Assassin's Creed III could have a World War II setting


Ubisoft has discussed the possibility of Assassin's Creed III being set during World War II with a female assassin.

Speaking to Xbox World 360, producer Sébastien Puel said it would make having a female protagonist interesting due to the female-run economy of WWII-era France and England.

"We've had discussions on that very topic," said Puel. "It could be really interesting but we'd need to find the right time period and place for that.

"Where would that make sense? We don't want to just decide we want to change and have a female hero as the first inspiration is always the time period, but if you're talking about, say, World War II the economies in England and France were run by women because the men were off fighting.

Adding that there's always the possibilty for more than just triology, creative director Patrice Fortier piped in saying: "What's so great about Assassin's Creed is that we can just expand and expand. I'm often asked if we're doing a third game after ACII... I mean, we could do 35 of these."

Guess Puel forgot that America's economy was run by women as well during WWII. Heck, if not for that, Marilyn Monroe would have been Norma Jean forever.
