Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise is known for its exotic locations, and now it may just include Brazil too.
Assassin’s Creed 3 let you visit some locations in the game when played as Desmond, and Brazil was one of them. It is not a confirmation or anything, but it’s being rumoured that the next game in the franchise could be very well set there.
The news comes from a well-known site Techtudo via Gamespot, and according to an interview they conducted with Bertrand Chaverot, managing director for Ubisoft Brazil, the upcoming game was hinted by him to be set in Brazil.
The location is quite wonderful with cramped huts and what not, and we don’t know how Ubisoft will pull this off if it turns out to be true. One of the main attractions was climbing majestic buildings that were impeccably detailed, and when you consider Brazil, you probably cannot do that.
That’s not a surprise though, since even in Assassin’s Creed 3, the buildings were a bit underwhelming due to the American setting, but it was entirely accurate.
Will Ubisoft release a new game next year? Or will it be a spin off? If they do the latter, they probably wont go with the Brazil setting but they could create a new protagonist and move the series into next-gen.
The publisher has made it clear that they will release a new game every year, but will it be a mainline numbered game? Whatever it is, it sounds really promising.
