Assassin's Creed: Revelations announced

New Assassin's Creed game finally announced.

My first thought is 'More bloody Ezio?'. My second is 'Seriously, enough with Ezio already! The series is supposed to be about multiple assassins from Desmond's lineage, not the same one over and over again!'. My third thought is 'Multiplayer again? Screw that.'

  • It's trying too hard to be Inception. (Possibly someone else using the animus to access) Desmond using the animus to access Ezio who is using magic to access Altair.
  • I'm a big enough fan of the series that I'll definitely give it a shot but after this, I'm ready for a new timeline (hell, I was ready after ACII). I like the Renaissance as much as the next guy but there's so much potential in exploring a new timeline. I want to be an assassin in Victorian London or Berlin in the late 1930s. I also think Paris, Boston or Moscow during their respective revolutions would make fantastic settings.
  • I think an Assassin's Creed during the American Revolution would be fantastic.

    I doubt Ezio is using magic so much as using artifacts of the ancient civilization that created the Apple of Eden. And for all we know, Abstergo may have those same artifacts in the present day, and were able to reverse engineer that technology to create the Animus in the first place.

    I agree with above posters that I'm kind of tired of this era, but at least it's not in Italy again this time. It should feel different enough, especially if the Altair and Desmond sections are numerous enough.
  • Also: Wouldn't it make the most sense for AC3 to be set entirely in 2012?

    It might, but the historical settings is one of the coolest parts of Assassin's Creed. There are a billion games wherein I can kill dudes in the present. Being able to kill dudes during the Crusades and the Renaissance was a new experience.
  • Exactly. It would make sense story-wise but it would lose a lot of the appeal of the premise. I'm sure Desmond will have an even bigger role in AC3, but I hope that there's also a new assassin and a new time line that takes up at least 50% of the game.
  • I just wonder if Ubisoft still plans to end the series with AC3 like they supposedly planned to do when AC2 first released. It seems likely that, given how much the series is deservedly turning into a cash-cow, we should expect it to continue a lot further past 2012.

    Well, 2012 launch and 2012 syncing date for AC3 is too good to pass up. We may just get Spin-offs and prequels, which I would not mind at all.

    I would expect a game to be released around November/December 2012, be it AC3 or AC:Whatever just because I feel it'd be a cool way to tie into the present of the AC universe. After that, prequels would be a good way to go about it, or make a new character from the present and spin-off from there. Hell, they could work out a new threat that they have to combat, 'cos presumably the Templars will be pissed off if (really more like when) their plans are foiled and so they'd have to come up with something new to try.

    So best bet is AC3 for late next year (would imagine Ubisoft already have a team working on it now) then after that who knows but hopefully more games!
