Assassin's Creed WW2 China appears online, leaving fans stunned

Assassin’s Creed fans are always eager for more. Given that each installment takes the franchise to new locales and time periods, as well as giving us new characters, it allows a lot of speculation for future releases.

On Reddit, a recent piece of fan art got everybody talking about the possibility of an Assassin’s Creed game set in China during World War 2. Sadly, this will never likely happen as Ubisoft already has a game set within China coming up for mobile platforms in Assassin’s Creed Jade. This had fans chatting away about what would be cool to see from a WW2 game as the time period has only been briefly visited during Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Assassin's Creed Codename Red will finally take us to Japan.

Jade will actually be the second time the franchise heads to China as it was once the backdrop to a side-scrolling mobile title starring Shao Jun. However, the World Wars don’t seem to get any visits from our assassins. As one Redditor points out, this could be due to the advanced weaponry, “Parkour and melee combat would be effectively useless due to the firearms. It would end up being a Splinter Cell game set in WW2.” Which, to be honest, sounds great.

While this post is looking in the wrong direction, it does bring us to Asia with upcoming title, Assassin’s Creed Codename Red, which finally takes the series to Japan, something fans have begged for since the series began. There’s a lot of excitement building towards this entry in the franchise, as this user expresses: “Every time I see some concept or info about AC in China (or even AC Red), I'm a little bit more excited to play Red.” You and me both. The series is moving in a great direction since Mirage, and taking us to a world of stealth and samurais can only improve the franchise further.
