Alexandre Amacio, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’ creative boss, says that Desmond Miles’ story will be wrapped up with the next Assassin’s Creed installment, and that Ubisoft plans on doing it before December 2012.
“In Assassin’s Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012,” Amacio told Eurogamer. “That’s fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point.
“We had such a complex and strong narrative that we ourselves did our best to just try to execute these games before that date. It would be stupid of us to be centring a game on a semi-reality and then have that conclusion happen after that date in real life.”
Amacio also said that after Desmond’s story is done and dusted, if the Assassin’s Creed franchise ever returns, it will follow another central character and won’t be released on a yearly basis.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will release in November for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The PC version, though, will be releasing in December.
