Assassin’s Creed V Won’t Be Set In Japan, But Is Set In Jade Raymond’s Favourite Historical Era

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.

    1. is it every 3 years or 2? if 2 then that’s quite too quick :/. though better than 10 monthly COD and fifa and all the DLCS.

      1. We have one a year the last two years on the consoles and 1 original on the Vita. It would be nice to catch my breath before they start talking about another sequel.

      2. Not to say they are bad games or anything, they are pretty fun. Just need a little time for the want to come back.

  1. ww2 japan when they invade china maybe lol.

    though I would prefer it to be at 1600-1700 Poland and Lithuania’s Commonwealth with the WINGED hussars especially when they saved EU from the eastern ottoman invasion.

    though at end Russia autsria and Prussia attacked as all and we got defeated. Britain was in a lucky place all the time……

    though AC5(or 6 later) would be awesome based around that and if they had to do some of the sieges ect ect ect ect ect etc and fight on winged horses, though at the same time be a assassin. :D

      1. they made pretty clear in AC4 (read the emails on the PCs you can hack) that a ww2 setting won’t happen anytime soon
        it’s basically an easter egg telling you what settings won’t come

    1. WW2 is too mainstream, I reckon Napoleon era (especially considering that Ubisoft IS a French business) or maybe something really old, like ancient Greece. Honestly, I’m a bit sick of the focus of guns in games.

      1. Agreed…

        We already have 6000 different CoDs and BF for that…

      2. I’m going to play Mario Kart 7 tomorrow evening a bit if you want to “rumble”…

    1. egypt? when?
      nothing particularly interesting happened there since the 11th century

      and besides we already had an arabic setting

    2. Make it be Egypt AND Greece, and the game will give you a choice as to which side the Assassin’s Order will be fully established, either with you killing Marc Antony, or you killing Cleopatra (she committed suicide in history, but come on, you as the Assassin might have…convinced her).

      1. Focusing around Greece and Persia back then would make for an epic game! Best time period ever, hands down.

    1. If it’s WW2 then just cancel the game…

      WW2 is the most milked era in everything ever done…

      And the worst part is that humans hasn’t learned much since then…

      1. What about French revolution?
        Tons of interesting things, many many murders, Illuminatis ruling in the background… An epic mess to say the least!

        Plus, it is my country :-D

  2. No Japan!? Narghahahahablah why!? Hugs. Do Mexico. Lol. El assessino que mata a los traficantes de drogas jajajaja!!!!

      1. Un Commandante no puede estar en una posision baja…

        *wink*

        Tienes tu codigo para 3DS? podemos jugar un dia…

  3. What about an outer space Assassin’s Creed based on Neptune! Imagine the being buffeted by 1300 mph winds, poisoned by the deadly methane, and frozen by those -210 degrees Celsius frigid surface temps. The goal would be too reach the 7000 degrees Celsius core, but even then, you would be crushed by the massive amount of pressure. In addition to that, you wouldn’t see shit that far into Neptune. It would be pitch black! Humans are so fragile!

      1. Well obviously, there are some individuals I respect such as Stephen Hawking or Brian Cox…

      2. Mario can never die…

        Even if our empire falls, he would still live on…

      3. I just don’t want him to have an inconvenient space journey. That would be a form of disrespect if I booked him a bad trip…

      4. Well as long as they make it even better than the 2 first games, Mario iwll go from legendary to immortal…

      1. Time to rise…

        Last time it didn’t go so well because that Goddess interfered but now that we are on the same side…

      2. Micro$oft is a bad joke! Bill Gates is a copycat and now the richest person in the world! I’ll never buy any Microshit thing again in my life.

    1. well yeah and it has 1080p something the JOKE x1 doesn’t have and the GPU is the best + has the most storage out of all the consoles and MOST games run at 60fps all the time (most that don’t are third parties……..). ps4 and x1 could do that rathly 70% of the time not like 90 lol. oh wait, x1 cant do it at all since it sisnt even 1080p.

      basically x1 is DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED! ( probably the last I said this………..or first too lol)

  4. I also would love to see Assassin’s Creed during the Wild West, but I’d imagine that there would be a lack of sword fighting. Maybe they could work around that somehow though.

  5. Roman empire, WWII, or Cold War please. I think a more modern setting could help evolve the franchise. Maybe not, who knows?

  6. and it Will be out on Wii U, no it’s cancelled, no it’s still coming, so it’s delayed, sorry no DLC…. ohh it’s cancelled, but we love Nintendo!

    1. Considering that the Ubisoftians are French, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done yet…

      And it certainly was more important than the American one…

      That one was basically Brittish colonists that got tired of being bossed around by their Empire and rebelled against them in order to boss around themselves…

      Pathetic…

    2. Can they please make Napoleon Bonaparte the next Assasin!? I would play the game if he was the next role lol!

  7. Her favorite era, which I bet is the end of monarchy in France and the beginning of the Revolution (is there a girl who doesn’t like Marie Antoinette’s days?)

  8. to much…
    thats more worse then mario.
    i played from a few month AC3
    just for 3 houres…
    it was so boring.
    AC black is the neweat and came last year dezember… and now… AC5
    boah… stop it.

    1. WHy would they stop? It sells like mad! Same with CoD. They won’t stop making either of those games until they stop selling.

    1. Looks like fun but I’d wish Capcom would improve the graphics… The PC version they have is running the CryEngine 3 for Christ sake

  9. They should make another series with the same overall game play as A.C., but takes place in modern times. Though seeing modern day police men chasing you doesn’t sound as exciting for some reason.

    I’m currently playing Assassin’s Creed III (first time playing the series), and I’m totally lost in Boston. Where the HELL do I go? I’ve been wandering around on this stage for hours, killing people and stealing money (I love doing that. LOL), but I don’t know what I’m really supposed to be doing?

  10. To be honest, I don’t think the next AC will be coming to the wiiu. It will most probably be made for the more powerful systems and judging by the sales of all the other ubisoft games, they don’t really have a reason to port it over. In the mean time you fanbous do what you do best , don’t support any developer when they release games and then later bash them when they stop supporting the wiiu

    1. lol…. you act as though I have ever bought and played an Assassin’s Creed game before anyway….

    1. as much as i would love anything relating to either Egypt, Greece or Japan… it has to be a time period set after the crusades because that was the time the assassin’s order was established

  11. People say WWII, but I feel better with WWI about it. Idk, something just feels more right with it being for the first one. That said, I won’t complain either way. Assassins Creed games have never captured me for some reason, so I guess it doesn’t matter for me. I still like to see the historical references though

  12. Would about the Trojan war sneaking inside the city of Troy like you could be in a mission where you hide in the wooden horse and sneak in the city to assassinate the king or something that would be cool
