Ubisoft’s Philippe Bergeron has told German television show PLAY’D that the firm is currently looking into settings for the third installment of Assassin’s Creed.

Two that were mentioned were feudal Japan and medieval Europe.

“There are two things that come to mind – there is medieval Europe, which would be very interesting trying to play a King Arthur story line,” he said. “Another one that is a personal favorite of a lot of people on the floor is feudal Japan, which is something that would be very interesting just culturally to discover and I think also to make players discover as well.”

Ubisoft has also discussed the possibility of Assassin’s Creed III being set during World War II with a female assassin, however, Ubi’s Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat has said that the next setting is already set in stone and in planning.

The second installment is not even out yet. Seriously. Get it out first, please.

Thanks, D’toid.
