Are you ready for a revolution? According to the rumor mill, Assassin’s Creed 3 is likely to take place during conflict between the British colonists and native Americans at the time of the American Revolution. The rumor comes from CVG, who claims to have a source close to the project.
From a completely speculative standpoint, an American setting makes sense. Brotherhood’s “Da Vinci Disappearance” DLC pointed players to coordinates in the state of New York. And, in keeping with Assassin’s Creed lore, George Washington is said to possess the Apple of Eden.
Of course, AC3 has also been rumored to take place in a variety of settings, including during the Pharaoh’s reign in Egypt, Medieval China and Victorian England. CVG’s source claims that we’ll get a public showcase before the end of March, which will finally put these pesky speculations to rest once and for all.
