Yeah, I’m excited. Not about the historical setting, however. I feel UBI Soft jumped a little too fast through world history, going from Jerusalem (Assassin’s Creed 1) to Italy-Rome-Constantinople (Assassin’s Creed 2 trilogy) and now the American Revolution. I’d have to assume Assassin’s Creed 4 would be current-day street thugs and the like.
However now we can speculate that Abraham Lincoln is a Templar, and John Wilkes Booth is an Assassin, right?
Perhaps that the Assassin’s are Native Americans (Indians) whereas the Templars are Colonists? Assassin’s Creed III: Oregon Trail? Discuss!
