To be fair, there's not much to work with there...

To be honest, I thought this ending for him was great - mostly because he ACTUALLY ended...

uh, shocked, confused, and head tilting.
the hologram what she said as she look at desmond, no clue what she ment.
if there could be anthor AC game, it would be like brotherhood/revelations, not AC4. but, question is, if AC get anthor game, what is the setting going to be after Colonies. let me know.

After the "find Eve and go through the gate on Dec 21" from Brotherhood and the vision presented to Desmond in the sync nexus from Revelations, where a woman (who I thought might have been Eve) was holding a baby in what was probably a 1st civilization city, had me thinking that Desmond & Eve would be somehow going through the gate back in time. Of course, that didn't happen.

At the end of Revelations, Jupiter said that much is still in flux, both in Desmond's time and in his. I was left with the impression that the 1st civilization was looking for help from the future to perhaps save them somehow.

Guys they could still stick with the same exact story and just have William enter the Animus. I mean he is also a direct link to Altaïr, Ezio, and Connor.

Unless it was Desmond's MOTHER that was the link...

I mean, does the dad strike you as the sort of guy that would allow someone ELSE to do something important if he were able to do it?

I should have seen this coming. When Haytham was telling Connor how the Templars will never die, I knew for sure this game would have a cliffhanger ending too.

So yes, they save the world and then what's next? The fight continues... but compared to this world-saving quest just a regular fight with templars would seem dull, wouldn't it?

Enter Juno.

...but did Desmond really had to die? (If he really is).
...did Daniel Cross have to die? (and like that?!)
...Did Vidic have to die? (AND LIKE THAT?!?!?!?!?)

I am more angry about the anticlimatic deaths those 2 had. Cross and Vidic of all people, the latter deserved a dignified death, not just a friggin' shot to the head (I like what Desmond did with the apple afterwards though).
And Cross! This guy that gets developed in many comic books and overhyped in AC Initiates! Just... just like that, a regular death, not even a cinematic.

And I didn't like the epilogue, how this unknown person suddenly says stuff about the pivots... they said it's Erudito and the MP might help expand that. Hopefully.
And yes, I want to see more of Connor, specially after the epilogue was so anticlimatic too... the last ''mission'' is a conversation where they say his land was sold to a guy in New York... and that's where it ends...

Thanks for the epilogue spoilers there, jackass.


As for the ending, it was garbage, just like the rest of the game. The worst game in the series got a horrible ending. No surprises there.

So let me get this straight: You're posting in a thread that has "Spoilers" in the title in capital letters, mind you, and you're calling someone a jackass for posting spoilers?

Well, it's clear that Desmonds story itself is over. BUT Desmonds past story might not be over yet.
If "synched to the cloud" really means that Desmond DNA-data are available in a virtual cloud, then maybe someone new will access Desmonds data for finding some clues against Juno. So we might see Connor again.

Aside from that I'm totally with the theory that we will go back to the First Civilisation in the next game - Shaun clearly hinted that.

PS: I liked how the ending explained the bible - Someone who survives the sun eruption will later be known as a god and so on... =P

Uh. . . Connor is not dead. . . And You can bet many dollars we'll see Brotherhood/Revelation spin-off type games for Connor.

I also don't think we've seen the last of Desmond. Juno was stored in the Machine, one of the experimental technologies the First Civilization tried to save themselves with. If you remember, the process of "storing" a person inside the machine worked, but recreating said persons physical form required "something Terrible, something wrong".

This something terrible seems to be a human sacrifice of sorts. Activating the machine to give life back to someone stored in the machine required the activators body to be destroyed. Desmond was the Real "Key" that Juno needed - or Rather Desmond's DNA - in order to activate the Machine so Juno could be reborn.

Desmond's physical body Might be dead, but his consciousness was almost definitely swapped with Juno's. Desmond is now stored inside the Machine like Juno has been for 75,000 years.

