Most important info from the interview:

Abstergo is searching for something that can allow anyone to "jump" into the past.


Well, this takes speculation to whole new levels.


My bad. It was a very horrible misinterpretation on my side. Back to believing whatever we want. Nothing confirmed about time-travelling.

In before they go to the past to save Desmond and actually succeed.

They CAN go (or rather William will) to the past and save Desmond and unleash the wrath of rooster's rotten swordfish


OR they can go to the past and find a way to save the world without unleashing Juno.


OR use the device to wipe the assassins from existence, which would be the most generic evil goal ever.

That cheeky bastard didn't mean it literally, did he?

How about this. Juno tries to find this POE to go back and time and prevent the first solar flare, therefore, returning the First Civ to life and returning their reign. Yaaaaaay we become slaves to the first civ again.

I wonder if said POE is that cube thing Edward was holding in one of the trailers.

Time travel PoE?

What if Connor appears in Black Flag as an NPC? He could go back to Edward's time or Edward could go forward to Connor's time.

Although a time travel PoE.. something tells me that not many First Civ people even know about it.

Nooo!
They've already shown messing around with the concept of time can lead to inconsistencies.
This can also mean that they can end be Juno plot conveniently by simply going to the past and stopping her release, not a very interesting end to the arc (although it's just speculation).

They did. They also intentionally destroyed it cause it would cause way too much disturbances in the balance of space and time.


With Juno in the picture, maybe desperate times call for desperate measures?

It all makes sense now. He KNEW he was gonna die. At some point, he goes forward in time to Connor (I hope my scene with Edward patting Connor on the back happens), to help him find whatever they want to find and Oh God this time travelling is going to add a crap ton of confusion to an already "complex" modern day plot.

Why? It would be awesome if we have a scene where Edward meets Connor and gives him some directions/wisdom. I don't even care if it's to Connor. I wouldn't mind if it's directed at any other Kenway (like Connor's son).

I think an Ezio-Desmond Revelations thing could also happen, where Edward manages to communicate with Connor through time with a Piece of Eden, but can't actually go forward in time to meet him.

The series continues to become more and more science fiction, which it has always been and there's nothing wrong with that; however, it makes the whole "grounded in reality" part of the series feel completely lost.

Jexx21

I don't see that?

However... I'm not sure if they're even going to use the Time Travel PoE..

I think a lot of us have known this, but now they're using it as a central plot device. Didn't Abstergo already find one but lock it away cause they didn't want mess around with the fabrics of time? (Or was that the first civ?)

Yeah it was Abstergo and the thing actually worked. It sent a ship 18 minutes into a future state, but they locked it away...hmm...begs the question....why are they looking for another if they already have one??

Spider_Sith9

I agree. It pretty much shows they cater to these type of protagonists. Altair and Connor being "bland" being used while Ezio and (possibly) Edward taken the forefront.

Like it didn't jump the shark with the TWCB already? Originally realistic abilties was restricted to Aura Vision and Parkour. Now it's...this. Pretty soon Rock and 6th/7th Assassin will shoot a blast of energy at the Templars and blow up their facilities.

Me neither.What has tie travel to do with Ubisoft caring o not caring fo any type(?) of protagonists? I'm tying to run my brains but..

Either way, even if they introduce time travel I'm pretty sure the historical part would be largely remain unaffected with it. It'll be more related to the modern day mumbo jumbo.

Because New York seemed really deserted and Africa sounded really dead in AC3

They destroyed the piece, they couldn't afford to have it exist. Maybw we should check on the wiki.


Confirmed. It was locked away not destroyed.

ze_topazio
08-12-2013, 07:04 PM
Never really liked the idea of the modern world being in a half dead state anyway, that was most likely what they were going to use for the modern plot before coming up with the solar flare instead.

Rakudaton
08-12-2013, 07:05 PM
Don't know if someone has suggested this, but a time-travel PoE might be the cause behind the Bermuda Triangle -- all those ships etc that go missing are going back in time or something due to the PoE's power? Who knows.

Well we know it figures, so...

Just had a thought. I don't normally make these kinda suggestions, but what if the game ends with the protagonist turning round to find Edward behind them?!

