Illustration for article titled Where's the Next Assassin's Creed? Select One Answer

Assassin's Creed has Italy and the Middle East covered. It's time for the series to spread its wings. What locale will Assassin's Creed III be set in? Your guess is good as mine. But, if this survey is to be believed, let's make an educated guess.


A reader of website Empire State Gamer apparently took part in an online survey, which asked the following question:

Among the following propositions, in which of the following historical periods and locations would you like one of the next Assassin's Creed games to take place?

•The violent conflicts of the Imperial Dynasties in Medieval China
• The advent of the mighty British Empire during Victorian England
• The culmination of the Pharaoh Reign in Ancient Egypt
• The invasion of the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors
• The confrontation between British colonists and native Americans during The American Revolution
• The overthrow of the Tsar Empire by the Communists during the Russian Revolution
• The Warlord Battles in Feudal Japan
• The rise of Caesar's Empire in Ancient Rome

Question: Why can't one of these games be set during the American Civil War with awesome hats and awesome moustaches and an inevitable Abe Lincoln cameo?

-China is.. intriguing.., but it is far off to western audience and other options would be awesomer..

-Victorian British Empire? My first choice of the available hear. Some great European city from 17. cent onward to 1. WW.

-Pharaoh Egypt? Meh, too close to AC1..

-Americas and Conquistadors? Now where would an Assassin climb? on the pyramids? boring..

-Colonists vs. indians? - ditto.

-Russia before 1. WW? Second awesomest entry!

-Caesar time? Meh, close to AC1 and AC2.. Overplayed.

-American war? Third best. Though I'd much more like vast megalopoli like Paris or Vienna or London, the setting is intriguing and there could be lots of interesting historic figures, but.. to common, too risk free, not as AC itself as..
