As relayed from the company's Twitter feed, McDevitt said, "there's always a chance, but one of the biggest draws of the series is the historical 'tourism.'"

Past entries in the Assassin's Creed series have been set during various periods in history, including Colonial America, the Third Crusade, and the Renaissance.

Also during the panel, McDevitt offered a more concrete tease about the future of the Assassin's Creed series, saying a feudal Japan setting excites him.

"I think the Shogunate is in a cool era, but it's not up to one person, and whatever we do, we'll make it cool," he said.

Ubisoft also used its Comic-Con showing to reveal an all-new Assassin's Creed comic book called Assassin's Creed: Brahman. It takes place in 19th century India under British rule and stars new hero Arbaaz Mir. The comic will release later this fall alongside Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
