Next Assassin's Creed set in Brazil?
[UPDATE] Ubisoft Brazil managing director says next entry in stealth action series taking to South American country; original story updated removing all mention.
[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Techtudo updated its original report. The line that previously stated the "next chapter" in the Assassin's Creed franchise would be set in Brazil now suggests Ubisoft is working on a "web-based history" of Brazil, though nothing has been decided.
The original story follows below.
The next Assassin's Creed game may be set in Brazil. Ubisoft Brazil managing director Bertrand Chaverot told Techtudo this week that the next entry in the company's stealth action series is heading to the South American country.
The report was published in Portuguese, and GameSpot has confirmed the translation. A representative from Ubisoft's North American outfit was not immediately available for comment.
The Assassin's Creed franchise is no stranger to Brazil. This year's Assassin's Creed III had missions set in the South American country.
Ubisoft has released a new core Assassin's Creed game every year since 2009, though no new entry is confirmed for 2013. However, a recent Ubisoft survey suggested a new game in the franchise--that may include co-op--could be on store shelves next year.
