Desmond Not In Assassins Creed 4, Sort Of
We've all heard about Assassins Creed 4 by this point, and if you haven't, feel free to educate yourself here, and here. What has been recently announced is that Desmond will not be in the game as a character, to much rejoicing. What will happen though, is the continuation of the story beyond the 'Desmond Arc' - presumably combating Juno in some form or another - with Desmond's actions referenced within the future narrative. There's actually a whole developers Q&A available at All Games Beta with a ton of extra details about the upcoming game. Feel free to check it out.
