The Assassin’s Creed franchise has already visited plenty of time periods, locations, and settings. A new Assassin’s Creed game taking place in present day is unlikely, however.
Assassin’s Creed IV lead writer
more or less ruled out the possibility during a Reddit AMA he participated in earlier today. He said:
“I doubt we would do a modern day AC. There are just too many mechanics we would have to develop to make it believeable [sic] … vehicles, plausible modern cities, a huge array of ranged weapons, etc. The modern day will most likely remain as a “context” for all future games, something to tie them all together.”
