Ubisoft Is Rushing Assassin’s Creed Revelations To Beat The Apocalypse

For the third year now, Ubisoft is releasing a major Assassin's Creed title per year in addition to the smaller spinoffs, but there is a sound reason behind this accelerated schedule: The development team wanted to conclude the series' story before the world ends in 2012.

To be more precise, the story of Assassin's Creed has adopted a real-life wide-spread belief that the apocalypse will happen on December 21st, 2012 and this is why the development team felt that they should finish the game before passing that date in real-life.

"In Assassin's Creed we set up a timeline with this whole end of the world plot of December 2012," Ubisoft's Alexandre Amacio revealed. "That's fast approaching, and the story we have to tell, we obviously need to do it before we arrive at that point."

"We had such a complex and strong narrative that we ourselves did our best to just try to execute these games before that date," he continued. "It would be stupid of us to be centering a game on a semi-reality and then have that conclusion happen after that date in real life."

The story of Desmond will be wrapped up in this year's Assassin's Creed: Revelations, but this doesn't mean the end of the series. Instead, the game will introduce new protagonists in other interesting points in history. The release schedule will slow down after the release of Revelations though.

"We're already structuring the way we do Assassin's Creed, so it will no longer ever be like that," said Amacio. "Our development approach is changing so our cycles aren't structured the same way -- so it gives us a little bit more development time."

This Game is Awesome.

This game/game series is amazing. I have played literally hundreds of games in my life and this one is probably my favourite (until the new tomb raider comes out). The graphics are amazing. The characters are complex and the game-play and controls become so natural to work around that it gets like second nature. Not to mention the brilliant storyline. I also personally love the response to people around you when you start climbing up buildings, it's hilarious.


To all those loosers who hate AC series, all of you guyz can only play Dave. You are the biggest loosers in the history of gaming. Why do you care to comment if you dont like the series at all?


great two punks fight in words like kids if you like the game just play it if you hate the game ..well don't play why do you care if they make millions or billions idiots both of you


Even if the world "ever" ends wtf are you going to do with the money. Just like Fallout, a million dollars per person for the shelter and at the end they trade bottle-caps.

the game does NOT suck
You probably say that cuz you are an idiot and the game is too hard for you so you get frustrated

Why the game does not suck:
1.Awsome grafics - couldn't tell if it's a movie or a video game
2.Great story
3.Not too hard or too easy - its perfect
4.It has some of my favorite things :
-Aliens (Shown at the end of AC2)
-Sword fights and etc.

Well that's just why i like it , others have their reasons
