THE BUZZ: Ubisoft is looking to round off Desmond’s story in style by throwing him into a new location and giving him some big events to work through.
“Assassin’s Creed 3 begins directly after Assassin’s Creed Revelations, with Desmond waking up and arriving at a brand new present day location. We’re not talking about it in detail yet but we promise some serious resolutions in Desmond’s storyline and some big events,” Alexander Hutchison, creative director on Assassin’s Creed III, told NowGamer.
“Our goal with Desmond is to resolve a big chunk of the dangling threads in Assassin’s Creed 3 and to provide some sense of closure to people who’ve been with us from the start. I have been banned by PR from saying anything else, but stay tuned.”
EGM’s TAKE: Desmond’s character has grown in importance over the course of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. From only playing a bit part in the first game to having whole sections of story devoted to him in the later entries. He is the central character, every event that occurs revolves around him and his challenge of stopping Doomsday and the Templars. The developers have promised that Assassin’s Creed III will bring his story to an end, but how will they choose to end it? Will he succeed or fail? Will he ever be seen again? Assassin’s Creed III will hopefully answer these questions.
