The screenshot was taken from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, so we can call it official.
We have seen the Holy Land and the 3rd Crusade in the first Assassin’s Creed, the Italian Renaissance in Assassin’s Creed II, the Ottoman Empire in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, the War of Independence in Assassin’s Creed II and some pirates in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
There are these available locations:
13th century – Egypt and Northern Africa – If i remember, the creative director has spoken about it and they think that this location has great places and opportunities to bring a grand action
14th century – Japan – before the announcement of the Black Flag we have heard about a lot of this idea, because the Ubisoft team has thought about it a lot and the Assassin’s Creed: Embers short animated movie with a girl from the far East
18th century – French Revolution – Pretty much the War of the Independence, but it takes place in France and of course in Paris
19th century – Napoleonic Wars; Taiwan – in Europe by the time of Napoleon, freemasonry has been founded by some people. Really interesting connections between those freemasons and the king of those countries. (According to thing I read on the net) A really strange book was sent to all the kings of Europe with all their (Freemasons) goals and future achievements. After Waterloo some people in England called Napoleon victorious and the stock have fallen to almost nothing, some people have bought up everything. Only the Russian tsar could take an action against them. Here comes in the connection with the Russians.
BTW if you have read Assassin’s Creed: The Fall is a comic book you know it is about the fall of the Russian Empire. According to the story by Ubisoft Vlagyimir Lenin was very very close to the Russian assassins, Lenin ordered the execution of the Romanov family.
19th century – American Midwest and New England – not really possible with the current Assassin’s Creed system, because Wild West is based on gun, not swordfight. But it is a nice place: farms, Indians, trains, Mount Rushmore, Great Plains, Great Lakes and so on.
20th century – “Summer of Love” – not possible yet with the current Assassin’s Creed features and mechanics.
In conclusion it really looks like that: 13th century Egypt and Northern Africa, 14th century Japan or the French Revolution. We must add to the party of Northern Africa that the Ubisoft teams has already spoken about that option and they can see great things in that. About the French Revolution if I remember correctly many people though that it is coming in Assassin’s Creed II the same thing with the Japan, but with in connection with Assassin’s Creed IV.
Only one thing is sure with Assassin’s Creed year over year: We must live with the history, but we have to look forward, only forward, and it can be harder and harder.
