Jade Raymond has provided some comments in regards to the setting of the upcoming “Assassin’s Creed 5,” which is expected to come out later this year. According to a report from Softpedia on Feb. 26, the producer behind the first two games of the series confirmed that the fifth numbered entry won’t be set in Japan as previously rumored.
Although she knows when and where the next video game will be taking place, she won’t be ruining the surprise. Jade Raymond did hint that Ubisoft is trying to develop a “meta-story that could live on for many years in games and TV.” You can find some screens from “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” in the slideshow located to the left side of this article and her comments below (courtesy of Adweek and Softpedia):
When we’re building a franchise, we’re thinking of a whole universe and how we’re developing a meta-story that could live on for many years in games and TV. If the story has nowhere to go, then you end up with the video game equivalent of The Matrix 2 or something where it’s never going to be quite as genius.
“Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” was released in late 2013 for the Nintendo Wii U, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. “Assassin’s Creed 5” should also come out on the same platforms later this year. Ubisoft is expected to announce the next game in the series sometime before the E3 2014 event in June.
The aforesaid “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” was announced in the spring season of last year with a debut cinematic trailer. In addition to “Assassin’s Creed 5,” Ubisoft is also planning to release “Watch Dogs” in 2014.
