Assassin's Creed: how will it all end?

Release Date: 05/08/2013

The Assassin's Creed saga has gone from curious newcomer to blockbuster regular in just five years, and Ubisoft plans to have a new instalment every year. But will the series ever end? Most definitely, says Ashraf Ismail, director of the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Even though there are multiple games in the series in development at any one time, there's a group of creators overseeing the whole process and making sure everything is moving towards the same end point.

"The brand team 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," Ismail told Eurogamer. "We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is."

That doesn't mean it's all written in stone, however, and the series does adapt and change depending on fan feedback. "Depending on the setting, depending on what fans want, we've given ourselves room to fit more in this arc," Ismail explained. "But there is an end."

The other benefit of having different games at different stages of production is that connections between them can be worked in very organically. "We're now able to seed stuff earlier and earlier in our games," Ismail revealed. "So for example in Assassin's Creed IV we have Edward, who was seeded in Assassin's Creed III. But there's a lot more stuff in our game that is hinting at other possibilities."

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is out on November 1st for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow later.
