Oh, boy! I love these moments when game developers or publishers start making plans for a sequel to a game that wasn’t released yet… Unfortunately this happens with Assassin’s Creed III, even though “plans” might be a bit too much to say and, why not admit it, the fact that there will be a third in what seems to become a huge franchise is not a huge surprise either. Still, some secrecy would’ve helped.
But this was not the case with Ubisoft who not only thought about Assassin’s Creed III, but are also considering possible twists in the story – like a female assassin for the third adventure, something that, in my opinion, could harm the game by making it way too “commercial,” but what could also mean a huge boost in sales due to the “unexpected” twist. Probably it’s Ubisoft who knows best.
Until then, they’re just considering options: “We’ve had discussions on [the topic of a female assassin],” said game’s producer Sebastien Puel, according to 1UP. “It could be really interesting but we’d need to find the right time period and place for that. 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.”
Hopefully they will manage to get over the World War II era since most gamers started to hate that period probably just as much as those who took part in the conflict – for different reasons, obviously. But since the producer admitted that Ubisoft could do 35 Assassin’s Creed games if they wanted to, it only seems natural that sooner or later we’ll have one set in the WWII. Hopefully later.
Until then, we still need to get Assassin’s Creed II now on November 17 and a third game in a series with a female main character. Sounds nice or not?
