Ubisoft recently held an Assassin's Creed art exhibit in Germany where Assassin's Creed 3's art director, Mohamed Gambouz, was in attendance. The folks over at HookedGamers had the chance to ask him a few questions and of course they asked about Assassin's Creed 3. "What can you say about Assassin's Creed 3? Which setting are you thinking about now, when you think about AC3," they asked. His response was a bit surprising and a bit vague.
"Well, I personally would do something completely new. Maybe something in an Asian or South American setting, at least nothing that we have already made. But in the end it's not my decision. But you can be sure that we read the reactions of our customers in forums, blogs and Facebook and Twitter very closely and also seriously talk through the suggestions from our players from time to time. In the next few months you will truly experience more details."
This of course is just what he would like to see in the game. While Assassin's Creed 3 hasn't had an official reveal yet, we have no doubts that is coming. Last we heard, Ubisoft was planning on releasing the next Assassin's Creed game before March 31, 2012. I find it unlikely they haven't decided on a location yet and aren't well into production. Then again maybe he's just not letting information slip until Ubisoft is ready to announce something official. He is the art director after all, his opinion on the series matters.
Do you want Assassin's Creed 3 to be set in Asia or South America?
