I was just going through IMDB and stumbled across the listing for AC2 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1201133/fullcredits#cast), which contained some characters that I don't think have been identified before.

Caterina Sforza
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caterina_Sforza

Queen Isabella
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabella_I_of_Castile


Found another source of info about Caterina:
http://www.womenwholead.org/caterina_sforza.htm

"By the time she was 15, Caterina's childhood had ended. Her family married her to Girolamo [JEER-oh-LA-mo) Riario, a grown man in his twenties. The Riario family had risen to sudden prominence when Girolamo's uncle was elected Pope Sixtus the Fourth. As wife to the pope's nephew, Caterina could expect to gain great wealth. The world would have been amazed if Sixtus had not used his position to advance his family's fortunes."

She was born in 1463, so she was married in 1478, which is right around one of the dates we know AC2 takes place in.

I'm confused... Why has Altair changed from being voiced by Philip Shahbaz to being voiced by Owen Thomas? And why is Ezio's voice actor not listed/stated? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I don't see why they wouldn't have them.

That second link i posted about Caterina is pretty interesting. She has a lot of connections to different families, including the Medicis. And the Sforza family has connections to da vinci in Milan.

maybe they are going for an older sounding Altiar, or maybe the actor just wasn't available/wanted too much money/whatever.

As for the lack of Ezio, it's definitely an incomplete list.

Perhaps they got the main character all wrong and what they meant was that Owen Thomas will be voicing Ezio… http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I read on IMDb that he voices Altair. Maybe he's in a flashback or something, but I'm betting someone messed up on it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I could see the codex being narrated by an older sounding Altair, or some kind of flashback, anything along those lines.

Man! I wrote a whole thing about all the known characters and how they connected way back when the first info about AC2 came out... but I can't find it anymore... i might still have a copy of it on my computer somewhere though.... hmmm

oh and by the way, i find it interesting that altair is listed there... maybe he will have a small role at the beginning.

EDIT: but its weird that its a different voice actor for him this time, which is good because I didn't like the guy from AC1 that much...

Caterina Sforza isn't really new, she was mentioned in the Gameinformer article back in April.

AC2 takes place in 1486.

Though with Leonardo, it might be a possibility, but it wont be historically accurate.

Well, as evil said a coupe posts ago, Philip Shabaz (sp?) is on the list for the AC2 cast. But altair is played by Owen Thomas. I need to hear voice clips from all of the male actors on the list and see which one sounds most like the "Hey, I remember you..." voice.

About 29 seconds into the clip Gideon is speaking.

In assassins creed 1 we play with Desmond Miles (2012) and with Altair(1190).In Assassin's Creed 2 , we will play as Desmond again.Patrice Desilets (creative director) said that in one of the first videos.Just this time we will play in another time with another assassin (Ezio Auditore Da Firenze).But we will play as Deasmond. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The thing that confuses me is that they seem to have gotten the Altairs original voice actor so they can't have had any issuses with him or gettin him back.
So why have another person listed for the voice acting of Altair, well maybe like some said he needs to sound older, and even then that could mean we actually see Altair because if he has gotten older and sounds different it would make sense to prove it really is him speaking otherwise it could be any random old guy.
So Philip and Owen are their, at the moment it looks like Owen is taking up the role of Altair, but Philip may still do it because the list doesn't seem to official so we may still see(hear) Philip return to his role.
Personally i think it is a mistake that has yet to be corrected and Gideon does sound like he could be Ezio if he put on a Italian accent.
All we really know for sure from these sources posted here is Altair is very likely to be present in some form in AC2 and could possibly have a different voice actor.

Maybe it will start with Altair entering a dark cave along with a few other assassins.
He looks very old and he doesnt exspect to live much longer. He walks infront of the little group and tells them to but "the piece" "over there" while he points in some direction.
Two of the assassins then enter the cave with a big box, and places it where Altair told them to. Then the screen goes black and its like "300
years later." And Ezio is there, perhaps kissing a pretty girl, right before the girls father enters the room, shouting for guards. Ezio jumps
out the window and it will be like a big chase thingie.
