'Assassin's Creed 5 Could Be Set In Feudal Japan' - Ubisoft

The setting of the next Assassin's Creed game is always a subject rife for speculation, but Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag creative director Jean Guesdon has provided a possible hint as to where Assassin's Creed 5 could be set.
"Feudal Japan remains – like numerous other time periods and locations – a possible future setting for the franchise," Guesdon told VG247.
"Thanks to the Animus, the entire human history is our playground.”
There has also been speculation that Assassin's Creed 5 will be set in Egypt, with an Egyptian themed image from Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag looking remarkably similar to a leaked screenshot that was originally thought to come from a Prince of Persia game.
The potential of a Samurai themed Assassin's Creed game set in feudal Japan has been one that's been avidly discussed by Assassin's Creed fans in forums and comments sections.
Given that Ubisoft included a rating system for the missions in Assassin's Creed 4: Blag Flag, they're obviously keen to listen to fans.
So, who knows, perhaps they'll be getting the feudal Japan setting they've been clamouring for in Assassin's Creed 5.
