Warning: Potential Spoilers
It was announced by Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot that the next installment of Assassin’s Creed will be featuring a new hero and a new time period. As some of you may know, Assassin’s Creed III left the current protagonist, well, kicking the bucket. Nevertheless, it would seem like we will not be seeing sequels to Assassin’s Creed III’s storyline like we have seen for Ezio Auditore’s arc.
There will, of course, be a new team developing the new Assassin’s Creed game, much like how Activision uses different developers to develop the yearly installment of Call of Duty games. This process allows each developing team to have more time to develop each game, alternating each year to allow more developing time. The next game, of course, should be out by April 2014, so we may have an absence of Assassin’s Creed game in 2013.
So, speculation time! What’s the next time period? Who’ll be the next protagonist? Will the new story be connected to the storyline set by the previous Assassin’s Creed game, or will the storyline take place years after the events of the previous games? Personally, our money is on an ancient Chinese time period, with a protagonist loosely tied to Desmond Miles, but taking place a few years after the events of Assassin’s Creed III. Put your thoughts below!
