Bring Desmond Back!

When you left Desmond dead in Assassin's Creed III, one can only hope if Ubisoft will ever bring him back. I'm still thinking and wondering if Ubisoft will get around to bringing him back, as they kept mentioning Desmond as an Assassin in his early days in Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed II & Assassin's Creed III.

It would be nice to see New York City in the eyes of Desmond Miles, back when he was escaping and evading the law. You can use real events that have happened to unfold the story of Desmond Miles right up to the part before he gets caught. A certain individual sees Desmond on his last mission and the individual says "Are you sure you want him? I can bring him to the office when we've captured him. We'll run the Animus on him when we get there!"

The end credits appear, leaving us stunned to think that it continues with Desmond when we all know that it won't, but would be an epic to see Desmond in his early years.

POST UPDATES (LISTED BELOW):
Me, Warren Woodhouse, I've only played Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed Revelations, Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag & Assassin's Creed Unity.

Some new information involving Desmond has come to my attention and is presented by another Assassin in the comments below.

See this section for further updates to this post. More posts coming soon. Check back frequently.

    If they were to bring Desmond back, like his early years, then they would have to bring back Lucy and quite possibly people like Clay a.k.a subject 16...as from what I remember, William makes some comments in AC: Revelations while Desmond is on Animus Island about having trained both Lucy and Desmond together as children. I don't think Desmond knew up till that point. Lucy tends to jump between Assassin and Templar loyalty if you look into the back story. In one of the AC games, I forget which, you do start to gather bits of a file that shows the planning of capturing Desmond. So I guess they could make some kind of prequel to AC1 and end it with Desmond being put in the animus..then leading to beginning of AC1.

      The file you're on about is in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag as I just recalled a mission out of the Animus where you're actually have to hack through the firewall and end up retrieving confidential information for the Brotherhood.

    Desmond should definitely be brought back with some sort of awesome first civ technology.. They always banged on about trying to keep people alive in the first civ, so why not allow for that technology to be perfected right at the end, so we can see all the assassin's defeat a mega-boss? That also doesn't have to be the of it, although it sounds like it would be... I guess they don't want to do something drastic again in fear of losing fans

    I think Desmond is long gone from the series. He had a great run, but the story is no longer about him. They have moved on to a new story arc

      I know, but they mentioned him as an Assassin in the original games. Would be nice to ACTUALLY see that as an actual game, wouldn't it?

      oh...you don't know Desmond's backstory do you? Desmond grew up in a compound for assassins called The Farm. He was trained to be an assassin from birth, even if he didn't know it outright. He actually used these skills and ran away from it all and lived a normal life in New York until his abduction by Abstergo. He didn't want to be an assassin from the start

      How do you know that backstory? Which games did you find all that information in? I've played Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed Revelations, Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag & Assassin's Creed Unity.

      That particular part was found in Revelations. If you collect enough animus fragments and go do the Desmond Story missions on Animus Island, you will hear desmond talk about how his chlldhood. It is also in the Assassin's Creed Encyclopedia

    If they remaster AC1, they may use the new present day arc. So rather than play it as Desmond, they may allow player to revive the genetic memories of Desmond as well as his ancestor Altaïr. Maybe then, we could have the chance to play new sequences (something like prior he been captured by the Templars). Never know...

    Yes bring him back. He may have been a little grey in the beginning... But with living the game he got more important. He was the key between the Eden and the elders...
