Despite there being no signs of the Assassin’s Creed franchise ending at any point in the near future, Ubisoft has confirmed that it does know how the story of Assassin’s Creed will finish when the time comes. Speaking in an interview with Eurogamer, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag game director Ashraf Ismail explained that a very rough outline of the final ending narrative is already in place, even though there are three separate Assassin’s Creed titles currently in development.
Ashraf Ismail explained that everyone is concerned with series’ arc and each game has its place:
“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.”
“We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is.”
Ismail also reaffirmed Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot’s statement that Assassin’s Creed is an annual title, and it is able to achieve this thanks to multiple development teams, but said that the overall plan does have room to change should it be necessary.
“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 explained.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, is coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
