@NicholasPrasad Asks: Will there be any cameos from previous characters in the series?

Alex: There aren't any explicit cameos, but previous characters are alluded to in the story!

Connor Deconfirmed. Warranted own thread. Let us mourn :(

Alex already said in another interview they'd allude to Ezio and Altair. Connor was not mentioned at all.

Most we can hope for is Connor DLC in glorious current gen or a cameo in Comet

You know ... it doesn't really mean anything...

He could be playing on words.

If Connor has a significant part in the story of ACU, he won't be a cameo, but a main character ,you know what I mean ?

@m4r

I tend to believe most devs when they give blatant answers.

I mean, do we have instances in the past where Ubi Devs deliberately lied to us in order to conceal a surprise? I genuinely don't know because I haven't been in the fandom that long.

Given that this is now the second game since AC3 came out and Ubisoft clearly knows Connor fans want to see his return, they're either being rather vicious about keeping any news of him quiet or they've swept him under the rug and are now just beating it flat. With Unity having a movie to go along with it when they stated previously they didn't have the resources to do one for Connor, I'd be more inclined to believe the beating the rug flat theory at this point. This is certainly killing any of my interest in the series going forward.

Arno honestly doesn't interest me. All he looks like to me (from what I've seen) is another Haytham with Ezio sprinkled in. While I loved Haytham (I actually named my dog Haytham), I don't want to see a rehash of him. Then the whole white room removal just makes me think Arno's a memory vampire now. He "sucks" the memories of his victims out and views them rather than the typical white room moment. The fact that the game's also returning to a single city and Brotherhood and Revelations were decidedly not my favorite games along with the removal of horses (even though I can understand why that was done) doesn't make me excited, either.

I find it rather hard to really find anything to be excited about with this game. Every announcement, rather than exciting me, kills my interest that much more.

In regards to Comet, if it does star Eseosa rather than Shay, if Aveline's still alive (assuming she didn't die in the New Orleans fire of March 1788), why didn't Eseosa write to her instead of Connor? That's sexist, too. She's the older and more experienced assassin. She'd also be closer to the Caribbean due to being in New Orleans than Connor is in Massachusetts. She'd also be able to blend into the slave population far better than Connor. That either hints to me Aveline's disregarded even by fellow assassins (not just the fan base), she retired, or she's dead.

Arno does seem to share similarites to Haytham both in personality and background, but we'll see. Hopefully he'll bloom into something of his own.

Wasn't there another forum a while back that predicted that the title would be Unity and the setting would be French Revolution. If I remember correctly (I tried finding the forum but couldn't) they even guessed the name Arno right and in that post, He said Connor would help Arno. I don't know about you but I think we should be listening to that guy if he got all that correct.

Even legit leaks are often spliced with inaccurate information. Black Flag was accurately leaked a few months before it was announced, but the source also incorrectly stated that it would feature co-op play with a famous Scottish pirate. Now, this could have been something that was cut, especially considering that Mary Read's voice actress was initially auditioning for a Scottish pirate who was cut from the final game (so it was perhaps not explicitly "wrong" per se when it was leaked) but the fact remains that it didn't make it into the game. Maybe when this person first got wind of Unity and leaked it, there actually were plans to give Connor an appearance, but if the devs are flatly denying it now I have no reason to suspect they're lying.

Oh well, back to the drawing board. I did say that Connor wasn't going to be in Unity for about a month ago- hate to say I told you so. Even though Lafayette invited Connor to visit him in France, that did not automatically mean that he has to go. There's no logical reason for Connor to be there and I'm glad he's not. He deserves his own sequel and have it all to himself.

I like Connor, but aside from its Civil War, I just dont want a US setting ever again, or at least NOT in a near future. Connor ´s big chance was his own game, but AC III did not live up to the HUGE expectations and adding further insult to injury, Haytham outshined him....

I wished for a cameo, but After Unity, I want other eras and places. Even though I personally believe there might be a sequel for Unity featuring Napoleon´s Empire.

What's with this strange obsession concerning a Connor cameo? I mean I get that fans of him would like a proper conclusion, but would you really get that satisfaction from a simple cameo that lasts at most 1 minute?

Oh and also craving for a cameo makes no sense, isn't a cameo supposed to be a fun surprise instead of a OMG MUST HAVES?

What's with this strange obsession concerning a Connor cameo? I mean I get that fans of him would like a proper conclusion, but would you really get that satisfaction from a simple cameo that lasts at most 1 minute?

Oh and also craving for a cameo makes no sense, isn't a cameo supposed to be a fun surprise instead of a OMG MUST HAVES?

Because it almost feels like that closure. Oh we get to see him "older" ... it's the phrase something is better than nothing. Doesn't matter if it makes sense or not, because people have HOPE. Lol. (I was serious about the first two sentences)

Please continue to discuss the fan wish of Connor returning in the ongoing thread.


While this thread started out relevant, it has turned into another 'bring back Connor' thread - and we already have one of those - and the content of this thread, as per the first post - should be there, so everyone is aware.
