I thought about maybe not going too far back, maybe into, like, the ’50’s in America. You know, I think that could be a really interesting period around the Cold War. Traditionally, I think they’ve gone back further than that. Recent history is something I’m quite interested in. You can definitely kind of do a film-noir thing to it.

When asked about why he chose the Spanish Inquisition for Assassin’s Creed movie he said that there is a great scope in this setting.

I think there’s great scope there to kind of go into. I think you have to go into volatile points of history, that’s why the Spanish Inquisition works so well because you got something the assassins could rally against in terms of the religious persecution that was going on there.

The idea of an Assassin’s Creed movie set in Cold War-era American 1950s seems quite interesting as no game in the franchise has showcased assassin’s in that era or the conflict in that era. The movie could show the templars pulling the strings behind the cold war to take advantage.

Ubisoft is currently working on another Assassin’s Creed game but the studio has made it clear that it would delay it furthermore if it does not meet the expectations.

Ubisoft VP of Editorial, Tommy François bluntly said that Ubisoft is going for better quality for its game, even if that means skipping Assassin’s Creed or Far Cry games for another year.
