  1. YOU MUST DO THIS, Chao Yuan Xu (Someone tell him!): Find a way to suggest Ubisoft to make a game based off your art. I bet there is a suggestion option somewhere on their website. My heart is literally rotting because they didn’t even consider this enough. They made Black Flag and now Unity. THIS MUST BECOME A GAME. The assassin you made is epic, and I love the dual Jian swords. Your art is melting my brain, it hurts to look at it because its painful that Ubisoft hasn’t done this yet. Please, do your best to get Ubisoft to make the Chinese Assassin’s Creed. You can find a spot that will support the storyline, and so can Ubisoft. The Creed isn’t just in Europe and the America’s for sure. The swords look like they are from the Han Dynasty. The Han dynasty ended in 220 A.D. and started in 206 B.C. You can have it take place at the end of Han Dynasty. It could be where the Piece of Eden was founded! They don’t need the outside the animus story, they already left Desmond and left the outside of the animus storyline at the end of Black Flag. They also went to 1700’s back to 1600’s then they are going to late 1700’s again for Unity. And it won’t hurt to do a story before Altaïr, the Apple of Eden wasn’t always in the same spot. It would be the best Assassin’s Creed if your art came true in my opinion. Maud, Altaïr’s mother and Umar Ibn La’Ahad’s wife, could be related to your assassin, Maud’s ancestor’s father or something. If there were to be an outside of the animus story, abstergo or Desmond’s dad wants to go deeper, far beyond Altaïr’s life. Take my idea as your own, I will allow it :P JUST MAKE IT REAL! No, seriously, take my idea and go for it. I don’t want to use your own art, you have to :) Show Ubisoft your art if you can find a way to suggest something to them. You could be their Artist! Your art could be unlock-able in game :P They have to work hard for the best art to be visible, the art made by you. :D
