Upcoming Assasin’s Creed Revelations Creative Lead, Alexandre Amacio, confirmed that the new game will be available towards the end of next year.
“In Assassin’s Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012. That’s fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point,” he said. “We had such a complex and strong narrative that we ourselves did our best to just try to execute these games before that date. It would be stupid of us to be centering a game on a semi-reality and then have that conclusion happen after that date in real life.”
Ubisoft also mentioned before that Assassin’s Creed Revelations to be the “final chapter of the Ezio trilogy”. However, Amacio has now confirmed that Desmond’s story will continue for one more game.
“Assassin’s Creed is all about cycles – we have the Ezio cycle and the Altair cycle, and both of those are set to conclude in Revelations and we have the Desmond cycle, which is set to end on December 2012,” he said. “But there’s many cycles within the brand – that’s the whole point. History is our playground.”
“We’re already structuring the way we do Assassin’s Creed, so it will no longer ever be like that. Our development approach is changing so our cycles aren’t structured the same way – so it gives us a little bit more development time.”
Assassin’s Creed titles have been released annually and Amacio added that this schedule will likely slow down after next year’s release.
Mark your calenders for Assassin’s Creed Revelations’ release on Nov. 15. It will be available for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 with a PC version releasing in early December.
