Assassin’s Creed lead writer Darby McDevitt was asked at the San Diego Comic-Con whether or not a future installment in the franchise could take place in the present day. While McDevitt was open to the idea, he claimed that one of the series’ main attractions is “historical tourism”. Here’s what he said, according to the official Assassin’s Creed Twitter feed:

Q: Are you planning a modern AC?

Darby:
There’s always a chance, but one of the biggest draws of the series is the historical “tourism.”

The series has gone on for quite some time, but there’s certainly no shortage of time periods to visit before the modern day. The official Assassin’s Creed Twitter also dropped another quote from McDevitt, where he expressed interest in a shogunate Assassin’s Creed:

Lead Writer Darby McDevitt: I think the Shogunate is in a cool era, but it’s not up to one person, and whatever we do, we’ll make it cool.

Having a future installment set in the modern day raises some interesting questions. Where would it take place? Who would be the protagonist or antagonist? Share your image of a modern-day Assassin’s Creed in the comment section!
