Coincidence? Or was it planned from the start?

Alright this is a bit stupid and random but I thought it was interesting (and perhaps a bit funny) anyway.

If this game is set during the American Revolution which is around 200 years after the events of Assassin's Creed 2 if I remember correctly.

The American Revolution started in 1775, if we say 1775 + 200 we get 1975 (which in theory could be where a theoretical AC 4 could be set).

Looking on Wikipedia's page for 1975 the first entry is the Altair 8800 - Coincidence right?

EDIT: Also we have plenty of Cold War stuff and the Vietnam War in 1975 so there are plenty of events for a Assassin's Creed 4 :)

Yeah, that's a coincidence.

we barely know anything about ACIII aside from that leaked artwork and you're speculating about ACIV?

seriously?

@DeF: I'm mostly joking about AC4 but when looking at how Ubisoft have handled the AC franchise so far, I would be surprised if we don't get an Assassin's Creed 4. Though I hope they understand the importance of closure and will tie it up nicely in AC3...

@Village_Guy: another AC game after ACIII is as sure as sunrise but there really is no point in speculating about anything at this point.

we don't even know if they're gonna do a sub-trilogy again or something like that ...maybe we'll be switching characters and time periods/locations in ACIII already.

Altair is an abbreviation of an Arabic phrase meaning The Flying Eagle.

But the Altair 8800 sparked a revolution in microcomputers so I can see the parallel appeal.

You know what? As much as this is looking waaaay too far into something...

I bet someone at Ubi actually thought the same thing.

You know what makes Assassin's Creed so fucking awesome? It's barely even the game anymore for me.

It's how deep they are willing to get into history, crazy little details about mankind's time on this Earth, and how fanatical we can all dig into all this shit and either find out something we didn't know before or spout off about things that we DO know.

I cannot WAIT to hear more speculations about the stuff this game will present. I'm really hoping that the Game Informer article doesn't spoil a ton of shit.

Also, I now feel like I have the incentive to go play Revelations for more than two hours.

Around Brotherhood I was an AC nut, loved those truth puzzles and such. Have to admit Revelations was a real downer for the series, and I have lost some interest. AC and AC2 felt like they knew exactly where they were going, hell even Brotherhood did but they seem to be a tad lost recently.

An implied coincidence, yes.

I am going to go on a hunch and say there will be no closure in AC3.

Now AC5.2 or 5.3 sure but..

It never was the game for me, the game is fine, but the reason i finished AC1 in one sitting was the story, you should read up on the AC encyclopedia, that shit is awesome
