The invasion of Americas by Spanish Conquistadors could be the setting for next AC game

Assassin's Creed fans are always eager to find out the setting of the next game in the popular action-adventure series and thanks to Ubisoft's survey, we have twelve potential locations that the publisher could consider.

Shortly after the release of Assassin's Creed Origins, Ubisoft asked players to fill out a survey which included a question regarding a setting for future Assassin's Creed games. Among these potential settings, there are some that Ubisoft already used, like Viking invasions, which is featured in Valhalla or The Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta in Classical Greece from Odyssey.

However, the rest of the settings from the list are yet to be featured in a major Assassin's Creed game so these it's entirely possible that Ubisoft are considering these for future titles. Let's check out all of them.

The Invasion of the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors

This is one of the most-requested settings by the Assassin's Creed community and it looks like Ubisoft are listening and could announce an Assassin's Creed game set between 1519–1521 when the first Spanish  Spanish invaders and their indigenous allies began their conquest of the empire. If this game ever releases, expect to play as an Aztec assassin, trying to take down the Spanish empire.

Ghengis Khan and the Mongol Invasions

The Mongol invasions took place in 13th and 14th centuries and if Ubisoft ever decide to go with this setting, we assume players would take a role of a Mongol warrior, similar to how we play as a Viking warrior in the invasion of England.

The Warlord battles in Feudal Japan

We already have plenty of games set in Feudal Japan and that's one of the reasons why Ubisoft are so sceptical about this setting but who knows, maybe one day the publisher finally grants the wish of many players.

The violent conflicts of the Imperial Dynasties in Medieval China

Chinese history is certainly a rich one and that's why Ubisoft may decide to set their next game in one of the most important periods of the country's history.

The overthrow of the Tsar Empire by the Communists during the Russian Revolution

Assassin's Creed franchise already visited Russia in the Chronicles series but it seems Ubisoft would love to do more games within this setting. The survey was released after Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia launched, which suggests they are not done with the Russian Revolution just yet.

These are five settings that are usually on the lips of many Assassin's Creed fans, but the survey also includes the following ones, which may not be as interesting and "exotic" as these above, simply because we already have Assassin's Creed games set in Europe.

  • Joan of Arc's battles and rise of the Black Death during the Hundred Years War
  • The Spanish Inquisition, the setting of the Assassin's Creed film
  • Wiliam the Conqueror and the invasion of England
  • Hannibal's invasion of Rome
  • The Dark Ages and the historical King Arthur
  • The Rise of the Roman Empire in the Mediterranean basin
  • The Conquests of the Alexander of Great
