A Chinese assassin would be awesome but i doubt that game ever gets made. Im replaying AC1 to max out achievements and wow the voice actor for Altaie blows.

Altair was the best AC character.

Euro-centric doesn't mean in Europe, just related to Europe. The 3rd Crusade and the American revolution would fall in this category IMO.

And your example of a non Euro-centric location is São Paulo? A city founded by Europeans populated by European immigrants?

Okay.

They featured one named Zhao Jun in a minimovie that detail's Ezio's life as an old man and his death. AC3 made a reference to her with the rope dart.

Despite that, it'd be cool if it was set in mid 1900s China as it was not as developed as other powerhouses at the time.

I was thinking more like the Warring States period or some older dynastic period. No reason AC has to keep moving forward in time as far as the Assassins go.

So I decided to buy Assassin's Creed 3 on Amazon the other day. Got the package in the mail and realized I ordered it for PS3 instead of the 360 :

That's cool AC is making a return. The ACIII ended so anti climatic. I don't want another European setting. Make it in Africa, Asia, or another country in the Americas.

Im not huge fan of another european setting, but it was better than boston and ny. I would love south america or asia. AC Brotherhood had the best environment.

It seems like I really should play brotherhood.


Russia would be cool. Perhaps during the Bulshavik Revolution / WWI era. Or even more modern times. Set it in the 70s during the cold war. A lot of great conspiracy plot lines they could play off of in there, and the architecture is awesome.
The only problem is that those games would require a certain amount of gunplay that the series just hasn't shown much desire to explore as a mechanic.

Brotherhood was my favorite AC game. Definitely recommend it.

French Revolution could be a natural next game if the timeline continues going forward in time.

I can't believe you haven't played brotherhood, it has less of the side stuff to do if I remember correctly. Only one I beat at 90%+