Jexx21
08-12-2013, 07:08 PM
The ship wasn't sent forward in time by 18 minutes, but rather disappeared into the future and returned 18 minutes later.

ACfan443
08-12-2013, 07:14 PM
Maybe one takes you forward, another back?

But wasn't the purpose of locking it away to prevent them from changing the past? Changing the past would, I assume, have far more of a destructive effect on the present

Jexx21
08-12-2013, 07:15 PM
Philadelphia Project - Data provided from Animus Subject Twelve indicates that the ship briefly manifested in a future state for approximately 18 minutes. It is unclear whether the timeline is consistent with or parallel to our own. Although we have recovered enough data to reconstruct and repair the original artifact used in the experiment, Administration has refused to move forward on the project, citing paradox concerns. Corporate policy remains in place: any objects found to interfere with or manipulate time must be contained. Artifact will be moved to secure storage.

Okay, so they actually reconstructed and repaired the Piece of Eden. It's possible that it's still broken and that to fully utilize it they would need to repair it.

Sigv4rd
08-12-2013, 07:26 PM
Wonder if literal time travel will replace the Animus?

I try to look on the bright side... There are some good things that this POE make possible, for example: We can go back in time and kill Paul Revere :D

TheDanteEX
08-12-2013, 08:13 PM
Obviously they're setting up their universe for an Assassin's Creed MMOG. But really, hopefully modern day plot threads will actually go somewhere this time. It's about staying committed to the choices they've made. If we're lucky, they have the entire overarching plot already written and developed. We know they at least vaguely have an ending in mind.

Wow... They've reiterated this so many times... Sorry to dash your hopes. The reason for the cloud is that it allows anyone at all to access any memories that have been uploaded to the cloud.
THIS IS NOT A TIME TRAVEL REFERENCE. It just means that anybody can access Desmond's memories.

However, why use the term Abstergo "discovered something". No one ever comes out and says "I founded dropbox or skype". They usually use the term create.


Btw, this is why I prefer my interviews written. I don't have to decode people's facial expressions when they say things. Still, I take full responsibility. Sorry guys.

Well, it's not like that's something new, really.

We knew about those kind of technologies being developed at Abstergo ever since 2010 when ACB was released with its multiplayer which uses the basics of the same concept, though more simplified as it doesn't actually relive memories. And even before AC3 was released we knew about Liberation which uses that concept for entertainment purposes.

Bastiaen
08-12-2013, 09:32 PM

Then again, I have a hope that his conciousness survives in that his genetic memories, including his own, were uploaded to the cloud, so that while his body is destroyed, he survives, and is in fact, more resilient, though somewhat physically limited. Of course, that might just be me wanting it to be similar to my own sci-fi writing.

It's not really breaking the rules. It's just creating sudden rules that were never even hinted at before AC ceased to become a trilogy. It's spontaneous, that's why I don't think it's really playing by the rules all that well. Colour me doubtful.

Much like the treerunning, this is a simple case of language barrier. In both interviews, the Ubisoft rep was a native French speaker. Not blaming French at all. It's the simple fact that when working in a multilingual environment, you have to be extra cautious and clear about what you say,.

The foundation for the cloud concept and anybody reliving anybody's memories was placed in ACB with its multiplayer (in a much less advanced way than what they do with Desmond's memories, but still). Though, I don't know if you place ACB as "before AC ceased to become a trilogy".

Project Legacy and the DDS. Released before Brotherhood did I think.

I'm glad Assassin's Creed didn't become limited to just a trilogy. Those plans changed before AC2 released I'd bet anyway.

Source? No seriously, I see people throw this around, but as far as I'm aware, it's ACR that was originally both a DLC and a 3DS game.

There was going to be a DLC for Brotherhood in 2011 in any case, and instead we got ACR.

ze_topazio

I think the trilogy thing was just propaganda, they most likely planned the series to last as long as possible right from the start.

What? ACR was never a DLC, just a 3DS game.

