Up For Debate - What do you want for the next Assassins Creed?

Last year saw the launch of the highly anticipated third entry into the recent Assassins Creed reboot trilogy which took us to the land of England during the Viking era. But with many rumors running around about what the next AC game might focus on, and the anticipation of Ubisoft's Forward event at E3 2021 this year, we thought we’d ask you guys what do you want for the next Assassins Creed?

The AC series has gone to many different locations and time periods over its history, all the way from the renaissance period up until the Victorian Industrial Revolution in London in the late 1800s. It’s fair to say that there has been quite a lot of variety, even if every iteration has largely been the same experience as the last.

New rumors suggest the next Assassins Creed could be returning to the Crusade era, right where the first game began, bringing the series full circle and returning the focus of the series to that age old fight between Assassins and Templars using the power of the animus. That story is still there in the latest games, but it takes a significant step back behind the curtains and lets the rest of the game that takes place in the past (where all the fun assassin-y stuff happens) take center stage under the spotlight.

Personally, I find the whole modern day plot of Assassins Creed incredibly boring. Just let me jump from incredible heights into hay bales and fight 12 dudes all at once (or, you know, stealth kill an entire bandit camp) whilst trying to upgrade my gear. That’s the fun part to me, but there’s also a die-hard community of fans who want more of the modern stuff.

Aside from that though, there’s also the gameplay aspect: whilst the last 3 entries have significantly changed up the gameplay compared to the original AC games, some still feel it’s a little outdated/same-y. Maybe you like the new gameplay, maybe you don’t, but we’d love to hear your thoughts either way and if there’s any significant changes you would like to see in the next entry!

So here we are. What do you want for the next Assassins Creed? Do you like the modern story parts? Do you want more of them? When would you like the next Assassins Creed to take place? What locations/time periods would you love to see the series explore? And what changes to the gameplay would you like to see? Let’s debate!

Do you enjoy the over arching modern story of the AC games?

Do you want more modern day story or less?

When would you like the next AC game to take place?

Does Assassins Creed gameplay need to change again?

For the next Assassins Creed i would like Splinter Cell, but without the tech ****. maybe night vision with potions or some "not so edible mushrooms".

I personally love the Reboot of the franchise since Origins specially gameplay part, the gamut of colors, the ambiance and the worlds building has always been the strong part of Ubi so i like that in new AC games what i miss from previous titles though are memorable characters/support characters and a solid story !

Slowly but surely we are all coming to realization that Unity was the best Assassin's Creed game. The only problem with Unity is that you have to unlock stuff like double assassinations

I'd say the problem was the pacing, multiplayer missions, and stupid Ai. The multiplayer was cool, but most of the historical missions were only available to the multiplayer, and it was not integrated to the single player campaign seamlessly. The ai design was stupid, the red enemy will always be wary of you no matter where you are so long as you're in their line of sight (doesn't matter if you're in the restricted area or not) because that's how they designed, and the inhuman reaction to stealth is ironic since this is the first game that introduced the stealth button.

Afaik the red ones (extremists) work for the templars and are thus on the lookout for Assassins - that's why they recognize you

Yeah i know that, but how did they know that it's Arno the Assassin if you keep changing your appearance in the game? It just doesn't make sense

No no, I dont think in the lore they know it's Arno (ofc AI knows) and I dont think they care, they just see someone looking like an Assassin and then attack

imo Ubi forcing game play of endless grind over buying micro-transactions disrupt the story-line (not worth playing) money only reason eg. Days Gone boss blaming Gamer' for not buying it full price is reason why no sequel or rushed releases

if ubisoft wants to do modern they should merge assassins creed into TomClancy and continue with TomClancy. that would be a hit

There has to be a bigger emphasis on parcour and assasinations. Not just grindy combat. They also should remove the level caps, so it doesn't take 40 hours to complete the main story.

In Unity you can direct Parkour Normal/Up/Down which gave us incredible amounts of control while being simple enough for smooth freerun - it felt the best of all ACs

Set in a War of the Roses or 100 years war would be great. Have a feature that when you wear a full knight armor, it would be harder to stealth but have better defense compared to lighter armor, while have different animations for each armor category (sluggish moving in full knight armor for example).

The settings was never about any warrior. It's a famous historical era that should fit with the game's nature. I was just imagining the feature of the game if it's going to be set in that era.


Going by your logic, that means Valhalla and Odyssey is not a stealth games since you can be a Viking Warrior in Valhalla and engage in an open war in Odyssey.

With modern story in AC games, I think they really don't even know what they want to do with it, so they just keep it rolling. And I would like to see it go two ways, either get rid of it and give us the good stuff from the in game past. Or do something major with it that will make it interesting. But as is, it is jut there because it "must be", because script demands it.

As for the gameplay, yeah, we definitely are at point where it needs to change again. I do love current RPG style, but if they keep re-using it and just do minor evolutionary improvements every year or two, it will get stale in no time. So yeah, time for refresh or at least more revolutionary steps that will mix things up and make it interesting again. Otherwise they will get another Unity. :-D

Unity is fine after bug fixes, like not the best, but not the worst either, if you take it in isolation and pretend gazillion games in franchise weren't released before it with similar, if not same playstyle. The problem was annual spam of games that basically were new theme over old thing with few smaller evolutionary upgrades. And Unity was unlucky to be the one where camels back broke.

Personally I don't hate Unity, beside memeworthy bugginess on release, it's just that formula got very old by that time and I guess in a way Unity was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Plus it dragged plenty of open world game problems with it, not really trying to fix any of them and by that time, plenty of us had about enough of that.

Last assassins creed i played was black flag and after that i was pretty much done. The last far cry i played was 4 which was already a copy of 3. They need to rethink these franchises directions or keep losing their player base.

They changed it into worse. They took Witcher 3 and pasted Assassins Creed name on it. W3 is a fantastic game, but that is not what AC is all about

I don't really care about the setting. (I'll say maybe something in the Crusades. AC I had an amazing setting with Jerusalem, Acre and Damascus. Will love to see those type of cities with the new Anvil engine)
But please get rid of that gameplay and those fantasy things!! That's not the AC I love!

Having watched the Netflix series Marco Polo not long ago, a game set with the Khans could be interesting. The show even managed to side-line the title character in favour of them and there is a lot of potential there. Whatever Ubisoft choose though it needs to be considerably smaller than Valhalla as they've proven it's possible to have too much of a good thing.
