I wonder why ppl are still thinkin this will be anywhere else, but real time... This was set to be a trilogy and as far as I can say we have had 2 already... (with 2 parts of AC nonetheless).

Would be cool as a spinoff to have it in Japan much more so than in France, but possibilities are endless^^

I think that having a piece of AC in feudal Japan has good potential. The next game though, I've got to go with no; doesn't feel right to me. A spin-off game, graphic novel, ect. sounds good though.

I think I agree. There are a ton of people that don't, but I can kind of see it. It fits in w/ the timeline (being some 300+ years after ACII/B). If they don't make the ancestor of Desmond a ninja or a samurai, I believe that would be better, though. They should be a clandestine group that works under the society of the day, not a well-known piece of it. They would have to explain the migration to Japan in just 300 years, though. People didn't do a lot of moving from Europe to Asia as families in those days (unless they position it that an ancestor of Desmond specifically went to Japan already as an assassin to stop Templars or find the Piece of Eden. I can see France bein really well done, too, though. I'm sure Ubi will do a great job w/ it either way...

I'd love to see a realistic ninja game, but I've already got dibs on that idea and judging from the way Ubisoft has handled the AC & SC series I wouldn't trust them to deliver an appropriately tense, immersive or challenging stealth experience.

i think Ac3 will be during the spanish inquisition. it was when the Catholic Monarchs tried to maintain Catholic orthodoxy in their kingdoms. it was all about control and censorship, which sounds right up the templars alley. the ac games deal heavily with religion and the church. plus they try to do timelines that arent seen in games.i think feudal japan would be tight but i dont see it happening

Wow... Calling some of the most culturally and historically rich periods, with some of the most society-changing developments, boring...

While I do agree that an Assassin's Creed spin-off in feudal Japan would be great, I just don't think that it would be matching for a main-series game. Japan was rather closed-off in regards to the outside world until after WWII, and most historical developments happening in feudal Japan likely had no effects on most other places.

mainly cuz Ubisoft has already said (many times in fact) that there will be a new ancestor and assassin's creed is about a person who is fighting against the templars and using the animus.

Excuse me?? Obviously that's something only an American could write.
I won't go into the reasons why you may find the French Revolution boring but please, be assured that NO ONE else in the world is interested in the American Revolution or their annoying and much-too-discussed Civil Wars.

As far as I know, Ubi is more interested in scenarios that aren't common in videogames, so Feudal Japan, Imperial China, Pre-American Civilizations, Ancient Egipt, French Revolution, Victorian England, Russian Revolution are all much more likely for a GOOD story.

I'm hoping it'll be the French Revolution: lots of contrast scenarios in society + huge philosophical context + one the bloodiest revolutions ever + countless monuments and architectural richness and last but not least, quite a few leads already shown in AC:Brotherhood.

No, all signs point nowhere. Nobody exept Ubisoft can tell where the next game will take place. And everybody acts like he's the biggest fan of the french revolution since somebody who calls himself an analyst said it's most likely that ubisoft is going to use this setting for AC2.

ANYTHING is possible for AC3.

It would ruin the series if the game would take place in fedual Japan, the games would loose their origin. I vote for France reveloution because it would "match" with the former games.

PS: Assassins are not ninjas, so if you want a ninja game, contact ubisoft with the suggestion.

Hmm devolved into a world vs. US argument. Might as well get it out of the way

For all intents and purposes I kept viewing the next installment as a world encompassing event in the modern or quasi future perspective. Vine climbing in the jungles of South America, subterranean crypts of Venice, leaps from the Eiffel Tower, climbing for a viewpoint atop the Kremlin...

Or, if not that, then I'd hope for it set during the Tokugawa Shogunate at the end of Sakoku.

Feudal japan would certainly have some cool additions. Probably some killer new counter attacks and weapons and such. Howver I would say that we can assume UBI will do one of two things, either they will continue with the modernizing trend thing. (ACII being more historically recent than AC). In which case France makes total sense. OR they will go back farther in time. Perhaps one of the famous assassins from inside the shrine at Mario's villa?

Anyways those are my ideas

Sometime around the seven years' war. It would move the action to another continent (Asia -> Europe -> America) and give massive potential for construction/renovation, amongst other things.

But that's just a wish, I'm tired of Europe and don't want to set foot anywhere near Japan.

Nobody outside of that nation's headache-inducing population could give a damn about it, but the French Revolutions could be done much better in terms of setting and story, and still retain the Assassin's Creed theme of going to interesting countries.

Mind, I'm still hoping for it to be set in post-apartheid Africa, could be done well although I suppose it'd end up coming into a bunch of controversial debates.

The French Revolution was not an important part of history? OMFG! what has happened to the world!

