We’ve been so enthralled by Assassin’s Creed III‘s American revolution setting that we’d forgotten all about Desmond, the present-day chap whose ancestry ties him to Altair, Ezio and newbie Connor.
But Ubisoft certainly hasn’t forgotten about him. In fact, Matt Turner, the game’s leader writer has confirmed that the Nolan North-voiced character will have a bigger presence than ever in this latest edition. “All I can say about Desmond’s story is you’re going to experience more Desmond than you’ve ever had before. We’re spending more time on the present than we have in past games,” he told CVG.
“It’s a big part of our story and I don’t really want to give too many details away because I want people to experience what that is. But rest assured, you’re going to see a lot of Desmond. More so than in any past game.”
You might recall that ACIII is meant to be the game to bring an end to Desmond’s story. Where the series goes from there is anyone’s guess.
