Assassin's Creed 3 sequel depends on feedback, says Ubisoft

Speaking to Eurogamer, Julien Laferrière, associate producer of Assassin's Creed 3, said that AC3 could receive a sequel or two if the fans want them.
Julien said that Assassin's Creed 2 received so many sequels, because fans adored Ezio Auditore, and AC3 might have something similar in store for it if Connor is as beloved as Ezio. However, this isn't saying that anything is, or is not, in the works at this point; Julien had this to say:
"For Assassin's Creed 3 we got three years, and I think it shows. Assassin's Creed 3 is the product of three years of development, but [because of that] we also now have a new engine, AnvilNext. It's tough to answer that without compromising anything. I can't really answer that question because there's so many implications."
If Connor's story really does become as developed as Ezio's did, then the notion would raise a lot of questions. Granted, this is all speculation, so it's less than a grain of salt at this point, but how far would the story go into American history if AC3 had sequels?

I love the AC games, but I seriously hope theres no more AC2-like sequels.
AC 2 was great, couldnt put it down. Was pissed two chapters were missing. AC:B got burnt out near the end, AC:R I had to force myself to finish it.. I got bored of the same gameplay with little tweaks.

Oh my god please just let it be man. Why cant they just leave well enough alone? It's like they NEED to take any success and just milk it and recycle instead of moving on and making something different and better. There's nothing wrong with having sequels but God...dont make it so obvious that the fans are the ones dictating the direction of your story man. Damn. They need to just let the good stories burn out and not fade away. And its not always good for us because they'll just start doing more and more cliffhangers.
I will buy AC3 though, it looks damn good. However...
I WANT MY EDO JAPAN NINJAS!!!!!!!

The next game seriously needs to be in feudal-era Japan. I would pay so much money for that.

I'd looove an AC with the subject of ending slavery in the US. That would mean a too big'a jump for an AC 3 sequel with Connor (Connor would be about 150 to take part in both wars), but there must be some way around that.I know that the feudal Japan theme has a lot of fans, but I just don't see it. It would be awesome, don't get me wrong. But considering how the franchise relies so heavily on history and fact on which to base their fiction, I just don't see how they could place the templars in Japan at that time. Of course its tempting to be a friggin' ninja in AC, but as soon as the franchise starts compromising its story telling, I think the whole series wouldn't have that much originality left. AC 4 would probably have to be back in europe or africa when it comes to the story.

@4 I have no idea how you figure it'd be acceptable to have the story take place in Africa (an idea that didnt sound too bad) but turn around and say it'd be impossible for them to place the story in Japan. Ubisoft were the ones who said themselves since the end of AC1 that they were considering a move to Japan. Do you not think they wouldnt be capable of having the story make sense? Who says they have to stick with Desmond for every story? What if something happens in AC3 where desmond goes missing, and you take the reigns as another animus compatible person, play through the games using his memories and then another AC game (it would be AC5 at that point) connects both Desmond AND that guy. Maybe they find some sort of intersection in their lineages and find a time when both had ancestors who came into contact with each other and we can online coop through the story mode with both of them. This isnt very likely but I came up with that in five minutes and it already begins to take shape. The story doesnt HAVE to stay in Europe, people voyaged all over the place in the centuries past, nothing is concrete. And what the heII kind of Assassin could've existed through the Reconstruction period or the few decades prior? A slave assassin? Yeah if thats what you mean...not really feeling that.

PLEASE, no more. I'm looking forward to Assassin's Creed III, then I want a break. No more Assassin's Creed games for a couple of years, then, if there are some really good ideas floating about, give us some spin-offs using the AC formula throughout different periods in history. But no more for now.
