Assassin's Creed in the USSR, ancient Rome?

Ubisoft marketing man drops hints about franchise's next destination

Earlier today, Ubisoft reiterated that "a big Assassin's Creed game" is set to launch next year, and our money's on AC3.

So where will the next entry in the series be set?

According to Ubisoft EMEA marketing chief Geoffroy Sardin, we should be looking at the company's cross-media AC efforts for clues.

"If you've read the comic books you will see that we took Assassin's Creed to the USSR, or Caesar's Rome - that's a good example of what we could do in the coming years in the next video games," he told MCV.

"We never saw this as just a franchise - it is a 360 degree franchise, and touches a lot of other experiences. It's not just a game, but an animated story, on comics, in books, and other formats too. There's lots of scope for what we can do."

Previously rumoured AC settings have included Egypt and WWII, while Ubisoft devs have even jokingly mentioned outer space.

Where do you want the series to head to next?
