Ubisoft: WW2, Egypt & Japan Are ‘Boring’ Settings For Assassin’s Creed

Alex Hutchinson, the creative director for Assassin’s Creed III told OXM that fans most requested settings for the series are the worst.

“People on the internet suggest the most boring settings, The three most wanted are WWII, feudal Japan and Egypt. They’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.”

Hutchinson isn’t completely closed off to settings outside of the American Revolution though. He did give praise to one country:

Assassin’s Creed III writer Corey May really wants to do India, and Hutchinson agrees, saying “I would too. I’d really love to do the Raj.”

Previously, Ubisoft said “Desmond will play a big part in ACIII”

Assassin’s Creed III will release on October 30 for PC, PS3, Xbox360 and Wii U.

  1. see i want to see connor actually prepare for the winter and stock up on food and store it all winter and actually have it spoil after a while, kinda go into survival mode, and build a city within the forest in the upper canopy of the woods…. make it more realistic as far as survival… even though it is through animus but still they still had to survive

  2. i dont know about egypt ww2 but japan can b a good place as the assassin can have a warlord as the main enemy
    and he keeps killing his followers
    it l b quite nice story


    …russian revolution anyone? :(

    • The Russian Revolution is featured in the Assassin's Creed: The Fall comic.

  4. i quite like the idea of japan too. ww2 was done to death on video game so move on. but like they say i dont think it will be another assasin creed after this one coz according to the report i hear this one will end on whether we save the planet or not, so they no point on using the animus after that. all they can do is doing in modern day following desmond running away the templar or him going after them to finish them all

    • There will be more games after Assassin's Creed III, but not annually like they are doing currently. If there is still a demand for the games, they will deliver.

  5. I want them to do Feudal Japan!

    • I do too! I think Feudal Japan would be amazing, but it seems like it may never happen now. :(

    • I want in Ancient Roma, there is many political things in roma, and corruption… a good place to assassin work… and could explain the beggining of asassin's crew..

  6. Well i really want a ac game in Canada in the war of 1812 or anytime in Canada its a bit weird that ubisoft Montreal a Canadian company does most work for the ac franchise yet there's no ac game in Canada

    • Well, thats just because an ac game would be pretty boring if it was set in Canada. Why would the developers make an ac game based on their home country if no one would like it

    • i agree, American Revolution really? Come on.,

  7. Why not on Indonesia, Dutch East Indies, people don't know we can make them know. Ubisoft, try to think that our settings should be on Indonesia, hundreds of histories, and I think that is the most suitable place for Assassin's Creed. Or the Majapahit Empire, we are not just going to sail in Europe too much or America, why not trying Asia?? World War 2 dosen't really change at all. We need something new, something that we don't know. I hope Assassin's Creed IV will be on Indonesia. I hope so. Alot of corrupted leaders, the Dutch colonizing Indonesia, and hundreds of Heroes in each lands, but there must be only one assassin to make an uprising.

  8. Maybe it should take place in russia, but in the modern times, have it take place as a different assassin, going into the animus to find a way to stop juno

  9. I want them to do Philippines from spanish until americans. I pray for it every time

  10. British isles would be class. Assassin's running about the highlands and then industrial London.

  11. I think Japan is a good idea, when you can use a katane e.g. you have a different fighting style then ever before or you can use ninja techniques this wouldn´t be similar to the games before who were nearly the same they can make a completely new fighting style, because when the assassins are like ninjas then you are more flexible and do better and mor good k´looking combos if you jump over the enemy when you kill him and stuff like that. And the culture is very different from the other AC games. This would be refresh AC a bit in my opinion. Then it is not the same just with a different setting.

  12. I don't need to see the AC series put up in one country, but I would love to see a viking version of the assassins. Also going back to Italy is no shame. I loved my time in Firence, Venice and Rome. There would too look good with a game based on this time. What i do know is that i loved the AC III new engine and loved everything from movement, interaction with animals and weather changes. What makes me frustrated anyways is the fact that it rapidly became boring when game was completed. there should be more random events all the time in the game. the fighting was good but i think there is more to be done there, more creative kills and the slow motion when u actually kill the last enemy in a big group… sometimes failed. At else I do not complain. It

  13. I just want to know if there will be another Assasins creed ? Please let me know I love the AC games

  14. I vote form my country,Serbia:D In time of our rebellion against the Turks,it would mean Slavic culture,different tradition and weapons,and btw. my great ansestor assassinated a ottoman feudal owner at his days B| :D,tell me what do you think about it ?? :DDDD it would mean a lot to me guys…

  15. How about Finland in 1916-1950
    It would be different and interesting. How can I request this idea?

  16. why don't they just go further in the USA and go to the Civil War. i think that would be interesting. i t would kinda continue the story because it would say that after years of fighting over slavery the american people who fought for the freedom of the land are against each other and go from there

  17. They Already have a assassin for Egypt Her name is Amunet, In AC 2 The room were altairs armor is at there is here statue

  18. Typical. So "japan" is boring? Are you barking insane?
    If you ask about a ninja, people will answer "assassin" and visa versa. How the FCK can this be "unoriginal"?

    I see another boring stupid setting, like AC3. The revolution was a boring story.

  19. They should do Egypt because you could go into pyramids, do missions in the desert, and it would not be boring at all, at least not for me.
