Definitely cool, but I was hoping for feudal Japan. I mean come on...this game is begging for ninjas and samurai.

Well, they've done Feudal China, but yeah OBVIOUSLY Japan. That couldn't be more of a no-brainer.

Or, they could loop back to their original conception and have an assassin tasked with guarding a young Prince Dastan in Persia...


Having said that, I am not against a Viking setting in principle.

Having said that, I have never gotten around to playing anything past the first game, so... clearly I'm in no hurry to get even to the acknowledged apexes of the series.  :buck2:

I completely agree. Why the heck haven't they gone for it already???

I still have most of Origins to get through but I MUST play Odyssey soon or I will explode in a nerdgasm of anticipation and dorkitude.

A Viking theme would be great. I wonder if they don't do feudal Japan because it is just too obvious and they want to try to be more emo-cool than that...

I still have pretty much everything to go through... :P
I've yet to finish an AC game, I actually intend to get back to finish AC3 and start progressing from there.

FWIW, the remastered version of AC3 was recently released.

I have played almost all of the AC games and I didn’t really like ACIII...can’t really say why. Liked Rogue and loved Black Flag though.

Folks should not put off playing Odyssey just because you haven't played the earlier games. IMO, and most people agree, I think, Odyssey is clearly the best one.

I'm very happy they're doing Vikings but yes, feudal Japan would be great.
