Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations hinting at an Istanbul setting for the next game.
The new teaser flashed the numbers 24061459 and a Tughra on top of a picture of the Hagia Sophia, the largest cathedral in the world for nearly a thousand years until 1520 located in Istanbul.
The numbers represent a date: 24.06.1459, or June 24, 1459, the birth date of Ezio from Assassin’s Creed 2 and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
The Tughra shown belongs to Suleiman the Magnificent, who ruled the Ottoman Empire from 1520 until 1566.
So it’s very possible that Assassin’s Creed: Revelation will be another direct sequel to ACII (which takes place in 1499) and Brotherhood (which takes place from 1499-1507).
Assassin’s Creed is a flagship product for Ubisoft. Some Ubisoft Montreal’s developers stated in their interviews that Assassin’s Creed III will be released eventually.
The game will introduce a new character in an entirely new setting.
The clues clearly point towards an Istanbul setting.
