Assassins Creed III To Be The End Of The Desmond Miles Story
The story surrounding Desmond Miles, the protagonist in the Assassin’s Creed series will be coming to an end with the last game, Ubisoft has confirmed. The publisher also wants to stop stalling and making people wait for answers.
Speaking with OXM, Assassin’s Creed 3′s lead designer Steve Masters said,
“What we’re trying to do is bring some finality to Desmond’s story. To actually wrap up what you’ve opened and experienced with him. So we’re trying to make it a little bit more direct with the storyline,” he continued, “but at the same time there are still going to be plenty of little mysterious bits for you to dig into, especially in the side stuff.”
Acknowledging fan frustration at the amount of plot stalling across Ezio’s trilogy, Masters added,
“We wanted there to be a big leap forward in the story, and we wanted you to feel a good sense of progress in what’s going on in the story.” He concluded, “A lot of the misdirection and the way we’ve been meandering a little bit has been kind of frustrating as a player and for the audience, so we wanted to make sure there was going to be more substance to get your teeth into.”
What do you think about the end of Desmond? Will Ubisoft have someone else carry the torch in another game down the road? Let us know below.
Assassin’s Creed 3 launches across Europe on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 from October 31st.
