Seems like Japan would be an obvious choice. Ninja's and stuff.

I'd have fun with Shogunate Japan.

The War of the Roses would be interesting too (so long as it isn't written by the same team that did Unity)

I'd love Ancient Rome or the American Civil War but admittedly, we've been to those settings in other time periods, so it may not be as well received.

idk. I really don't want Japan or China. I do wish they'd make AC China into a full game though.

The occupied Paris rift really made me want WW2 for AC. Then we could finally have a rework of the shooting/cover/free aim mechanic. That aspect of AC needs to be like more mainstream third person shooters, like Ghost Recon, and, again, I mean in terms of the aiming/shooting/cover mechanic.

As well, they'd need to have a story that makes sense (unlike some of Unity's story). The Assassins would have to have some real targets/goals that make sense as well. The Templars can't be Nazis, because that'd clash with their portrayal and dev comments on them (specifically during AC3's development, where they said the Templars didn't support things like slavery. Given the presence of prominent women and minorities in Templar ranks, I'd say they also aren't racist, sexist, or genocidal either. As such, they can't be Nazis, although they should be embedded within the Third Reich). They could be behind the attempted, but failed coup. But there would be Templars involved with certain aspects of the German, British, and American governments/militaries, certainly. The Templars could influence Hitler to begin archaeological digs for First Civ tech, for example. idk. I just really liked the atmosphere of just that small Occupied Paris section of the game. Maybe it's just me missing WW2 games like the MOH franchise... plus, Chris Tilton's music sounds like Michael Giacchino's music, so there's that as well.

Ancient Rome would not resemble Renaissance Rome at all though, aside from the Pantheon being mostly the same.

How about this for an idea? The age were Rome transforms from a Republic to an Empire, so roughly 27BC, and it be where the Templar and Assassin orders begin. The Assassin's wanting the continuation of the Republic and the Templars seeing up the Empire to better care for the citizens. This would predate AC1 by hundreds of years and show the birth of the two ideals.

Ancient Babylon/Assyria/Sumer.
Mughal India.

This is from the assassin's creed wiki

Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party, also known as the Nazi Party, serving as Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945.

By the 1930s, Hitler was under the influence of the Templar Order, obtaining an Apple of Eden from Templar industrialist Henry Ford, intending for him to use it to start World War II.[1] Alongside fellow Templar puppet Joseph Stalin, Hitler brought on the turmoil and fear necessary for Abstergo Industries to take control of the working population.[2]

On 30 April 1945, at the end of the war, Hitler executed his body double inside the Führerbunker and planned to meet Winston Churchill with the Apple of Eden at a rendezvous point. However, upon leaving the bunker, Hitler was assassinated by the Assassins.[3]

I'd have fun with Shogunate Japan.

That is also a dream setting of mine :p

It is not all daimyos, shoguns and samurai. The Portuguese Jesuit priests could be the Templars and the Assassins could be their own entity (they could induct lowly peasants into the order). Certain ninja or samurai clans could be allies of the Assassins.

I would also like to see:

- Victorian England
- Ottoman Tunisia
- Imperial China/Korea
- Ancient Greece

Medieval Europe, Viking times (sailing game), Ancient Rome, Ancient Egypt, Medieval China, Feudal Japan, American Civil War, and Spanish Inquisition are all periods I'd be immensely excited for, but I'm confident Ubisoft could a do a lot with more obscure eras too.

11-22-2014, 10:22 PM
Ancient Greece during the Greco-Persian Wars.

Ancient Rome during the reign of Julius Cesar, with the main character being close to Brutus and participating at Caesar'assassination.

Victorian England ( it woul be epic....the story could talk about the anarchism and comunism that grew inside the factories, it could show the horrible conditations that many workers lived in or show the consequences of the Industrial Revolution. )

Eastern Europe during World War I, with the main character being a Templar that is betrayed by his own Order and he joins the Assassins.

And I want to see the project 1666 Amsterdam becoming an AC Game. I want to go to Renaisscence again and Amsterdam is beautiful.

There were many hints about Vikings in AC Rogue, I don't know if they did that on purpose or is just a coincidence. I hope the Dead Kings DLC give us some hints about the next AC Game.

Problem with a Viking based game though is that the cities wouldn't be very good unfortunatly. Even if you sailed to Britain the cities would feel a bit lacking.

As for my top 6 dream settings:

Spain and Portugal during the Reconquista (and if possible, include Morocco)
Thirty Years War
Cambodia during the times of the Khmer Empire
Korea around the time of the Japanese Invasions of Korea of 1592
Siberia sometime after the Decemberist Revolt
Latvia, Estonia and part of western Russia during the Livonian War

As for others mentioned here: I'd prefer Elizabethan to Victorian. More interesting figures, a lot of stuff to recreate before the fire of 1666, and it's conspiracy central. I'd find it more interesting than Victorian England, myself. And you could add Ireland with ease, too, which would mean more fun stuff to do. I've mentioned Japan already, which would have a place in the Japanese Invasions of Korea and it'd fit with a nice return of naval combat if it's been out for a while by then. As for Ancient Rome, I've mentioned that the cities in North Africa during the times of the Roman Empire would be great. Carthage alone would be worth it.