Now being serious there are several hints that indicate the French Revolution as the place for our next ancester.
Desmond was placed back in the Animus so it's possible that in the next game even if not most, we'll need another ancester.

The Phrygian Cap stands for freedom now the principles of french revolution were: "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" Liberty similar in meaning to freedom, not to mention both the phrygian cap and masonic eye are present in the French Revolution, but the Phrygian cap was actively used and worn by the revolutionaires.

Now also when Ezio tlks to Minerva in El Vaticano she mentions 3 "Gods", 3 of Those Who Came Before. The Capitoline Triad: Minerva, Jupiter and Juno.
Now if we analyze the locations, the encounters with Minerva and Juno have both been in churches or holy places.
Santa Maria Aracoeli was built on top of Juno's Temple.
Now how does this tie to France? look at a little information:

The Notre Dame de Paris stands on the site of Paris' first Christian church, Saint Etienne basilica, which was itself built on the site of a Roman temple to Jupiter.
Notre Dame is one of the most important and most famous churches.
Another interesting fact:

In 1793, the cathedral fell victim to the French Revolution. Many sculptures and treasures were destroyed or plundered; the cathedral was rededicated to the Cult of Reason and later to the Cult of the Supreme Being. Lady Liberty replaced the Virgin Mary on several altars. The cathedral also came to be used as a warehouse for the storage of food.
Now I know that's not a very interesting or significant fact, but it could very well be "The Father Of Understanding".

Another point: during french revolution the monarchy was overthrown in just 3 years. Basically the start of republics and liberal democracies after Napoleon took over.

Napoleon takes over and starts to conquer everything in Europe... now if we remember AC2's glyphs, in one of the Napoleon had a Piece Of Eden.

Also the first rift/cluster in ACB the templars point out that:

"They become increasingly aware of our existence. We can no longer rely on the divine right of the aristocracy to maintain control. We need a new system, something much more subtle."
After that every rift seems related to capitalism, labour etc.

Another point in favor of the French Revolution:
Ubisoft is a french company http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Now to the most important point, taken from the ACB guide:

"The closing scenes in Juno's vault also reveal two symbols in answer to Desmond's question. The apple's projection of the Masonic Eye is a case in point. A historically recurring signifier of the all-seeing eye of God, the pyramidal form appears on the american dollar bill and was adopted as an emblem of the Freemasons. As for the Phrygian Cap, it is also known as a liberty cap, having come to symbolize freedom and the pursuit of liberty. Shaun would know that the two come together in the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen, a defining radical document of the French Revolution. Is the Apple pointing the way to 18th Century France?"

Isn't that enough for us to at least THINK the next game will be set in the French revolution?
Obviously, we can't be sure since Ubisoft can place the next game wherever it wants, but for now, all our clues lead to the French Revolution.

To sit behind a computer and talk smack is both pretentious and cowardly. and that is the truth. we all enjoy the game. if some people want it in France, that's cool with me. others in America that's cool as well.

I don't know if you notice it, but the first and the second AC have the same feeling about them. I want something new and fresh. They need to go to a scenario far from Europe. Feudal Japan, Imperial China would be REALLY great. Even Ancient Egipt would be good.

tlov7
12-07-2010, 09:24 PM
I still don't understand why people think it's going to be in feudal Japan. Desmond's lineage could not possibly correlate with a Japanese ancester. I believe a comment was made earlier about how Middle Eastern and Italian descendents would not match Desmond's ancestry either, however this statement is extremely ignorant (no offense), because these countries are predominantly caucasian...or at the very least slightly tan...similar to Desmond...hint hint. I still think taking in all the clusters from subject 16 that the next Assassin's Creed will be in Russia. Not sure where they can fit this in Russian history but I'm quite certain Ubisoft is clever enough to do anything. Getting off topic I apologize. Anywho, most if not all of the clusters have something to do with the Stalin era. Gregorivich is mentioned a few times, many pictures of Stalin are shown, Soviet riots and so on. While I'm typing this the possibility of a Cold War assassin is enticing, however this may be to close to the present. I don't think they can really go back in time however so it has to be sometime after the Italian Renaissance. To wrap it all up Altair and Ezio are sick as hell names...well imagine how sick of a Russian name they can create...

There has been extensive discussion in the forums about the ACIII subject, from location, to weapons, to ancestor identity and all possible details involving the end of the trilogy. The ninja topic and Japan location in particular has been the subject of many repetitive threads even since the time ACII has been launched.
We have streamlined all related discussions in an AC3 and beyond thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/6831010868/p/21) that is already in its second installment.
Please use that thread from now on for all AC3 theories, this will help keep the forum free of too many threads on this same subject.

Thanks.
