You’re getting 20 years of Abstergo in Assassin’s Creed whether you like it or not

Did you play Assassin’s Creed: Unity and feel like you got shorted on the Abstergo storyline? Miss Desmond Miles? Good news! Ubisoft heard your complaints and assured gamers that they’ll be cramming more modern-day antics into future Assassin’s Creed games. Lead writer Darby McDevitt revealed that the use of Monteriggioni in Assassin’s Creed 2’s past and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’s future may be a template for how the team would like to handle Abstergo antics. Fans of the way Unity handled the issue by toning down the Abstergo storyline entirely should brace for disappointment.

“I’ve been working the past two years, with all the other writers, on getting a great document together on the First Civilization. We created 500, 600, 700 years worth of history that we hope to start teasing out for the next 10, 20 years or however long we’re around.”

Although the next Assassin’s Creed game hasn’t been officially announced, rumor has it that it will be set in Victorian London.
