The lights are on
The massive Ubisoft studio in Montreal is not only the center for production on Assassin's Creed III, but also the directing hub for all books, novels, and films relating to Assassin's Creed. We gathered together the brand content manager for the series, the writer and the creative director for Assassin's Creed III, and Game Informer's Matt Bertz to talk about what it is like to manage the complicated Assassin's Creed lore across all media.

I know there's a lot of stuff for feudal Japan, but I would still love to have an AC game there. Hopefully as that female assassin from the Embers short.
How Awesome would it be if one of the assassins from AC was behind the death of Hitler. that hHitler didn't commit suicide but was instead assassinated.
That writer guy with glasses (I forget his name...) seems cool.
love all of it from its story to actual information all the games except AC Revalations kick ass
Setting-wise, China is exponentially better than Japan.
have the GI magazine for this game and cant wait to get this in April
I bet it would be fun to be a writer for AC.
So basically, they are going to drag it on and milk it as much as they can, without any resolution - a la resident evil, until they notice that the franchise is dying. Then voila! a resolution is finally on sight. Okay then.
Cool interview. I like how they expressed the willingness to continue expanding the universe after finishing Desmond's story.
I also wouldn't mind seeing a setting in Asia for a further installment. China and Japan would both be good settings. But I think I would rather see China myself though.
awesome stuff! :)
So it is bascally confirmed that we will se more AC games after ACIII.
Mixed emotions actually. On one hand I want to experience as much as humanly possible of the AC universe and story, but on the other hand I would really like this game series to have a proper ending.
Well they do at least have the possibility (with the setting, the animus etc.) to control and make variations between the different games.
I think ac3 should be based on 2 different time periods like the American Revolution and world war to that way you could show the advancements in to different fighters then show how they link together like Altair and Ezio
Gameinformer keep doing what u do best giving the latest in gaming news #WINNING
damn they want to do feudal japan but japan make a lot of games on it xD. 5 different assassins five different time periods is impossible but they do want to do it some day since making 1 assassin takes a lot of time and thinking
game informer does work
