Alex Hutchinson is the creative director of Assassin’s Creed III, and he quite simply doesn’t like the ideas the internet put fourth pertaining to locations for the game. He says they’re “boring”, like epic fail boring.
“People on the internet suggest the most boring settings,” the director told OXM. “The three most wanted are WWII, feudal Japan and Egypt. They’re kind of the three worst settings for an AC game.”
So, yeah. Keep quiet, internet. You know nothing, apparently.
