Assassin's Creed 3's ending 'should not come out of no where'
By now everyone knows that Assassin's Creed 3 will more than likely conclude Desmond's story, but with that comes the uncertainty with how it will end. As we saw with Mass Effect 3, the conclusion of a story arc that has spanned several games is never an easy task.
Speaking to Shacknews, lead writer Corey May said Assassin's Creed 3 will have some plot twists and turns, but that the ending won't come out of left field to shock fans of the series.
"The ending should not come out of no where," May said. "You will not wake up and find that you were in an Animus reliving the life of someone who was in an Animus. We are not doing that. It was not all just a dream."
It's good to know Assassin's Creed 3 won't go the same route of Dallas.
"I think people that have invested in the Desmond storyline will understand where the end of the game comes from," May added. "We're tying up loose ends and providing answers and resolution to things. You're not going to get another tremendous insane-o cliffhanger."
With that being said, Assassin's Creed 3 still plans "plenty of seeds" that could be used for story hooks in future AC games. May claimed he didn't know if another game was in the pipeline, but several higher-ups at Ubisoft have already backed the idea of "annualizing" the Assassin's Creed franchise.
"Should they decide in the future to do other stuff, there's plenty of room to explore, plenty of seeds that have been planted that won't conflict," May concluded. "It was my intent to provide pay-off and to answer questions for those who are invested in them. It should provide a fairly lengthy ending that will also give room for answers and pay-off."
With Assassin's Creed 3 releasing next month, the wait for the ending isn't much longer.
