Whether the great AC franchise is to end in 3, 10 or 30 more games, there's probably an ending planned or at least an idea or a concept in mind just like how they had a story for Desmond and they probably knew how to end it like they knew how to start it.

How do you think the AC franchise will end, story-wise? forget sales, forget demand, just express your thoughts on where the story will end up which will probably be related to modern day more than historical times since the sole reason for reviewing the past is to find clues on how to progress in the present.

Though I'm sure there will be sometime that somebody revives the franchise one way or another since there's demand, let's say how the franchise as we know it or how the current story as we know it will end before it gets rebooted, changed or whatever...

Vote and discuss!

Honestly, I don't even care. My interest in the modern-day story died a long time ago. I'm just in it for the historical aspect, I wouldn't even care if they axed the present-day completely.

Sure is seeming like that. They are even making the Assassins disappear from the story just to give you more access to an Animus that does everything. >_>

I agree with you, same here these days I only play AC for the historical side of the game. I'm not too bothered about the finale of the future side of the game.

I would like a mix of Mind Blowing and Happy...

For a setting? I think London should be the ending to end all settings for AC games.

What I think will happen: Ubisoft will put the franchise "on hold" like they did with POP...

I'll always care about Modern Day story. Although I do think they're trying to somehow turn it to a different shape or minimize it, but I think it's an essential part of the game. In fact, I can't wait to leave the Animus to see what will happen next from ACI to ACIII. I think we need to wait and see whether they're trying to completely end Modern Day gradually or just changing it's pace and style to fit the story in their minds.

I doubt ACIV will have any major additions to Modern Day, though... I think it'll be more about eavesdropping, reading files, solving puzzles but not much of a progress nor a real conclusion to a certain part of the plot.


Eve is William Miles

Juno is Cher. Mother of Lady Gaga.

Mind-blowing or happy. Obviously the former is the most difficult to create...

I like ambiguous endings.

My ending... hmm... every person in the future has an animus in their own home, either as a type of entertainment or as a means of communication with other people. The world is saved, Juno seems to be defeated... everyone is happy... Cut scene to an image of Earth from space: You discover the Animus network has formed a giant Apple. ;)

I also want a mixture of Mind-blowing and happy. In fact, I would've loved the fact that by the end of ACIII, we discover that all this was a memory reviewed by another Animus user in the future. I want a twist, something that will be totally unexpected yet positively affects the story. Something that isn't obvious at all nor something that feels forced on the plot. Just something that they might have hinted in the past but nobody paid attention to it or something that has some sort of grand event that we'll all be like "HEYYYYYYY SO THAT'S WHAT THIS WAS! OH SEEEE! I TOLD YOU THEY SAID THIS IN AC1 or AC:B".

But... The Apple isn't the only POE. But I see what you mean by mind-control.

I personally find that scenerio where it's the same but instead everyone has VR Headmounts. What do they call it? Rift.

Or the Templars win and the Assassins die. Revealing that we were evil all along.

I like the cutscene of a shot of the Earth showing the Animus Network looking like an Apple, idea. I think the member who said it meant it more of a symbolism to how we're all under control just like how the world actually is.

Anyway, I also like your idea of the Templars winning. I think most AC games showed that some Templars had a point and ACIII was almost in the middle and not taking any sides so maybe an ending that shows that the Assassins weren't the only heroes out there or maybe a truce between both or both ending once and for all or something like that.

Totally. The media, music, viral videos, gaming, films, news, cover-up stories, political problems, wars. I believe most of them are engineered and made up for a goal that people are yet to understand.

Do you honestly think the Templars would collaborate with the Assassins? I mean... you've seen how the Templars operate throughout history (minus Renaissance). These guys are no joke. And I bet Clay would be pissed if they did. xD

Also, how would it play out. Though it would be heartwarming if after the last battle against Juno, they all go their seperate ways and stay in the shadows and use only moderation as a weapon. And life goes on. Not Perfect Order or Perfect Chaos. Almost as if the AC series never happened. I thought AC3 was gonna end like that. Desmond and Cross being friends even in the end. Maybe it shows a person getting on a bus going to work to symbolize how stable society is.

Alternately, it can show in a crevice a young girl finding an item. That item is a POE. Hinting at a sequel (that will never come of course xD).

