I reckon that AC3 will end Desmond's story, with Desmond and the other Assassins finding out what they need with Ratonhnhaké:ton and the world being saved from the great Templar attack. However, I think that AC3 will end the series for the current console generation (maybe we will see a few spin offs for consoles like the Vita but no main games) and the franchise will be rebooted in the next console generation (PS4, Xbox 720, etc.) called The Assassin's Creed (added "The"). Not that I don't like the Animus story, I think the concept should be removed. So memories will become missions and sequences will become chapters. We could have a setting like Victorian England (1800s) or maybe even WW2. What do you guys think?

how do you no. you say that with certainty wers youre evidence..
they will keep on with desmond until they He destroys the templar threat i.e. vidic in the present our very near future. All the AC have gone forward chronoloically, AC 1 1100 AC2 ACB ACR 1500.
Now AC3 1700. Its fair to say the next one will be 1800 to 2000. Probs late. 1800 early 1900 AC4 in london. Then they will have to do one of the ww2 involving hitler and germany. Thats AC5. Then the next one will be AC6. 2020. Desmond takes on the might of the templar withe the help of the apple of eden. AC7 will then be the first ever asasin. versus the first ever templar. 0001

he doesn't know it's just unlikely, we don't know how long until the next ten consoles come out and I'm sure ubisoft would want to make the most of the generation they've got at the moment

1- I know that AC III will be Desmond`s end, but NOT the series` end because I know Business..
2- The next AC will not be called "AC 4" or "AC IV" because this trilogy is for Desmond, AC with numbers ends with AC III.
3- And No AC doesn't HAVE to move forward in time; If you read articles, Ubi has mentioned that they don't have to go forward in time to continue Assassins Creed..

the next ac should be a prequal with S16 (who is much more interesting than Desmond) reliving his ancestors memories

"and the franchise will be rebooted in the next console generation (PS4, Xbox 720, etc.) called The Assassin's Creed (added "The")."

Really? Just, why? That would be money milking of the highest caliber, and also completely unnecessary. They have created a universe, not just a video game series. They didn't create all this for the past 5 years to throw it out the window and redo all of it.

Another point you mentioned, Vidic isn't "the Templar threat." Vidic is only an Abstergo doctor, and just one of many people who are in the Inner Sanctum of the Templar Order. He isn't the Templar Grand Master or anything like that.

Assassin's Creed 3 will be the final game to revolve around Desmond (The devs HAVE confirmed this). We don't know how his story will be wrapped up, but it will be wrapped up.

Multiple things could happen next. Ubisoft could make a bunch of spin-offs focusing on different characters in different time-periods/settings, or they could start a new story with a new present day protagonist. They could also go down the reboot path.

I personally want to see Industrial England, the Spanish colonisation of South America, Ancient Rome, Ancient China, Japan (Meiji, Edo, Muromachi or Sengoku periods), Russian Revolution, French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars.

They have a lot of choices that will please fans.

I'd love it if they make a series of six games roughly of revelations length focusing on the lives of those six assassins whose statues are in villa auditore

Its really exciting to think of the possibilities. AC is unique in this regard; its tied neither to one single protagonist nor a single time period. the devs can take it anywhere they wish.

I think that we won't see the "other girl" in this game and it will be the conclusion of Desmond. Stopping the destruction of the planet but not stopping it completley. Just postponing it and Desmond will rise as the next leader of the Assassin's.
Then the next trilogy will follow "the other girl (eve)" exploring her assassin lineage. And she will meet Desmond around the second game and they will stop abstergo for good around the third(5th xD) game.

Is there any chance that the Mediterranean defense is coming back. I thought that was a lot of fun managing the assassins guild and seeing what was going on in other parts of the world. :D

I'd like to see the next game kept in present day. But present day being 1900's.
It would be cool to have a game with the entire story set within the same period, and playing as an Assassin trying to stop the whole Plan coming together (In 1910 I think) and the creation of the corporate front.
I think the Animus concept will just become exhausted if the next game is just, 'lets shove another Assassin in an Animus device, call it Animus 4.0 and send them back to a time period". I think the entire universe has been expanded and explored enough for us not to have a link to a time period and the modern day. Maybe come back to the Animus concept after a few games without, when it is really necessary.
It'll make it more unique and exciting when we do come back to the animus :)

I wouldn't mind that, but I think Ubisoft can advance that whole system into something more engaging and impressive, so an advanced mediterranean defence would be more to my liking.

Like if its a mission where it is a big front on assault you send a Greek fire canon, but if it's a stealthy assassination you send one guy who is a specialist stealth assassin and maybe also have a class system for the recruits.

Lots of hints point toward a period of assassins doing scumbag things, and it'll probably take one more game or two to establish that. Next, probably a new person in the animus chair getting seriously disillusioned with their side, and then maybe the formation of some small independent group which seeks to destroy or bury all remaining artefacts so that neither of the two big teams can have them (since any large organisation is going to be corrupted once they combine political power with those objects).

I'd like to say we'll get 1890-1900 London, but Ubisoft just loves to mess with us so why tempt fate :(

AC3 is about desmond experiencing connor's life as an assassin to get the last bit of information the assassins need. you're idea is bizarre. by the end of revelations, theres only about a month left until the templar attack and assassins creed games span across years. desmond's sequences usually span across a few weeks or a month. and i doubt AC will even go up to a seventh game

I'm guessing that the next Assassin's Creed will feature 2-player co-op in free-roam maps.

This is all just guessing here, but I'd say ACIII will end with Desmond stopping the apocalypse and saving the world, maybe setting the Templars back a bit in the process. The game will probably however end with some kind of cliffhanger involving Templars gaining control of a powerful PoE. The future games will involve a new protagonist, who's another part of the Assassins' order, helping the Assassins' in a war against the Templars, while using the Animus for whatever reason. I'd like for the new protagonist's series to explore a lot more of the history of the order and how the modern Assassin and Templar orders operate. Desmond and his team will probably appear as supporting characters, if they survive the next game.

Ubisoft have confirmed that AC will have a yearly release so expect many more AC games.
I am also certain this one is the last one in Desmonds story (as has been said earlier)

I assume next years release will be on this and next gen (as the next round of consoles is expected next year)

Alex said that they already have next years' game featuring Connor planned out, but they're waiting to see if people will love him so they can make another one. After that spin-off they might possibly take a break and then start AC IV. They confirmed Desmond's story will end, but not Connor's or the AC series'. So, we can expect plenty more games. I remember Ubi saying they wouldn't mind an AC 10 :P

They are not going to wait ,i think they already started to make next game with Connor because they know that we will love him.And i would love even AC 20 if they keep making them this good :D

They can make nest numbered game for next year or not even for 2014 and that is one of main reasons they make spin offs
