With a new message posted on the publisher’s official blog, Ubisoft’s EVP Lionel Raynaud talked about a feature that could come in the new Assassin’s Creed next-gen: including several historical timelines in one game.
“We would be able to – in the same world – have several historical periods, for instance, in Assassin’s Creed, and use the Animus to travel from one to the other,” explains Lionel Raynaud. Looking to the future, Ubisoft believes that an Assassin’s Creed game could address multiple historical timelines with forthcoming next-gen hardware and new technologies.
Continuing with the reasoning, Raynaud said that a similar feature could also come in the next iterations of Watch Dogs and Far Cry: “Or have different areas of the world linked by travel systems, so that a Far Cry game or a Watch Dogs game could happen in different countries in the same experience, seamlessly.”
According to the words of Lionel Raynaud, proposing contents of this magnitude in terms of map size would be possible thanks to the post-launch support, publishing new completely new areas to be explored within the main game after the game debut. Would you like the idea of an Assassin’s Creed set in different historical periods?
Remaining in theme with the saga, we remember that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will debut on October 5th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