So, yeah. I'd like to see this... "evolution" of the ancient mind control. What better than good ol' Animus? It has taken a central role for so many games anyway and it's always been seen as a helpful tool to PREVENT mind control. But in the end... ;)

I thought something like a common enemy would make them work together, like Juno maybe or whoever is with her. Minerva said "They will enslave your kind" I doubt she meant The Templars because Juno could care less about what the Templars or the Assassins want. She waited for 75000 years to assume control so God knows what she's up to and now they say she's a "rogue A.I." according to the Twitter sessions. There's also Erudito and the Erudite God whom I'm almost 100% sure are related somehow. Maybe he and Juno are allies or maybe somebody else is. We only know of the Etruscan/Roman Gods portion of TWCB, what about other Gods from other civilizations and cultures? I'm sure there were more remarkable members than Tinea, Juno and Minerva whom we still don't know their intentions nor motives.

I like your idea. Even though some may laugh at the Desmond and Daniel being friends but I like it. It adds more fun to the story. I'm not against a happy ending and a walk towards the sunset LOL as long as the story feels finished and the ending is satisfying like MGS4 for example which had an almost 100% happy ending for most characters.

Maybe the end can show that both the Templars and the Assassins have ended their quests, realizing that "The world is a tapestry of different nations and cultures. A just leader would seek to celebrate it, not unravel it" which is what Suleiman said when asked about the Templar plot. Of course, it is a different situation here but the world is full of different people and belief systems that not one side can just dominate.

I think either faction 'winning' wouldn't stay true to the series. Maybe the Assassin's and Templar's do collaborate to stop Juno and when the threat is neutralized it's left ambiguous whether or not they resume fighting--the cycle of life goes on as it always has.

Or Erudito co-operate with the Assassin's and reduce the Templars's to a few scattered factions and the Assassin's start using their new found powers to stop Juno and when it ends they try to keep control of a messed up world and become the very thing they spent centuries trying to oust.

I don't see any discernable end in the near future as it seems that Ubisoft will continue milking the franchise until it runs dry. Especially considering they're saying that the modern day aspect is there to now provide context rather than actual plot progression.

Ideally, I'd like a bittersweet ending but more happy than not. There's enough depression and grit in the real world and it's nice to vicariously feel uplifted by a game.

Dream ending? The world's about to end (again), only way to stop it would be gathering all the pieces of eden in one place, yet some of them are owned by templars, and some by assassins. Some character would try convincing the leaders to unite and use the artifacts together instead of trying to steal the other's side ones. They're still fighting and the world's going to end very soon, suddenly all they realise all the artifacts are gone. The freemasons have taken them, saved the world and destroy both assassins and templars. Or they jst keep on fighting until the end of the world. I'd be satisfied only by a tragical ending or freemasons getting some better role than tunnel diggers.
EDIT-I forgot to mention one thing - Erudito has to be present version of freemasons.

Another idea for ending scene would be you (as the Abstergo employee) being stuck in a hacked Animus during assassin/Freerudito attack on the Abstergo headquarters. Preferably during some happy memory, like a feast to celebrate defeating the enemy. Some screams and shouts hearable from the "real life" people getting murdered by the enemies would be nice too.. After a whikle, they'd realise someone was in the Animus when they hacked it, so they shut it down. The screen would go all black and the credits would begin. In the next AC you'd play as the people who attacked the building. They'd take him with the animus to find out something more about the memories of character you were playing in this game.
Yeah, not to innovative or original, yet it would certainly be unexpected one.

I love the idea. But I’d be happier if they finally unite. I mean it may sound like a typical happy ending, but it would only happen after a lot of sacrifices and heroism from both sides. After all, the First Civ. members who enslaved humanity ended up working with humans to rebuild after Toba.

Voted for "A Happy Ending". Not because I do want the games to end like that, but because it is proven that the audience does not want a game story to end realistically. They want games to be fairy tales, like the ones mass produced by Hollywood. I have plenty of examples in my mind.
I totally ignored the unexpected thing, because, I believe the philosophy of the writing behind AC has an overall ending which will be cultivated and hinted throughout the games, no matter when this comes.

I’d personally go for the WTF ending because I miss it so much, I miss something like ACII and AC:B offered. But I wouldn’t mind a happy ending. If the story was written well and the ending was well directed and matched the story and was something visually, verbally, emotionally and musically stunning, then I don’t think it’s gonna be something reductive. It doesn’t have to be a depressing ending to be good. But I agree that there are a lot of Hollywood happy endings that could’ve been done better or could’ve better been replaced by a WTF moment. I love films with twists. I adore twists.

For some reason I always had the vision of Daniel Cross finding Desmond and co. whilst Ezio's Family played in the background. Daniel would kill each of the crew, one by one as the camera moved in slo-mo to show each death in gruesome detail. However, Desmond would live. And out of rage kill Cross. Then there'd be an evil, determined look in his eye - his face bloodied. Then the credits would roll.

