A number of Assassin’s Creed Origins owners might shape the future of the series, as they’ve been given a survey about future Assassin’s Creed settings. The survey comes after Assassin’s Creed Origins itself broke the mold and set the period in Ptolemaic Egypt, a place it’s never gone before.
There have been multiple Assassin’s Creed settings all across the franchise, ranging from the Middle East during the Crusades, the city of Constantinople, the Italian Peninsula, the Thirteen Colonies during the American Revolution, the Caribbean Sea during the Golden Age of Piracy, Paris during the French Revolution, and London during the Industrial Revolution.
Other side materials have taken players to India, Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution, and Imperial China, but now it appears like Ubisoft is ready to go somewhere else when it comes to future Assassin’s Creed settings, and that shows greatly in the survey and its chosen locations.
These locations include places like the Arthurian period, William the Conqueror’s invasion, the Hundred Years War with Joan of Arc, Vikings, Mongols, Hannibal and the Punic Wars, the Spanish invasion of the Americas, Imperial China and Japan, the Russian Revolution, and the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta back in the times of ancient Greece.
Two of these possibilities are actually rather notable, as many players who played Black Flag and read Abstergo emails often joked that they were interdepartmental emails between Ubisoft employees, particularly how no one would want an Asian Assassin’s Creed game because ninjas were too cliche.
With the success of the Egyptian setting, Ubisoft is most likely feeling braver about setting the new Assassin’s Creed games in unfamiliar locations, hence the surveys. Whether these will actually go anywhere remains to be seen, but if Ubisoft can keep making great Assassin’s Creed games like Origins in brand new locations like Egypt, then hopefully all of these survey answers will eventually happen.
