Where is Assassin's Creed going? In 2030 will we be playing it in space? Are Ubisoft ever going to wrap up this series and all that it initially set out to accomplish? We're seeing that Assassin's Creed has been progressing further in time since the beginning. With Assassin's Creed Syndicate, we find ourselves in the mid-19th Century, in Victorian London. But where to next?
The Assassin's Creed games have long since abandoned the intriguing futuristic elements of the first few games. It was all building towards something interesting. But then Ubisoft realised the series had far too much potential to wrap it all up with the death of Desmond Miles - they have so many cities and centuries to explore! But should Assassin's Creed make its way towards the modern setting it began with after Assassin's Creed Syndicate?
Should AC Move Towards Desmond Miles' Time After Assassin's Creed Syndicate?
The question is, do you want Assassin's Creed to end? Should Ubisoft start wrapping things up soon, or are you happy for this series to perpetuate throughout our existence? They'll eventually have to stop developing it, but that time doesn't seem to be at hand. At least this series has given Ubisoft the funds to create such amazing indie games as Child of Light, Grow Home and Valiant Hearts.
But Assassin's Creed needs a bit more direction. The final game they make in this series will have to address its humble beginnings, where Desmond Miles was strapped to the Animus. But I suppose Ubisoft need to find a replacement. Watch Dogs is getting a sequel for sure, but whether that IP has the ability to achieve the same level of success as Assassin's Creed remains to be seen.
What Do You Want From Assassin's Creed?
Seeing as we're approaching the 20th Century with these games, I can see Assassin's Creed moving to the Wild West or the Tokugawa shogunate era in Japan. But seeing as I don't play them anymore, it's not really my place to say that they should wrap them up. These are still very popular games for Ubisoft, and I'm sure they have a plan for a lot of cities in the future. But what do you want from Assassin's Creed?
Do you want it to start moving closer to the times of Desmond Miles? Would you like to see them attempt to join its beginning with the series once more? Could we even see it combine with Watch Dogs? I'll return to Assassin's Creed if they move to Japan or the future - OR BOTH IN ONE! But I'd like to see this series have a bit more direction and connection with its beginnings.
