Whether you're a consumer, developer, publisher or just plain fan of the Assassin's Creed franchise, one of the most enjoyable things to discuss is what would be a great time period and location for the next Assassin's Creed installment.
Earlier this year, we spoke with the game director of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Ashraf Ismail and he thought it would be fun to see what the Assassin's Creed world would be like in Egypt. An intriguing setting that would be for a future iteration, and there are so many more.
Recently, Examiner.com had the chance to speak exclusively with Ubisoft North America President Laurent Detoc about what it would be like and why a development team has never tackled an open-world game that is set in Paris.
"There are numerous cities, both present day and throughout history, that could be an outstanding setting for any number of our key franchises.
"Right now, for example, we have Watch Dogs set in Chicago, The Crew set all across the U.S. and The Division set in New York City.
"As a French company based in Paris, I’m sure the first development team to tackle that city will have little margin for error," Detoc said.
With Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag now behind us, the wonderment of where the next game will take place, who will be the protagonist and many others things start to come up.
Ubisoft has recently been sending out surveys to people, checking their temperatures on things they do and do not want to see from future Assassin's Creed installments. We'll find out what's next for the Assassin's Creed franchise soon enough.
