Speaking with GamesMaster mag, Ubisoft's Vincent Pontbriand, producer of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood revealed that the franchise could very well work in a World War II setting.
"We have a couple of options [for AC3]. So far we've tried to take eras that had very important things happen in them that are known worldwide. So WW2 for example - we could have an Assassin's there. It would work.
"So you can draw a list of major events in history during the last 5,000 years and those could be our choices!"
This isn't the first time that Ubisoft mentioned a world war setting for the Assassin's Creed franchise either, with the first nod at the idea coming from producer SÃ©bastien Puel. Ideas for a female protagonist were also discussed but Puel affirms that it would only be done should it fit with the time period.
"We've had discussions on that very topic. It could be really interesting but we'd need to find the right time period and place for that."
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is a continuation of Ezio's story in Assassin's Creed 2. It'll be the first game in the franchise to offer a multiplayer component. The beta's open to all PlayStation Plus members at the moment. The game is out November 16 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
