    lawman al said:The Assassin' s Creed franchise follows a set formula.

    Pursuit of an elusive target, subsequent elimination of target, hop on the horsie, ride a ton of miles, jump from a tower into a haystack and miraculously survive, attempt to locate those lame fanions and ultimately do it all again in the next iteration.


    Reminds me of the Nancy Drew series.
    Nancy Drew and the mystery of the Golden Obelisk.
    Nancy Drew zombie executioner.
    Nancy Drew Green Beret.

    I am fascinated by people's enthusiasm for old wine in new bottles.

    Atlantis - could get a bit out of the box with making new stuff that's not so history driven, could feel like a new game.
    Ghengis Khan and the horde invasion.
    Sparta/Athens - Greek era against the Persian
    Civil War - similar to AC3 but i think you could expand the area to more than a few cities to really get more out of the game.

    Haha, he has not even finished the storylines in all of the Assassin's Creed games he has started. Dude, if you dislike AC, why play 7 of them?
    Hey Niko, its your cousin! Let's go bowling!

    I'd like for them to delve further into the stories of the assassins mentioned in ACII

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    And ACIII was the worst of the series. Absolutely wretched. I'm glad they've gotten better since although I have yet to play Unity.

    I want an Assassin's Creed game centered around Arthurian Legend. Give me King Arthur and Camelot, Merlin and Knights, chivalry and a code... Perhaps King Arthur as an Assassin and Lancelot a Templar spy? If you overlook the tiny detail of all the above being just a legend, it sounds like what Assassin's Creed games are made of...

    Pretty sure Ubisoft said a long time ago that they'll never take the series to Japan.
    There is no "I" in "team." There also isn't a "u," a "we," an "us," or a "them," so who's playing?

    Seeing as the Muslims wouldn't exist for another 580ish years so neither would templars for the Christians the Egypt setting might be a shot too far back for assassins and templars. Its still possible i suppose as they call cain the first templar but i wonder how they would fix that. Everything looks good except the Japan setting I get why allot of people want it but I'm not the least bit excited for one in japan.

The Templars pre-date Islam. They were involved in the Achaemenid Empire (550 BC), helped Xerxes I in Greece, whilst also present in the Qin Dynasty & Roman Empire.

    Cleopatra was a Templar killed by the Assassin Amunet, as detailed in Assassin's Creed II lore. In Revelations, Ezio visits Amunet's tomb. Julius Caesar was the first major assassination and not much is known about the Assassin's activities from the time of the First Civilization - Roman Empire.

    Guys, whoever wrote this article is a Nostradamus. You were absolutely right about Russia, Egypt, Vikings and partly even the Eden!
