Assassin’s Creed 5 to be set in Russia and not Feudal Japan?

Alright so we have been hearing about the next game in the Assassin’s Creed universe for a while now and according to the new information, it is called Assassin’s Creed 5: Great Fall and will come out this year.

Quite a handful of rumors have been surrounding the project with location and setting taking the prominence. New information suggests that the historical location of the game could be somewhere in Russia.

The AC Initiates Twitter profile has been teasing what could possibly be hints at the next Assassin’s Creed location. Two tweets were made, both with a hexadecimal as well as coordinates.

Hexadecimal contained in the first of the two tweets can be translated into North and the coordinates point to a location near Alberta, Canada. Now what could this be? Could this be the modern day setting of Assassin’s Creed 5? You would remember that the modern time shown in Black Flag was situated in Montreal Quebec, so Alberta could be a possibility.

On the other hand, the hexadecimal in the second tweet translates into East, and the coordinates point towards a location near Moscow Russia, to be exact the place is called Barguzin.

Previously it was being rumored that the next game in the series would feature somewhere in ancient Egypt or the feudal Japan. The buzz was shunned by Ubisoft executive Jade Raymond in an interview when she said that the game will take place in her favorite historical era which is not the samurai age of Japan.

As with all the speculations, teasers and rumors, all this could be taken with a pinch of salt until something is confirmed by Ubisoft.

Oh and by the way, do you think all this could be leading to something else and maybe Reymond’s favorite historical era is ancient Egypt? Assassin’s Creed 5 in the historical Egypt would be nice too!
