Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s game director Ashraf Ismail has stated that he would love to explore Egypt in a future Assassin’s Creed title.
“The President of the company has said that we will ship an annual title, so it’s out there. We’ve been on this game for almost two years; it’ll be two and a half when we ship. I would say one of the best things we have going for us is how we can play with history. History is something that is rooted in all of us; we all have a deeper connection to it. So there’s a lot of interesting periods and time places we haven’t been to that I would to see,” he told Examiner.
“I’m not saying we are going there,” Ismail continued. “But one day I would love to explore Egypt as a setting for this game. Ancient Egypt could be a really cool place. We have a really cool explanation for how we can do this, and it is with this Animus device that allows us to go to anytime in history.”
Earlier this week Ubisoft revealed that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag would include around five hours of optional modern day content, which will allow players to discover what happened to Desmond following the events of Assassin’s Creed III.
