period. As much as I think that the rise of the Jin dynasty could have a nice twist, with the Sima family being the templars. Then Kong Ming leading the assassins and Cao Cao being an example of just a warlord who genuinely is unaware of the Assassin/Templar war. Also historical/fictional blurrings (which we owe to Luo Guanzhong) could make interesting POE references. For example the claim that Kong Ming prayed for the weather as opposed to predict it, Cao Cao's doctor's amazing healing knowledge and the mytic taoists.

Ubisoft making a game set during the Golden Age of Piracy, when Pirates of the Caribbean and numerous other video games have explored that period already, kind of throws their previous mindset of 'we explore only hardly visited periods' out the window. I'm not really feeling Zhuge Liang being an Assassin and the whole Sima family being Templars, but something similar could be good. -- Master Sima Yi Clogs 20:59, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
You are right about the piracy thing...I was just trying to stay true to what Ubi said but you raise a good point. Haha I was just comparing ideas of liberty and 'benevelance' towards one's citizens against the seizing of power from within the Cao empire. To be honest with more thought the Sun/Yuan dynamic (Quan giving away the impereal seal as it meant nothing and Yuan Shu using it to declare himself emporer) might make more sense. I must admit my knowledge of this area of history is driven by DW, the Red Cliff film and wikipedia so not an expert! Assassin for the argonauts (talk) 21:07, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Sima: The 'we explore only hardly visited periods' speetch has been changed to 'we explore only hardly visited periods and/or show a more accurate version of more visited periods'. Something like that can't remember word for word what they said but, they have changed their mindset so Japan/Egypt may be possible.--ACsenior (talk) 21:16, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Splinter Cell: Blacklist developer Ubisoft Toronto will help make the next Assassin's Creed game due after Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.
Ubisoft Toronto is under the command of Jade Raymond, a key creative force behind the first Assassin's Creed game.
The new, unannounced Assassin's Creed game is presumably the annual release for 2014. And it's one of five projects that Ubisoft Toronto will help out with.
"As we're wrapping up Splinter Cell, we're also looking to expand, so we're going to be working on five different projects," Raymond told IGN.
"One of the franchises that's very near and dear to me, Assassin's Creed, is one of the ones we're going to be collaborating on in Toronto, as well as one other big franchise which we're not going to announce yet."
These other games include two "big collaborations" with Ubisoft Montreal.
Raymond clarified that she wasn't referring to this year's Black Flag, "because we're currently shipping [Splinter Cell: Blacklist]". "So an upcoming Assassin's Creed," she said.
No One Pirate game then thats it, I am very excited for Black Flag but the next game after that i want a new hero new period in history, personally i am all for the French Revolution.
I'm just gonna jump the shark and suggest a setting in Ethiopia during the Middle Ages! No one will see it coming! lol Seriously, though, disregarding the middle ages, Ethiopia does have a nice history and I'm certain there are parts of it that could fit in an AC game, storywise. If not, then I'll suggest Babylonia or China :/ Btw, I'm on board with the French Revolution idea, but as I said in another forum, it wouldn't work as AC5 since it's in the same century as AC3 and AC4.

It is true that Africa and Oceania is not present in the Assassin's Creed series, anyway every country and every period of history could have place in a game, so there is an infinity of possibilities for a game (Math34 (talk) 11:50, June 15, 2013 (UTC))
I Would Like To See It Take Off From Edwars Son Taking Over For His Dad. That Would Be A Good Story Line. But An Assassins Creed Would Do. Love Those Games.
