Ubisoft has said Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will bring back the modern-day game play and promised fans it will “make sense” of the ongoing war between the Templars and Assassins.
In an interview with Gamespot, Creative director of AC: Syndicate, Marc-Alexis Cote was asked whether the series narrative which was talked up as having a pre-determined path, was still going somewhere, following Desmond’s departure.
“The Assassins Creed story is still going somewhere” Marc replied:
“The overarching story is divided into cycles, So we had what we called the Desmond cycle, which ended with AC3, Black Flag was the transition point between the Desmond cycle and the new cycle”.
According to Cote, The games following AC3, namely Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Unity, were a transitional period leading into the new narrative, Which Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will pick up.
In Assassin’s Creed 3, we saw Desmond’s untimely death which left fans of the franchise wondering where the story would go. Cote went onto say:
“Assassins Creed Syndicate will once again give weight to the conflict between the series two warring factions and the meaning to the struggle for control over modern society.”
Myself being a massive fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, I was disappointed to see Desmond being removed from the games with that the modern story left along with Desmond, but now that Ubisoft is bringing the modern-day story back is a big thumbs up in my books.
