Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 5 could be set on a new and different location this time; Egypt.

After exploring the Middle East, Italy, Turkey, the US and the Caribbean islands in the previous versions, the next setting for the game could reportedly be Egypt, according to Ashraf Ismail, creative director of the soon-to-release Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.  

"The President of the company has said that we will ship an annual title, so it's out there. We've been on this game for almost two years; it'll be two and a half when we ship. I would say one of the best things we have going for us is how we can play with history. History is something that is rooted in all of us; we all have a deeper connection to it. So there's a lot of interesting periods and time places we haven't been to that I would to see," Ismail said in an interview to Examiner.

"I'm not saying we are going there. But one day I would love to explore Egypt as a setting for this game. Ancient Egypt could be a really cool place. We have a really cool explanation for how we can do this, and it is with this Animus device that allows us to go to anytime in history," he added.

However, Ismail did not promise that the next game will be set in Egypt but, with the Animus device, Egypt could be one of the locations that the protagonist might head to.

"I'm not saying Egypt is where the next one is going, it's just where I would like it to go," he clarified.

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is expected to release on 29 October for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Its PlayStation 4 version is slated to go out on 15 November and Xbox One version on 22 November.
