Assassin’s Creed 4 game director sets sights on Ancient Egypt

Unity or pedestrianism.

Work on Assassin’s Creed 4 is coming to a close, freeing the team up to look to future projects. Game director Ashraf Ismail wants to take the series to Egypt. "I'm not saying we are going there, but one day I would love to explore Egypt as a setting for this game,” he told the Examiner.

Though he realises fans may be upset if they continue to jump around history as Ubisoft have been.

"People are really surprised with where we took Assassin's Creed 4 because it was back in time from Connor's time. But we've never outright said that we are always moving forward. It just happened to be that way because we went from Altair to Ezio, then Ezio to Connor and there was a lot of hype about the American Revolution.

"However, it was never a set rule that we always get closer to the present day. We were a bit surprised by people who saying, 'how do you go back in time, how's that possible?' It's that Animus device we have. But again, I'm not saying Egypt is where the next one is going, it's just where I would like it to go."

Even if Ismail got his wish, with the series on an annual release schedule, there’d be three Assassin’s Creed games released between now and Assassin’s Creed: Scarab Soup.

You really missed a trick there Julian. You should have had a pic of him swandiving off the pyramid into a camels bedding!

Also, I think Medieval Japan or Britain would be a good one. Britain would have you as a Druid fighting for the soul of freedom vs Christianity... You would lose..but...still be in peoples minds thousands of years later...at Glastonbury....

Really think Russia during the time of the Tsars, leading up to the revolution, could be perfect for this. Maybe the French Revolution, too, but I think the politics of The Russian revolution are more interesting.

Ancient Rome would work as we'll - democracy vs republic vs tyranny
