Ubisoft Knows How Assassin’s Creed Ends

Ubisoft has a clear idea of how to conclude the Assassin’s Creed franchise, as the ending of the story has already been written. Although the company has no plans to end the series anytime soon, it won’t have any problem coming up with a way to do so should it decide to draw the shutters on the long-running story.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag Game Director Ashraf Ismail said that a rough outline of the ending narrative exists.

“The brand team that sits on top and is filled with writers and designers concerned with the series’ overall arc. So there is an overall arc, and each iteration has its place inside this,” he said. We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is,” said Ismail.

“Depending on the setting, depending on what fans want, we’ve given ourselves room to fit more in this arc. But there is an end,” he said.

Due to the fact that Ubisoft has multiple Assassin’s Creed titles in the works on a staggered release schedule, it’s possible for the teams to work back and forth and ask each other to drop hints and foreshadow future games before their release.

“We’re now able to seed stuff earlier and earlier in our games. So for example in Assassin’s Creed 4 we have Edward, who was seeded in Assassin’s Creed 3. But there’s a lot more stuff in our game that is hinting at other possibilities,” Ismail said.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is slated for an October release on the PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, to be followed by release on next-gen platforms.

Until it gets leaked, then it will be changed. Then when people don’t like the new, rushed ending they’ll be called ‘entitled.’
