Assassin's Creed 3 Art Director Says "Asian or South American setting"

Yesterday Ubisoft opened a small Assassin's Creed art exhibition for invited guests from the arts and media in Munich, Germany. When questioned about the possible setting for Assassin's Creed III, the artistic director Mohamed Gambouz said "Asian or South American".

The traveling art exhibition has previously stopped at Paris and Montreal to show off artwork previously not seen by the public for all previous three Assassin's Creed games. Only 50 guests were invited yesterday, and one journalist who attended managed to sit down with the artistic director for Assassin's Creed III, Mohammed Gambouz.

After a brief talk about the exhibition, the interview wrapped up by looking towards Assassin's Creed III. The question that was asked was, "What can you say about Assassin's Creed 3? Which setting are you thinking about now, when you think about AC3?"

His answer was the following:
Well, I personally would do something completely new. Maybe something in an Asian or South American setting, at least nothing that we have already made. But in the end it's not my decision. But you can be sure that we read the reactions of our customers in forums, blogs and Facebook and Twitter very closely and also seriously talk through the suggestions from our players from time to time. In the next few months you will truly experience more details.

The above quote suggests that the team are yet to decide on the setting of the next installment of the Assassin's Creed series, that or he has a good poker face.

There are plenty of historical revolutions in both of these regions. Asia has long been talked about by fans, but what about South America? Most of the colonies of southern South America, such as Chile, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay fought their wars of independence against the Spanish forces. This could certainly be a very cool setting, and one that would give Assassin's Creed 3 a very different feel.

As a bonus, here's a few examples from the exhibition:
