Assassinís Creed Game Director Says History Is Their Playground
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.13.2014



Speaking to IGN, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag game director Ashraf Ismail talked about the direction the franchise might go in with Assassin's Creed V. According to Ismail, the gameplay features would be dictated by the time period the development team would like to explore.

Ismail stated: "With Assassin's Creed we always say that history is our playground. When we chose the pirate setting, obviously it meant naval battles had to be a core element of the game. The questions are always about what time periods we go into, but that's a decision based on whether these time periods are interesting for fans, interesting for us as developers, and what it'd mean for the game mechanics.

He added: "We don't bind ourselves to game mechanics, but we really look at what is interesting historically speaking, and what game mechanics that naturally brings up. Hopefully then, the fans love and enjoy it. We're here to enjoy the BAFTAs so I can't really talk about the future of the brand or where it's going, I won't even acknowledge that a game is in the works! So I don't want to talk about what's the future for naval and all this, but I love that people loved it in Black Flag. It was a risk for us to make it part of the core of an Assassin's game, but people really took to it and loved it, which is really gratifying for us. As I said though, whatever period in time we choose? That's what dictates the kind of mechanics we put in the game, not the other way around."

Two new Assassin's Creed games will reportedly be released later this year: one on Xbox One and PS4; and another for Xbox 360 and PS3.
