"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.

Kran2783d ago (Edited 2783d 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)

Xof2783d ago

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.

Moby-Royale2783d ago

I'm beginning to see a pattern with you.

*SPOILERS* You are a rude little kid.

Nate-Dog2782d ago

Orly? Because most trilogies don't have 5 games out before the end of the trilogy is released.

sriki0072782d ago

that's obvious, because of the whole 2012 thing..

Eamon2783d ago

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.

R_aVe_N2783d ago

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.

Hazmat132783d ago

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!

LAWSON722782d ago

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

MoB212783d ago

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.

user54670072783d ago (Edited 2783d 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 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 just wouldn't work. Hell even the Halo spin offs don't feel as epic because your not playing as the Master Chief.

MoB212782d ago

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

rpd1232782d 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.