Well I didn't hate the ending... although I didn't like it either. For me it is like the Mass Effect 3 ending if they faded to black during the dialogue with the illusive man and rolled credits...

The virtual Desmond theory is a popular one right now.
How would that work, I wonder? Would we be trapped again in a virtual world similar to Revelations? After having those awesome missions in the real world it would seem very underwhelming.

I don't care what Deus Ex Machina they use, I just want Desmond alive and physically present in the next game.

I enjoyed the exploration part of this game in the frontier, the storyline was pretty weak though and the story missions over very fast. Lot of plotholes/stupidity such as when Charles Lee lures the soldiers into a trap so you can rescue Pitcairn, how does that general guy not recognise him.
Haytham should really know Connor has a couple of hidden blades on his wrists, seriously.
Charles Lee as well, just stand there and gloat whilst Connor is fumbling for his gun right in your view, oh dear he shot you.
Charles Lee again not learning, yeah give Connor your bottle to drink from and then grab that knife he's left out in the open on the table...or just wait for him to enjoy a tasty beverage and stab you.
Connor hide the key where no-one will look,...yeah put it in a grave,,...no-one has heard of grave robbers.

Connor is a poor assassin for me compared to Altair and older Ezio

I hope they are done here on this little story as they are too close to the present in Desmonds dna brainthing for it to be interesting if he is alive and goes into the animus again. For me I would like to see some form of game that visits older Assassins, been hoping for that ever since in AC2 or whichever Ezio adventure it was where he goes into the cellar of his home and there are statues paying homage to the peeps who killed Genghis Khan, Cleopatra etc,....a game where you had to relive those assassinations would be good if they haven't made it on the PSP or something else I don't have.

Fully tested for glitches before release also if it's not too much to expect of them.

On a sidenote I'd prefer they made a massive openworldy sized game that is set in the Caribbean pirate times, and you get to rock around in your ship and explore treasure islands and take over ports etc,...something like Sid Meier's Pirates game with the ship sailing engine from this game would be fun.

In my opinion. a possible Assassin's Creed IV should be a story where Desmond is indeed... dead. BUT somehow Minerva with the help of our heroes Shaun, William and Rebecca finds a way to reverse current events, or something. Desmond comes back alive, Juno is not set free and we have ourselves an Assassin's Creed game that takes place 100% in present time. Desmond goes for the source of Abstergo (Vidic's death was also bad) and stops the satelite launch.
There's really no point to go for more ancestors and reveal more unnecessary keys, maps, temples, PoE's. Just finish up this franchise with a grand slam. Not like this ending.
What more do you need to stop the sun from throwing a flame-booger at the Earth, really?

AC is my favourite game franchise unquestionably, but too much of it is gonna get somewhat repetative and weak,

Seems to me like it is. Don't lose faith in AC fans at least, we come up with all sorts of things and discussions are always great.

I just feel that Desmond should still be the protagonist after everything they made him out to be. ''Desmond has a very special dna, linked to dozens of ancestors and as such has a high concentration of first civilization dna and assassin memories''. That's more or less what they said in an interview.

My problem is that he's just such a crappy character. I must have launched him off the edge of that building 20 times, just because I enjoyed him dying...

Garbage, the whole thing.

So he touches the sphere and his consciousness is more than likely now in the precursor computer cloud thing.

Juno has escaped suspended animation in there or whichever way they spin that detail.

by touching the sphere, someone snapped their fingers and made the sun magically not flare?

Unless i'm missing a lot more story from not playing MP I don't really get it.

Ubi had an incredible franchise with this game, but I'm pretty sure greed and MP ruined it.

Does anyone know if they explained how Haytham is related to Desmond, yet is a Templar? Where did the family cross that line is what I want to know?

Uh... Haythem is related to Desmond because Desmond is related to Connor, who in turn is related to Haythem as his son... Ok.

Going from Assassin to Templar doesn't change your genes (or does it? No. Not at all).

As for the ending, I liked it... Made me curious to see where they will go from here. Desmond or not, excited for the possibilities.
