Here's a tiny interview from joystiq. Hope it hasn't been posted!

Assassin's Creed 2 producer sees franchise expanding beyond a trilogy, maybe into WWII

When asked whether or not the Assassin's Creed series would be getting a third installment, Assassin's Creed 2 producer Sébastien Puel thinks the answer almost goes without saying. "I'm often asked if we're doing a third game after ACII... I mean, we could do 35 of these," he (hopefully) exaggerates to Xbox World 360 in the mag's latest issue (via CVG). When the game's creative director told us the second game would be ending with a cliffhanger, we didn't know he meant we'd have to play 35 games to resolve it -- that's approximately 35,000 assassinated fools, by our estimations.

Explaining his hyperbole further, Puel admits that a female assassin isn't out of the question, even confirming "We've had discussions on that very topic." Still, the Ubisoft producer doesn't want to switch the protagonist's gender without a good reason. "World War II, the economies in England and France were run by women because the men were off fighting ... we don't want to just decide we want to change and have a female hero, as the first inspiration is always the time period." To read the full interview in its original context, pick up the latest issue of Xbox World 360 (if you're in the UK, that is).

When I heard the whole world war 2, woman, assassin thing. I was like wow, that sounds like that one game I heard of called velvet assassin. I don't personally think the idea is great. Not the woman part but the whole thing about world war 2. bleh. I want it before the time of modern guns.

a woman assassin could be interesting, where you are lucy instead of desmond, or maybe a few animus sequences when lucy gets in instead of desmond?

That wasn't an idea... it was a point he was trying to make (developer), and WW2 was an example. I would hope paid, professional writers/developers/designers could come up with a better idea than that.

I really hope that AC3 is set in the last years of the victorian era, in London. That is my favourite time period, and with the industrial revolution it makes sense to me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

If you read the thing in full context, it's transparent that the reporter is putting words in his mouth. The reporter suggested a female assassin, the guy said "theoretically that could work, but you need a context that makes sense". Hardly any evidence to think they're seriously considering it. Just another weak journalistic effort to drum up interest about nothing.

Exactly; the quote wasn't meant to state that there was going to be a WW2 game (because there is not enough of them already), but the flexibility that the concept of Assassins Creed provides.

Hi everyone -let's keep all the third AC installment discussions in the existing AC3 thread (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/5251069024/m/4571090477/p/1).

It is a little too early on to have multiple threads on the third installment, when the second one isn't out yet.

Please continue discussions in there.
Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
