'Assassin's Creed 5': Settings Ideas For Modern-Day Are Endless Due To 'Several Entry Points' From 'New' Present Day?
"Assassin's Creed 5" remains is shrouded in mystery, but "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag" creative director Jean Guesdon revealed how the modern-day story line has evolved.
Warning: AC game spoilers ahead
In an interview with Game Informer, Guesdon commented on the direction the developers are heading with the series since introducing the The Instruments of the First Will in AC4.
"We have opened up a few narrative threads and themes in the present day that we would like to play with, but like we already said the 'new' present day is our real world and this has impact at many different levels. For example, as you can already see on ACInitiates.com we now have several entry points to the modern-day. In short, we have shifted to the present day being more of a 'persistent context' for future games," Guesdon told Game Informer.

Whatever the modern-day storyline for the rumored "Assassin's Creed 5" title may be, developers have confirmed the game will not be released until its 100 percent complete by Ubisoft's standards.
"If we think we've ended up with a 70 percent Assassin's Creed game, we're not going to ship it," Ubisoft North American president Laurent Detoc told IGN. "That damages the brand. I'm not going to give you the names of products, because you know them as well as I do, but if you start to make games at 70 percent, even with a big brand, eventually people are going to change their mind about that brand. They won't want it anymore. That's what saves the recurrence."
However, Detoc explained that Ubisoft would try to avoid delaying the game across all platforms, but the company will do so if the quality isn't there. (Click here for more info)
