Assassin’s Creed 3 and Desmond’s departure?

Looks like Assassin’s Creed 3 will not only allow players to experience a new beginning for America, but will also mark the end of a journey.  In  a recent interview with OXM, Assassin’s Creed 3 Lead Designer Steve Masters spoke on what the studio has planed for everyone’s favorite descendant.

“What we’re trying to do is bring some finality to Desmond’s story,” Masters told OXM in an interview. “To actually wrap up what you’ve opened and experienced with him. So we’re trying to make it a little bit more direct with the storyline, but at the same time there are still going to be plenty of little mysterious bits for you to dig into, especially in the side stuff.”

“We wanted there to be a big leap forward in the story,” Masters went on, “And we wanted you to feel a good sense of progress in what’s going on in the story. A lot of the misdirection and the way we’ve been meandering a little bit has been kind of frustrating as a player and for the audience, so we wanted to make sure there was going to be more substance to get your teeth into.”
