Assassin’s Creed: Unity marks the beginning of a new narrative arc for Ubisoft’s franchise. Bye bye Desmond.


Speaking with Examiner, creative director Alex Amancio said of Unity’s plot, “It’s a new start, it’s a new narrative start. That is symbolized by a completely new context for the present day

“You’ve seen a little bit of an evolution with Black Flag, [but] we’re not going to do the same thing. What we’re doing with Unity is really the beginning [of] this new cycle of Assassin’s Creed games

“Because it’s new, we can actually explain it properly because nobody is going to feel like it’s redundant. I would say that Assassin’s Creed Unity is the best entry point for the franchise since [the first Assassin’s Creed].”

Unity really does sound like a fresh start, as far as Amancio’s explanation is concerned. What are you expecting from the game’s modern day plot arc?
