Assassin's Creed heading to Ancient Egypt?

Release Date: 14/10/2013

We're only weeks away from the release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, which shifts the series focus to the sweltering peril of the Golden Age of Piracy in the 18th Century. But once the tale of Edward Kenway has been told, where will the series go next?

Black Flag's director, Ashraf Ismail, has made his preference clear in an interview with The Examiner. "There's a lot of interesting periods and time places we haven't been to that I would to see," he said. "I'm not saying we are going there, but one day I would love to explore Egypt as a setting for this game. Ancient Egypt could be a really cool place. We have a really cool explanation for how we can do this".

He also has a few words for fans who assume that because the games have gone from the Crusades to the Renaissance, and then to the American Revolution, that future sequels must continue moving forwards. "People are really surprised with where we took Assassin's Creed IV because it was back in time from Connor's time," he explains. "But we've never outright said that we are always moving forward. It just happened to be that way because we went from Altair to Ezio, then Ezio to Connor and there was a lot of hype about the American Revolution."

"However, it was never a set rule that we always get closer to the present day. We were a bit surprised by people who saying, 'how do you go back in time, how's that possible?' It's that Animus device we have. But again, I'm not saying Egypt is where the next one is going, it's just where I would like it to go."

What do you think? Are you ready to perform an eagle dive from the Sphinx's head?
