Ubisoft say Assassin's Creed III 'will wrap up Desmond's story'

Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin's Creed III will be the last game in the series to feature Desmond Miles.

Speaking with the Official Xbox Magazine, Steve Masters, Assassin's Creed III's lead designer 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." 

Masters went on to add, "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."

Assassin's Creed III comes out October 31st on PS3 and Xbox 360. Have you preordered your copy yet? Do so today at ShopTo!

Very happy to hear this as the Desmond part of the story has never interested me much

I really kinda started to enjoy Desmond's story arc in ACII and in Brotherhood (I thought his segments in 'Revolutions' were tedious though) and I'm looking forward to seeing him don a hood of his own. After all - isn't that what it's all been leading up to??

Lovely stuff. I personally found the Desmond parts getting progressively worse.

will this mean the end of assassins creed... they could stick another one of the main characters through their past which i think would be pretty cool

I would expect some sort of spin offs using different characters, like Liberation on the Vita. They've spent years building up the franchise, they aren't likely to kill it now.

Exciting stuff, but with a universe like this the potential for a myriad of diverse stories across all of history is clear. I cant wait to see what the next generation brings for this franchise.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
