Can the writer of the recent Assassin's Creed game clear up your confusion?

Kotaku completed a recent interview with Jeffrey Yohalem, the writer of this latest installment of Ubisoft's action/adventure. Yohalem had some interesting comments about the surprising and enigmatic conclusion to the game.


""We're not going to lose the reins of this," Yohalem says. "It's very clear where we're going. We don't just make things up out of thin air. It's very thought out. It's all going toward something really big, so stay tuned."

Among other things, Yohalem confirmed that the new voices heard during the credits of the game are new characters not yet encountered in the story. He also spoke about the apparent death of series mainstay, Lucy (played by Kristen Bell), claiming that Bell may not even know what happened to her character. No matter what players might have thought of the shocking conclusion, Yohalem seems pleased about the narrative decisions.

"Ultimately a season of a TV show ends on a cliffhanger… I love the moments in the West Wing when he's been shot — or has he? — or there's that terrorist attack on the president in one season and you wait all summer to find out whether he's alive or isn't he."

You can read the rest of Yohalem's comments from Kotaku's original post on the subject.
