Kabouter said:Should've been 17th century Amsterdam. Although I suppose they should do the Dutch Republic justice and make AC3 all about that .
Mush said:Pretty disappointed really. One of the main draws of the Assassin's Creed series is it's different locales and use of characters for that time period. If they're just going to reuse Ezio and Italy it would be a shame :/ Also, if Ubi is really handing this off to Shanghai, I hope Patrice Desliets stays on or at least has some input on the game.
This is what I'm thinking. It can't possibly be the real AC3 since that doesn't make any sense for the main story. In the eyes of the higher powers Ezio has served his role, he is of no importance anymore for the main quest that lies before Desmond. The real AC3 should be further along in the future in a different time and place and not with Ezio, but another ancestor.Althoran said:So this could be AC2: Rome or DLC? Sounds good to me either way. I loved AC2.
But I hear some great ideas here about AC-style games in other eras and places.
Hopefully someone from Ubisoft reads this thread and uses those ideas to make some great games.
Kurosaki Ichigo said:Does anyone know what is Assassins Creed 2 Lineage Edition? No search isn't helping, I saw it being trademarked and then found it in amazon.de. It seems its a complete(?) AC2 with the DLC? Out on March 4th. Maybe its just a new version unrated for Germany, dunno.
I like this idea.TehSw1tch said:I was really, really really hoping for London, at the dawn of the industrial age...
But this is cool too.
Lionheart1827 said:I totally feel the same way. AC2s settings and characters were awesome, but if they are just setting AC3 in rome, come on. If this is DLC then hell yeah! If its just a side game to AC2 then hell yeah! But I was really hoping for a new time period and locale rather than italy again. If the very very beginning of AC3 takes the role of ezio in rome and then later on the majority of the game is set in a new time period and character, that would work well.
And to the people hoping for a WW2 setting, forget it. I believe they already have said they will not bring the setting to that period.
EDIT-Just saw that thread on Ubisoft releasing franchise titles every 12-18 months. If AC3 is the last in the series than I hope its not all set in italy. However, if they are planning lots of main sequels(like AC4/5) and they are releasing them within a year apart, then it MIGHT not be so bad. However, I'm still not liking this at all.

hamchan said:Since everyone else has said it I'll say it too; this probably isn't Assassin's Creed 3 but AC2-2. I feel an AC2-2 is rather unnecessary. AC2 pretty much ended perfectly in regards to Ezio's story, I have no desire to find out what happens after.

Jack The Ripper will allow players to jump into the shoes of the legendary murderer, but with a different perspective. Jack actually hunts down evil demons living inside human souls, with a variety of over the top weapons and slow-mo "bullet time".
ymmv said:There are a lot more interesting time periods. What about 17th century France, the time of the Three Musketeers? I'd love to climb the Notre Dame and Sacre-Coeur or explore Versailles...
MYE said:I've asking for a good Jack the Ripper game for YEARS.
The setting and atmosphere would be amazing if done right.
I just finish watching the entire Rome series and was hoping a game was set in Ancient Rome.
jett said:Wat? Back to rennaissance italy? With Ezio? What for?
Please don't run this into the ground Ubisoft.
Or in the 18th century during the French Revolution like rumour (aka Pachter) suggested. Heck, I wouldn't have minded if the producers decided there were Japanese roots somewhere in Desmond's family tree and took the game to Japan during the Sengoku period ("Ninja" Assassin's Creed).
Italy though, that's so last year. Oh well, at least they'll be able to reuse all their old art assets.
