Ubisoft Says: Don’t Expect A Modern Day Assassin’s Creed

If you’re waiting for a modern-day Assassin’s Creed game, you better keep on waiting. Ever since the series was started all of the games have been based in the past, from the Renascence up to the American Revolution. And according to lead writer Darby McDevitt, AC games are going to keep living in the past, so to speak.

In a recent AMA on Reddit, McDevitt was asked if the series would be based in the present. He responded “I doubt we would do a modern day AC. There are just too many mechanics we would have to develop to make it [believable] … vehicles, plausible modern cities, a huge array of ranged weapons, etc. The modern day will most likely remain as a ‘context’ for all future games, something to tie them all together.”

However, just because AC isn’t going to be made in the modern world doesn’t mean you’re out of luck! McDevitt teased in that AMA that if you have an itch for a modern day AC, Watch Dogs will scratch it! Too bad we have to wait until next year to scratch that itch.
