As the final entry in the Ezio trilogy, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will answer a lot of questions – and leave some for Assassin’s Creed III.
“We actually found, I forget where it is on the web, somebody did a ‘Top Ten Things Fans Want to Know About Assassin’s Creed,'” creative director Alex Amancio told Destructoid at PAX.
“And in that top ten list, we actually answer seven.”
Among the questions which will be answered is the knotty problem of how modern-day assassin Desmond, Assassin’s Creed II protagonist Ezio and Assassin’s Creed’s Altaïr are related.
“People are going to go ‘Oh, okay, I get it!’ or ‘I never thought they were going to show me that!’ and it really sets you up for what’s to come,” Amancio said.
“Keep in mind we’re following the typical trilogy structure. So of course, everything can’t be answered.
“But at the same time, we want to avoid what I like to fall the X-Files effect, where you risk crumbling under the weight of your own mythology, so a lot of doors have been left open.”
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November, with a PC release to follow.
