Assassin's Creed 3 has 'a lot more Desmond' than past titles, but is it the end for him?

GameZone's Matt Liebl writes, "Assassin's Creed 3 is all about changing things up. We have a new setting, new time period, and new assassins protagonist with Connor. But one noticeable missing piece that's quite pivotal to the story of Assassin's Creed is Desmond. We really haven't heard much about him until now."

We know it is the end of his story after this game. Ubi or a developer (can't remember who) has come out and said this. How they end his story is a mystery (i.e. kill him off....).

The problem is Desmond has never really been the main character which is why he is a terrible character and why many do not like him. The thing is if Ubisoft were to carry the franchise I think they would need to go back to the drawing board in how the approach going into the past. At the moment all the story is in the past with this loose over arching story connecting everything together. I think it is going to be hard to have two big characters with their own story in one game without getting bogged down in constantly changing time zones

I think Desmond is sweet. His part of story pretty much makes you wonder how bad the outside world really is and gives the game the futurestic feel that makes the animus possible. If they give us another main focus id like a female lead.

It's too obvious from what they said to get rid of him.

They will complete the Chapter of Desmond that has linked everything so far.

They will re-introduce him in the next 2 in a different way/ different approach to it than with the past games.

But I doubt they will kill him off, and if they do I have a feeling he gets stuck inside the Animus so we can play as him in the future. So he doesn't really die.
