For this round of Assassin's Creed Community Questions, we invited Michael Doyle, member of the Assassin's Creed Partnership Program // Isu Network's Writing Team.


Col: Hi Michael, thanks for joining us today! Please could you tell us a little bit about yourself and your connection to the Assassin's Creed Community.

Michael: Hi I'm Michael, I'm 25 years old and I'm from the UK. I've been playing video games for as long as I can remember, with the first game I ever played being Cool Boarders on the PS1. My connection to Assassin's Creed began when I was about 10/11 years old, getting the first game on release in my local Blockbuster. One of my favourite early memories from Assassin’s Creed is a horse glitch that launched my character across the map.  More recently, my close friendship with TOWCB admin team has brought me back into the AC Community.


Col: Which Assassin's Creed game is your favourite and why?

Michael: AC III - I loved the history, weapons, different environments and Connor’s character development. Especially with the twist that his father was a Templar. I also loved the introduction of the battle ship mechanics, which was a great addition to the franchise. 


Col: Have you visited any of the locations from the games? 

Michael: I’ve been to Rome, where I was able to explore the Castel Sant'Angelo, the Pantheon, the Sistine Chapel and the Colosseum. Whilst at the Castel Sant’Angelo I also recreated some assassin parkour photos.


Col: What would be your dream setting for the upcoming AC Netflix TV show.

Michael: My ideal location for an upcoming AC Netflix TV show would be Egypt, as this is one of my favourite historical periods and would be totally unique. 


Col: Where do you personally think the franchise is heading to next, and are you excited for the future of Assassin's Creed?

Michael: I’d love to see the franchise do something in the modern day, almost like the Kingsman, with honour and tradition in todays world. The idea of a modern day assassin in futurist city like Singapore or Dubai would be interesting take. 


Col: What are some of your most recent Assassin's Creed Community Projects, and what are you working on currently?

Michael: As I am new to the community I have only just starting writing content. So far I have recently written a Valhalla weapons guide for a fire build. However, I am looking to do more of this content over the coming months with a focus on how-to, and tips and tricks to optimise gameplay. 



Col: Do you have any personal AC goals you would like to achieve?

Michael: I have always wanted to speed run an assassins creed game, preferably AC III. I have speed ran a number of games in the past such as Skyrim and Crisis 2, but never an AC game. I’d also love to meet the voice actor of Ezio. 


Col: What do you think Ubisoft are planning to show at the September AC event?

Michael: I think Ubisoft are planning to show the new AC Title, in addition to the AC Infinity hub which I can see being marketed as a similar platform to the Halo Master Chief Collection/Halo Waypoint. 

All we can hope for is that the Ubisoft showcase is going to be more exciting than the September Apple announcements. 


Col: Do you collect AC merchandise? If so, what if your favourite item?

Michael: Not yet… I do collect Marvel, Harry Potter, Pokémon and Star Wars merchandise. The only AC merchandise that I remember owning is an original AC poster from HMV. If I could own any one piece of AC merchandise it would actually be a game, and that would be the Ezio Collection. 


Col: Where can our community members find you online?

Michael: I have a new Twitter account where I keep track of the AC community and all the latest Ubisoft content.


We would like to say a huge thank you to Michael for joining us for this round of AC Community Questions!
