WARNING! Spoilers For AC: Revelations Inside!
We've long wondered where Ubisoft might take the next full-blown Assassin's Creed adventure. While we've enjoyed seeing out Ezio's last days in last year's Brotherhood and this month's Revelations, we here at Dealspwn feel we've spent enough time in one era and it would be in the franchise's benefit to truly move the narrative forward. But have Ubisoft dropped a none too subtle hint in their latest offering?
When you've finished up Assassin's Creed: Revelations, which as we all now know puts us back in the boots of Crusades-era assassin, Altair, you might notice his son, Darim, mentions moving his father's precious books to Alexandria, the once capital of Egypt. Such a setting would seem to be a perfect fit for Assassin's creed; a place rife with culture, diversity, advances in technology and, of course, a generous helping of violence and corruption.
It's not set in stone, of course; Ubisoft might simply be adding to the narrative or merely teasing their rabid fanbase. But the publisher has already promised a new Assassin's Creed adventure for next year - the last of the annualized iterations, we hope - and after two successive continuations of the second game, might this be the long-awaited third?
