So theres a survey bouncing around in which Ubisoft are asking where the next Assassin's Creed should be set,

(This is not for the game due out next year (which is the end of Desmond's story) but where they go with the series after that)

The eight options are:

*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

Which would you pick, let us know!

The advent of the mighty British Empire during Victorian England.

Followed by Egypt then Feudal Japan.

But, if we're all honest it should be set in Belfast, Northern Ireland. During the height of the troubles.

Medieval China would be so badass.

Oooooo, I'd say Russian Revolution, so much scope and scenario for that setting.
But Medieval China would be another awesome setting, BUT only if they dont try any bizzare mildly offensive Chi-English accents with the dialogue.

I don't think the American settings would work as there weren't any really tall buildings around then AFAIK. Victorian England probably get my vote followed by Russian Revolution.

Actually now that I think about quite a few of these might not work given the prevalence of firearms.

Somewhere in the new world. Early era of English north American colonization and the birth of what will become USA......and im not even American :)

Is it possible to have all those options, they all sound pretty badass. I suppose if I had to choose one i'd go with Fuedal Japan, you're already pretty much a ninja, may as well be in the proper time period.

While that would be cool, I think it would be cool to have it set in the Irish Revolution ie; Easter Rising, perhaps even assassinating Michael Collins as an essential part of the plot. While I personally would like to side with the Free-Staters it would make a better campaign to be on the side of the anti treaty forces

None! Set it in the present and wrap up Desmond's story already!

I think China or Japan would work out pretty well myself.

feudal japan, those roofs are asking to be parkoured on.

either the overthrow of the Tsar empire
or the victorian england.. or maybe a different era england, centered around the gunpowder plot, and desmond would relive the life of one of the plotters who has gone unrecorded by history, and in the end escaped

Russian revolution, definitely. It's such an incredibly interesting period of history that barely ever gets covered. You can have American, Japanese and British characters too, due to the foreign intervention, so there's a lot of opportunities for interesting situations. Interesting guns too. Nagant revolvers, Maxim guns, Federov assault rifles. Great stuff.

Although these are both great too. I'd be very up for those. The only problem I can find is that Ireland doesn't have nearly as many tall buildings and built up streets as would be necessary for an Assassins Creed game. And of course, there already exists an Irish Assassins Creed, sort of, in the guise of the very underrated The Saboteur. Still though, I would love something Irish. Real Irish, not corny, fake Irish.

Victorian Britain please, more games need to be set in and around the British Empire.

Would say China, but it doesn't say which dynasty, there has been a few. Though it does say Medieval so that rules out Romance of the Three kingdoms era (too early) and the end of the Qing (too late), both of which would be epic.

This, we've messed around enough with the past, time to actually continue the friggin story please. After that, I don't mind one bit if Ubisoft keeps churning out pointless expansions.

They're all awesome settings. My favorite would be Egypt though.

Yea, it would quite funny running along the roof of a Bungalow lol, The real issue is N.Ireland is still pretty politically sensitive and a game like this (Particularly when one side will be the heroic Assasins and the other would be the Evil Templars)people would get pissed.

Given all the hints in Revelations I'd be surprised if it wasn't set in China. Marco Polo's father made an appearance as well as Mongols, and Marco Polo ventured to China during the Yuan Dynasty which was ruled by Mongols so it's not hard to create a story where a Han Chinese assassin takes on Mongols.

If they did Japan they could do during the Meiji Restoration.

That or England During the Act of Supremacy when Henry VIII broke with the Catholic Church.
Having a degree in history I think there's a lot more interesting periods of history than just Europe and Colonial America.

I call Egypt. I might just enjoy the whole thing again.

Medieval China sounds the coolest to me, because of how very few games have had that awesome setting.

There is only one answer:

IN SPACE! *echo*

(edit: Poll eaten by trolls)

I say fuck no to England and Feudal Japan.

Why? Because we have seen that stuff done to death in other places. AC is about taking us to new places that we haven't otherwise explored or would have really explored on our own. Besides, most people want Victorian England because of 'teh steampunk' and Japan so they can be ninja and samurai.

My vote is for the Tsar Empire. Not NEARLY explored enough.

These are all awesome, but I think it should definitely be after the Renaissance and Ezio's time. It would be weird to go backwards after all this progression, American Revolution would be fascinating, in my opinion.

I want contemporary Assassins, but Ubi loves to keep that plotline as the background. So its a toss up between American Rev, which could be an interesting scenery switch as most of North America was wilds. I'd like to see that in a more open map setting rather than the confined to Rome/Constantinople(Istanbul)/[insert Italian city]. That was the one thing I liked about AC1, the in-between map. Also perhaps Feudal Japan or Medieval China. I'm kinda sick of Europe, no offense to you Europeans.

EDIT: Wouldn't it be really screwy if we find out that Desmond isn't even the main character but actually someone else in an Animus living his life? Yeah... ok... Inception kinda ruined that idea (tho it was a badass movie).

Definitely Victorian England, I was really hoping that revelations was going to be in Victorian England, but I was dissapointed :(

Otherwise either China or Feudal Japan (preferably the latter) as these are not covered enough in video games

I can see each and every one of those settings working out nicely so I'm torn between them. But I think they shouldn't pay too much heed to fans' demands and just make whatever they think will work out best.

As long as it's not another fucking Ezio game.

Hmm, England, Egypt, China and Japan all sound good to me.

Russia sounds ok at best, i think we have had enough of Italy and i just outright dont want the American senarios.

Feudal Japan plz plz plz plz
We need a decent ninja game for once.

I say American revolution. I can just picture all the cool gadgets they could make then. Plus it is a really unexplored time in video games.

I actually wanna say Russian Revolution since i'm assuming they mean the 1917 one. It'd bring the series onwards in time rather than suddenly jump back even further than the starting point...

Plus i think it'd be interesting. Maybe we'd even get to rescue Anastasia at some point :P

No Norwegian/ Swedish unification of Viking clan setting?

I am disappoint. I abstain.

Maybe they don't want to make it seem too much like Skyrim. But it's not like I would ever buy another AssCreed game again >_>

I'd prefer Victorian England, but any time is alright if Desmond has a female ancestor. Or did his family produce an unbroken line of male babies?

It would amuse me, is all I'm saying.

Well my first thought was Hoth

But as that is unlikely to happen (i want a hidden lightsaber) i will choose The british empire option as it will have a vastly different atmosphere and will allow the progress of the assassins technology withut feeling like corny (e.g secret assasin dude in ancient rome invents some snazzy new gadgets) and also half of those wouldnt make sense as the templars as an organisation where formed during the crusades so anything prior (upto 1000 years for christ sakes) would seem a bit silly

Besides i want the next assassin to wear a top hat.

I said this in another thread a while back, so I'll say it again. Wouldn't the Victorian Era be a cool setting for the next Assassin's Creed game? Maybe you could have that Jack the Ripper is an Assassin who went rogue and joined the Templars. He would make a kickass final boss.

I expect credit Ubisoft -_-

Well from the choices available i would have to say Russian Revolution or Victoria England, both sound cool enough that its hard to pick between them.
