'Assassin’s Creed 4' director: ‘the ending to this game decides who Edward is'

With what we have seen thus far from Assassin's Creed 4, it is a game that looks to redefine the Assassin's Creed franchise, but it also is bringing a protagonist that players should be able to relate to more than any other previous assassin.

Edward Kenway is the grandfather of Connor Kenway, who was the main protagonist in Assassin's Creed III. Edward's story looks like it will be one that is less about saving a nation, and more about finding who he is as a man.

That is the sentiment that Assassin's Creed 4 game director shared with us, when Examiner spoke exclusively with Assassin's Creed 4 game director Ashraf Ismail about Edward Kenway. (Ashraf Ismail, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I wish they do a game showing how haythem was fooled into becoming a templar. AC forsaken the novel tells you but man it's so good it should of been a game. It falls right into the ending to AC3.

Maybe on handheld , or as some mission in another game , could be cool . However i'd rather have the next AC games keep focusing on adding new characters

Well that is why I wanted this game to be AS3: Black Flags instead of AC4.

Like how we had 3 Ezio games with the AC2 series I thought it would of been good to show you different sides of AC3 but because Connor was a crappy character you would play in one game Edward and in the other Haytham. It might of made you feel more sympathetic to him, he was an amazing character in AC3 and I wish he was a good guy. I'm still convinced they were going to have him as a good guy and have George Washington as the templar with the other founding fathers in a templar group like how Haytham has his templar group but because of the high risk of Americans getting ticked off they decided to scrap it

This game is a prequel to AC III Im interested to see how this all plays out with Edward Kenway is he a Assassin or is he a Templar ? With his son (Haytham Kenway) being a Templar and Edwards bad ass attitude it seems you talk a walk on the wild side this time
Edward Kenway (AC 4) - Templar GRANDFATHER
Haytham Kenway (AC 3) - Templar SON
Conner Kenway (AC3) - Assassin GRANDSON

If you read assassin's creed forsaken, you would know the origin story of haytham kenway and his journey to becoming a templar from childhood as well as known about his father edward kenway and the fact he is not a templar. Its the only book i reccomend reading since it does not exclusively cover the game,(the other books i did not bother since they are basically the game) you also find out what happens to edward kenway (how he meets his end). Excellent book if you want to learn all about haytham kenway/ a bit of edward.