And as for WW2, I've been against the idea, but simply because I want Guatemala to be in a game for once, I'd say seeing this series' take on Jorge Ubico's dictatorship and the short lived Ten Years of Spring (1931-1954). Frankly, I feel that could work pretty well and there's enough room for Ubi to play with that. There's a lot of things that can be modified to fit with the Templar-Assassin conflict without too much difficulty. You've got things like Ubico's constant contact with the United Fruit Company which could be easily shown as Templars; at least 25 coup attempts to take down the man who took over, Arevalo; Arana's mysterious death in 1949, Eisenhower launching operation PBSUCCESS to remove Jacobo Arbenz from presidency... I mean, c'mon, it'd be kinda cool, and Guatemala city around that time would be neat.

I guess...but it would kind of remove the historical tourism aspect of the series if all you're doing is just running through forests and climbing mountains. It wouldn't feel very AC.

Major historical events would also be few and far between, so really al you would have in the end would be some pretty natural landscapes, cool weapons/armor and a cool looking lead. It just doesn't sound very intriguing for an AC game.

That and it just doesn't sound very appealing to me personally.

Keep in mind the fall of the Roman Republic was nearly 100 years before the colosseum was even started so it would be a totally different look. It would probably end with the death of Julius Caesar and start before his birth. And with the addition of naval combat sailing to Africa, the eastern providences, and even Spain, France, England, and Germany or at least where they are today would be interesting. And think about it, you start off the game working as one group to better the lives of people. The would be Assassins to free people and the would be Templars to show, force, people to live a "better" life. And thus the murder of Julius Caesar be the catalyst to create the two different sides. Add to that the massive expansion of the Republic find the first of the First Civilization Artifacts. And then continue so as to find more and shape the two sides. I think it could be a cool origin story and have tons of different locals that would look cool.

You can still see loads of "Pirate's Creed" comments get thrown around here and there.

Also AC4 still had plenty of major historical events aswell as Havana. A viking game though....not really.

The problem with Caesar's Rome though is that there's not too many recognizable landmarks.

I mean the Forum at that time for example would look like this:

I like to fool myself in to believing that Lisbon and all other references to it are a hint for the Peninsular War game next year which would include the full reconstructed Lisbon.

Or maybe a hint to India since in Lisbon's database entry they kinda randomly mention Vasco da Gama's Templar sponsored expeditions to India.

Just putting in my two cents about where I'd like the game to explore.

I'd like to have AC tie up the "loose ends", they introduced the six great assassins in AC2 so why not use these character to make a game.

- Persia (Iran): Achaemenid Empire 550-330BC
- Babylon (Iraq): Argead dynasty 700-310BC maybe ending with the assassination of Alexander the Great and it's aftermath
- China: Qin Dynasty 221-206 or Legend of the three Kingdoms, we could have the Qin Dynasty as a prelude, like in Unity
- Mongolia: The rise and fall of Genghis Khan
- Egypt: The Ptolimic Dynasty ending with the assassination of Cleopatra and surrender to the Roman Empire
- Italy: Ancient Rome: The Roman Empire; a prelude with Romolus and Remus, the main game is played during the civil war and Caesar's assassination with Caligula's assassination as an epilogue/DLC
- Japan: The Warring States period. A lot of people wants this, myself included
- Germany: World War II; I know this is a "modern" setting, however if a setting is placed in WWII, it should be in Germany with the German Brotherhood
- Scandinavia: Vikings; this should just become a game NOW!
- India: British Raj; Also on my wanted list.
- Greece: Classical Greece; If they do this one, I'd like them to include the Persian Wars and Peloponnesian Wars along with Plato and Aristotle as historic figures.
- Hungary: The Conquest of Atilla the Hun;
- Tunisia: The Punic Wars, it would be awesome if elephant climbing/riding was present.

Betting right now that next year's last-gen game will be another sailing game where you play as Eseosa with Connor and Shay appearances.

So here is my two cents folks!

Spoilers:

Next AC will be set in Indian sub-continent.

City of Mysore will be an important location. King Tipu Sultan and Maharaja Ranjit Singh will also be in it and most likely during the time period of pre-British Raj when the East India Company was just setting up its roots. Check out AC: Brahman and then the clues left in AC: Rogue. An email from Melanie Lamay (Tablet Document 14) and Otso Berg's Diary titled "Koh-i-Noor" from The Phoenix Project. Kohinoor is a diamond (in reality and currently possessed by Queen Elizabeth II of UK) and re-imagined being as a piece of Eden possessing incredible power and hence its previous owners have been able to leave a great mark in history. In the recording Berg even says that they should continue monitoring any Assassin activities.

Before Unity came out I knew that the next AC was going to be involving Napoleon Bonaparte by playing AC Freedom Cry but I could not get my thoughts out to the public. But here I am trying it again. Mark my word!

I like Victorian London and meet Jack the Ripper in East London. Assassin bad Nobles and do private detectives around
Baker Street (I know Sherlock Holmes is fiction, but nice to see him in the game)
Traveling around the country by train, visiting beautiful castles. I'm sure there are a LOT of things to do as side missions.

I would like to see a medieval timespan AC. Also, the London theory with Jack the Ripper.....maybe he was an Assassin setup by the Templars because he was interfering. Feudal Japan would be a good time period as well. I do know that the funnest to play so far was ACIII...... and I only say that because there was a good mix of urban gameplay mixed in with navy battles. The wilderness I could have lived without. Just sayin, lol.

I'm not sure how likely it is, not having played Unity, but for others who've played it: How likely does a sequel taking place in the War of the Second Coalition sound? Maybe even without naval they could just add ways to travel between Marseille, Valletta and Alexandria. So yeah, does that sound any likely? I've seen mentions of the Peninsular War being likely, too, but this could be neat as well.