For some reason I always had the vision of Daniel Cross finding Desmond and co. whilst Ezio's Family played in the background. Daniel would kill each of the crew, one by one as the camera moved in slo-mo to show each death in gruesome detail. However, Desmond would live. And out of rage kill Cross. Then there'd be an evil, determined look in his eye - his face bloodied. Then the credits would roll.

Yes, I know it's crap. I think it was a weird dream (nightmare?) that stuck in my mind for some reason.

Actually this looks ten fold better than the crap we got. I like the idea of Desmond being driven by revenge, like Ezio was and hinting that in the future his personality will change, drastically.

I love the idea. But Id be happier if they finally unite. I mean it may sound like a typical happy ending, but it would only happen after a lot of sacrifices and heroism from both sides. After all, the First Civ. members who enslaved humanity ended up working with humans to rebuild after Toba.

They could unite but I don't see it happening. It just doesn't seem to be Ubi's style. One thing is guaranteed though..... massive mind twist at the end.

I think I rather go for the "happy ending" in the sense where things end off on a high or positive note, not necessarily a "happy ever after ending". I'm not a huge fan of dismal and tragic endings, a lot of tv shows and novels go for those types of endings. Maybe a happy ending with a mind-blowing twist would do it for me.

WTF ending: there's an underwater section between us and TWCB #76, we decide to go through the water but then we remember that we are playing as a flying tablet but now is too late, the screen freezes, the HUD begin to slowly disappear as the water damages the tablet's components, the tablet screen cracks to add a little drama to the scene and the credits start rolling as the image begin to fade out... :p


if we ever get a proper ending, it'll probably end with a cliffhanger implying that the TWCB menace is gone but the Assassin vs Templar war will never end..

I completely agree with you. I mean back then when we mainly got happy endings with previous franchises of movies, games and books, we wanted something darker and more dramatic, but I feel like they’re being overdone nowadays that the general belief is that as long as it’s a happy ending, then it’s generic and cheap and as long as it’s a sad ending, then it’s “deep” and “powerful” an that’s wrong, because people can still have a meaningful story when they’re still alive and happy, having completed a certain quest.

AC is like the cops trying to stop drug dealers, it won't end. So technically this series can go one forever since the A v T war is never ending. So if there is a last game, it technically won't end the battle itself. We just won't get more story then.

If there ever was an ending, it would have to be some BS like the Assassins and Templars make peace, or the First Civ comes back with a Vengeance and takes back the world. Regarding the length, who knows? Is there ever an end? How many Shay's and Connor's are born from this conflict?

Well maybe the ending can literally end the battle between them not by making peace but by having to face one great danger that forces them to unite, leaving clues that the fight might someday pick up where it left off or perhaps dividing the world between them maybe? or better, their conflicts ends up destroying the whole world, pretty much like the First Civ. times. They were too busy fighting humans than focusing on whats really at stake and the world ended.

Erudito is just nutjobs and Iniitiates has Assassin support, it's an easy battle. When thinking about it, isn't Erudito an innocent group that started a campaign against Abstergo? So the Assassins can't kill them even at war. Unless they break their own creed.

Are Erudito actually Assassins just because they fight against Abstergo ( Templars)? No...just another group born from the war.

And I think it's BS that Initiates are siding with the Assassins. Aren't they supposed to be neutral? Maybe Erudito is against that?

I don't think they might do that, Galina's memories are exclusively for Initiates (I could be wrong, though). I think only after playing Unity, we might get to understand what the Helix is all about and how it works... maybe then we will know what the MD might be like.

if the current MD state is a direct result of people's indifference to it (what IMO is the case because I don't buy that excuse that they don't have time to write a proper story when they have enough people to release two games at the same year) then IMO they should completely remove it instead of pretend they're doing a favor to those who enjoy it because IMO they aren't.

True but it doesn't change the fact that their innocent, just because they know of the war and a group born from the war doesn't change it.


And I think it's BS that Initiates are siding with the Assassins. Aren't they supposed to be neutral? Maybe Erudito is against that?

Based on the fact that Shaun gave Initiates a message about them finding out about what they do and asked them to Unite, I'd say it's far from BS. Gavin's team has two Initiates members that they managed to find after that they gave the message. What would the Assassins do with the two if Initiates says no, kill them for knowing to much or trow them out of the war?


One believes in watching through inaction.
The other believes in watching but acting.

One is a group of nutjobs that even the Assassins keep track of(confirmed during William's interrogation with one of Gavin's crew), so their pretty much innocent.
One group was hidden so well that the Assassins didn't find out about them until last year, so they asked them to unite.


