Assassin's Creed: Revelations' creative director, Alexandre Amancio has confirmed that for the next major installment, Assassin's Creed 3, we will see a brand new protagonist.
The decision to use Ezio again in Revelations has received a mixed reception, but Amancio states that it was necessary to explain everything that's happened since Assassin's Creed 2.
"A lot of things were set up with things like Minerva, with Juno, a lot of details about the end of the world plotline in 2012. As we're getting closer and closer to the 2012 marker the franchise is sort of concluding its major opus.
"This game is where we're setting the record straight. We're closing all the loops that have been started that have been left in suspense and we're going to reveal not only a lot of stuff about the first civilisation plotline but we're also going to conclude the Ezio and Altiar storylines."
Revelations is due for release at the end of this year, and Ubisoft has also promised that the game will feature some... revelations.
