Assassin’s Creed 4 Explains Why There Will Not Be Game Set In Present Era

So, you know, stop asking about it.

Still craving a modern-day version of Assassin’s Creed, even if Watch Dogs and to some extent Remember Me find ways to incorporate the same gameplay into more contemporary settings? Don’t expect it any time soon, since Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag contains an interesting Easter Egg that explains just why Abstergo Entertainment – the organization in charge of the Animus and a front for the Templars in the series – will be avoiding modern day settings.

Specifically, it’s due to the use of vehicles that the series avoids any modern day settings. This is because “‘memory imprinting’ in individuals is actually hampered by the semi-catatonic state most people enter when driving for medium and long periods of time – and this makes data retrieval somewhat more difficult.” It then states that it doesn’t want to go to the extra effort to code Animus features for the sake of “digging up memories of people driving around in cars. There are other and more efficient ways to experience that…”

Is that Ubisoft’s way of saying that driving in cars in open world games is boring and is better reserved for real life? What are your thoughts on the same?
