Fancy an Assassin’s Creed game set in World War II, ancient Egypt or feudal Japan? If that’s the case, then we suggest you don’t hold your breath; Ubisoft’s Alex Hutchinson feels they’re “boring” locations that he doesn’t particularly want the series to adopt.
Speaking with the chaps at OXM U.K. in regards to whether Ubisoft considered alternate settings to Assassin’s Creed III’s American Revolution backdrop, creative director Hutchinson replied:
“People on the Internet suggest the most boring settings,” adding “The three most wanted are WWII, feudal Japan and Egypt. They’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.”
Despite this, he did add that he’d be keen on taking the series to India.
“[Assassin’s Creed writer Corey May] really wants to do India,” he said. “I would too. I’d really love to do the Raj.”
Assassin’s Creed III is scheduled to ship in October 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a PC and Wii U version to follow at a later date.
