Ubisoft's new Assassin's Creed game will again star Italian hero Ezio, Ubisoft has confirmed - and will be created by the same studios behind AC2. The publisher today revealed that the story of the game will be a "follow-up" to AC2.
That sucks. I liked Altair better but I know he was in the past.
I like Ezio better, but honestly I thought they would just release Sequences 12 and 13 as DLC, and AC3 would be focused on Desmond in the real world. I loved AC2, probably my #2 sandbox game this gen(A+ Game), but I really don't want them to rehash the world. Pick Spain, France, Colonial America, someplace new and original.
That's odd. The ending for AC2 made it seem like it would be Desmond's turn next to do the assassin skills he acquired thru animus. Afterall, after you uncover the secret and view the ending, it seemed like Ezio's journey was at an end.
yeah i thought it would be Desmond as well because of the ending. weird.
Altair had his story after aquiring the piece of eden. So I guess now it's Ezio's turn. And it will probably be on console because it will gain a lot more sales then.
I was hoping to finally play as Desmond. The way AC2 ended it seemed that Desmond was ready to go. I mean he even got Altair's hidden blade. I was ready to put that into Abstergo's a$$. Aww well lets not doubt the team. They did make a great game and I'm sure they will come through again.
Guys dont take this as confirmation I'm sure earlier I read that it is NOT a sequel.. so it wont be AC3 Seriously I'm 99% sure..
If I hadn't finished AC2 yesterday, I would have been SOO MAD!! But I wanted more from the ending :( It didn't wrap anything up, lol.
I think Assassin's Creed Episodes will star Ezio, but AC3 will be different project.
Ezio + Altair = Online Co-op?
I think they should stop making AC while they're ahead. the last one was fantastic and trumped nearly every complaint about the first one. So leave the series alone now and let us remember it for what it is. Not every game needs a dozen sequels, and often incorporating more titles in the series really just ends up diluting the quality of the series as a whole.
I loved AC2 and I think there's still more to explore in Ezio's story. Didn't really get to explore Rome, and the rest of Italy was perfect for an Assassin. I prefer they don't jump too far into the future too fast, if they go present day only, where are they gonna go next? AC4:Modern Assassin? Ergh!
I really was hoping for a modern assassin especially with guns involved to make Desmond an even better assassin for whatever it is he'll be doing to stop 2012 apocalypse from happening. I know, i couldnt stop laughing either when they talked about it in the game! @ Kigmal Co-op would be so awesome but i doubt it'll be possible. They might downgrade some stuff? I really wish there was a lot less hiding spots like whores and more soldiers in AC2. @ ^ Fans want to modernize it fast and change characters since they said a long time ago that Assassin's Creed was to be a trilogy. So it'd be great to have a different perspective other than Ezio after all that weird lady just told him he's purpose is done. Desmond (Nathan Drake) vs modern enemies... wait... is AC3 actually Uncharted 2 or Uncharted 3!!!???
@chaosatom lol sorry about that but I thought it was kinda expected given the beginning of AC2 and how they had a "oh we gotta hurry before we get caught" kinda theme goin. =)
Seriously? I would have thought it would be someone new :(
As long as it's set in a different country I don't mind. I quite liked Ezio, he had a lot of emotion and was a deep character. Altair was too much of a lifeless robot that had no substance. Really looking forward to Assassins creed 3. Uncharted 3 will probably come out around the same time too.
It's because they focused more on the engine and gameplay than the actual story in the first AC. Altair is the only one who was able to stand up against a Piece of Eden without anything unlike Ezio who got pwned with one while he himself had one. AC2 talked at length about Altair's past and the stuff he did and the stuff he learned using the Piece of Eden which is what made the hidden blades upgrades possible. I dont see anything wrong with using Altair as he was being portrayed as some sort of godly assassin in AC2. Though he does make a baby with a templar woman... that was confusing.
They should change the character. Move onto another time period like the jump between AC1 & 2.
i agree ... part of the AC series was to make us visit different périods ..keeping ezio is a shame ... i think it will be like bloodlines ...
I'm gonna wager a guess that this isn't "Assassin's Creed 3." The turnaround just seems way too quick, and the fact that Ezio returns as the main hero makes me feel that this game will be to AC2 what Bloodlines was to AC1, only fully-featured and on HD consoles.
Hmmm, interesting. As much as I liked Ezio and the setting of Assassin's Creed 2, I for sure would have thought that Ubisoft would move on to another character. That, or at least allocate the newly honed Desmond to a modern day assassination mission (completely outside of the Animus). Either way, here's hoping AC3 is as awesome as AC2 was!
I was dead set on the thought that AC3 was going to be present day, and I have to admit I'm disappointed to hear it's not. Unless I'm missing something? Why not just put Desmond in NY or CHI or LA and let him run wild in the streets? the possibilities seems limitless really. Edit: Ok, my bad...its not AC3, thank god. Gimme Desmond present day assassin style pah pah pah leeeeease!!
It will not be called Assassin's Creed 3 for a start. It will be like bloodlines and have a subtitle.
assins creeed 2 is ajoke , the game is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo o easy its not funny.
