An interview granted to Gamersky by Yves Guillemot rekindles the rumors about Assassin’s Creed Kingdom, the next chapter of the iconic Ubisoft open-world action-adventure series for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia and, presumably, PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
Interviewed by Asian journalists to discuss the future of Assassin’s Creed, Ubisoft’s managing director said he was more than open to the possibility of setting one of the next major chapters of the series in feudal China, but also in the modern or, why not, future.
Because of a first, erroneous translation from the Chinese of Guillemot’s statements, several community users have interpreted the words of the Ubisoft boss as anticipation regarding the setting of Assassin’s Creed Kingdom. As reported by analyst Daniel Ahmad, however, these statements should be considered as the simple and “generic” desire of Guillemot to create a new title of Assassin’s Creed set in China, but that nothing, in this sense, has yet been decided by the company transalpine.
Despite the poor sales recorded by Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, the Chinese setting seems to fascinate Guillemot as much as the potential economic return deriving from the boundless basin of users of the Asian superpower that could be interested in this title. To date, therefore, the most “credited” rumors regarding the Assassin’s Creed Kingdom cross-gen project continue to be those of rumors about the setting of the era of the Vikings and its similarities with God of War.
