14Avoid: Industrial Revolution
Assassin’s Creed is going to come up a lot and, if it’s taught me one thing, it’s that the Industrial Revolution is a horrible setting for a video game. I sort of enjoyed waltzing around Victorian era London in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, but I might rip my eyes out playing
an action shooter in that setting. Unless the developers decide to throw in an alternative genre like steampunk into the mix, which The Order: 1886 pulled off to some extent, I can’t see it being all that interesting. It all just looks too familiar and I feel the stories would all come back to powerful elites in a big city controlling the energy resources. This time period is just too stale for a franchise that likes to take it up a notch.
