In an interview with the Examiner, Ubisoft’s Creative Director of Assassin’s Creed Unity, Alex Amancio, says that Desmond will no longer take a part in the new game franchise.
Specifically, Amancio stated,
“It’s a new start, it’s a new narrative start. That is symbolized by a completely new context for the present day. You’ve seen a little bit of an evolution with Black Flag, [but] we’re not going to do the same thing. What we’re doing with Unity is really the beginning [of] this new cycle of Assassin’s Creed games.
“Because it’s new, we can actually explain it properly because nobody is going to feel like it’s redundant. I would say that Assassin’s Creed Unity is the best entry point for the franchise since, [Assassin’s Creed I],” Amancio said.
Assassin’s Creed Unity releases October 28 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. What do you think of not having Desmond in the game?
