To be fair, the tip also mentioned that Medieval Europe could be a potential setting, but that's boring. We've already done old times with white people twice. Let's get some badass ninja and samurai in there!
On a German gaming television show called PLAY'D, Ubisoft’s Philippe Bergeron mentioned a couple of possible settings for Assassin's Creed 3.
There are two things that come to mind: There is medieval Europe, which would be very interesting trying to play a King Arthur story line. Another one that is a personal favorite of a lot of people on the floor is feudal Japan, which is something that would be very interesting just culturally to discover and I think also to make players discover as well.
Look, I know none of this is set in stone, but if they pick something like Europe over Japan, my eyes will roll so hard that they may fall out. Ancient China could also be cool.
