Assassin’s Creed Set to Enter WWII
When asked whether or not the Assassin’s Creed series would be getting a third installment, Assassin’s Creed 2 producer SÃ©bastien Puel thinks the answer almost goes without saying. “I’m often asked if we’re doing a third game after ACII… I mean, we could do 35 of these.” When the game’s creative director told us the second game would be ending with a cliffhanger, we didn’t know he meant we’d have to play 35 games to resolve it – that’s approximately 35,000 assassinated fools, by our estimations.
Explaining his hyperbole further, Puel admits that a female assassin isn’t out of the question, even confirming “We’ve had discussions on that very topic.” Still, the Ubisoft producer doesn’t want to switch the protagonist’s gender without a good reason. “World War II, the economies in England and France were run by women because the men were off fighting … 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.” [joystiq]
