AC3 Creative Director Trashes Gamers’ Ideas, “People on the Internet Suggest the Most Boring Settings”

April 6, 2012 Written by Alex Osborn

Before Assassin’s Creed 3 was confirmed by Ubisoft to be set during the American Revolution, gamers all over the net – including our very own staff here at PlayStation LifeStyle – shared our thoughts on where and when the game might take place. According to a recent statement from AC3 creative director Alex Hutchinson, the majority of us have terrible ideas.

Speaking to OXM, Hutchinson brought up setting suggestions made by fans of the franchise, noting that most of them weren’t even worth considering.

People on the internet suggest the most boring settings. The three most wanted are WWII, feudal Japan and Egypt. They’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.

He went on to add that Assassin’s Creed 3 writer Corey May really wanted to take the franchise to India, a setting that Hutchinson also finds interesting. “I would too. I’d really love to do the Raj.”

So, if you were hoping to play as one of Desmond’s ancestors in Egypt, during WII or feudal Japan, you probably won’t get your wish anytime soon. Also, according to Hutchinson, you have awful taste.
