Assassin’s Creed Revelations “won’t answer everything”
Franchise to retain its wrapped mysteries.
Ubisoft game’s writer Darby McDevitt has teased that Assassin’s Creed’s next entry, Revelations, won’t answer all of the mysteries wrapped across the series, though it’ll still offer conclusions to the most “important” aspects of Ezio and Altair’s role in the saga.
The lead writer was keen to disclose that Desmond’s tale is bound to continue following the upcoming events in Revelations, and as a result, the franchise still needs to leave something to the imagination.
“Well, we wont answer everything because Desmond’s story continues. But fans will definitely know most of the important details of Ezio and Altair’s lives, and how they fit into the grand scheme,” he said.
Of course, the main question that dazzles our minds is whether Ubisoft plans to kill off aging master assassin Ezio in the Italian’s-set closing chapter, though the Canadian publisher is holding off words to the man’s fate close to its chest.
“52 is a good age,” said McDevitt, “but one must remember that Ezio and Altair are rather special people. Also, although 52 was old in the 1500s, it wasn’t uncommon for people to live for quite a long time.”
“Suleimon the Magnificent lived to around 70, and one Janissary [Sultan's bodyguard] that we found lived to be 104.”
McDevitt went on to offer further details, teasing that “hardcore fans know the logic of the Animus prevents us from seeing certain things in a character’s life – but we also know how to pull a few devious tricks. Just wait and see.”
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is due out this November for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
