Ubisoft: Desmond’s Assassin’s Creed days are numbered

We've seen quite a few Assassin's Creed releases since the first one hit shelves back in 2007, and even though we've met a lot of different characters along the way, one thing has remained the same: modern-day assassin Desmond Miles is constantly featured throughout the series. That may not be the case for much longer, however, as Assassin's Creed 3 creative lead Alex Hutchinson tells Polygon that the Desmond story line has to wrap up sooner or later, presumably with the series continuing after Desmond's tale has come to an end.

Sure, we've got Back to Karkand and Close Quarters, but those didn't really add anything that plays to the grand scale we know Battlefield is capable of. Enter Armored Kill, which takes the battle from cramped indoor locations and moves it to sprawling outdoor arenas that are perfect for some vehicular combat.
