Desmond's story in Assassin's Creed is to end this year. Nick Cowen wonders if Ubi ever knew what to do with him in the first place.
The highly anticipated Assassin's Creed III, which promises to introduce a new protagonist to the series, will be released October 30, 2012, Ubisoft said today during its Q3 earnings call.
To bring you up to speed before the next game, Assassin's Creed Revelations, we've put together this handy catch-up.
Ubisoft hasn't ruled out the possibility of creating a female protagonist for a future Assassin's Creed title, with Revelations senior level designer Falco Poiker stating he believes fans would accept such a move.
Ubisoft has revealed that it plans to conclude Desmond's storyline by December 2012. The current series has an end of the world plot that is set to conclude next year and the publisher wants the series' plot tied up before we reach that date.
