Nevertheless, when Ubisoft and the creators of the collection initially envisioned the collection, it was imagined to be a trilogy of stealth video games, not the unending action-RPG collection it’s right this moment. Not solely was the collection supposed to finish with the third recreation, however the third recreation’s ending was significantly totally different.
The brand new particulars come courtesy of impartial researcher Lars de Wildt, Eurogamer, and Murderer’s Creed 3 artistic director Alex Hutchinson, with the majority of the knowledge coming from essentially the most former supply through “Marketable faith: How recreation firm Ubisoft commodified faith for a world viewers,” which is comprised of a collection of interviews with the creators of the collection and first few video games.

“That is why she’s known as Lucy, after the Australopithecus afarensis,” stated collection creator Patrice Desilets whereas chatting with de Wildt. “As for the place Desmond and Lucy have been going, nicely… Boum! It is a freaking spaceship!” Désilets replied.
On the finish of the day, none of this occurred, and it was scrapped earlier than the event of the third recreation started as a result of at that time Ubisoft reportedly knew the collection would transcend three video games. And the additional the collection acquired away from the unique video games, the extra it left behind and by no means made good on the tales and characters of those video games, a lot to the frustration of many followers.
