World War II Setting for Assassin’s Creed III?

According to the latest issue of Xbox 360 world, Ubisoft’s Sébastien Puel  has said they’ve “had discussions” about setting the next Assassin’s Creed game in World War II, this time with a female lead role. He also said that it’d make sense for a woman to be the hired hits in a WWII era game with the economies of France and Britian at the time ran by women.

“Where would that make sense? We don’t want to just decide we want to change and have a female hero as the first inspiration is always the time period, but if you’re talking about, say, World War II the economies in England and France were run by women because the men were off fighting.

“So maybe in this context you were a woman in England during WWII. Why not? Nothing prevents us from doing it” said Puel.

Assassin’s Creed was originally planned to be a trilogy but Ubisoft has said they’ve widened their focus, “What’s so great about Assassin’s Creed is that we can just expand and expand,” creative director Patrice Fortier told XBW.

  1. I think an Assassin in the American Civil War time period would be pretty interesting. Could play out as Assassins vs. Temp lats/ Unionists vs. Confederates. Could all lead up to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
