With Assassin's Creed Odyssey, it has become clear that Ubisoft has circled back on itself and is exploring ancient cultures that existed before even the first game.
No longer will we be jumping about Renaissance Italy or hunting in Colonial America - the series is exploring the 'ancient' period of history. This means Greeks, Romans, and all the other fascinating cultures that formed our own.
Luckily for Ubisoft, there are plenty of these.
Wherever the developers choose to go, there are a lot of considerations they've got to make when picking a setting. It's got to be an era that has a distinct look, feature unique buildings to climb, there has to be scope for combat, and it also has to vaguely work in the lore of the series and the real world. This means there has to be some sort of ongoing conflict that the Assassin versus Templar war can take part in - the American Revolutionary War is a great example.
Fans have been suggesting many new locales for a long time, and beyond that there are really interesting periods of history that Ubisoft could explore. Here are a few locations that would make for great Assassin's Creed games.
I'm based in the UK, looking to make a career out of writing about entertainment and culture. The only thing I like as much as watching films, playing games or listening to music is enjoying as much hummus and crisps as I can while I do so. My favourite film is Eddie the Eagle and I like any game that lets me wander around beautiful worlds (or eat hummus and crisps).
