Ubisoft: WW2, Japan and Egypt would make dismal Assassin's Creed locations

"People on the internet suggest the most boring settings."

World War 2, feudal Japan and ancient Egypt would make dismal Assassin's Creed backdrops, so says series creative director Alex Hutchinson.

Speaking in an interview with OXM, Hutchinson revealed that the aforemetioned are the most frequently 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.

Unhelpfully, Hutchinson didn't qualify his condemnation, but did suggest he was open to the idea of setting a future franchise entry 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," he said.

The recently announced Assassin's Creed 3, out later this year, has settled on 18th-century north America as its playground. See our recent AC3 preview for more on how that is panning out.

Past locales include Renaissance Italy, Constantinople and the Holy Land.
