Assassin’s Creed has been everywhere: Israel, Atlantis, The Moon, Versace’s House. Everywhere, man. Not a place that series hasn’t and won’t go to. So here we are today calling bullshit on recent rumors that Egypt is the next setting. Look, Ubisoft, you do you. You can do whatever you want to do, okay? Far be it from us to tell you what you should and shouldn’t do with your franchise. But you’re missing out on a huge goldmine that’s right under your nose. There’s been a very obvious choice that fans have been foaming at the mouth for. No, I’m not talking about Japan. What? We weren’t even thinking about some modern day NYC.
ASSASSIN’S CREED: COMPTON
Picture this; West Side versus East Side.
Remember their drama and when Tupac got shot? You’re in the neck of it. NWA is also there. Shit gets crazy.
Tupac gets shot, right? And you and your homies are like, “Yo, that’s messed up.” ‘Cause you’re assassins living the thug life and it’s all about that ride or die, you know? So you guys decide that you have to make things right. But little did you know that you’re all just pawns in the grand scheme and lo and behold you’re in yet another Assassin’s Creed shenanigan as Tupac’s murderers turn out to be templars.
You ride around in Cadillacs this time.
Your weapons are glocks.
Eazy-E is the Master Assassin.
The Templars are trying to commercialize rap to find a Piece of Eden hidden within a Platinum record.
The fate of humanity lies in your hands again or some shit.
It would be incredible, Ubisoft. You know you’re down with this idea at least a little bit.
