[[WMG: The very last ''Assassin's Creed'' will be set during the time of the First Civilization]]
What better way to conclude the series than to go in-depth on the MacGuffin civilization? Specifically, it'll take place mainly in Atlantis and, in addition to recurring characters like Juno and Minerva, it will also include numerous other characters as truth-behind-the-myth versions of ancient legendary characters.

And will feature the assassins going after Abstergo's board of directors. Probably because the templars tried to betray the assassins in their war against [[spoiler: Juno]], and so they had to be eliminated for the good of winning the war.

war. As such, the journey around the world will be seeking out ways to destroy the inner sanctum, the guardians and the general of the cross.

Assassin skills don't come from training or mental discipline- they're a side effect of being damn stylish. The corollary to Terry Pratchett's [[Literature/Discworld "assassins= killers plus style" theory.]] This is how a fairly ordinary pirate can achieve all their skills by donning their robes.

'''Heavy''' update for a future Assassin's Creed game. Ubisoft has specifically said that they're not interested in making games set in WWII, Feudal Japan or Ancient Egypt, as those would all be too cliche and "boring". In turn, ''Assassins Creed IV'' mentions numerous possibilities in [[http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/AE_files:CONFIDENTIAL_-_Subject_-_RE:_Potential_time_periods%3F an ingame file]]. Apparently, Ubisoft is reading the Wild Mass Guesses. However, it seems that the cut-off point is the 1900's, when cars became well-known, because;

-->'''Olivier Garneau''' ...we don't want to go through the effort of coding extra Animus features just for the sake of digging up memories of people driving around in cars. There are [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto other]] and [[DrivingGame more efficient ways]] to experience that...
Specifically mentioned are;
#Twelfth Century - Holy Land / Crusades
#Thirteenth Century - Egypt and Northern Africa
#Fourteenth Century - Ashikaga Shogunate in Japan
#Fifteenth Century - Italian Renaissance
#Sixteenth Century - Ottoman Empire
#Eighteenth Century - French Revolution
#Eighteenth Century - American Colonies / War for Independence
#Nineteenth Century - Napoleonic wars; Taiwan
#Nineteenth Century - New England and American Midwest
On the other hand, cars didn't become ''commonplace'' until after the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Motors_streetcar_conspiracy General Motors streetcar conspiracy]] - which could raise the cut-off point to anywhere between 1938 and 1950, making ChandlerAmericanTime an option.\\
And now the Wild Mass Guesses;
* World War I. Fits well, as it had lots of intrigue that could feed into conspiracy theories (heck, it ''started'' with an assassination) and would allow for some interesting settings (you need to somehow cross no-man's land to get to your target in the other trench: how do you do it?). Could also bring in things like the Easter Uprising and Russian Revolution.
** UsefulNotes/WorldWarI itself wouldn't work, but the Irish War Of Independance would be perfect. The protagonist is arrested after the Easter Rising and meets a master assassin in prison. He is then released and fights in the war against the Black and Tans and the Auxies.
* Gilded Age America. Immigrants, Teddy Roosevelt, Muckrakers... could be fun.
* The British Raj over India. Bonus if it involves Thugees.
* The American West- the ''real'' American west, not the Hollywood version.
** Probably not, considering the sudden surge in popularity the genre is getting thanks to ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption''.
* Great Depression America.
* Moorish Spain.
* Central Europe shortly after WWII. Think Film/TheThirdMan, only with more open violence.
* Sengoku-era Japan, no. ''Pre-Meiji'' Japan, yes.
* Korea at some point of the Joseon era. Admittedly, that's a lot of time to cover, but Korean history is unexplored in video games.
* America in [[TheSixties the 1960s]], with the plot exploring the Templars' involvement in the Cold War and [[WhoShotJFK the Kennedy Assassination]].
* TheRoaringTwenties, with a mobster Assassin.
* South America, as there was a rumour about it a while ago. They already had one brief level set on Brazil in ACIII, maybe it was a hint of things to come? If so, I'm placing my bets on WarOfTheTripleAlliance and the overall mid-19th century powerplay on South America.
* The Anglo-Nepalese War. Nepal is known for its mountainous terrain, and climbing high places is a big part of AC. Also, playing as an Assassin Gurkha would be cool as hell. The end would be sort of sad, though, since Nepal was historically defeated.
* Egypt during the Twenties, taking us through Cairo, Alexandria, and King Tut's Tomb (plus Piece of Eden) and featuring history's greatest {{Adventurer Archaeologist}}s.
** There were rumors of Arno's saga extending into the Napoleonic conquest of Egypt. That's a bit earlier but could still work.
** They are going to an Egyptian game which is every Hollywood EpicMovie ever. Now that they have experimented (tentatively) with multiple timelines, they'll do an Egypt game where you can visit Alexandria, Cairo, Thebes and Giza but each city is set in a different time. This allows us to meet almost every famous conqueror and figure in Egyptian history in one game so Akhenaten, Nefertiti, Moses and Rameses (maybe), Cleopatra and Caesar and finally Napoleon with the French.
* The Age of Conquistadors, preferably back when the New World was still new. Because A) You can't drop Mesoamerican Assassins on us with no explanation and B) is there a more obvious Templar than Hernan Cortes?
* South Africa during the Anglo-Zulu or Boer Wars, with a Zulu assassin.
* 1920s Berlin during UsefulNotes/TheWeimarRepublic.
* Chicago during the Columbian World Exposition. Okay, there's really not enough there for a full game... maybe just an intro during "Jazz Age Junkies". But it's too good a setting not to use! Bonus points if HH Holmes is one of your targets.

