Assassin’s Creed license, in all its forms, has now traveled extensively. But the history is rich, and there are still many possible destinations for the next game. Alain Mercieca, senior author on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, talked about this topic.
In an interview with The Gamer, Alain Mercieca was asked about the destinations he is most interested in and to which he would like to send Assassin’s Creed after Valhalla. Of course, he began his answer by saying that there were a lot of possible destinations, and that it was very difficult to choose. However, two places stand out in particular. First, it evokes the island of Malta, located in the middle of the Mediterranean in the south of Sicily:
As a person obsessed with history, you could turn me on with a group of hidden warriors living in a lost society on the island of Malta, and I’d be willing to jump in there and bring all of that up.
However, since the series has now opted for large open worlds, he admits that Malta could prove too small for an entire opus. This is why his second thought takes us to the other side of the Atlantic:
On a larger scale, I feel there is a rich cultural palette in South America that the brand has not yet fully explored. From the Incas to the Spanish Conquistadors, this is a very fascinating period. Although Black Flag touched on it briefly, I have a better feeling with Brazil.
Of course, this is only a personal opinion by Alain Mercieca, and it does not announce the direction that the series will take. Moreover, the very first rumours circulating about the next episode, which remain thin, lead us rather to the Hundred Years War than on the other side of the ocean.
