Well, exotic means different things to different people. While I have learned about the American Revolution and about American history in general, it has always been on a superficial level. To me, the North American continent is something far away and unknown. To me, an AC game in England is far less attractive than on the American continent. Sure, feudal China or Japan and other ideas that have been circulating would be amazing settings for an AC game, but I'm certainly not complaining. Besides, we can still get those, the franchise doesn't end with Desmond's story.
So yeah, looking forward to it. And with three years of development under its belt, I do expect something exceptional. Make it happen, Ubisoft!