#American Civil War: Room for both Templars and Assassins on ''both'' sides of the conflict. The Assassins would obviously get behind emnancipation and ''push'', but there's also the fact that the [=ACW=] was the touchstone of federalization - all states controlled by a central authority - which has been ''the'' Templar goal since '''day one.''' "Brother against brother" might mean dynamic splits in both the Templar and Assassin orders, with Assassins who wish to end slavery finding themselves inadvertently fighting alongside Templars who wish to imperialize the Union. In turn, Templar slaveowners would receive unexpected assistance from Assassins who defend the rights of independent states.
#Bohemian Revolution: Gypsies versus aristocrats. Assassin's Creed on the streets of Paris, intrigue and deception in the halls of the Moulin Rouge. Secret Gypsy arts. Free-climb the Eiffel Tower!
#Great Depression: We ''all'' know those damn Templar robber barons caused the 1929 stock market crash. Hitch a ride west with the Joad family and fight the power in California.
#English Civil War and the Commonwealth: Okay, Sean had a ''lot'' to say about the American Revolution - let's see him direct that snark at the corruption and upheaval of his ''own'' history. If ever there was a political figure that needs to be woven into the Assassinís Creed mythology, itís UsefulNotes/OliverCromwell. There is definitely an epic tale to be told, especially from the point of view of the Assassins and the Templars. Is Cromwell evil for wanting a republic rather than a monarchy? Some of his policies were definitely evil. And many people view him as a regicidal rebel rather than a patriot. Perhaps the story is one of shifting allegiances, with the Assassins helping Cromwell get into power, only to be appalled at what he does with it. And of course, it all started one [[ComicBook/VForVendetta Fifth of November]]...
#12th Century England: This ''has'' to happen. Of course Robin Hood was an Assassin. Itís so obvious. And his Merry Men were his Assassin Brotherhood! It just fits together too well to be ignored. They could establish that the entire Robin Hood legend is based entirely on that eraís Assassin Brotherhood, and the main character could be Robin Hood himself. The battle against Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham is too perfect, because clearly John worked with or for the Templars.
#'''''World War 2.''''' Ubisoft will have to kick down and deliver this ''eventually.'' Visit London and stop some Nazi spies with Wintson Churchill. Fight alongside General Patton in the European Theater. Storm Normandy on D-Day! Or sneak into Berlin and assassinate Hitler himself in his very bunker! Ride motorcycles through the streets of London during the Blitz. Join paratroopers in the highest freefalls the games have ever seen. Help smuggle Albert Einstein out of Germany. Stop the Templars from getting the bomb. Attend one of Hitlerís rallies in disguise. Recruit new Assassins from all over the world. Hang out with Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin when they posed for that picture on the bench. Even Ubisoft admits it's kind of cliche for video games to take place in World War II, but thereís a very good reason for it. That conflict was one of the greatest the world has ever seen. And no game will give it as much reverence or treat it with such awe-inspiring grandeur as Assassinís Creed. And we '''all''' want to stealth-stab some god-damned Nazis!
