Assassin’s Creed followers are presently taking a visit down reminiscence street, it appears. A preferred submit in Reddit’s Assassin’s Creed group pulled up an outdated interview with franchise creator Patrice Désilets. Désilets in the end solely labored on Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed 2, and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, departing Ubisoft earlier than the conclusion of the collection’ first story arc. In this interview, nevertheless, Désilets discusses his “first spark” thought for the way the story of Desmond and the Animus ought to finish.
The interview in query comes from 2017 when the now-defunct Assassin’s Creed Initiates program interviewed Désilets about a few of his previous work on the franchise. Désilets is requested concerning the “original” plan for the top of Assassin’s Creed‘s story because it was first deliberate. Désilets refers to his “first spark,” which can or is probably not the unique plan however was on the very least Désilets’ first thought. Needless to say, it is a surprising alternative that sadly by no means got here to fruition.
Désilets says that his “first spark” thought was to have the world finish in 2012, as was foretold within the Assassin’s Creed video games. It seems that Désilets would have adopted by with the Mayan calendar’s prediction and had the photo voltaic flare finish all life on Earth. Desmond, nevertheless, would survive. He and Lucy would escape the destruction on a spaceship. Not precisely a cheerful ending after the entire gamers’ efforts, however it could definitely have been daring.
After escaping the destruction of Earth, Desmond and Lucy would use the Animus to “learn how to become perfect human beings.” They’d then begin humanity once more, utilizing all of humanity’s previous experiences in order to make a greater world and society. Desmond and Lucy would, in impact, have turn into Adam and Eve, with all of the information granted by the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.
Obviously, that is not the ending that occurred in Assassin’s Creed 3 or any of the opposite Assassin’s Creed video games since. Désilets left Ubisoft in 2010 and the Assassin’s Creed franchise took Desmond’s story in a totally completely different course. Désilets himself could have already got deliberate a wildly completely different ending as a part of his earlier video games, as this ending was simply his “first spark.”
Looking again, it is inconceivable to inform which course would have been higher for Assassin’s Creed. Desmond’s story ended up being extensively criticized, however not destroying the world allowed the Assassin’s Creed franchise to proceed. Ubisoft clearly prefers this manner, however followers may need chosen a correct ending — even when it resulted in Earth ending.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is on the market now on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