And Brotherhood was originally planned to be released as Assassin's Creed II Episodes. This is the earliest news (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/235979/assassins-creed-2-episodes-release-date-september/) I could find, but at that time it already became a retail game (aka ACB), there should be earlier somewhere. And it didn't have multiplayer, that was something that was added with the transformation to ACB.

Jexx21
08-12-2013, 09:53 PM
Hmm...

I think I might be mis-remembering something then.

I think someone (UbiGabe?) said to expect more Assassin's Creed stuff in 2011, and members assumed that it would be more Brotherhood DLC.

Thanks. I eventually plan to write fantasy, though it's a LOT harder than sci-fi, at least to do it believably.

In AC3

After Desmond's death, the pivots become available to collect. After collecting them all, Desmond's memories were successfully uploaded to the cloud. Basically we were somehow extracting or hacking his memories by collecting the pivots. At that point, perhaps we were playing on the cloud.

Hmm...

I think I might be mis-remembering something then.

I think someone (UbiGabe?) said to expect more Assassin's Creed stuff in 2011, and members assumed that it would be more Brotherhood DLC.

Well, we did get Brotherhood DLC in form of Da Vinci Disappearance, but I'm pretty sure Gabe was referring to the Lost Legacy (wasn't that the same statement which also said that there's not going to be a console title, but there's going to be AC stuff? That was about LL)

Well, I'm really impressed with ACR now, if they did all of that in 10 months o.o

Thanks. I eventually plan to write fantasy, though it's a LOT harder than sci-fi, at least to do it believably.

You're welcome. :) Yeah, I definitely agree with you. You have to absolutely think of everything. -_-

Thank you for the explanation!! :D

They did. I was talking to Patrick Plourde once, and he said that the ACR team also had to learn how to use the toolset which the AC2/ACB team was already really comfortable with, so that was also a big complication.

What if this POE is Ourboros? Like what that Hex Code was after syncing to the Cloud?

I think ACR is better than both AC2 and ACB, except I didn't like the lack of side missions and the lies about there being more than two randomly occurring missions... but Constantinople is my favorite city in the series (pretty much just because of Galata Tower, the Hagia Sophia, and the Hippodrome, but still :/) so I have to give them major props.

Precisely. His accent was hard as it is to understand. But you guys understand right? I swear, I didn't intentionally spread this deliberately to misinform.

It ain't your fault frosty! If anything it's a massive relief.

LOL, that reminds of of Hitchiker's Guide to the galaxy when they start talking about the semantics of time travel, which in turn, reminds me of Bioshock Infinite, when the Lutece's are having a similar discussion "Will have been!"

How can I do that?

You can't, Mod's can.

Weird how they just gave away the whole modern day plot in a random interview.

Apparently they didn't. Read the rest of the angry comments above and my elaboration. A combination of poor English, a cheeky dev and a forum member that would believe anything cause this. My bad

To clarify, mine wasn't an angry reply. I just didn't want things to get out of control, like with the tree running.

Yes, you can. Click edit post, then go advanced options. There you can change the thread title.

But it won't actually change the thread title, just the title of the post.

We should have the option to change our own thread titles, as well as having a MOBILE SUPPORT FORUM.

Here here!

This never worked for me before, I thought it only changed the subtitle, and that the thread title was permanent unless you requested the mods to change it

Source? No seriously, I see people throw this around, but as far as I'm aware, it's ACR that was originally both a DLC and a 3DS game.

There was going to be a DLC for Brotherhood in 2011 in any case, and instead we got ACR.

Have you played AC2 lately, I'm playing it at the moment and on the title screen it keeps saying DLC Brotherhood coming soon, which is funny when you consider the game is four years old and brotherhood was not DLC. You would think they would of removed that notice from the title screen by now

From what I remember, AC2 didn't even have a news screen. o.o

I'm pretty sure that's referring to the actual Brotherhood DLC. Other games do this with new releases, whether that be a new game in the franchise or DLC. For instance on Battlefield: Bad company 2s title screen it refers to the Battlefield 3: Premium edition.

Well if that is the case shouldn't it be about AC3's DLC not Brotherhoods, considering AC3 is the latest Game

They tend to only update it to a certain point. As no-one is still buying AC2 they probably just didn't bother updating it or something.
