Throughout Shao Jun’s journey, she encountered several Assassin Insignias at various points. Each had a four-digit number hidden beneath it when the Chinese Assassin looked at them through her Eagle Vision.

The numbers, and their locations are;

0322 (Memory 3) - The Port
1021 (Memory 7) - The Snake
3102 (Memory 9) - An Old Friend

The significance of these numbers is currently unknown.

- There are three of these numbers throughout the game. There are three Chronicles games.
- Three numbers, four digits each = 12. AC games have 12 Sequences.
- They're found in Memories 3, 7 and 9. 379?
- The sum of numbers in every "column" from left to right is; 4, 4, 4, 5.
- The sum of numbers in every "row" from top to bottom is; 7, 4, 6

Right ahead what intrigues me is that there are no numbers above 3. If you pick 12 random 0-9 numbers, there's bound to be a couple higher than 3.

Binary code uses 0,1. Is there a code that uses 0,1,2,3? Quaternary code? Yes there is.

0322
1021
3102
These numbers into decimal numbers would give:
58
73
210

For some reason, I like that they are in low to high order. Do these numbers have any significance in the AC universe?

Ubisoft's pricing model for CurrentGen systems:
Black Flag: $58
Unity + Chronicles: $73
Victory: $210

They are low to high in order in any base. Even if you calculated as if they were from hexadecimal you'd still arrive at hte same order.

Ah, of course. I just didn't notice until they were in decimal.

I hope that the next games will yield numbers that continue this upward trend.

Hey remember when there was that one AC game where they discovered that the number 72 (or whatever) was super important and everything matched to it and it was this weird impossible thing, and then it was never ever actually important even a little bit after they brought it up that one time?

Sure hope that doesn't happen here!

The difference is that it was significant within AC Brotherhood alone. (The satellite launch, the code, etc.)
These numbers aren't even significant within AC Chronicles China itself.

Next, in AC Revelations: Lost Legacy the Binary Code on the wall reveals;
"Clay Created Adam Created Clay" (as in Adam Created Clay Kaczmarek - Subject 16, by way of ancestry etc.)

That's really what sets this apart. We know what those numbers meant back then - if not for the whole series, then for their respective games. We don't know what these numbers mean, and they're obviously here for a reason. Stuck under Assassin Symbols, only visible through Eagle Vision is clearly deliberate placement.

I'm with Gerund. There are three different Chronicles games. I wouldn't be at all surprised if more numbers were found in AC India and AC Russia. I'll update this thread with them when I inevitably First-Day purchase those games (based on how much fun I had with AC China) and find me some digits.

I think it's the release date of each repective game
China : 03/22/15 (I know the game release in 04/22/15, but the original date was in mars when it was announce as a DLC for AC : Unity)
India : Would expect it the 10/21/15 (if you chek in uplay all the achievement and the rewards are already here so it makes a lot of sense)
Russia : 02/31/16 (they change the side to make us believe that it was some secret patern)

This is my theory!
