A Request for the Future of Assassin's Creed games, by a true Fan.

Hello Everyone,

As a true fanatic, I've come to realize that there's so much potential in this series, yet I can't help but feel like it's starting to go nowhere. During the first 5 games I think we all had hoped it would lead somewhere good. However, with the roll up of the new games, I'm starting to think and feel differently. Is it still the same series? Here's a list of things that I want, and things that I don't want. This is my personal request for the future of the Assassin's Creed games.

WANT:

Modern Story Lore and Depth
This is the core of the games, going back in time to hunt down for pieces of Eden is what Assassin's Creed is about. Stick to the origins of the games. People always dreamed and hoped that Desmond was being trained for a Modern day assassin, and we all know how that turned out. Speaking of which...

Desmond
From Assassin's Creed Unity, it was said that Desmond's presence still coexisted with Juno's. It would be great, if it turns out he's like subject 16, and is still active, but cyber-ly, and perhaps they can do something about that. If not, bring a new modern protagonist.

Ancient setting
I heard rumors of the next one being in Egypt, and thank god for that, but please stick to a proper atmosphere. The Assassin Order initially began as Arab (possibly Muslim) group, who all spoke Arabic and swore to the Creed, to fight for freedom against the Templars. If this is indeed a prequel(rumor), then please emphasis why it came to that and answer the question "What Happened?"

Proper Assassin/Stealth missions
I'm sick and tired or eavesdropping, chasing, and stalking people in every darn game. Some games had it good, I'll admit, but it got carried away and the Stealth feel faded away. The game has become more of a combat game, which is ridiculous. I'm not playing God of War here, I don't care for combat. I want to assassinate and flee.

References
References is what built this game from the very beginning starting in AC:2. When the games reference one another in terms of story, characters, and history the game actually becomes interesting. The Creed needs to be Connected, all by history and tradition. Syndicate and Unity barely gave a damn. The wort would be Black Flag...pirates...seriously?

Great Music
Like the first five games had. Black Flag wasn't too great, although had some great ambiance pieces. Rogue was good. Unity and Synidicate...errr...they were...different.

Accents
Yes, we need Accents. Stick to the country's language. Include subtitles and in translated, keep the damn accent. I hated how all of France spoke English accents in Unity.


DON'T WANT:

Naval Missions
I'll be honest, I loved and adored the 3 games which included that. AC:3, AC:4, and Rogue. I did enjoy the Naval missions and battles, as well as the sailing. My problem? It's NOT Assassin's Creed. It's a Pirate Combat game, that could've made it on its own without the Assassin's Creed concept. There was no creed, or barely. I loved the games, but I discriminate them from the franchise, because again, where's the suspense? The Creed? The Stealth? Stick to the hunting theme of Assassin's Creed 1, 2, and Brotherhood. Wrong franchise, should've been the official game for Pirates of the Caribbean.

Dress Code
I absolutely hated the Dress code option in Liberation. It was slow, boring, annoying, and wasted too much time. The constant worry of having to change and have to have the perfect outfit was a bother. Do not bring this feature back.

Modern Merry Music
The music in Syndicate and Unity was the worst... AGAIN, NOT ASSASSIN'S CREED FEEL. I felt like I was playing a Downey Jr. in Sherlock Holmes the whole time in Syndicate. I miss the haunting feel in the first 3 Assassin's Creed games. I felt dangerous, yet also in danger. Altair felt like a ghost. I loved it. That ominous atmosphere gave me chills, but brought me back for more always.

Enough of Modern America and Europe
Jeez. 3, 4, and Rogue were pretty much the same setting, not to mention a load of copy and paste. Syndicate and Unity also shared their own little setting of modernity. ENOUGH. Jerusalem, Venice, Constantinople, and Rome were gems. They felt old, they felt ancient. Bring the series back to the past. Back to the Creed.

Thanks for reading.
Please share this if you agree!

    I disagree with the argument "this is assassin, this is not". A thing Assassin's Creed really succeed in is to let the player choose the way they want to be assassin. I think both combat and stealth are important. I also disagree with you about the music. Syndicate music was very great, and fit perfectly the time period. However, I agree with you with the modern day. Junior (the son of Desmond) will take more place I guess very soon (and hopefully Galina too).

    I agree with some things, I disagree with others, but first of all : Desmond is dead. Completely deceased. It's over. It's done. He's not coming back. I was heart broken as much as the next fan at the end of AC III, but I think Ubisoft made it quite clear : Desmond's cycle is finished, and now starts a new one, with... Someone. I don't know if everybody knows about "him" so better not spoil. It's pretty sure we're going to have more modern days, considering Syndicate, as I said, a new cycle is starting, with a new modern day protagonist I can't wait to meet ! I couldn't agree more about the idea of games set out of Europe and North America ! It's time to open our horizons to other places and cultures. I think the stealthy or not stealthy aspect is really a matter of taste. I personally loved it in the last games, so... Also the last games are going to be connected somehow, it's been quite discussed on the Council on how and when but if we consider that there are cycles in the game timeline, with three games each time (Ezio trilogy, American trilogy - may include Liberation) ; the next game will probably the key to everything. The music in Syndicate actually got a lot of rewards xD I liked it, I thought it corresponded with the setting. Once again, personal tastes ! As a french, I'm really flattered : so many people complain about the lack of french in Unity. I have no idea why we're so popular, but I agree, more accents, more different languages ! I loved the naval mission, but I've had enough too. However, I loved Black Flag : the idea of seeing an Assassin becoming an Assassin, understanding the creed at the very end, I enjoyed it. It showed us how Edward evolved all the way from a greedy idiot to a responsible man, and it changed from seeing Assassins being born assassins ^^

    You mention Egypt, is it confirmed or still a rumor?

    The Dress code in liberation was a game systems that made the game unique from the others, like freeing slaves in Freedom Cry or Crafting Customization bombs in Revelations. Navel Missions were fine, I loved boarding and being boarded in Rouge. That said, Edward was a dick.

    The Hashashin of Masyaf were not the original Assassins though. They were formed in prehistory. Xerxes was assassinated by an Assassin. The chamber in Monterriggioni had statues of notable Assassins.

    Instead of Desmond, a new character should be introduced.Desmond is dead.What is dead should remain dead.
