View Full Version : What happens if Desmond doesn't save the world in time?

Been looking at a bunch of theories about Desmond and his role in saving the planet, assuming it will undergo a catastrophic event.

But what happens if he doesn't save it?
Desmond saving the world is predictable, but that isn't Corey May's style, so....what happens?

If he doesn't save the world, does the cycle repeat?

Who knows? That would be a way to leave the future open for more games, but I think they want to resolve this story a bit better than "to possible be continued..." That's just my opinion though.

I only think, IN MY OPINION WHICH IS TOTALLY NOT FACT, that people are bored by the lack of Information regarding the game so rather than wait, they discuss things that, ALSO IN MY OPINION AND IS NOT ENTIRELY FACT, will not lead us anywhere and may, ALSO MY OPINION, not lead to a fruitful discussion. thats it

On topic. I can see devs themselves pulling this off, having Desmond fail (or succeed only a bit by, let's say, saving some people for future). This would kind of reset the universe, something like ME3 ending. Not unrealistic. It's almost granted that they will have some kind of a final big twist.

>_> why do you people like this torture lmao

OT: I have been having a feeling that Desmond most likely will not be saving the world. I believe that he will be in the vault and forced to repopulate the world with this mysterious woman that has been talked about since AC:B....that why they need him to find this girl so that his lineage can always have a high enough concitration of TWCB DNA so they can guide them through the Assassin/Templar war in the future. That is why Clay in AC:B states, "It's too late to save them. Everything that you hope to become, everything you hold dear. It's already gone."

Personally, I do not see this happening. this would throw off a lot of story pillars that construct the core of the Assassin's Creed universe. The games of the franchise need the Animus, a modern protagonist, a historical protagonist, a historical period and location that is unique, and the constant war waged between Templars and Assassins.

If Desmond does not succeed, it could be very messy to incorporate all these essential parts after a complete reset of the universe.

To everybody saying it would be a subversive or "deep" ending, no it wouldn't. It would be a lazy cop-out ending, and it would mean that we played through the last FOUR. (FOUR) games for absolutely nothing. If you want to make the hero lose you don't stretch things out to five effing games. Sure, fine, Desmond could die. That's OK. But he should succeed first.

Corey actually already mentioned that there's a big spoiler/surprise with Ratonhnhaké:ton and why he is the way he is (reserved, wants to help people etc) aside from just having his village attacked and being an outsider due to his ethnicity.

But that's for Ratonhnhaké:ton, I wonder if there's gonna be big story twist, related to Desmond/TWCB/Temples etc

dont forget he has to save the world from 2 things. destruction by the sun and mind control by men. My guess has always been that he can only do 1 thing and I doubt destruction is a option.
Without a nice cliffhanger the wait for ac4 will be more boring anyway.

I don't see Desmond failing. It would be interesting if an ancestor was looking back to see how Desmond almost beat it, but it's just bad design to make the player lose. Gamers play games to get a happy ending, to be the hero, maybe that is a little restrictive for storytelling but there is nothing wrong with that.

not necessarily, i originally called M a hypocrite because he was telling people to mind their own business. However whenever someone has said that to M or he has been in a similar situation he has always used the argument that this is an open forum and people are allowed to put their two cents in. I was simply pointing this out to him. Now he was so eager to point out what i said to him in a PM, but was not eager to say what he said back, he is a sneaky one that's for sure. Lightrey on the other hand has proven over the past to be a hypocrite. So no, that doesn't make me a hypocrite, i didn't say no one was allowed to put their two cents in. I wasn't a hypocrite in the first place at all, i didn't care whether they said something to me as i just simply give it back :)
