Future Assassin’s Creed Games will have More Ties to Modern Timeline

Ubisoft has plans from now on to focus on the more modern timelines in their famous Assassin’s Creed games, so future Assassin’s Creed games may have a more modern twist. During Ubisoft’s latest live stream they talked about these possibilities with their fans.

Darby McDevitt, a lead writer for the Assassin’s Creed games, talked about the new timeline for the town of Monteriggioni in Brotherhood. “That only came about because [we] were able to reuse Monteriggioni from AC2, so the plan is to smartly reuse things so we can have a more robust modern day. We always plan to have more modern day but we have to be really smart about how we do it. There was a plan for a little more modern day in Unity [and] nothing that was actually cut.

“The thing with Unity was that it was a completely fresh game on a completely fresh generation. So creating any kind of modern day is a pretty huge ask. To create a city, for instance, or even part of a city, would require six months by many many artists, designers, modelers, and then you’d need gameplay systems that didn’t feel like you were just fencing.”

The popular Assassin’s Creed game Unity did not include any modern timeline at all, unlike the games before it.

Ubisoft has huge plans for these series, they may even compile all the history of the franchise’s first civilization. Keep an eye on them, big things are sure to be coming your way.
