Re: The most recent game you've played now/today?
There were a bunch of rumors floating around when ACII was in development and shortly after release. I've heard Colonial America, Feudal Japan (which makes no sense to go BACKWARDS in time after Renaissance Italy), the current time with Desmond having full access to his Assassin skills from the Bleed effect. I've even heard Revolutionary War America with a female main character.
I know in the 3DS game coming out it's gonna have Ezio go to Masyaf to explore the Assassin's former stronghold and learn more about the guild.
