Put on your make-believe hats, this fan-made trailer imagines what an Assassin’s Creed game would look like during WWII.

Assassin’s Creed games can take place almost anywhere at any time. That being said, very few have dared to venture into a more modern setting, instead sticking to ancient civilisations, mediaeval times and similar time periods. The closest we’ve gotten to the 1900’s was Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which takes place in the 1860’s.

The next game Ubisoft plans to release for the series is Assassin’s Creed Red, which will be set in Feudal Japan, and after that it’ll reportedly be Assassin’s Creed Hexe, which is rumoured to take place during the European witch trials.

Now a fan-made trailer has imagined what a more modern release could look like, blending footage from Call Of Duty: Vanguard, Sniper Elite 5 and Battlefield 5 to create a concept for a WWII Assassin’s Creed game.

Obviously there’s nothing new here as it’s all footage from existing games, though the concept itself is well-worth pondering. We have actually seen glimpses of the future in Assassin’s Creed games before. During Assassin’s Creed Unity, players could enter a time rift that sees them scale the Eiffel Tower while being attacked by WWII fighter planes, and in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate players could see London during the first World War.

Whether Ubisoft decides to go all-in with a more modern setting remains to be seen, though there’s no denying it could work. Modern cities have plenty of verticality for parkour, and with a few modern gadgets to make it more manageable or realistic like a grappling hook or supernatural artefact there’s potential for some of the best open-world sandboxes the franchise has seen so far.

For the next few years at least, the Assassin’s Creed games will be stuck in the past though maybe one day we’ll get a modern release.
