Living up to its name, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations sets out to tie up some loose end in the upcoming sequel to the long running franchise. The game which has now spanned over multiple generations, has left many a gamer scratching their head at the end of each. Opening up new plot-lines with every game but never quite giving gamers closure or explanation of the big picture in the Assassin’s Creed universe.
When Revelations releases this fall, that’s all supposed to change. Choosing the title Revelations had a deeper meaning for the development team at Ubisoft, according to a recent interview with Game Informer magazine. There’s plenty to be “revealed” and explained in the fourth title for the franchise. Alexandre Amanico, of Ubisoft, spoke with Game Informer recently and told the magazine that the game will “actually give the players a lot of the answers that they’ve been thirsting for”.
“A lot of things were set up with Minerva, with Juno, a lot of the details about the end-of-the-world plot line in 2012,” he says. “As we’re getting closer and closer to the actual 2012 marker, the franchise is also concluding its major opus. So this game is sort of where we’re setting all the record straight. We’re sort of closing all of the loops that have been started.”, the developer noted.
Amanico also dropped a huge hint on the future of the franchise as well. Being that Revelations will close the door on the early chapters of the franchise, and Ezio’s story, both Altair and Ezio will be featured in Revelations to prepare us for Assassin’s Creed III. In the interview it was said that each numbered Assassin’s title will introduce a brand new assassin. So expect that when Assassin’s Creed: Revelations launches this fall, all of the loose ends will be tied up nice and neat before moving on to Assassin’s Creed III which more than likely will launch in 2012 if the past is any indication of Ubisofts timeline on the AC projects.
