So this has been revolving in my mind for a while now. In an interview with someone at Ubisoft they said "One of the main characters is Edward", notice anything weird about that sentence? Yeah, me too. Listening to the GameInformer video they said how they wanted to tell the Kenway history. Does anyone have this feeling that near the end of the game we might play as Haytham and see why he turned to a Templar? Obviously when replaying the game after finishing the story we would be Edward, but to say "one of the main characters" makes me think we just might see Haytham again.

Yeah, it's possible...but they can mean the new modern day guy, even if it is me and you xd....and they have many times said that the ship is like a second main charachter.

I think it's more than likely that we'll see Haytham for a bit, yes. But I also heard them describing the Jackdaw as the "second main character", so that might be what they were talking about.

Yeah I have also heard the ship being called a second character, but I think there is a bit more to this. It depends if they said "One of the main characters you PLAY AS", or "one of the main characters". If it was the first one, then you cant play as a ship if you catch my drift. The gameinformer videos (that I have a thread for), say that they saw the potential to go back a few decades, Haytham will be born!

Im just wondering if we will see his turning to a Templar because of the Jenny situation and Reginald, or if Haytham will get a spin off title to himself showing his conversion.

I hope not, IMO have two playable characters didn't make any good to the franchise, I prefer them focusing in one good story than have two average stories...

Yeah I wouldn't like to play as Haytham, not in AC4 not ever...but it would be cool IF he got a spin off, that it would begin exactly where AC4 ends, and then Haythams game ends exactly were AC3 begins, at the opera...so you can play the three games, the three generations...as one story.

I agree. having to play as two characters took away from each other. While playing as Haytham, i wanted to play as Connor and vice versa. IF WE DO play as two characters again, they both deserve customization and such

As much as I love Haytham I don't want to play as him now. His story is told.

This would make me extremely happy.

I'm not a fan of playing through two different stories but if it happens, I won't be complaining.

Well ac3 had more main charactehrs than jsut haytham and connor. Achilles for example was a main charactehr in my opinion.
