Do have any idea who those 2 guys are and why they are with Desmond?

It seems like they're hinting that Desmond himself might be someone ELSE'S ancestor, and that Desmond reliving Ezio's life was a memory within a memory.

That is what I thought too. But if you read what dark-daventry posted. He got some good points about it.

I'm not actually sure I understand  Dark daventry's explanation (DD, maybe you could elaborate.)  I think the memory-within-memory/Desmond is someone else's ancestor is EXACTLY the type of plot twist the series writers would throw in there.  It fits the mythology very well anyway.

I cannot explain it. I am not very good at explain things. You are going to have to let dark daventry explain what he means.

So, you are thinking like me? Now, Desmond is living in the year 2012 right? So, what year do you think game is going to base on? I am thinking may the year 2050 because they always say that the world is going to end that year if "2012" does not happen.

I was referring mainly to the video that you posted, NW15. I believe the series could very well (and frankly, should) take that kind of plot twist. Again, the ending cutscenes for AC:B are not fresh in my mind, so I'd have to rewatch them to really formulate my thoughts. But based on memory alone, I'm positive that a pregnant woman is not reliving Desmond's life. They state very clearly in the clip you linked that they were referring to Subject 15, two test subjects before Desmond (Subject 17). It is possible that desmond is a memory within a memory, and it's also possible that it's not. We'll have to wait until they announce the next major AC game, which should happen by E3 in June at the latest. Considering it's been confirmed that another major AC game would be coming in 2011, the latest they could possibly announce said game would be E3 in june. Ideally though, they'd want to do it before that. Mayhaps GDC 2011 is a good place?

I just love Assassin's Creed so much.  I hope they announce the game tomorrow and release it by Friday.

I love Assassin's Creed too. But I'd rather Ubisoft take their time developing each installment. Even if each installment is great, eventually people are going to tire of AC, especially if it follows a yearly release schedule. Annualizing a franchise, in my opinion, is more of a get rich quick scheme that works to some degree. The only real reason a franchise is annualized is because it's successful and popular, which is great. Most of the time, the first few annual releases are great. But over time people start to get tired seeing the same franchise come out year after year. I have no doubt the next few AC games are going to be great. But eventually it'll get to the point where people just don't want to play anymore, or take a break. Maybe that's just me though.

Why are you sorry? There's nothing to be sorry for. I misunderstand things all the time. We're all human. Unless you're a Grue or something. That'd be a different story.

Well E3 is in june, and that's the biggest video game event of the year. That's where the next best things are made public. Almost all next gen consoles are announced at the venue. Almost every major company in the industry (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, EA, Activision, Ubisoft, etc) have press conferences where they announce their upcoming games, and in the case of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, there's usually some new hardware thrown in every five or six years. Previously, AC2 and AC:B were announced prior to E3. I'm just stating E3 as a deadline. If they are serious about releasing a new AC game in 2011, they HAVE to announce it by June. They can't possibly expect to get good sales after June. They have to have enough time to do PR. You see, this is the problem with annualizing a franchise. You're really relying on brand recognition alone. There's barely enough time to do PR work. Furthermore, you really have to start development concurrently with the other titles. I bet right now they're already hard at work on the next NEXT AC game. It only makes sense. They said that they started development on Brotherhood during the development of 2.

Lambomius, I know you were joking. There's no way you could possibly be serious about that. Unless you're a six year old kid who's had WAY too much sugar. Like a customer at Gamestop just the other night. I swear, this kid was on something. HE WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE!

What I'd like to know is when Brotherhood comes out for the pc, :P
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

Looks pretty cool. Though I'm getting really tired of Ezio, and rock music has no place in AC.

Yes, I have heard about this, and am anxiously awaiting it. Although I'll be at PAX East the day it comes out, so there's a good chance I won't be able to download it for some time. I'll be too busy waiting in line for seven+ hours just to tinker with the 3DS. If I'm lucky.

This is why I believe that the next AC game will not star Ezio and rather a new assassin in a new time period. At most, I can tolerate one final game with Ezio, though I feel as if Brotherhood wrapped his story up rather well. I think it's time we got a new assassin.

Well surely you can't expect DLC for an Assassin's Creed game starring Ezio NOT to star Ezio?  ;)

Nah, I hear ya.  If this was AC3 I might be rolling my eyes, but it's just a bit of DLC...and it looks like it'll be a reasonably solid story, too.  Which is cool.  :)

I've been playing Brotherhood lately, but I'm focusing more on the online multiplayer. Once I get sick of the multiplayer, I'll begin the storyline. I hear it's nothing short of amazing if not for the consistent plight of playing as Ezio (again). Still, it'll keep me occupied till the next game comes out. While I'm here though, is anybody playing the multiplayer on the PSN? My tag is Excifer, if anybody wants to play some matches.

I got the 360 version, so I can't play multiplayer with you. I have a PS3, I just like AC on the 360. The graphics are better on the 360 for this one series (well, at least with AC2).

I'm just glad they're finally getting single-player DLC for this game. And good DLC too. the DLC for 2 was kind of horrible.

No worries. It's perfectly understandable. The main reason I picked up the PS3, is because I don't have a 360. But it's also because of the Copernicus Conspiracy DLC that came with the game. I haven't gotten to yet, but it sounds good. I agree that the DLC for AC2 was pretty bad. It seemed "tacked" on.