This isn't Assassin's Creed III guys!!!! You could probably call it Assassin's Creed 2.5 So don't expect heavily modified engine or improved graphics. But I'm still heavily anticipated for this since I'm an AC fan. There are hints in AC2, that Ezio used knowledge from the apple (piece of eden) to gain immortality...
should take place in England or Spain with a new character, I mean I'd like to see a progression of Desmond's assassin predecessors ... just my thoughts...
why would i want AC3, When they took out main parts of AC2 and are going to release as DLC . i want 100% complete game
awesome news. just finished playing the game roughly a week ago and loved every second of it.
me too, except for the last crypt i had to do, the one with the wall jumps ... omfg, i about threw my controller out the window.
Really? I thought that part was easy. In-fact, the only crypt that made me think was the one where you had 4 courses to run.
i was hoping for a new character in a later time period. this isn't a must buy for me but we'll see.
well I would of thought that they would make someone new and a new time zone like AC1 from AC2 but you never know this may still be an awesome game.
Like some people said before me this will not be Assassin Creed 3 but more like Assassin Creed 2.5 aka Assassin Creed: Bloodlines i think it was called i am looking forward to this tho i wanna see if its co-op edit... it looks like it could be set in japan.. http://www.vg247.com/2010/0...
it's not a brand new game, but more of an expansion like GTA4...geez get ya facts correct!!!!
Already? I thought they released an AC game after every 2 years. Anyhow, that would be great, I really loved Ezio. Looking forward to how the game will progress and follow up on AC2
didnt the game end? the whole point of desmond going in was to learn how to be an assasin and at the end he clearly knows how to in real life. why would he go back in, ass 3 should be set in the current time.
Pretty sure this game's going to be a spin off. It doesn't sound like it's gonna be AC3 at all :/
its not a spin off unless u call assassin Creed bloodlines a spin off aswell.Its just not Assassin Creed 3
mmk, I see. I've never tried Bloodlines myself, so I've always considered it a spin off. My bad.
Yeah present day would be amazing, if they did it right =D Thought AC2 was great, but now Ive got nothing left to do in the game. But I really didnt understand the ending, it was wierd.
I'm fine with this decision I just hope I get to keep my Master Assassin's armor. I also support this because playing as Desmond in the real world was very strange. *SPOILERS*************SPOILER S********* At the end where you play as Desmond it was kind of dumb I mean Abstergo is a multi-million dollar corporation and they're trying to reclaim one of their assets and yet all they sent were a bunch of dudes with nightsticks? laughable. ********Spoilers End***************** In all honesty, I don't know how they'd be able to pull of a present day AC. What are they going to do? Let you climb a skyscraper for 15 minutes then let you jump off into a coincidentally placed pile of hay lying in the middle of downtown? And what exactly happens should a street sweeper come by and clean up said hay? SPLAT! Would be quite funny actually.
I agree, my only problem with AC2 were the men with nightsticks. My guess is that they don't want to change AC2 into a shooter all of a sudden.
looool. he can always land on carnival baloons, similar to those of spiderman 1 :D Who knows maybe this time we can bounce onto other buildings? Anything is possible in the AC universe.. (seeing ac2's ending)
I agree that the ending was rather lamb. If you REALLY want to get the guy, how about guns? obviously they wanted to compare it to the "then" swords. But I was angered about that as well. This game seriously blew me away though, had rather low expectations (dunno why) and found that each area was absolutely filled with life and just felt REAL.
Ok so its not AC3, its AC Bloodlines 2 pretty much. except that you'll be playing it on the PS3/360 instead of the PSP. im cool with that.
all i want from the next assassins creed game is that they let me use desmond and to let desmond fined the other chambers like that lady said shoot ...or some new assassin to do soo something .. I loved AC 2 story line it got me in it soo much nothing lkke the 1st much better
Ubisoft has told the new project is Assassin's Creed Episodes with Ezio Auditore, but this is not Assassin's Creed 3 ! See: http://www.n4g.com/News-457... CVG, U R failed this time with this news.
isn't there any other era that they can explore, like ww2? also, their targeted release date makes it look like as though they were trying to rush the sequel out for profit, looking at the sales of ac2. this article does seem misleading though. i doubt it would be ac3. it might be a spin-off instead, judging from the target release date. might probably be the online ac game ubisoft just anounce, or another portable spin-off, continuing with ezio's story, like how ac bloodlines is to ac, which continued altair's story. off-topic now. i don't know if my prediction is right or wrong, but when i look at the word 'assassin', i'm thinking if the characters of the first 2 games are somewhat of an ass, maybe the character for the 3rd and final part of the ac trilogy might be a sinful one. could set a dark story.
supposedly their going to "dig around" in Desmond's memories and see what else they could get. but a modern day assassin's creed would be really cool. sort of like how splinter cell conviction has Sam out in the wild and not in random warehouses, but like in the streets and stuff. If they DID have Desmond follow a similar "wanted" route. It'd be pretty neat indeed.
Can we load our save files from AC2 and load it up on AC3? Cause that would be a waste. -End statement
I don't know about you guys, but this reeked of a bloodlines or other portable or as they put, "follow up' story as they did with the "follow up" story to Altair in Cyprus. I would almost guarantee that this is NOT AC3 but rather a filler game!! I repeat, NOT AC3! It just doesn't fit the profile!
Yes, Ezio is awesome
