Every Assassin’s Creed game has featured a particular historical time period– old Italy, the Caribbean, revolutionary America, etc– in addition to smaller present-day sections that serve as story tie-ins and lore-builders. Those present-day sections, however, really aren’t the point according to series writer Darby McDevitt:

“The backbone of this series is visiting different time periods and bringing them to life. A lot of hardcore fans really like the present day stuff, and while that’s the bookend and narrative wrapper of this series, that’s not the point.”

McDevitt talks about a lot more regarding the series in a great interview with EDGE Online. Check it out if you have the time.
