    An Alternate Reality, The Eye, and a Different Possibility [Spoilers]

    During the ending scene of ACIII, Minerva mentions taking a look one last time before "Leaving" to make sure that they're on the right track.
    In ACIII and according to the latest article and interview about The Tyranny of King Washington, it is mentioned that Desmond died but his memories are uploaded to the Cloud and that the game is indeed in an alternate reality and that when we "return" to our reality, all will be justified and we'll be like "Huh, interesting".

    No what if when Minerva looked into the device one last time, she saw that Desmond will heed Juno's idea and save the world so perhaps she might have done something different to prevent history from going the way we've know it throughout the AC game we've played so far which is what lead to another possibility in another timeline.

    Also, Juno did tell Ratonhnhake:ton about possibilities and how the outcomes change based on the present actions of the individual. What if what we've learned so far is all just one possibility out of many? What if in another timeline, Desmond doesn't even exist? what if anything happened in a way that we can't imagine that the other timeline is totally different?

    They built the franchise to reach an event in 12.21.12 and now we passed that date. The made the game and their release dates occur within certain number of years so that they make sure we learn the ending before that date to make the story more in synch with out lives. Now they wanna continue more games in the future so what if they're trying to do something that will also keep the games in synch with what happens in the years to come?

    They did mention before the release of ACIII that the ending won't be waking up from another Animus in the future and the most likely didn't do that (despite it being epic) because it seemed like a continuous cycle and a predictable one so maybe their way of messing with our heads and continuing the game is to somehow play with realities using info. the gave from in between the lines.

    Share your ideas...

    You're saying the events ilustrated in Assassin's Creed are Minerva's way of showing Desmond Miles what happens if Juno is released?

    Ok, hold on. I have a few questions

    1. So what you're saying is that all the events that happened with Altair, Ezio, and Connor are all just illusions to what they did?
    2. How would there be an alternate universe with Desmond's memories?

    1. I'm saying that we could've been playing one possibility of history in an alternate reality. So non of the things are unreal, they're all real to some extent depending on what Minerva's Eye Device mechanism. Each action has it's consequences, and the consequences change based on the actions done and some things remain fixed and others might change depending on the extent of the effects.

    2. They officially said that Desmond's dead in ACIII and his memories have been uploaded to the Cloud so there's a certain extent of this alternate reality in his genes for some reason.

    Well, the reason is simple, really... It's genetic memories. With the accent on 'memories'. Connor has seen an alternate reality, and he remembers it, and memory of that has passed on through generations onto Desmond. That's why we can view the TOKW alternate reality in the AC1-AC3 reality with AC1-AC3 Desmond's DNA.

    True. I'm just saying that the other possibility might be of bigger service to the franchise than just being a possibility. In this possibility, Connor's mother, Ziio is alive, George Washington is the king and he's corrupted so what are the consequences of that possibility in the future? if we go with that timeline, what would happen to Desmond?

    The DLC story was made on a dare. I doubt anything remotely canonical will come from it.

    But in the written interview, it is noted that it will be canon and within the AC universe...

    IMO the last thing we need is going down the road of alternative universes, this isn't Fringe, if this DLC is supposed to be canon, they better have a really good explanation for that, and they really should work better on communication between teams, because they advertise the DLC one way saying it isn't part of the story and then the creative director says it is...
