THE BUZZ: Assassin’s Creed creative director Alex Hutchinson has expressed that World War 2, Egypt and Japan would make boring backdrops for the franchise.

In an interview with OXM he mentioned that these are the most requested locations, but “they’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.”

“People on the internet suggest the most boring settings,” he added.

Hutchinson did say that he was open to the idea of a future game set in India: “[Assassin’s Creed 3 writer Corey May] really wants to do India. I would too. I’d really love to do the Raj.”

EGM’s TAKE: Considering that almost everyone throws Egypt as a possible location you would expect the team to have considered it closely. Personally we feel that feudal Japan would be a perfect setting with plenty of tall buildings to work your way through. However, we completely agree with World War 2, not much can be done with fields and trenches and the only real assassins were snipers. The team obviously has ideas of where it wishes to take the franchise in the future, but it appears that these three locations aren’t on that list.
