Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is just around the corner and Ubisoft is already looking ahead to Assassin’s Creed 3. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you’ve already been enjoying the multiplayer aspect of Brotherhood and are probably ready for your fix of single-player assassinations. However, if you’re eager to know where this story is heading, Ubisoft is saying World War II is a definite and realistic possibility.

According to Vincent Pontbriand, one of the producers behind Brotherhood, World War II is a realistic setting that could be featured within the world of Assassin’s Creed. One of the things Pontbriand points out is that the creative team prefers to set the franchise around a time period of great significance and World War II definitely fits that bill.

“We have a couple of options [for AC3]. So far we’ve tried to take eras that had very important things happen in them that are known worldwide. So WW2 for example – we could have an Assassin’s there. It would work.

“So you can draw a list of major events in history during the last 5,000 years and those could be our choices!”

Thankfully, he isn’t guaranteeing that the WWII setting is going to be the decision made, but only that it is one of many possibilities. No offense to Ubisoft, of course, as I’m a huge fan of the franchise, but World War II has forever been tarnished in the gaming industry with the plethora of shooters released within that time frame. Hopefully their creative team can come up with a better time period than that.

What do you guys think? Would you rather see AC3 take place in WWII or elsewhere?

    The BETA is amazing.. I am so addicted.. =3
    The only merit I can think of it being WWII is that Hitler would be the perfect Templar..
    Other than that, WWII is a big no.. =P

    Why not WWI first? Seems like very few games involve World War I but that’s just my feeling.

  4. A more modern Assassin’s Creed sounds cool.

  5. Hitler would be THE PERFECT templar XD but I would rather see a “musket era” like Revolutionary war era Assassins creed, but this could be good.

  6. WW3 for another game, american revolution is a more logical step

  7. I hope they remove this option from the drawing board. After the ancient times, then the renaissance, they should go for something a lot more modern. And I liked the rumor I heard a while back, that the third one, you’d be playing a female in the Animus. That would be cool. Female in the Animus, male outside. Also, if the third one ties up the main trilogy, they really should have more action in the present time, as collecting the pieces of Eden and defeating the Templars needs doing. Warren needs to die.
