The original Assassin’s Creed trilogy would have ended with Desmond and Lucy leaving on a spaceship

To boldly go.. okay, you know the rest.

In a paper written by Lars de Wildt, who researches conspiracy theories, religion, and other beliefs in digital media culture, the original ending to Assassin’s Creed 3 would have seen Desmond and Lucy leave Earth on a spaceship – the plan being to continue the human race elsewhere after the end of the world in 2012. Like a modern-day Adam and…

Others simply had no idea what they were supposed to be making. “Nobody knew what the fuck they were doing,” said one former developer.Skull & Bones development began back in 2013, as a multiplayer expansion to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag that would release as a post-launch update, three sources with knowledge of the project’s origins said. The expansion soon took on a life of its own, however, morphing into a full blown MMO-like spin-off with the working title Black Flag Infinite, and later a brand new pirate game called Skull & Bones.The…
