New Assassin's Creed Rumor

Comicbook.com has rumored details on the next installment in the Assassin's Creed series, saying they "have started to intercept the first rumors about it from several sources linked to Ubisoft." VG247 notes the author's bona fides, saying Liam Robertson "is mostly known for his work on Unseen64 uncovering cancelled and lost games," though Robertson still warns at the outset to take this with a grain of salt. Word is the game will be set in ancient Greece, saying this may be based on ideas originally cooked up for Assassin's Creed Origins. They also note a tweet from Ubisoft art director Raphael Lacoste showing his recent vacation in Greece may have been a scouting trip for this project, but add they are only being partly serious, so we are partly chuckling. They conclude by noting their primary sources for this rumor previously provided accurate scoops on the development of Assassin's Creed Origins.

Ancient Greece? Meh.

I still can't understand why Ubisoft won't do the AC:Japan, set in the days of Ninja and Samurai like everyone has been clamoring for the last decade...

Maybe because that era is pretty stagnant and not especially interesting historically. It's like setting an AC game in the dark ages of Europe. No big revolutions occurring. No well-known historical characters to meet. Yeah, combat would be good, but what else is going on? Why should your average gamer care about some in-fighting between Japanese houses? It just seems like a depressing time and having Samurai and Ninjas as the main draw might be cliché. Not to mention that Asian culture is kind of a turn-off to most Westerners. I also don't see it really fitting into the whole AC universe. I haven't played Origins, but when have they alluded to Japan or even Asia in the series? It seems like it would be a out of place.

That's not to say that they can't or won't make a good game set there, but maybe the the clamoring is exaggerated by a small minority. I'm sure they have people evaluating a lot of different settings, so who knows.
