Ubisoft Pondering Feudal Japan as Possible Assassin’s Creed Setting

Now that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is available to the masses, speculation about what the next setting is for the next installment in the open-world stealth series has officially begun, thanks to an interview VG247 had with Black Flag Creative Director Jean Guesdon.

Guesdon left open the possibility that Feudal Japan could be a possible future setting for a future Assassin’s Creed game. “Feudal Japan remains — like numerous other time periods and locations — a possible future setting for the franchise because thanks to the Animus.” At the same time, Guesdon would not commit to Feudal Japan as the next setting, since “the entire human history is our playground.”

The original Assassin’s Creed took place during the Third Crusade, while Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations took place during the Renaissance. Finally, Assassin’s Creed III, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag took place during the Colonial Era. As such, having Feudal Japan as a possible future setting in a future Assassin’s Creed game is not as far-fetched as it may seem.
