What if the ending shows that Desmond Miles is actually just being shown through another ancestor reliving his memories? Just a thought.

If another ancestor is reliving Desmonds memories the amount of back story they would need to create to justify it would just be dragging it on. Plus is that even possible ? Relive an ancestor reliving an ancestor ? Why go through all that trouble when you can just cut the middle man out unless you need know what Desmond does even though he learns that from his ancestors ?

A future Assassin reliving the memories of Desmond, who is reliving the memories of Ezio, who is reliving the memories of Altair. ASSASSINCEPTION.

But seriously, wouldn't it be a mindblow if the Templar satellite was secretly designed to stop the solar flare? The Templars have Ezio's memoirs, so they know about the impending catastrophe. Then Desmond stops the launch and dooms mankind, until he somehow finds another way (at the last second, of course ;) ) to stop it.

Memories inside a memory? No thanks. It would be worse than the "Dream Sequence" in the 80's show Dallas, a whole season made up of nothing but dreams.

The WORST idea ever conceived and would pretty much end the Assassin's Creed series on the lowest of low notes.

The memory within a memory thing has already been done in Brotherhood. Desmond and Lucy talked about it plus we had the Christina Missions. This whole theory wouldn't be a total surprise as it would set up for the new protagonist. Just bc Desmond may be the new protagonist's ancestor doesn't mean Altair, Ezio, and Connor are related to the new protagonist.

Actually it does. Desmond's ancestors would be his descendant's ancestors. It's like my great-grandfather would be my grandson's great-great-great grandfather.

Err No..That is assuming they all come from the same line, which is not the case..

Ezio, Altair and Connor come from different lines..

I guess, I was just suggesting that on the same basis that Ezio is not Altair's blood relative and Connor probably won't be related to Altair or Ezio.

It's come up before and I'll say again now what I said then: Assassin's Creed is not The Matrix.
The concept of the Animus, though it does (naturally) touch upon it, has nothing to do with the arguable lack of difference or significance of said difference between virtual realities and reality itself. The Animus is a (plot) device meant to place historical events within the context of an overarching story, which reaches its climax in the present/future.

What if it happens like this,Desmond goes into the temple,saves the world,dies years later and the whole cycle starts over than his descendant has to find a way to stop it but Desmond never told them how he did it because he was told he couldn't and the descendant uses the animus to find the answer locked in his Dna and therefore needed to relive Altair,Ezio and Connor's memories and in turn those of Desmond because they are like doors that needed to be unlocked before he could see how Desmond saved the world,But i would also not like this type of ending.

Alex Hutchinson already confirmed at Gamescom and in Loomer's interview that they knew "exactly where they were going next"

With the ending, I'm glad Corey said it'll be a lengthy one. After 5 games of Desmond, we need a long, fulfilling closure.

I don't know why you guys are dismissing this. It would make for a very interesting ending. Just imagine, the Templars are using the satellite as blackmail - they will destroy the Earth unless people give in to their demands. Remember, they believe in absolutes. I could completely see them deciding that completely destroyed is better than unbalanced.

Desmond has to figure out how to use the satellite but without caving into their demands.

I'm excited for those. Ubisoft has never fail to amaze me. The epilogue missions could be a continuation and a short brief introduction of the next AC game. Perhaps they are introducing characters, or a descendent of Desmond, that needs to relive the life of his ancestors to find a solution to save the world from another catastrophe. This scenario is highly unlikely because that would be too cliche. Maybe we live the lives of people during the First Civilization and find out more about TWCB....ugghh I don't know what is the purpose of the epilogue missions but it could add to another cliffhanger I'm afraid.

I wouldn't take the developers word so literally. They have been somewhat inconsistent in the past with their pre-release statements. If it happens that we do get 2 1/2 to 3hrs of cinematics, that would be exciting to see. Perhaps a lengthy and epic ending.

However ACB had 2 1/2hrs, ACR had 2 3/4hrs and AC2 had 3hrs of cinematics so having 2 1/2-3hrs of cinematics isn't a stretch at all.

When we talk about cinematics, are we talking about in-game cutscenes or seperate cutscenes with CGI rendered graphics. There is no way that Revelations had anywhere close to 2.75 hours of cinematics. All I could remember is the ending of ACR which lasted approximately 8 minutes, Ezio's letters to Claudia, and the opening of Assassin's Creed. If we include the in-game cutscenes then of course it will be longer but there is absolutely no way it could be this long for Revelations considering the game could be finished in 10 hours or less (main story+side missions).

good thought. the conclusion would have to be that the Assassins have won a victory, even a major victory...but not "the" victory. no way AC3 is the end of the franchise. the idea that Desmond is another ancestor memory is a perfect setup....for the Templars still being a threat, and for going into other time periods and locations.

Maybe an actual choice would be given at the end of the game, similar to how Deus Ex: Human Revolution did. Desmond could choose whether to launch the satellite to control humanity or destroy it and save it. The reason I think this is because, throughout the game, we would be given the different, gray view points of the Templars and the Assassins, letting the player think for himself for what he thinks is the right thing to do.

As a bit of personal preferences, Daniel Cross could serve as the final boss of the game, him being the Templar sleeper cell in The Fall. It would be a great final fight to pit Assassin against Assassin/Templar.
