Jade Raymond, the Managing Director of Ubisoft Toronto, has told Adweek that Assassin’s Creed V won’t be set in feudal Japan, but will instead be set in her favourite historical era. Unfortunately Raymond wouldn’t divulge any further details on the historical setting.
Assassin’s Creed has explored the Crusades, the Renaissance, American Revolution and most recently pirates. The fifth installment will feature her favorite historical era, Raymond says, but she can’t even give a hint of what that is because it would ruin the surprise. She did dispel the rumor that it is set at the end of the samurai age in Japan. That said, she thinks that would be a cool idea.
