Ubisoft Has Already Planned the Ending for Assassin’s Creed Franchise

The studio behind Assassin’s Creed – Ubisoft has said that they have planned out everything related to Assassin’s Creed ending (whenever that may happen).

Speaking to Eurogamer, Assassin’s Creed 4’s game director, Ashraf Ismail said that the owners of the popular installment have a crude idea about franchise’s ending.

According to Ismail, the studio already have the idea of an ending and know when to execute it exactly but based on fan’s demands – they are adjusting to it.

We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is. But of course Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft's overall boss] announced we are a yearly title, we ship one game a year. So 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 further added that their games already hint at the future possibilities. For example, Edward, the main protagonist of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag was seeded in Assassin’s Creed 3.

We’re now able to seed stuff earlier and earlier in our games. So for example in [AC4] we have Edward, who was seeded in AC3. But there’s a lot more stuff in our game that is hinting at other possibilities.

Ubisoft roughly gets two years for an Assassin’s Creed game. Still, there are some features that have to pushed away for the next installment. For instance, ship boarding in Assassin’s Creed 3 which is finally emerging as a real-time event in Assassin’s Creed 4.

The biggest cut we made – which we were pushing hard for but we felt we couldn’t achieve at a high enough quality – was multiplayer with naval [battles]. We had really cool prototypes but to get it to work and to balance the systems – the balance of naval is tricky – to do that in multiplayer… we just couldn’t do it in this iteration.

With a little information on the next installment of Assassin’s Creed in 2014 or somewhere near it – when do you reckon the franchise will come to an end? Let us know!

      So you’re saying the Hashshashins weren’t real assassins o.0

    • coorow

      Or maybe the other way around, fighting the US would be far more satisfying or even fighting both sides because we all know the Templars basically control everyone after ww2

    • mattis kenway

      what about assassins creed vikings or egypt

    • John Hawes

      The next one is in china. The one after i think will be a civil war based one. then the last will be a modern day where juno has finally taken over someone’s body.

      men this saga originally was an idea of a trilogy… they’ve got a trilogy (not counting ACB and ACR) now its time for and end, BUT as a fan of the saga it woulb be great to calm down, take their time (a couple of years), and release a new, fresh saga

    • Keyser Soze

      Well they sure as hell never planned out the ending for Assassin’s Creed III. Jesus Christ that was some anticlimactic bullshit

    • unanimous

      How about a 100 percent modern assassins creed that does but include the animus

    • Q. Qniform Q.

      AC3 was worse than AC1 was (and it was bad), because nobody had any expectations. AC3 was BORING.

    • derpdedurr

      I’m looking forward to Assassin’s Creed 20.

    • Manuel Granados

      They are still missing Assassin’s Creed in space, Assassin’s Creed underwater, Assassin’s Creed feudal japan with ninjas, Assassin’s creed world war 2, assassin’s creed cold war, assassin’s creed gulf war. So they probably can keep on milking it for another 20 years.

        Don’t forget assassins creed modern warfare and its sequels.

        • guest

          Assassins Creed Black Ops 28

      • guest

        On a serious note I would love to see assassins creed cold war.

        • mattis kenway

          why nobody died or anything they just made a bunch of nukes but then didn’t shoot them

      • Johnny K

        I really would like to see an Assassin’s Creed setting in the japanese Sengoku era

    • Mr. J

      i just hope ubisoft does not follow capcom’s road, i mean, look at resident evil, every new RE game is more stupid than the last one. Don’t get me wrong, i love assassins creed games but honestly, it should have ended in AC3, and that yearly release dates thing makes it look like the AC franchise will be ubisoft’s call of duty.

      • Sparkus K. Thunderbolt

        You can’t be more right, i like this saga but it would be sad to see it dying with every new title being repetitive over and over

      • Ta’i Ngatokorua

        This is just my own opinion and I don’t actually hate the series…but ever since they announced a yearly installment, I’ve started to look at the franchise differently..I loved the 1st and 2nd..but I’m starting to grow tired of it. The others were good games, but I don’t want to see this go down the same road as COD. The new one does look like they’ve put more effort into it though!

      • Ricky

        Same here. I can deal as long as they find a way to make it interesting. I LOVED Assassin’s Creed III itself, but the ending sucked silver-back gorilla balls
