Assassin's Creed 4 features new characters

In an interview game director Alex Hutchinson spilled his beans about the future of Assassin's Creed. According to Hutchinson Ubisoft will make AC games as long as gamers want it. In Assassin's Creed 3 some story lines will end (Desmond Miles) and in Assassin's Creed 4 new characters will come to life. (Alex Hutchinson, Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Ubisoft, Wii U, Xbox 360)

"In Assassin's Creed 3 some story lines will end (Desmond Miles)"
Thanks a lot for the major spoiler. /s

He didn't say Desmond dies or anything, just that this game will conclude his story segment. We might see him in AC4 as the head of the guild or something regardless.
Kran  +   948d ago
Its not that. Its the fact we now know we probably wont see Desmond in AC4.

But like you said, we might see him

I prefer him as the role he plays though (a sort of side-main character)

It was billed as a trilogy from the begin with.

Like saying Darth Vader's story ends with Return of the Jedi, it's only a spoiler if you're a complete and utter moron.

Take it easy with the insults.
Not everyone remembers, or cares about, every word that a game dev says.

I'm beginning to see a pattern with you.

*SPOILERS* You are a rude little kid.
Nate-Dog  +   947d ago
Orly? Because most trilogies don't have 5 games out before the end of the trilogy is released.
sriki007  +   948d ago
that's obvious, because of the whole 2012 thing..

Always knew AC3 wouldn't be the final entry in the series.

If it was, Ubisoft would have been advertising it as the conclusion to the entire franchise but they've only been saying it will conclude Desmond's story.

As long as they keep the story fresh I don't think they will have a problem. The problem with the last 3 is it was a continued story which might have turned a few people off. From what I said about peoples complaints was the story got boring. I think if they keep it like a final fantasy they will do fine.

AC 1, AC 2, AC brotherhood, AC revelations, AC 3 and AC 4 announced eh idk got bored of it after 1. this it got stranger and stranger. but looks cool ill give it that. native americans FTW!

How the hell did 2 bore you it was way better than 1

Despite how bland Desmond was he's a part of the AC franchise...take that away and it will feel they will be forcing in stories. It's up to Ubisoft to make Desmond interesting, we can't be surprzed Desmond is the way he is because we hardly see him.

I mean wouldn't it be good to finally do a full game with Desmond in mordern day city with brief flashbacks to historical events featuring a new Assassin. Doing a flashback would be great since they wouldn't need the Animus and when you finish the flashback leel you could continue with Desmond

I totally agree.. Im not sure how interested i'll be in the series once Desmond's story concludes. I for one love the subplot to the game and am really excited to see the conclusion. But calling the game AC4 and not having Desmond in there just wouldn't seem right.
user5467007  +   948d ago
All they really need to do for the next trilogy is get rid of the Animus an just include flasback levels that relate to he story we are experiencing in he present...like it may relate to the templars new plans Desmond has to stop.

The flashbacks would then explain the templar plan like it could of been done before and the templars in the present are trying to do it again.

Anything is possible but Desmond has to stay...they already got rid of Lucy, Desmond is the only connection left to AC. I mean what would happen if you took Nathan Drake away from Uncharted or do a Heavenly Sword 2 without Nariko...it just wouldn't work. Hell even the Halo spin offs don't feel as epic because your not playing as the Master Chief.

Yeah, and even the Halo spin-offs at least had something to do with the main plot. It seems as if they will go in a whole new direction with AC4
rpd123  +   948d ago
But Assassins Creed really wouldn't work modern day. In modern cities there are rarely any footholds on buildings and guns would completely ruin traditional Assassin's Creed gameplay. It'd be cool as a spin off type series where they switch things up and introduce new game play. But it shouldn't be Assassins Creed 4.

Not much left now...

You're seriously going to complain about Assassin's Creed being milked. Wow, at least they've improved on every game and AC3 is literally a new direction. Gamers these days.
Zack_Fair  +   948d ago
Enough of assassin's creed.
rpd123  +   948d ago
Coming from the guy with a Final Fantasy character as his user name and image. What game are they on now?
turgore  +   948d ago
I hoped Assasins Creed 3 brotherhood set in England or France.
phantomexe  +   948d ago
i'd bet france but who knows this time period is packed full of cool stuff that was going on. IMO assassin creed dosn't need desmond to survive as a long running franchise. i'm really stoked for AC3. i only get this way for uncharted or ac games.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   948d ago
I wonder where AC4 will take place? Im gonna guess that AC3 will end with desmond saving the world but not stopping the templars in modern times and continue from there.
lorcraven  +   948d ago
I hate it when developers start talking about sequels this early, can we at least wait till AC3 is released before all the AC4 coverage.
Nate-Dog  +   947d ago
They did the exact same thing with Brotherhood and Revelations. I'm honestly sick to death of Ubisoft doing this, it's like they honestly don't care about each release and all they're looking at is the $$$ they see over people's heads.
