It was announced last year that Desmond Miles’ story will be concluded some time this year, prompting some to fear that the Assassin’s Creed series was going to suffer from the Call of Duty game-a-year syndrome. However after the success of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations those fears have gone unfounded, and Ubisoft has been dropping some hints to the location of Assassin’s Creed 3.
Ubisoft have confirmed that this new installment will have a new main character, to find out what happens to Ezio you must watch the short film Assassin’s Creed: Embers. Similarly, CVG‘s inside man has told them that it will be set during the 18th century and this will be publicly announced before the end of Ubisoft’s fiscal year on March 31st. Depending how you see it, an American setting may have been hinted at in the Da Vinci Disappearance DLC for Brotherhood where an Apple of Eden generated globe seemingly hovered over America. But, the biggest indicator was a survey produced by Ubisoft which asked fans where they would like the next instalment to take place. Options included Medieval China, Victorian England and of course The American Revolution.
However Medieval China could equally be a possibility. For those who have seen Embers, Ezio is joined by Chinese Master Assassin Shao Jun who has come to Florence to seek help and advice from the Italian mentor. Shao Jun returns to China in order to liberate her people, having been educated by Ezio. So Medieval China or America in revolution? Which would you prefer?
