Assassin's Creed 4 Secret Hints at Possible AC5 Locations

Assassin's Creed 4 Secret Hints at Possible AC5 Locations

It might have only just hit the stores, but AC4 looks like it's hinting at where the series might go next.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag only launched today but we're already able to look ahead at what the series' future might have in store.

One of the many Easter eggs hidden away in Black Flag's modern day section is an email conversation penned by high-ranking Abstergo employees trying to decide where the next Assassin's Creed game might be set.

Many fan-favorite locations are discussed, and there is confirmation that some of the most asked-after time periods have already been found and sequenced from the DNA of series protagonist Desmond Miles. What a happy coincidence!

There's also lots of very meta discussion about whether the game should have to include another typical video game genre (zombies? ninjas? cowboys?), an in-joke mentioning the series' annual release schedule and nods to a number of Ubisoft employees.

Their efforts were certainly worth it. What they've created is like a modern day digital version of Koyaanisqatsi (and if you don't know what that is, we strongly suggest you look it up) What's weird is that this 1982 movie was also mentioned by me yesterday in a news story about Digital Foundry's fantastic GTA V time-lapse video.
