The popular Assassin’s Creed series could eventually have a game set in modern times.

One of Ubisoft’s flagship franchises, Assassin’s Creed, might possible get a game in the future where setting is ye olde modern times. According to lead writer Darby McDevitt, however, the Assassin’s Creed franchise’s “historical tourism” is one of the series’ biggest draws.

In a tweet from the official Assassin’s Creed 4: Blag Flag Twitter account, McDevitt said that there is always a chance of the series being set in modern times but the “historical tourism” is what draws players to the series.

Whilst speaking at a Comic-Con panel, however, McDevitt said that he would want to give Feudal Japan a chance to be ticked off the list of potential assassinating eras.

“I think the Shogunate is in a cool era,” he said, “but it’s not up to one person, and whatever we do, we’ll make it cool.”

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is the next big installment to the Assassin’s Creed franchise, being as a sort of prequel to Assassin’s Creed 3. Details have been released on a Limited Edition copy as well as a trailer showing off the game’s naval exploration too.
