There’s a chance that Ubisoft one day brings the Assassin’s Creed franchise into a modern setting, but it’s not likely because of the popularity of the historical settings that the game has become known for. Darby McDevitt of Ubisoft explained at San Diego Comic Con about possible settings for Assassin’s Creed.
When speaking about the possibility of a modern setting for the popular series, McDevitt says “There’s always a chance, but one of the biggest draws of the series is the historical tourism.”
The Assassin’s Creed franchise has taken fans into a number of different settings over the years, and most recently saw its most rapid transition from the Revolutionary War to the Pirates of the Caribbean in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.
McDevitt also hit on the topic of possibile scenarios for the game, one being feudal Japan. And while he says that an Assassin’s Creed game set in feudal Japan “is a cool idea, but it’s not up to one person.”
It may be a little too early to start talking about the next Assassin’s Creed game anyway. Fans haven’t even had a chance to scratch the surface of Black Flag, which is due to arrive on current and next-gen consoles in October.
