The third and final Assassin's Creed game in the Ezio Trilogy, Revelations, won't answer all the burning questions clouding the series, the game's writer has said.
Lead writer Darby McDevitt has confirmed what we already knew; Desmond's story will continue beyond the next game, which means the Assassin's story still needs to maintain an air of mystery.
"Well, we wont answer everything because Desmond's story continues. But fans will definitely know most of the important details of Ezio and Altair's lives, and how they fit into the grand scheme," he said.
One major question is whether Ezio will survive Revelations, what with it being the Italian's final chapter and all. At the ripe old age of 52, he's getting on in years too...
"52 is a good age," the Ubisoft writer said, "but one must remember that Ezio and Altair are rather special people. Also, although 52 was old in the 1500s, it wasn't uncommon for people to live for quite a long time.
"Suleimon the Magnificent lived to around 70, and one Janissary [Sultan's bodyguard] that we found lived to be 104."
McDevitt remained tight-lipped on Ezio's fate, mysteriously adding that "hardcore fans know the logic of the Animus prevents us from seeing certain things in a character's life - but we also know how to pull a few devious tricks. Just wait and see."
Ubisoft has confirmed Assassin's Creed Revelations will appear in its line-up for Comic Con in San Diego next week.
