Sometimes it is hard to tell if a franchise is just being milked for all it’s worth or if they actually have a story arc and ending. Well, Assassin’s Creed does have a story arc and an ending planned.
Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag game director Ashraf Ismail said that there is a rough outline of the ending which has been written already. He says, “The brand team that sits on top and is filled with writers and designers concerned with the series’ overall arc. So there is an overall arc, and each iteration has its place inside this. We have an idea of where the end is, what the end is.”
That’s reassuring, but the question is, how long will it take them to get there? We know that there will be three more titles in the franchise to come, but will they expand on that until we are all sick of it? We will see.
