Gaming Rumor: Assassin’s Creed 3 To Be Set In Feudal Japan?

October 27th, 2009 1:21 PM | by Jeff Bordeaux | 8 Comments


Talk about counting your chickens.  Assassin’s Creed 2 hasn’t even seen release and we are already hearing about a 3rd installment.  Will that many people blindly purchase this game like the did 2 years ago?

Not to be a naysayer, I want Ass2 to be a quality game but I won’t believe it until I play it.  A German gaming show named PLAYD had Ubisoft’s Philippe Bergeron on the program who said in regards to a possible Assassin’s Creed 3 setting:

There are two things that come to mind: There is medieval Europe, which would be very interesting trying to play a King Arthur story line. Another one that is a personal favorite of a lot of people on the floor is feudal Japan, which is something that would be very interesting just culturally to discover and I think also to make players discover as well.

Huh.  I don’t know which one would be cooler.  What do you think?

    JAPAN Definitely, didn’t they already do like kingz and stuffz in the first one? Definitely Japan, it wad have a cool free running setting, but it would be more challenging.

    medieval europe definately!!!!!!! :)

    I was only kidding. Feudal Japan is the best possible setting for AC3… One word: Samurai.

    lionel kaka, not a samurai. a ninja.

    I was thinking of a setting when the Mongols were invading China, or some king of setting in the Himalaya area. Japan would be cool, but there is too much risk in my opinion of Ubisoft making the assassin a cliché ninja.

    I think it will be neither. It won’t go back in time, seen the time ezio lives is a little before 1500 A.D.
    The most likely it will take most place in modern world with Desmont.