That sounds like something to start a war. Probably not like the Assassins and Templars, but still a war nonetheless.

True it would be a war nonetheless but agains innocent amature(compared to Initiates) group of nutjobs that like the Assassins are fighting Abstergo but without Assassin support(unlike Initiates). Not to mention that Initiates is natural regarding the Assassin/Templar war, so having them hindering Erudito from reviling dirty Templars within Abstergo would go against their goal.

the main problem with AC3's missions IMO was exactly that, they gave us too much freedom, it tried to replicate the experience we have with the historical times and IMHO it shouldn't do that because it simply won't work, the core pillars weren't build with a modern setting in mind, I wouldn't mind some heavily scripted sequences during the modern days if that is what it takes to have a better narrative and atmospheric experience.

What you're saying would hold true if it wasn't for the annual releases. I personally didn't think it give me to much freedom, if anything, it made myself/ Desmond feel more involved with the overall plot than said character telling Desmond to go to point A to Point B or back to the Animus.

And I regarding the ending, I'm about 50/50 about it.

I always thought Desmond was being looked at while he was looking through his ancestors...something like Inception. And I really got that theory after Des fell from touching the Orb as a static screen starting appearing as if someone was watching him from a First person view.

Ah, yes...They could show a family watching Tv to a group of buddies watching a sports game and see Juno come out of nowhere and tell them stuff they don't understand. Then finally saying that they

Erudito is just nutjobs and Iniitiates has Assassin support, it's an easy battle. When thinking about it, isn't Erudito an innocent group that started a campaign against Abstergo? So the Assassins can't kill them even at war. Unless they break their own creed.

Erudito got captured and absorbed by Abstergo, if memory serves...

AC as to end with a big catarsis and revelation about the universe, not a conclusion,video games are moved by misteries and the discover of it, is not such thing than a series ending with marriage and childrem like a soap opera(harry potter fans knows that).

is because of this that AC 2 ending is the better, the final reward of exploring the renaissence is the discover of TWCB.existence...

There will be many endings to the series, the end of AC3 is proof of that, that was a twist, we are now at a new beginning and this might finish in 3 more games, I highly doubt this franchise will finish... it will just carry on and there will be many different endings along the way! So for this era's ending i choose a devastating ending since we have already had many twists!

At the end of this particular arc, I want to die.

So that I may never have to play as myself ever again.

It'd be cool if we died at the end of every sequel. I'd love to see them pull a MW moment on us.

They should end it by creating a spin-off.

Desmond comes back as a cyborg and kills half of Amsterdam before tearing Juno's head off, he then flies away to Africa and Desmond's Creed begins.

I would like a mix of Mind Blowing and Happy...

For a setting? I think London should be the ending to end all settings for AC games.

What I think will happen: Ubisoft will put the franchise "on hold" like they did with POP...

If a new big franchise pops up then there's a good chance that will happen. But the thing about POP was that it didn't have an overall story. Instead, each game had its own separate story (as far as I know). So sure, halting the development of new POP games didn't make POP fans happy, but it didn't affect the story because there wasn't really a story that connected all the games.

With AC on the other hand, even though the Modern day story (which is the only real story part of the game IMO) has been neglected, halting the production of AC titles will halt the story. It will leave people who are into the story hanging, waiting, for who knows how long, for a new installment .

So in relation to the story of the game, POP players were probably not affected by the discontinuation of POP games as much as AC fans would be by the discontinuation of AC games.

I am an ardent fan of Sands of Time (The best game I've ever played) and of the AC series. And if it wasn't already apparent, what appeals to me about AC is the modern day story and its connection to the historical parts.

- so IMO, if they do away with the modern day story, then alot of people will just stop playing AC, myself included. This will happen because some people play the game to find out what happens in the modern day.

LIke I remember when I played ac1, I was put into this myserious world where I was this guy put in some machine called the "animus". I had no idea why I was in the machine, and even though the game's characters told me why, I didn't know if I could trust them. So I played the game to find answers to those questions. This continued with AC2 and ACB. It started to get weaker around revelations and was nonexistent afterwards. This is what drove me to play the game. Without it, playinng the game would just consist of playing as some character killing people in various historical settings. It would be meaningless.

Welcome to the forums!

--------------------

I can't possibly understand how the redundant drama of the modern day outweighs the merits and stories of the ancestors for some people. It was never good material, IMO. It have always been a journey that never full-filled peoples' hopes and dreams.

It's like what Desmond in his messages to his Dad...

MD is like a book, it's up to us to keep turning the pages.

Right now, we're at the low-point of the book with no excitement/ Anticipation put into it.
