Medieval China? Victorian England? Ancient Egypt?
Last week, rumors emerged that Ubisoft had dropped a none too subtle hint as to where - or to be more precise, when - the next Assassin's Creed adventure might take place. We've put our death-dealing skills to good use in The Holy Land, Renaissance-era Italy and now Constantinople thanks to Ezio - and Altair's - latest adventure. But what's next? Well, a recent survey submitted by Ubisoft might contain the answer.
"Among the following propositions, in which of the following historical periods and locations would you like one of the next Assassin's Creed games to take place?" reads Ubisoft's survey, intercepted by EmpireStateGamer. We've long expected Ubisoft to plump for a Russian or Egyptian scenario, as both have been teased in cross-media Assassin's Creed works. They're included on the list, but so are other, far more tantalizing options.
- The violent conflicts of the Imperial Dynasties in Medieval China
- The advent of the mighty British Empire during Victorian England
- The culmination of the Pharaoh Reign in Ancient Egypt
- The invasion of the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors
- The confrontation between British colonists and native Americans during The American Revolution
- The overthrow of the Tsar Empire by the Communists during the Russian Revolution
- The Warlord Battles in Feudal Japan
- The rise of Cesar's Empire in Ancient Rome
So, what takes your fancy, Dealspwners? I must admit, the prospect of rocking a full suit of samurai armor in Feudal Japan is simply mouth-watering, and Victorian London has been high on our own personal list for some time. History buffs, now's your time to shine and regale us with your knowledge! [EmpireStateGamer]
